Ever since she rose to fame, Billie Eilish‘s love life has been quite the mystery. Yep, the singer has kept her relationships under wraps from the public, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating. So who has the “Bad Guy” singer dated? Was she linked to any big stars? And what went down in her relationships? Not to worry, you guys, because we broke down her love life from start to finish for you. Here’s everything you need to know…
Billie Eilish Has Had A Secret Relationship
Despite not publicly being linked to anyone, Eilish confirmed back in September 2020 that she had a few relationships that no one knew about.
“I definitely want to keep [relationships] private. I’ve had relationships and kept them private, and even the ones that I’ve had, with the tiny amount that I’ve let the world see, I regret,” she explained while speaking to Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp. “I think about the people that have made their relationships OD public, and then they break up, and it’s like, ‘What if it goes bad?’ Then everyone has this whole opinion on your relationship that they have no idea about. It’s not something I’m interested in.”
She also previously explained to GQ Magazine that she didn’t feel “desired” by her past boyfriends, which led to her having body image issues.
“I have never felt desired. My past boyfriends never made me feel desired. None of them,” the 18-year-old revealed. “And it’s a big thing in my life that I feel I have never been physically desired by somebody. So I dress the way I dress as I don’t like to think of you guys — I mean anyone, everyone — judging [my body], or the size of it.”
Plus, while chatting to Dutch music station 3voor12 in 2019, Elish said that she was previously “in love,” but isn’t any more.
Her First Kiss Was With A Guy Named Henry Whitford
During one of her concerts, Eilish recalled her first kiss ever, and she actually called the guy out by name! It turns out, the first time she locked lips was with a normal guy named Henry Whitford, and it didn’t go well. According to the star, it happened in 2017, on the day before Valentine’s Day. She and Whitford went on a date to the movies, and afterwards they went on the roof of a parking lot to go look at the stars, where they kissed.
“Right after we kissed, he says, ‘Wow that was really not as magical at all as I thought it was going to be,'” she explained. Ouch.
Billie Eilish’s Celebrity Crush Is Justin Bieber
The musician has not kept it a secret that her celebrity crush is Justin Bieber, and her mom actually revealed that her love for him was so intense she considered sending Eilish to therapy! Yep, while chatting with her on the “Me & Dad Radio” podcast, Maggie May Baird explained that her daughter “sobbed” so much over Bieber’s 2012 song “As Long As You Love Me” premiering that she considered getting her help.
“I remember this one really well and the video, and Billie talking about it, and being excited it was coming out, and just crying and crying,” she revealed. “Everyone knows the whole Billie, Justin Bieber thing but this song was a big part of it. I just want to say, we did consider taking you to therapy because you were in so much pain over Justin Bieber.”
Eilish chimed in, adding, “I would watch the music video for this song and just sob.”
She’s Focusing On Herself At The Moment
In 2019, Eilish admitted that although she really “wanted a boyfriend,” she wasn’t attracted to anyone anymore and that she was focusing on herself instead.
“All I ever wanted was a boyfriend. Any time when it was rainy or cloudy, all I would wish is I was with some boy. That was my thing,” she shared with GQ. “It’s been months and I am not attracted to people anymore. I don’t know what’s going on… It’s actually kind of dope.”
She also sang about loving herself in her recent single, “My Future.”
“‘Cause I, I’m in love / With my future / Can’t wait to meet her / And I (I), I’m in love / But not with anybody else / Just wanna get to know myself,” the lyrics read. “I know supposedly I’m lonely now (Lonely now) / Know I’m supposed to be unhappy / Without someone (Someone) / But aren’t I someone? (Aren’t I someone? Yeah) / I’d (I’d) like to be your answer (Be your answer) / ‘Cause you’re so handsome (You’re so handsome) / But I know better / Than to drive you home / ‘Cause you’d invite me in / And I’d be yours again.”
