Fans Call Out Billie Eilish’s Ex-Boyfriend For Abusive Behavior
Although the documentary contains some cute moments, such as her mother Maggie teaching her how to write songs and her father Tom teaching her how to play the piano and ukulele, Eilish’s documentary does take a dark turn.
The “When The Party’s Over” singer revealed that she started struggling with depression and self-harm, and raised a lot of questions about her mysterious secret ex-boyfriend.
Even though Eilish has amazing vocal talent, she admits that “I didn’t think I would make it to this age.”
“I was, like, 14-15,” she shared. “I had razors hidden in places, and I had Band-Aids hidden in the little corner of my room. And I always had Band-Aids on my wrists. I was literally locking myself in the bathroom and making myself bleed ‘cause I thought I deserved it.”
Although the documentary features a few tender moments, as shown when he asks her to style her a hair a certain way for her Coachella performance, things hit a sour note when she forgets the lyrics to “All the Good Girls Go to Hell” on stage.
She calls her boyfriend, who is attending the festival with her, although it seems he won’t come out to comfort her as she requests. Instead, a frustrated Eilish asks, “What do you mean ‘try’?” before she ends the call and throws her phone on the floor.
Although the “Everything I Wanted” performer makes it clear that she’s not over her ex, she had to end the relationship.
“I just wasn’t happy,” she explains. “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 things that the other person couldn’t care less about. I don’t think that’s fair to you. I don’t think that’s fair to him. There was just a lack of effort. I was literally like, ‘Dude, you don’t have enough love to love yourself so you can’t love me, dude. And you don’t. You think you do.’”
Although the relationship is over, fans were concerned for the singer’s safety after Q breaks his hand hitting a wall and Eilish is heard explaining to a friend, “I’m trying to get him to go to therapy. He’s so self-destructive.”
“Billie having a boyfriend who ghosts her and gets invited to s–t for free and then doesn’t even try to spend time with her PISSES ME OFF IMAGINE DATING BILLIE EILISH AND NOT SPENDING EVERY SINGLE GODD–N SECOND WITH HER,” one fan tweeted.
“Good morning to everyone except Billie Eilish’s ex boyfriend,” another added alongside an obscene emoji.
Others were quick to point out the drastic age difference between the two, with one person summing up many fan’s reactions, writing, “Why is nobody talking about the fact that billie eilish was 15-16 and her boyfriend was 22. Literally a gcse age CHILD and someone whose at the age to be graduating from university.”
