Billie Eilish shares experience of being ghosted: “I couldn’t believe it”

Billie Eilish has spoken about her experience of being ghosted.

The singer-songwriter, who recently released her new album ‘Hit Me Hard And Soft’, revealed to Lily Allen and Miquita Oliver on their Miss Me podcast that the incident happened last December.

She said: “I was like, did you die? Did you literally die?,” adding it was “literally unbelievable. To this day, [he] never texted me again.”

Eilish continued: “It was somebody that I’d also known for years and had a plan, the day of, on the phone, making a plan, this is my address, be there at 3pm – never heard from him again. Ever. I couldn’t believe it.”

The singer-songwriter said that she later saw that he was dating someone else.

She continued: “And I was like ‘Oh’. But I didn’t know people still did that. I genuinely didn’t know people did that.”

During the same interview, Eilish also said that she “lost all of my friends when I got famous”.

She said that her best friend, Zoe, remained by her side but her only other friends were her employees.

“And then it was my 20th birthday and I remember looking around the room and it was only people that I employ. And all 15 years or more older than me,” she said.

Despite that, she said she has since got in touch with her old friends and made some new ones along the way.

Eilish added: “Exactly a year ago, I reconnected with a bunch of old friends and now, I have so many friends. I have a crew now! I could literally cry about it. It’s been the greatest thing that’s happened to me.”

The star revealed to Allen that she used to cry to the lyrics of her 2006 debut single ‘Smile’ but it inspired her to make new friends.

She added: “I used to want to cry hearing that line because I didn’t feel that way, because I didn’t have friends. And I remember thinking I want to feel that way. And I want to listen to this song that I relate to in every way and hear that line about friends and be like, my friends got my through it.”

Meanwhile, Eilish recently shared a self-directed video for ‘Chihiro’ from her new album.

Her ‘Hit Me Hard And Soft’ world tour is scheduled to begin this autumn. The UK and Ireland leg will take place in July 2025, and includes six nights at The O2 in London. Find any remaining tickets here (UK/Ireland) and here (North America).
