BILLIE Eilish has been accused of "queerbaiting" after she was spotted with actor Matthew Tyler Vorce.
The 19-year-old singer's fans claimed she'd been hinting she's LGBTQ with her Lost Cause music video, in which she dances with a group of girls in a slumber party setting.
Fans also pointed out Billie's recent Instagram post, in which she shared photos from the video and wrote: "I love girls."
So critics felt misled when the singer was seen with actor Matthew, 29, in Disneyland last week.
Billie and Matthew, who both had face masks on, were joined on their date by a bodyguard during their VIP tour.
Amid the confusion, one fan tweeted: "If Billie Eilish says she's straight after this music vid ima be mad because that's straight queerbaiting."
Another wrote: "Is Billie Eilish bi? Or did I just watch four minutes of queerbaiting done by a straight person?"
A third wanted to know, "Did Billie Eilish just come out?" while sharing a screenshot of her "I love girls" caption.
The Bad Guy singer previously came under fire over her 2019 song Wish You Were Gay, which is about a man who isn't interested in her.
Billie defended herself at the time, saying: “First off I want to be so clear that it’s so not supposed to be an insult. I feel like it’s been a little bit misinterpreted.
“I tried so hard to not make it in any way offensive. The whole idea of the song is, it’s kind of a joke.
“It’s kind of like, ‘I’m an ass and you don’t love me. And you don’t love me because you don’t love me and that’s the only reason and I wish you didn’t love me because you didn’t love girls.'”
While Billie has been keeping quiet about her love life as of late, fans believe Lost Cause is about her ex, Brandon Adams.
The Party's Over artist spoke about Brandon a lot in her Apple TV+ documentary, discussing how unhappy she was with her ex.
Billie said: "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."
Billie continued: "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.'"
In an Instagram Story, Brandon revealed back in March that he was dealing with the death of his brothers at the time of his split.
Brandon said: "Sometimes people disagree and don't want the same things as one another.
"It's on you to understand there's several points of view to a situation."
