Billie Eilish speaks out about new boyfriend for first time after receiving backlash for age-gap

The Happier Than Ever singer is super happy with Nick Rutherford and doesn't seem to care about what people think.

Billie Eilish has opened up about her new boyfriend.

The Happier Than Ever singer recently went public with her beau Jesse Rutherford.

When they made their relationship known, many people pointed out how Billie is 20 years old and Jesse is 31.

One person on Twitter said: "Jesse Rutherford was alive during Heorge h w Bush's presidency. Billie Eilish cannot legally drink [sic]."

Another added: "Billie Eilish cannot legally drink and Jesse has known her since she was 15. Gotta love Hollyweird! [sic]"

But it appears Eilish doesn't give one iota to the conversation and is actually pretty chuffed with bagging the Neighbourhood singer.

Her sixth interview with Vanity Fair, which charts how the punk-pop star is progressing in her career, showed that she said she didn't have a boyfriend for four years.

Last year was the first where she revealed she was dating someone.

In this year's Vanity Fair update, the 20-year-old explained she's no longer seeing that person but is happy knowing he is in a much better place now that they're not together.

Which brings us to her relationship with Jesse Rutherford.

When asked if she has a boyfriend in 2022, Billie erupted with a huge smile and admitted it's really cool to be dating someone again.

“I’m really happy about it," she said.

"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**.

"Round of applause for me...all me...I did that s**t. I locked that motherf**ker down.”

She explained how her love language is based on physical touch and she doesn't like to feel controlled when she's in a relationship.

Billie genuinely looks so happy so who cares what age they are.

As long as they're consenting adults, who is anyone to judge.

The two also looked like turned the age gap conversation into a joke on Halloween.

They attended the Halloween Horror Nights party dressed as an old man and a baby.

Pictures of them started circulating on social media featuring Billie in a pink baby costume, complete with over the top makeup and bunny slippers, and Jesse dressed up as an elderly bloke.

He'd even added to the look with heavy wrinkled makeup and a bald cap.

At least they owned the narrative and made a joke about it.
