Adding to the approval from her parents, Eilish's older brother and record producer FINNEAS also approves of the blossoming romance, as per an article by AceShowBiz. As it turns out, Rutherford was friends with FINNEAS. "It helped a lot that Jesse was friends with Billie's brother FINNEAS too because he is the toughest critic and is so overprotective of her," revealed the insider. Earlier, another source had told the outlet that he was fully supportive of his little sister's relationship and was ecstatic to see her "so happy and giddy."

The source also reveals that the couple found the idea behind their Halloween looks to be "hilarious and so perfect." Friends of the couple also "thought it was very in line with their sarcastic sense of humor. They know what people are saying about their age difference and they really don't care at all." The source added, "Eleven years is really nothing and they are on the same plane emotionally and spiritually. Billie is an old soul and she's way beyond her years. Jesse treats her with the same love and respect that he always has. The important thing is that he treats her how she deserves to be treated, regardless of age."
