It’s true, Billie Eilish has a new man in her life! The 20-year-old confirmed her relationship with Jesse Rutherford, 31, by making out with him in new photos. The two looked smitten with one another as they locked lips while out and about in Studio City. In another shot, Jesse wrapped an arm around Billie’s shoulder, and she held onto his hand as they walked down the street.

Billie looked blissfully happy as she packed on the PDA with her new man, which was followed by a low key date at Crossroads Kitchen. “You would never have known that Billie and Jesse were celebrities unless you knew who they were. They couldn’t have been more down to earth and they acted like any typical couple,” an eyewitness at the restaurant tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “They didn’t request any special accommodations as a lot of celebrities often have, they sat in a booth with all the other diners and pretty much kept to themselves the entire time,” the insider added, noting that the new couple “sat closely” to each other.

“They sat closely next to each other in the booth, and they definitely had eyes for each other because they didn’t pay much attention to anything else. Billie and Jesse both appeared very happy to be there,” the source explained, also observing that the pair seemed to have a strong connection when in conversation. “They would look each other in the eyes when speaking, and they were joking and laughing throughout the night. While they were waiting for their food, they casually chatted and Jesse hung on her every word. It was obvious they were close, and they appeared very comfortable with each other. They ordered appetizers, dinner, and shared a dessert but didn’t finish everything. It seemed like a typical date night,” they also told HL.

The two were first linked when they were seen holding hands in a video at Halloween Horror Nights on Oct. 15. One day prior to the spooky outing with friends, they were also seen on a dinner date together, according to TMZ. Back in August, Billie and Jesse were also seen at the same movie premiere, although there was no dating speculation at the time.

Before getting together with Jesse, Billie was in a relationship with Matthew Tyler Vorce for about a year. The two split in May. Although it was rumored that the actor had cheated on Billie, he shut down the speculation on Instagram after the breakup. “Nobody cheated on anybody,” he wrote. “Relationships end. Simple as that. Creating rumors and LYING on the Internet is dangerous.”

Before Matthew, Billie was in a relationship with rapper 7:AMP. The pair’s relationship was kept under wraps until Billie released her documentary in Feb. 2021. She referred to him a “Q” in the footage. Although the documentary didn’t delve too deep into the relationship, Billie did tell Q that she loved him in the movie.

For the most part, Billie has not spoken publicly about many of her relationships. “I definitely want to keep [my love life] private,” Billie told Capital Breakfast in 2020. “I’ve had relationships and kept them private; and even the ones I’ve had, with the tiny amount I let the world see, I regret. I think about people who have made their relationships public, and they break up and it’s like, ‘What if it goes bad?'”
