Billie Eilish has split up with Jesse Rutherford.

The 21-year-old pop star struck up a relationship with Neighbourhood frontman Jesse, 31, in October 2022 but the pair have now "amicably" parted ways, a representative for Billie has confirmed.

The rep told People: "We can confirm Billie and Jesse did split amicably and remain good friends. All cheating rumours are false. Both are currently single."

Little is known surrounding the breakup and, while the former couple seemed to remain coy about discussing their relationship when we were together, Billie did admit just weeks after going Instagram official with Jesse that she was "really happy" about the union as she seemingly addressed fans who had expressed concern over their 11-year age gap.

She told Vanity Fair: "It's really cool and I'm really excited and I'm really happy about it.

"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****** f***** alive, but I pulled his a**.

"I just need to be touching skin all the time - touching and cuddling and hugging and anything skin-related is really a big thing for me. Maybe trust me? I'm in control. I'm in charge. I know what I'm doing. I'm okay."

Around the same time, Billie's elder brother Finneas - who has worked as a producer on her top-selling albums - insisted he just wanted her to be "happy" as he reminded fans that she can make her own decisions as an adult.

He said: "I want my sister to be happy and safe, and she is a 21-year-old adult perfectly entitled to make her own life decisions."
