Billie Eilish works extensively with her brother and songwriting partner, Finneas O’Connell. Because of their work together he has been hired by huge stars to work with them, and even recorded his own album. Behind the scenes, however, is a young woman who fans have suggested my have a canny resemblance to Billie herself.
Who is Finneas’ girlfriend?
Finneas O’Connell has been dating YouTube star Claudia Sulewski.
Claudia has more than 2million subscribers to her YouTube channel, where she posts vlogs about her life and her relationship with Finneas.
She also has a podcast with Finneas called We Bought A House, about their relationship moving to the next level.

Little is known about how they met, but it is clear the couple have been together since October 2018 and quickly started appearing in each other’s social media since their relationship started.
Outside of her own channel, Claudia has also appeared in multiple fictional YouTube series created by AwesomenessTV, such as Versus, The Commute, and [email protected]
However, one of the most striking things about Claudia is, according to fans, the similarities between Claudia and his world-famous sister.
Fans have made countless comments on Instagram and other social media platforms about how Claudia is the doppelgänger of Billie, something Finneas would likely be keen to ignore.
Arguably, however, the first woman in Finneas’ life is his sister, given how intertwined they are in the music world.
Speaking to Atwood magazine about his collaboration with his sister, Finneas, 22, said: “Being able to hear an artist and emulate them has been a huge part of being successful as a producer and co-writer…
“Well for Billie, if I’m writing a song alone for Billie like Ocean Eyes or Watch or Six Feet Under, I want to write a song that I think she’ll relate to and enjoy singing and empathise with the lyrics and make her own.
“And if I’m writing a song with Billie I’m just trying to help her tell whatever story she’s trying to tell, bounce ideas off of her, listen to her ideas.
“Similarly to other artists, if you’re writing and you know that someone else’s voice is going to be the voice telling the story, it should be a language that fits them. I think that’s the biggest key.”
Outside of his work with Billie, Finneas has released his own EP, Blood Harmony, and is a producer on work from a variety of different performers such as Selena Gomez, Halsey and Camila Cabello.
As part of Billie’s mammoth Grammy wins in 2020, Finneas won the Grammy for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical, as well as four Grammys alongside his sister.
However, given how prominent the pair are on each other’s social media presences, it seems likely Finneas and Claudia will keep releasing their own content outside of his work with Billie.
