The party took place at a bowling alley and amongst the spotted included Benny Blanco — and Billie.

The former couple dated for seven months before splitting sometime in May this year.

Their relationship sparked controversy for their 11-year age gap. At the time, Billie was 20 years old, and Jesse was 31.

When rumblings of their breakup first hit the Internet, Billie hopped on an Instagram Q&A to address the split. She shared that the exes were still "very very good friends" and that Jesse is her "homie forever."

However, recently, after the release of Jesse's album, lyrics for the song "POV" came under scrutiny as fans called out the way the lyrics seemed to point towards Billie, alluding to their age gap in a not-so-flattering way.

"She's been listening to me since 2013. I know she's got daddy issues, welcome to the family," said the lyrics.

But in lieu of the controversy, videos, and photos taken at the listening party, seems all is well between the former couple. Billie is seen mouthing the lyrics to another song of Jesse's, "Turn Heel," that name drops the Grammy-winning artist.

Everyone looked like they had a fun time, including a tiny dog that scored an invite to the party.
