It looks like Billie Eilish has a new boyfriend. News of a possible new man in the hitmaker’s life comes about five months after her relationship with actor Matthew Tyler Vorce ended after about a year of dating. Vorce confirmed their split via Instagram Stories after hitting back at claims the infidelity caused the end of their romance. “No one cheated on anyone. relationships end. It’s that simple. Creating rumors and LIES online is dangerous,” the “Mother May I Sleep With Danger” star wrote (via People). Eilish doesn’t seem to have spoken publicly about the split, although the breakup news came about a year after Page Six, after she shared candid photos of the two looking quite cozy while out and about together and walking their dog.
But it seems like Eilish has now moved on from that romance with another famous face, as she’s now sparked relationship rumors with none other than Jesse Rutherford that have sent the internet into a frenzy. But who is Rutherford, and what exactly is going on between him and the “Bad Guy” singer who everyone is speculating is the new element on the block?
Jesse Rutherford is the lead singer of a band
Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford are sitting in a tree. KISS? Well, that’s the latest rumor anyway. TMZ reported that the rumored couple were spotted holding hands while picking up their cargo at the Halloween Horror Nights in Los Angeles, and speculated the two may have been dating since at least August. Viewers shared footage of the pair together at the spooktacular event on TikTok, with some making it clear they weren’t too happy about their 10-year age difference (Rutherfood was born in 1991 and Eilish in 2001).
But who exactly is this guy, we hear you ask? Well, you may know Rutherford best as the lead singer of The Neighborhood, the alternative band behind the 2012 hit “Sweater Weather.” He’s also done some solo work, including songs like “Opposite.” Rutherford also has a few acting credits to his name, including his appearance in a 2002 episode of Star Trek: Enterprise as Q’Ell, according to IMDb. As for his previous romances, Rutherford previously dated singer Anabel Englund and even had “Annie” tattooed on his body for her before dating influencer Devon Carlson in 2019.
As for his apparent romance with Eilish, details are a little thin on the ground and neither has publicly confirmed their romance beyond their hand-holding session, although we know they’ve known each other for a while. In 2017, @jrutherfordpics shared snaps of the two approaching for a photo as they attended a party together.
