Billie Eilish finally opened up about her boyfriend Jesse Rutherford for the first time. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, titled “Same Interview, Sixth Year,” the pop star opened up about dating The Neighbourhood singer saying, “It’s really cool and I’m really excited and I’m really happy about it.”
Eilish further shared that she’s “really inspired by this person, and, you know, he’s inspired by me.” She added, “I managed to get…to a point in my life…where I not only was known by a person that I thought was the hottest f***ing f***er alive but pulled his ass! Are you kidding me? Can we just [get a] round of applause for me? Thank you, Jesse Rutherford, everyone.”
Eilish’s revelation comes the same month that she and the musician made their red carpet debut in a Gucci blanket, and six years after her first go-ahead at a video interview with Vanity Fair, which has become a yearly tradition for the Grammy winner. Rutherford and Eilish have been slowly bringing their relationship into the spotlight after sparking romance rumours last month.
The couple initially met sometime during or before December 2017 and spent Halloween together this year. Meanwhile, Eilish made their relationship Instagram official with a photo of them in funny couple’s costumes. The singer penned in the caption, “Life is crazy.” However, Eilish and Rutherford poked fun at their 11-year age gap with her dressed up as a baby, wearing a bib and bonnet, while he went as an old man.
Moreover, Eilish’s brother Finneas O’Connell approved of the relationship in an interview with E! News at the GQ Men of the Year party last week, saying “Listen, as long as she’s happy, I’m happy.” Meanwhile, Eilish has previously been romantically linked to the rapper Q (whose real name is Brandon Adams) and spoke about the relationship in her 2021 Apple TV+ documentary The World’s a Little Blurry.
Earlier to Rutherford, Eilish was last linked to actor Matthew Tyler Vorce. They recently parted ways. Just after their breakup, several cheating rumours were also swirling around. After splitting in May 2022 Matthew addressed rumours about the cause of their breakup, writing, “Nobody cheated on anyone. Relationships end. Simple as that. Creating rumours and LYING on the internet is dangerous.”
