Yes, someone really did claim that Finneas and Billie Eilish are successful because of their parents' "connections" in the industry. Their parents, Maggie Baird and Patrick O'Connell, have worked in the acting and film spheres throughout their lives, but the 22-year-old singer, songwriter and producer took to Twitter to set the record straight.
Finneas responded to the troll's since-deleted tweet on Monday (Feb. 24), by noting that "During my life time, our parents were never able to fully financially support us off of their work as actors. Our dad worked 12 hour days 7 days a week as a construction worker for Mattel and our mom was a teacher. Our parents gave us love but knew no one in the record industry."
