Billie Eilish is reportedly dating The Neighbourhood’s Jesse Rutherford, much to the chagrin of her legion of “avocados” followers. Why? Their 11-year age difference, plus the fact that they’ve known each other since Eilish was a teenager, is sufficient evidence to conclude that Rutherford is a Bad GuyTM.
This Monday, the Grammy-winning artist, age 20, was seen kissing Rutherford, age 31, outside a Studio City restaurant before exiting in Rutherford’s Volkswagen Beetle. Page Six reports that this was not even the couple’s first date. Last Friday, Eilish and Rutherford were photographed holding hands at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios. I find it troubling that Rutherford whips a Volkswagen Beetle, but online Eilish fans are outraged over something else.
“Jesse Rutherford was alive during the presidency of George H. W. Bush.” “Billie Eilish cannot drink legally,” an admirer tweeted. “Seeing Jesse Rutherford and Billie Eilish holding hands is literally the worst thing that has ever happened to me. The universe is literally against me, it’s so bad,” commented another.
According to numerous lifelong followers, Rutherford has known Eilish since she was a teenager. Yes, there are photographs of the pair from at least 2017 available. That’s Hollywood, everybody!
On the other side of the Internet, a different fandom continues to be intrigued by the “will-they-won’t-they” of the wizarding world, namely the romance between Emma Watson and Tom Felton.
The nature of their connection has long been the subject of speculation, but Felton’s new memoir, Beyond the Wand: The Magic and Mayhem of Growing Up a Wizard, has sparked a new round. He admits to harboring a “hidden love” for Watson and states that there have been “sparks” between them at various points over the years.
Felton wrote, “I’ve always had a secret affection for Emma, though probably not in the way that people would like to hear.” “This is not to suggest that we’ve never shared a spark. There certainly has been, but at various times.” Watson, who wrote the memoir’s prologue, reciprocated the devotion by referring to Felton as her “soulmate.”
We have always had one other’s backs as soulmates. I am confident that we will,” wrote Watson. It affects me emotionally to consider it. It gets better, Potterheads.
“We’ve specially loved each other for over 20 years, and I’ve lost count of how many times others have told me, ‘You must have drunkenly made out, just once!’ ‘You must have kissed!’ ‘There must be something!'” the actress and activist added. Devastatingly, Watson never confirms nor denies whether or not these two had ever had a bit too much Butterbeer and touched each other’s wands, but I assumed they had.
Felton, meantime, hasn’t done much to quiet the enthusiasm around their decades-long flirtation. He was generous enough to include some intimate images of the duo in the biography, and during a recent promotional event for the book, he chose to wear a pair of socks that he teased were from his fformerstara.r
