Billie Eilish and The Neighbourhood frontman Jesse Rutherford have confirmed they're no longer together.

A representative for Eilish told Page Six that the couple called it quits after less than a year of dating. “We can confirm Billie and Jesse did split amicably and remain good friends,” said the rep. The couple went public with their relationship in November 2022 following sightings together the previous month, but they haven't been spotted together since attending Coachella in April.

Earlier this month, Eilish attended the Met Gala without Rutherford. She was seen hanging out with Love, Victor actor Ava Capri at an afterparty that same night, sparking speculation on the status of her relationship with Rutherford. The representative added that any cheating allegations are "false," and both Eilish and Rutherford are currently single.

Last year, Eilish showered Rutherford with praise in an interview with Vanity Fair. “I just am really inspired by this person, and, you know, he’s inspired by me,” Eilish said. “It’s really cool, and I’m really excited and I’m really happy about it. ... 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?"

Their relationship didn't come without controversy, however, as some were critical of their 11-year age gap. When they first started dating, Eilish was 20 and Rutherford 31. They poked fun at the age difference discourse with their Halloween costumes last year. Eilish dressed as a baby, while Rutherford wore a bald cap with grey hair.

Eilish's brother Finneas had no issue with the age gap and said his sister is an adult who is "perfectly entitled to make her own life decisions."
