Just How Bad Was Jesse Rutherford’s Breakup With Devon Lee Carlson Before Dating Billie Eilish?

Prior to his publicized relationship with Billie Eilish, The Neighborhood’s Jesse Rutherford had a serious romance with Devon Lee Carlson.
Although many young singers put their heart and souls into their work, Billie Eilish has an enviable talent for teen angst songs that people truly connect to. The music that she writes with her brother Finneas O’Connell is emotional and even sometimes totally devastating.

Since Billie Eilish is 21 years old and her boyfriend Jesse Rutherford is 31, fans have been a bit concerned about that age gap. It doesn’t seem to bug them at all, though.

Carlson explained to GQ in an interview, “We love clothes so much, it totally makes sense that we met at the mall.”
It sounds like it was tough as they had been together for seven years. And while they did go their separate ways in 2015 for a little while, they were able to work things out.

According to V Magazine, Rutherford and Carlson knew each other when they were teenagers. They began talking on social media and he was older than her. He was in grade twelve and she was only in grade nine at the time.

Carlson said, “Obviously I was in a relationship for a very long time, a public relationship and we had the most mutual breakup ever and we still are totally chill and friends, and supportive of each other and whatever. But then I was like ‘Holy f*ck I’m single!’ for the first time in my entire life,” according to a post from PopBuzz’s Instagram account.
Whenever Devon Lee Carlson talked about her relationship with Jesse Rutherford, it sounded like they had a peaceful and happy time together. She told Allure in 2020, “I’ve always given my boyfriend sh*t because he has a SpongeBob tattoo,” Carlson says. “He is the biggest SpongeBob fan on the planet. I would bring up episodes and he’s like, ‘I don’t think I’ve seen that one.’ And I’m like, He didn’t know who DoodleBob was. And I was just like, ‘What? You have a SpongeBob tattoo. How could you not?’”
Dazed Digital called Carlson and Rutherford “the internet’s favorite couple.” Fans found them very stylish and loved seeing what outfits they were wearing.

In 2020, Rutherford spoke to Interview Magazine about coming up with Chip Chrome, a kind of alternate persona for himself. He mentioned that people wanted to talk to him about Carlson but that he liked to talk about his music.
Rutherford said, “I’m trying to figure out myself in all of this. Maybe I’m expected to have already done that, but I haven’t. I feel like I turned into a ‘thing’ on the Internet. When you work on a piece of music for a long time, you post it, and it gets X amount of likes, then you post a picture with your girlfriend and it gets X amount… It’s just a weird, challenging, confusing feeling. I feel like there’s an opportunity to get off the platform, or at least try it this way.
