Billie Eilish was spotted holding hands with The Neighbourhood singer Jesse Rutherford – and fans are divided over the possible new romance.
A fan posted a TikTok video of the pair leaving a haunted maze at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Los Angeles on Friday that showed Eilish, 20, reaching to grab 31-year-old Rutherford’s hand on their way out, New York Post reports.
“OMG I just saw Billie Eilish at Horror Nights,” the fan captioned the post.
Although Rutherford’s face was not visible in the clip, he appeared to be wearing the same leather jacket in an Instagram Story shared by Eilish’s brother, Finneas, not long after.
Two days later, Twitter account Pop Crave shared a photo of the rumoured couple eating a meal together at a restaurant.
Eilish and Rutherford were wearing different outfits than their theme park date, signalling that they have gone out together more than once.
Reps for Eilish did not immediately return a request for comment.
After the video and photo surfaced online, fans started debating on social media whether the pair’s age gap is inappropriate.
“Yes they are adults but 20 and 31 are not NEARLY in the same maturity range … like a 20-year-old is college aged and a 31-year-old is a fully grown a** adult,” one Twitter user argued.
Another person jumped into the comments section of the TikTok video to write, “I love Jesse but it don’t sit right with me how she’s not even able to legally drink and he’s 31. No, no, no.”
A third person simply commented, “The age difference is killing me.”
Social media users also resurfaced a photo shared by a Rutherford fan account in December 2017 that showed the pair playfully posing at a costume party to point out that they have known each other for years.
At the time, Eilish was 15 while Rutherford was 26.
The Happier Than Ever singer has been tight-lipped about her love life over the years.
She was previously linked to rapper Brandon “Q” Adams and actor Matthew Tyler Vorce.
Rutherford, for his part, dated model Devon Lee Carlson from 2015 to 2021.
