It is unknown how Billie Eilish and Brandon Quention met, but they first started dating in late 2018. Billie appeared on Brandon’s album cover “Bleupro”. They became a couple when Billie Eilish was 17 years old and Brandon was 22 years old and their 5-year age gap caused a lot of negative reactions online. However, things fell apart between them in less than a year of dating. Despite their breakup, Billie still always defended Brandon whenever her fans attack him.
In an interview with Keeping Afloat Podcast in 2021, Billie Eilish opened up about her struggle with dating Brandon, saying:
And there was just a lack of effort I think. I was like, Dude, you don’t even have enough love to love yourself, you can’t love me.
After fans heard Billie Eilish’s statement, they began bombarding Brandon with negative comments on his social media accounts. In Billie’s 2021 Apple TV documentary titled “Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry”, she spoke up again about her separation from Brandon.
I just wasn’t happy. And I didn’t want the same things he wanted, and I don’t think that’s fair for him. I don’t think you should be in a relationship, super excited about certain things that the other person couldn’t care less about.
After the documentary aired, many of Billie’s fans flooded to Brandon’s page again to leave him hateful messages, attacking him for how poorly he allegedly treated Billie. For this reason, Brandon turned off the comment section on all his social media accounts, including Instagram and YouTube.
