Billie's Apple TV+ documentary shares a glimpse at her relationship with Q, also known as rapper 7:AMP.
Billie Eilish's Apple TV+ documentary is finally here and it gives fans an intimate look into her personal life, career and rise to fame. Billie also opens up about her previous relationship with Brandon Quention Adams, also known as "Q".
Billie previously opened up about her dating history back in 2020, explaining that she preferred to keep things private and date people in secret. In a previous interview with Capital FM, Billie said: "I've had relationships and kept them private, and even the ones that I've had; with the tiny amount that I've let the world see, I regret."
In her new Apple TV+ documentary The World's A Little Blurry, Billie gives fans glimpse into her previous relationship with Q, also known as rapper 7: AMP.
Here's everything the documentary reveals about Billie and Q's relationship and why they broke up.
Who is Brandon Quention Adams?
Brandon Adams, also known as "Q", is a rapper and songwriter who puts out music under the name 7:AMP.
According to various outlets, Q was reportedly born in June 1996, making him 24 years old. He released his first album, Bleaupro, in 2016. Billie also appeared on the cover of his debut album, as well as in a series of promotional shots for the project.
Neither of them publicly confirmed they were dating at any point during their relationship.
When did Billie Eilish and Q date?
It's unclear when they officially started dating. Q first appears in documentary in footage filmed in 2018, when Billie was 16.
Billie can be seen hugging Q at an event and is filmed sitting with him on a sofa backstage at the show. They're then shown ice skating together at her 17th birthday party and Billie later shows photos of the two of them together on her phone. Q is also seen at various events in early 2019, including Billie's album launch party.
In 2019, Billie can be seen being upset that Q didn't visit during her Coachella rehearsals. She explained the situation to her brother Finneas O'Connell saying: "I said, 'I'm getting you tickets for this, and the deal is that you have to spend time with me. You have to see me if I'm going to let you come for free. Haven't seen him in two and a half days."
He soon shows up but doesn't greet Billie after she asks him to see her after her performance.
Billie and Q appear to have broken up in June 2019.
Why did Billie Eilish and Q break up?
In the documentary, Billie explains why she broke up with Q, saying: "I just wasn't happy. And 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 certain things that the other person couldn't care less about."
"And there was just a lack of effort, I think. I literally was just like, 'Dude, you don't even have enough love to love yourself, you can't love me. And you don't. Like, you think you do.'"
Billie continued: "I do love him, though, which is what made it harder. 'Cause I'm not over him. I didn't find someone else. I didn't stop having love for him. I just, like, spent time away from him for a little bit and I was like, 'Wow. I'm missing so much because I'm worried about you all the time.'"
"I don't wanna fix him. I can't fix him, I've tried. I can't do it anymore."
Following their breakup, it seems like the two are still on good terms after Q wished Billie a happy birthday in December 2019.
