Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford make crazy red carpet debut

It’s official, Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford are together! The pair of musicians made their red carpet debut last weekend at the 2022 Annual LACMA Art + Film Gala.

What grabbed everyone’s attention were the outfits Billie and Jesse chose to wear to the formal gala. Other attendees came to the event held by the Los Angeles-based art museum in high-glam wear, while the new couple went for the exact opposite.

Billie and Jesse attended the benefit in head-to-toe Gucci pajamas. They even wrapped themselves in a large blanket monogrammed with the fashion house’s logo. Jesse wore slippers, while Billie covered her blunt bangs with an eye mask.

The two snuggled up for photos inside the blanket before ditching it to reveal their full looks.

The Halloween controversy

Before making their red carpet debut, Billie Eilish, 20, and Jesse Rutherford, 31, went out and about on Halloween night donning costumes that sparked a controversy.

Billie and Jesse have an 11-year age gap. Jesse has known the singer since she was fifteen. This did not sit well with fans of either artist online.

Their Halloween costumes, in a way, respond to the online comments. Billie and Jesse dressed up as a baby and an old man, respectively.

The Neighbourhood’s frontman wore a bald cap with tufts of gray hair along with a matching mustache. While Eilish sported a bright pink bonnet and bib printed with teddy bears, along with baby doll-inspired makeup.

Some fans percieved the statement costumes as a joke or as the couple’s way to make light of the situation. Most of the fans were horrified by the couple’s costumes.

“Billie is grown enough to know how weird and creepy this is,” one wrote. “Idk if Jesse Rutherford realizes this, but dressing up in a costume that makes fun of his grooming accusations is exactly what a groomer would do,”

“Can’t believe Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford didn’t dress up for Halloween,” another joked.

The duo’s costumes were mainly described as “very weird” and “embarrasing.”

Where it all started

The couple sparked romance rumours earlier this month, when they were spotted holding hands at Halloween horror Nights in Los Angeles. Some days later, they were seen kissing during a dinner date.

The romantic relationship might be new, but they’ve known each other for years. A Rutherford fan account shared a picture of them from December 2017, when Billie was 16 and Jesse was 26.

Finneas responds to the relationship

Finneas, Billie Eilish’s brother, allegedly supports the relationship. A source close to the music producer revealed his stance to Hollywood Life. The source said that Finneas and Jesse go way back and he doesn’t mind his relationship with his sister.

“Jesse gets along flawlessly with [Billie’s] brother Finneas, who is so important to her,” said the insider. “Finneas approves of this, as he really loves seeing his sister so happy and giddy. Billie has gone through such amazing changes and growth in the past few years, and she is ready to be with a man who is on her same level. She says that Jesse is the perfect guy for her.”

The insider continued: “The chemistry between them is electrifying and everyone around them can see this. They are both passionate about their music and Jesse treats Billie with so much respect and admiration. He does not look at her as a superstar or anything like that.”
