Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford have split up after dating for less than a year.
A representative for the young singer confirmed the sad news to Page Six and said: "Billie and Jesse did split amicably and remain good friends."
They went public as a couple in November last year after a few weeks of speculation they were seeing each other.
It seemed like everything was all rosy, with Eilish telling Vanity Fair: “I managed to get my way to a point in my life where I not only was known by a person that I thought was the hottest f**king f**ker alive, but pulled his a**.”
While a new romance should one that is celebrated, some people were quick to point out the age gap between the two.
Billie was just 20 years old and Jesse was 30 and many thought it was a fairly big difference.
Those nearest and dearest to Billie were regularly asked during interviews what they thought and pretty much all of them shut down any issue.
Her brother, Finneas, was called out by a user on on TikTok, who said: “Your sister’s dating a 31-year-old man and your music is s***ty.”
Ignoring the comments about his music, he replied: “I want my sister to be happy and safe.
“She is a 21-year-old adult perfectly entitled to make her own life decisions.”
His sentiments echo what he said back in November, when he was asked by E! News about their relationship and said: "Listen, as long as she's happy, I'm happy."
