Fans of Billie Eilish do not seem very pleased with her new love interest. The singer who made her breakthrough with her James Bond song No Time To Die has managed to attract fans of all ages, thanks to her being a teen while also working on big projects. The 20-year-old won a total of several Grammy awards this year and became the youngest person to become the Glastonbury headliner.

Meanwhile, when it comes to dating, the industry has seen vast age differences between couples. But fans of Billie Eilish are unsure which category the singer’s situation falls in. Reactions flow in as the artist is seen kissing her much older love interest.
