“I’m still scared of [women], but I think they’re pretty.”

The Grammy winner said with a laugh,

“I saw the article, and I was like, ‘Oh, I guess I came out today!’”

“I just don’t really believe in [coming out]. I’m just like, why can’t we just exist? I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I just didn’t talk about it.”

Confirming, Eilish said,

“I just don’t really believe in [coming out]. I’m just like, why can’t we just exist? I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I just didn’t talk about it.”

She told People magazine,

 “I didn’t want the same things he wanted and I don’t think that’s fair for him. I don’t think you should be in a relationship super excited about things that the other person couldn’t care less about.”

After that, Billie publicly dated Jesse Rutherford, who is the singer of the band called The Neighbourhood. The couple who had an age gap of 11 years started their romance in October 2022 and called it quits in May.

“We can confirm Billie and Jesse did split amicably and remain good friends,”
