Even Billie Eilish has dating horror stories.

While speaking on the latest episode of the BBC podcast Miss Me?, Eilish, 22, told hosts Lily Allen and Miquita Oliver that she's "been ghosted for sure."

"I had a crazy ghosting happen actually this December. It was insane," Eilish — who has had low-key romances with rapper Brandon "Q" Adams, actor Matthew Tyler Vorce, and The Neighbourhood frontman Jesse Rutherford over the years — said.

"Probably the craziest one that's ever happened to me," the "What Was I Made For?" hitmaker told Allen, 39, and Oliver, 40.

"I was like, 'Did you die? Did you literally die?' " Eilish joked, adding: "It was somebody that I’d also known for years and had a plan, day of, on the phone, making a plan, this is my address, be there at 3 — never heard from him again. Ever. I couldn’t believe it."

"I was like, 'What a f---ing little pathetic man. What a tiny little man,' " the Oscar-winning singer went on, sharing: "It was literally unbelievable. To this day, never texted me again."

"I did see that he was dating someone," Eilish told the hosts. "And I was like, ‘Oh’. I didn’t know people still did that. I genuinely didn’t know people did that.”

Eilish's comments come after she told Rolling Stone in an unpublished excerpt from her recent cover story that she's still on friendly terms with her rocker ex-boyfriend Rutherford, 32.

“That’s my guy, truly one of my favorite people in the world,” she told th -

Eilish’s representative confirmed her split from Rutherford to PEOPLE in May 2023. The exes, who were last seen together at Coachella in April 2023, dated for less than a year before announcing their split.

In her Rolling Stone interview, Eilish joked she never wanted to be in a relationship again. “I plan on never dating again,” she said. 

“That’s not true, obviously. But no, I don’t see myself being serious with anyone until I find someone that really feels right to me, and that is not interesting to me right now,” Eilish added.

In the candid interview, Eilish also opened up about coming to terms with her sexuality and why she had initially planned to keep that part of her life private.

While discussing the sexual nature of her Hit Me Hard and Soft album track "Lunch," Eilish said, "That song was actually part of what helped me become who I am, to be real,” adding: “I wrote some of it before even doing anything with a girl, and then wrote the rest after."

"I’ve been in love with girls for my whole life, but I just didn’t understand — until, last year, I realized I wanted my face in a vagina," she continued.
