With their Halloween costumes, Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford chose to address the controversy in society about their 11-year age difference.
Rutherford wore a bald hat with grey hair, and Eilish dressed as a baby complete with diaper and bonnet.
There are issues with their relationship that go beyond just their age difference. Rutherford, according to TMZ, has known Eilish since she was 15 or 16. According to a source who spoke to Hollywood Life, her brother Finneas, who is said to have known The Neighbourhood singer for a long time, approves of their relationship.
“Jesse gets along flawlessly with [Billie’s] brother Finneas, who is so important to her,” the insider said. “Finneas approves of this, as he really loves seeing his sister so happy and giddy. Billie has gone through such amazing changes and growth in the past few years, and she is ready to be with a man who is on her same level. She says that Jesse is the perfect guy for her.”
Actor Matthew Tyler Vorce and Eilish allegedly split up in May, according to People. “Nobody cheated on anyone. Relationships end. Simple as that,” he wrote on his Instagram Stories. “Creating rumors and LYING on the internet is dangerous.” At the time of their breakup, Vorce was thirty years old.
