It was so easy to be a fan of Billie Eilish before everything that’s recently gone down with her personal drama. The problems of Billie Eilish’s boyfriend, Matthew Tyler Vorce, are surely getting in the way at this time. When the two started dating, fans were quick to poke into his past to find out more about him and get an understanding of if he’s really a good guy or not.
Some of what’s been discovered about divorce isn’t good news at all. Nineteen-year-old Eilish caused eyebrows to raise when she decided to link up with twenty-nine-year-old Vorce but their age gap isn’t necessarily the biggest issue at hand here. Former social media posts from him have resurfaced and things aren’t looking too great based on what he used to talk about online.
Vorce’s unfortunate history
Billie Eilish’s boyfriend, Matthew Tyler Vorce, posted a few offensive & racially messed up things on social media in the past and now that these particular messages have come to light, he’s taking it upon himself to apologize.
He stated, “I want to apologize for the things that I wrote on social media in the past. The language I used was hurtful and irresponsible and I understand how offensive those words are. Whether it was a lyric, a quote or just me being dumb, it does not matter. I am ashamed and deeply sorry that I used them in any context. It is not how I was raised and it is not what I stand for.”
Billie Eilish’s boyfriend went on to say, “I shouldn’t have used this language in the first place and I won’t use it again. I am so sorry for the hurt I have caused. I take full responsibility and continue to hold myself accountable for my actions.” Is his apology enough or are Billie Eilish’s fans too upset to forgive?
Billie Eilish’s personal drama
Aside from the drama ensuing with Billie Eilish’s boyfriend, she’s got her own separate issues going on too. Her fans are pretty disappointed in her because they feel that she’s partaking in something called queer-baiting. A better explanation of this is when someone uses the LGBTQ community for their own benefit in order to promote their own self interests.
The LGBTQ community is confused about why she has chosen to go down the route of queer-baiting and they’ve directly accused her of it. One upset Instagram user posted, “Bestie idk if you’re queerbaiting or not but I’m really hoping you aren’t because it’s really rude.” Another user on Twitter commented, “Queerbaiting is bad enough . . . but during pride month!? I’m sorry but no.” Eilish’s fans aren’t happy.
Billie Eilish’s response
Billie Eilish has been acting quite nonchalant about everything going on in her personal life. She’s posted a few clapbacks on TikTok showcasing the fact that she really doesn’t care about people’s opinions.
Billie Eilish’s boyfriend is reportedly an incredibly private guy so the fact that he’s been shoved into the spotlight so abruptly is likely something that he is trying his best to adjust to. Regardless of everything going on, it doesn’t look like Eilish is planning to end her relationship with Vorce anytime soon.
Billie Eilish’s career
Aside from everything going on with Billie Eilish’s boyfriend, she seems to be doing quite alright. According to People, she’s feeling much more confident these days. She said, “I wanted to make a very timeless record that wasn’t just timeless in terms of what other people thought, but really just timeless for myself. I gathered a lot of inspiration from a lot of older artists that I grew up loving.”
