Billie Eilish has asked her fans to “be nice” after her ex-boyfriend Brandon Quentin Adams (a.k.a. 7:AMP) wound up copping major heat following the release of her documentary, The World’s A Little Blurry.
After the doco’s release on February 25, where she publicly discusses her relationship and break up with Brandon/Q – something she’s kept very private until now – Billie recognised and thanked fans for protecting her, but reminded them to “be nice to people no matter what”.

Fans went after Q after learning about their relationship’s timeline through the doco, which establishes that they were dating when Billie was 19 and Q was 24. However, Q also appears in documentary footage dating back to 2018, when Billie was 16.
It is not known when they began dating, but fans have generally gotten the ick from Q for this and his other behaviour, which Billie has admitted was “self-destructive”.
if your watching the Billie Eilish documentary heres a reminder: Brandon Adams (Q) was 21 dating Billie Eilish at 17. #TheWorldsALittleBlurry

Amid the backlash and general distaste towards Q and his behaviour, he posted a lengthy note on his own Instagram story to say that “there’s several point (sic) of views to a situation.”

“People fail to realize I’ve been dealing with my brother’s death,” he wrote.
“Especially around that time when it was fresh. Sometimes you have to be alone to cope. Sometimes people disagree and don’t want the same things as one another.
“It’s on you to understand there’s several point (sic) of view to a situation. Anyone who knows me knows where my heart is.”
In the documentary, Billie explains why she and her ex Q ended their relationship, with her saying that they “didn’t want the same things”, that he didn’t love himself enough, and that there was a lack of effort in the relationship.
“I just wasn’t happy,” she 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.
“I don’t think that’s fair to him. There was just a lack of effort. I was literally like, ‘Dude, you don’t have enough love to love yourself so you can’t love me, dude. And you don’t. You think you do.’”
