Billie Eilish is “Really Happy About It” Her Relationship with Jesse Rutherford
This week, Billie Eilish came back for the magazine’s “Same Interview, The Sixth Year” time capsule interview.
The conversation was around Billie’s life, including her new 11-year-older beau Jesse Rutherford.
“I just am really inspired by this person, and, you know, he’s inspired by me,” Eilish explained. “It’s really cool, and I’m really excited and I’m really happy about it.”
“Say what you need to say, but, like, I am in control right now. I did this. I managed to get my life to a point where I not only was known by a person that I thought was the hottest fucking fucker alive, but pulled his ass. Are you kidding me? Can we just [get a] round of applause for me?” she further stated
Eilish, who turns 21 later this month, has spoken out about the age difference between her and Rutherford before.
The couple dressed up as Halloween characters to address the criticism in October. Rutherford wore a wig of white hair and a bald hat, while Eilish dressed as a baby with a bonnet and diaper.
Rutherford has reportedly known Eilish since she was 15 or 16 years old, as reported by TMZ. According to Hollywood Life, her brother Finneas is on board with her and the Neighbourhood singer’s relationship because he has known him for a long time.
According to the source, “Jesse gets along flawlessly with [Billie’s] brother Finneas, who is so important to her, 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.”
