Everyone was shocked when Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford ended their romance after less than a year. Due to their eleven-year age difference, their romance garnered media attention from the beginning.
When the couple first met, Billie was 20 years old, while Jesse was 31. In a statement announcing the breakup, her staff claimed that the couple had done it 'amicably.'
A spokesman further verified the news, saying: "We can confirm Billie and Jesse did split amicably and remain good friends."
They also refuted any claims that Billie's attendance at the Met Gala by herself in May signalled the end of their relationship as a result of adultery.
Since they had known one other for six years before starting their relationship, their huge age difference caused several people to criticise their relationship. Fans were upset by this since it implied that the two were close while Billie was still a minor.
After they dressed up as an old man and a baby for Halloween in an effort to draw attention to the criticism they had been receiving, things became more heated. When questioned about the remarks, Billie responded:
"Say what you need to say, but, like, I am in control right now. I did this."
