On Saturday, November 5, 2022, Jesse Rutherford and Billie Eilish made their red carpet debut as a couple at the LACMA Film + Art 2022 Gala in California.
The couple arrived at the event cozily draped in a big Gucci blanket. They removed the covering for the photo shoot to show off their matching pajama-style attire. Since the two were seen kissing at a restaurant in Los Angeles last month, there have been reports that Billie and Jesse are dating.
Additionally, Billie made their romance on Instagram public on October 31 with a post in which they were dressed as Halloween characters. While the special day and year of their meeting are unknown, there are images of Billie and Jesse together that have been posted online by fan accounts since 2017.
When Did Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford Meet?
While many people on social media assert that Jesse Rutherford and Billie Eilish had been friends for a long time, the couple first raised dating rumors on October 13, 2022, when they were spotted out on a date at Crossroads Kitchen in Los Angeles.
On October 15, 2022, they were spotted together one more that. However, Finneas, Eilish’s older brother, was with them this time. The three were sighted during Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood.
According to TMZ, on October 19, 2022, the couple was also kissing on Studio City, Los Angeles streets. When images of 20-year-old Billie and 31-year-old Jesse first appeared online, the two were harshly criticized on social media, with many highlighting their significant age difference of 11 years.
The couple appeared together for a Halloween party dressed as a baby and an older man, and it seems from Eilish’s Halloween post that they were making fun of their detractors.
Rutherford wore a bald hat with side hair and wrinkled prosthetics, while Billie was clothed in a pink baby suit and diaper. Their Halloween costumes also received harsh criticism, with many internet users stating that it was “disturbing.”
