If you want to be a tough guy or worse, the BAD GUY… know there will be hell to pay from Billie Eilish’s older brother, Finneas O’Connell.
Billie shot to stardom seemingly overnight and her older brother, Finneas, was with her every step of the way!
So, it’s no wonder he will defend his little sister and protect her at all costs.
Earlier this week, a Twitter account by the name of “Billie Eilish Updates” published a false narrative about the 19-year-old.
Finneas, who is 23, caught wind of the article which claimed, “in a new interview, Billie, 19, stated that she cried when she got rich and ‘wanted to be poor so I can relate to most of my fans.'”

Come to find out the article was photoshopped and it doesn’t exist.
It’s also worth mentioning the Twitter account publishing these narratives about Billie claimed to be a parody account; however, their new Twitter profile bio reads, “— The latest updates on 5x GRAMMY Award winner Billie Eilish. (fan account, all content used as fair use).”
A fan responded to the article tweeting, “@finneas 5k quotes again can you do something right for once and get this account suspended thank u.”
He clapped back at the user writing, “Fake obviously. Honestly I just wish they’d label this account satire like the onion or something. I have no problem with a joke as long as people know it’s a joke.”

In addition, Finneas called out another Twitter account by the name of “BilliesUpdatesss” for posting relentless lies.
“The account BilliesUpdatess is posting relentless lies about billie so if you see that account, report and block Em,” he tweeted.
As of Wednesday, July 28, the Twitter account no longer exists.
Billie has not commented on the fake accounts and false lies; however, it may be because she no longer looks at comments that she is tagged in nor does she seek out comments.
This isn’t the first time Finneas has fiercely defended his younger sis.
During an interview with The Sunday Times in March, Finneas got candid about trust in the industry and protecting Billie.
“We have a team we really trust and our parents around. But I always think of it, because of the amount of people we meet. I’m always trying to help facilitate the safest environment for her [Billie],” he told the publication.
He also spoke about chaperoning Billie throughout the early years of her career when she was a young teenager.
“She’s 19 now, but over the past couple of years, she was very young. And so I’ve wanted to be as protective as I can. I never wasn’t in a room with her when we wrote with other people in the first couple of years,” he said. “Part of that was the feeling: ‘I want to keep this kid safe.’ Not to be overbearing, but just a witness. Make sure that nobody is being a creep.”
