With her dark black hair, love of eyeliner and monochromatic wardrobe, it’s no surprise Billie Eilish is a fan of Halloween. Over the weekend, the singer was spotted enjoying the spooky season by visiting Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights, where she happened to also be captured hand-in-hand with who we can only assume is her new boyfriend, The Neighbourhood singer Jesse Rutherford.
In a TikTok posted by a fan, captioned simply, “OMG I just saw Billie Eilish at Horror Nights,” the pair are seen leaving a haunted maze on Friday night with Rutherford walking ahead. Eilish then reaches out and grabs his hand.
Although Rutherford’s face isn’t visible in the clip, he was seen wearing the same leather jacket in an Instagram Story shared by Eilish’s older brother, Finneas, not long after.
Two days later, Twitter account Pop Crave shared another photo of the rumoured couple, this time eating a meal together at the vegan West Hollywood restaurant, Crossroads Kitchen. A diner who was also at the restaurant told ET the pair kissed “on the lips” and then went into far too much detail about everything from what they ate (pasta) to where they were going later that night (maybe a party at the Kardashians).
They also noted that “Billie looked very good.” They added, “they seemed comfortable and happy together.”

Naturally, the internet went into meltdown mode about the potential new couple who appear to have been friends for years: there are photos of them together at a Halloween party in 2017. Some appear up in arms about their age gap – Eilish is 20, while Rutherford is 31 – but this is Hollywood, the land of Leonardo DiCaprio, surely we have bigger fish to fry?
For her part, Eilish was last linked to rapper Brandon “Q” Adams and actor Matthew Tyler Vorce. Rutherford, meanwhile, dated model Devon Lee Carlson from 2015 until the pair quietly broke up earlier this year.
