Billie Eilish, 20, and new boyfriend Jesse Rutherford, 31, have been criticized for their ‘disturbing’ Halloween costumes for baby and old man.
Seemingly targeting critics of their age-gap romance, the singer dressed a baby, complete with a diaper and hat, while Rutherford wore a bald cap and wrinkled prosthetics in photos posted by Pop Crave.
In the snap, which was posted by Ashe, the partner of Billie’s brother Finneas, the hitmaker No Time To Die wore doll-like makeup, a blonde wig and an outfit adorned with stuffed animals as she chatted with her beau in the street.

The pair have not posted about their costumes on social media, but the ensembles were labeled “sick and twisted” by fans. The couple’s 11-year age difference, especially as he may have known her since she was a minor, has recently sparked backlash on social media.
One fan wrote: ‘Billie Eilish and Jessie Rutherford’s matching Halloween costumes are incredibly sick and twisted – especially with their age difference and power imbalance.
“It’s not funny or chic, it’s not a joke, it’s disturbing, and the adults in her life are failing her again.
Another wrote, “That Billie Eilish costume is extremely disturbing and I hate it every time it crosses my timeline,” while a third typed, “I wish I could wash my eyes with soap and scrub this off my head.” ‘

Another wrote: ‘I mean they troll the people who have an unnecessary opinion about their relationship. So in a way you prove their point and make their joke even funnier.’
Eilish was first associated with Jesse when the two were spotted by a fan at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights earlier this month.
The creator uploaded a clip of the two walking close together on TikTok and added a caption to the post: “OMG, I just saw Billie Eilish on Horror Nights.”
On the short roll, the stars seemed to hold hands as The Neighborhood bandmate led the singer out of a haunted maze.
Although Jesse’s face was not featured in the video, additional social media posts showed him being in the park with not only Billie, but her older brother, Finneas.
In the snap, Jesse was wearing a leather jacket similar to the one in the now viral TikTok video.
The Grammy winner also uploaded a post of herself posing in a bathroom, also taken at the crowded theme park.
Rumors quickly seeped through the internet, and the two were spotted dining together less than two weeks ago at a popular LA restaurant called Crossroads Kitchen.
The American singer shared a kiss with Rutherford after another recent dinner date at Studio City restaurant La Mirch.
With her arms draped over his shoulders, Eilish was seen sharing an intimate moment with the singer as they walked down the street.
On December 18, 2017 a Jesse Rutherford fan account tweeted photos of Billie and Jesse playfully posing together at a costume party.
The tweet, which surfaced via TMZwas originally posted on Billie’s 16th birthday when Jesse was 26 years old.

Billie, who has a reputation for diligently shutting up about her love life, hasn’t publicly expressed the latest suspicions, and neither has Jesse.
A few years ago, Billie remarked: Capital breakfast with Roman Kemp that she ‘certainly’ prefers to keep her relationships ‘private’.’
She shared: ‘I’ve had relationships and kept them private, and even the ones I’ve had; I regret the small amount I showed the world.’
The No Time To Die singer explained, “I think about the people who have made their relationships public, and then they break up, and it’s like, ‘What if it goes bad?'”
Meanwhile, Jesse, who is best known for fronting The Neighborhood, was previously in a relationship with a model named Devon Lee Carson.
They became an item in 2015, but in November last year, reports started circulating that they had pulled down the curtain on their romance.
Speculation: Earlier this month, a fan posted a video to social media of two people, who appeared to be Billie and Jesse, who appeared to be holding hands at Universal Studios Hollywood
