Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford have separated after seven months of dating.
The singer, 21, and musician, 31, confirmed they had parted ways “amicably” in a statement to Page Six on Wednesday.
A spokesperson for Eilish said: “We can confirm that Billie and Jesse parted ways amicably and remain good friends.”
They also denied that the relationship ended due to cheating. Eilish and Rutherford were last seen together at Coachella in April.
The couple’s cross-age romance had sparked controversy as Billie was 20 and Jesse, 31, when they started their romance.
Billie and Jesse made their red carpet debut at the prestigious 2022 LACMA Art + Film Gala in November 2022.
Billie was first linked to neighborhood singer Jesse when the two were spotted by a fan at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights in October 2022.
The creator uploaded a clip of the two walking closely together on TikTok and added a caption to the post, “OMG I just saw Billie Eilish at Horror Nights.”
In the short reel, the stars appeared to be holding hands as The Neighborhood band member led the singer out of a spooky-themed maze.
Although Jesse’s face was not shown in the video, other social media posts showed that he was at the park with not only Billie, but also his older brother, Finneas.
In the blink of an eye, Jesse was wearing a leather jacket similar to the one worn in the now viral TikTok video.
The Grammy winner also uploaded a post of herself posing in a bathroom, also taken at the busy amusement park.
Rumors quickly filtered through the internet and the two were spotted having dinner together at a popular Los Angeles restaurant called Crossroads Kitchen.
The American singer shared a kiss with Rutherford after another recent dinner at Studio City La Mirch restaurant.
With her arms draped over her shoulders, Eilish was seen sharing an intimate moment with the singer as they walked down the street.
On December 18, 2017, a Jesse Rutherford fan account tweeted photos of Billie and Jesse posing together at a costume party.
The tweet, which resurfaced via TMZ, was originally posted on Billie’s 16th birthday, when Jesse was 26.
In October, the couple were slammed online for their “disturbing” baby and old man Halloween costumes.
Seemingly taking aim at critics of their middle-aged romance, the singer dressed up as a baby, complete with a diaper and a bonnet, while Rutherford sported a bald cap and crinkly prosthetics in photos posted by Pop Crave.
In a snap, which was posted by Billie’s brother’s partner Finneas, Ashe, the No Time To Die hitmaker wore doll makeup, a blonde wig and a teddy-adorned outfit.
The couple haven’t posted about their costumes on social media, but the ensembles have been called “sick and twisted” by fans. The 11-year age difference between the couple, especially since he may have known her since she was a minor, has recently caused backlash on social media.
In November 2022, the Bad Guy hitmaker raved about Rutherford’s ‘lockdown’ as she opened up about their relationship for the first time.
The Happier Than Ever singer described her joy at dating Jesse, who she called “the hottest f**king f**ker around,” in an interview with Vanity Fair.
“I’m really inspired by this person and, you know, he’s inspired by me,” she told the publication. “It’s really cool, and I’m really excited and I’m really happy about it.”
“I managed to work my way to a point in my life where not only was I known to someone who I thought was the sexiest f**king f**ker in the world, but I shot his ass! Are you kidding me? Can we just (get) a round of applause for me?
“I shot his ass!” All me! I did this shit! I locked up this enf**ker!
Eilish also addressed the scrutiny of her relationship.
‘Say what you gotta say, but, like, I’m in control right now. I did,” she told the publication.
Eilish also revealed that her love language is physical touch as she detailed the attributes she needs in a relationship.
“I just need to touch the skin, all the time. Touching, cuddling and hugging, everything about the skin is really important to me. And apart from that, just freedom. You know, I don’t want to be controlled. I want to be trusted and I want to be able to have space and I want love and attention and equal admiration is really important.
Eilish, who was previously in a relationship with Matthew Tyler Vorce in 2021, said she was “tremendously grateful” for the romance she had with Vorce.
“I’m extremely grateful for the relationship I was in last year and I think he’s so much happier now, which makes me really happy,” she said.
