Billie Eilish confirmed her new romance with musician Jesse Rutherford during a very public display of affection in Los Angeles on Tuesday evening, following more than a week of furious speculation regarding her love life.
The American singer shared a kiss with Rutherford following a dinner date at Studio City restaurant La Mirch, from where she had posted a series of photos capturing the couple as they enjoyed an Indian meal.
With her arms draped across his shoulders, Elish, 20, was seen sharing an intimate moment with the 31-year old singer – who performs with rock band The Neighbourhood – as they made their way onto the street.
Billie looked happier than ever as the new couple walked with their arms around each other and stopped to kiss in the street on several occasions while making their way to a car, an understated VW Beatle.
The star was rocking her typical edgy style as she sported an oversized denim jacket with a pair of baggy shorts and plaid Converse trainers.
Billie couldn’t wipe the smile off her face during their romantic evening out together as they laughed and joked together while enjoying their meal at the Indian restaurant.
Jesse was also dressed down in a navy and white striped long-sleeved top which he wore with a pair of grey trousers and white plimsoles.
This was the couple’s second date night in two days, after the duo cozied up to one another in a red leather booth while tucking into pasta on Tuesday.
Billie set off romance rumors with the alt rock singer last week when they were seen apparently holding hands at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights.
The venue for their first dinner date was Crossroads Kitchen, the vegan restaurant whose investors include Kourtney Kardashian’s husband Travis Barker.
While Jesse modeled an elegant black and off-white blazer, Billie glammed up in an ornately embroidered nude top and drop earrings.
Rumors that they are an item have been circulating since last Friday, when a fan posted a social media video of two people who appeared to be Billie and Jesse seeming to holding hands.
Adding grist to the mill, Jesse appeared in an Insta Stories snap from a men’s room at Universal Studios posted by Billie’s brother and co-writer Finneas, 25.
In his own Insta Stories selfie with Finneas, Jesse was wearing a black leather jacket similar to the one worn in the fan-posted social media video.
Billie has posted her own bathroom selfie from Universal Studios, wearing an outfit that also appears to match the fan video.
They were evidently at the amusement park for Halloween Horror Nights, which is where the fan claims to have caught sight of them.
The fan uploaded a clip of the two people who looked like they might be Billie and Jesse walking through the park together possibly hand in hand.
‘OMG I just saw Billie Eilish at Horror Nights,’ the fan exclaimed in text over the video, which has resulted in a storm of speculation that Billie and Jesse are an item.
Social media is simmering with backlash against Billie and Jesse’s 11-year age difference, especially as he may have known her since she was a minor.
On December 18, 2017 a Jesse Rutherford fan account tweeted pictures of Billie and Jesse playfully posing up at a costume party together.
The tweet, which has resurfaced via TMZ, was originally posted on Billie’s 16th birthday when Jesse was 26 years old.
Billie, who has a reputation for being assiduously tight-lipped about her love life, has not addressed the latest conjecture in public and neither has Jesse.
A couple of years ago Billie remarked on Capital Breakfast With Roman Kemp that she ‘definitely’ prefers to ‘keep’ her relationships ‘private.’
She dished: ‘I’ve had relationships and kept them private, and even the ones that I’ve had; with the tiny amount that I’ve let the world see, I regret.’
The No Time To Die singer explained: ‘I think about the people that have made their relationships public, and then they break up, and it’s like: “What if it goes bad?”‘
Meanwhile Jesse, who is best known as the frontman for The Neighbourhood, previously dated a model called Devon Lee Carson.
They became an item in 2015 but by November of last year reports had begun to allege that they had brought the curtain down on their romance.
