Billie Eilish has a new romance with The Neighbourhood's lead singer Jesse Rutherford and while some fans find their age gap concerning, Billie is reportedly not worried about it. A source told Hollywood Life how the singer feels about the 11-year age gap.
"Billie and Jesse have known each other for years so even though they’ve only been dating a short while, she feels very comfortable with him,” the source said. “Billie knows fans may be concerned over their age difference, but it really isn’t a concern of hers because they connect on so many levels. Plus, she’s turning 21 in a few months so there won’t be as many restrictions in terms of where they can hang out because she’ll be old enough at that point.”
Her brother Finneas also approves of the relationship, according to the source. "Jesse gets along flawlessly with [Billie’s] brother Finneas, who is so important to her,” they continued. “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.”
“The chemistry between them is electrifying and everyone around them can see this,” the source said. “They are both passionate about their music and Jesse treats Billie with so much respect and admiration. He does not look at her as a superstar or anything like that.”
