Billie Eilish Jokes She's 'Never Dating Again,' Gives Update on Relationship With Ex Jesse Rutherford

Billie Eilish shared what it'll take for her to get back into the dating scene while offering where she and ex Jesse Rutherford stand.

Billie Eilish is not up for dating -- at least not right now.

The "Ocean Eyes" singer joked as much in a recent Rolling Stone interview. The excerpt didn't make the magazine's May cover story -- the third of her career -- but the outlet has since published her dating quotes on its website. Under the subhead, "She currently has no interest in dating," the 22-year-old Oscar winner expanded on the subject.

"I plan on never dating again," she joked. "That's not true, obviously. But no, I don't see myself being serious with anyone until I find someone that really feels right to me, and that is not interesting to me right now."

Under that same subhead, Eilish confirmed she's on "good terms" with her ex, Jesse Rutherford.

"That's my guy, truly one of my favorite people in the world," she said.

As ET confirmed in spring 2023, Eilish and Rutherford split after less than a year of dating.

"We can confirm Billie and Jesse did split amicably and remain good friends," their reps told ET in a statement at the time. "All cheating rumors are false. Both are currently single."

Eilish and Rutherford first sparked dating rumors in October 2022. Following their split -- though they remain super friendly -- Eilish attended Rutherford's &ONE album listening party in August, where she sang and danced along to his song, "Turn Heel." 

In a video shared on social media, Eilish and Rutherford were seen rocking out together in a bowling alley and playing right to the camera as the pop star got a name-check with the line: "I just got a text from Billie." 

That playful moment came after Eilish publicly addressed the split on her Instagram Story, where one fan asked her about her relationship with The Neighbourhood frontman.

Eilish answered, "Very very good friends only. My homie forever."

Since the split, Eilish has opened up about her sexuality, which she underscored in her new, racy song, "Lunch," about her crushing on a girl. The track is off her third album, Hit Me Hard and Soft.

"That song was actually part of what helped me become who I am, to be real," Eilish told Rolling Stone. "I wrote some of it before even doing anything with a girl, and then wrote the rest after." 

The singer, who has not officially put a label on her sexuality, added, "I've been in love with girls for my whole life, but I just didn't understand -- until, last year, I realized I wanted my face in a vagina. I was never planning on talking about my sexuality ever, in a million years. It's really frustrating to me that it came up."

It came up during a red carpet interview with Variety, which discussed her attraction to women. Eilish later reacted to the interview on Instagram. 

"Thanks Variety for my award and also outing me on a red carpet at 11 a.m. instead of talking about anything else that matters," she wrote. "I like boys and girls leave me alone about it please literally who cares."
