Born on the 17th of September 1984, in Malibu, California USA, Cleo Rose Elliott is a 33-year-old Caucasian model, musician and singer, but perhaps best known for being the only child of two famous Hollywood stars – Sam Elliot and Katharine Ross.

Early Life and Education
As media sources report, Cleo’s parents met each other on the set of the Hollywood movie entitled “Legacy”. Supposedly, their romance started at that point, after which they married in 1984. It is unknown when Cleo exactly gained an interest in what she does today, although there is the fact that her parents used to send her to flute and guitar classes at a very early point in her youth. As her musical experience increased, she was eventually able to grasp rhythm enough to teach herself how to sing. She studied singing from 2002 to 2006 at the prestigious Joanne Barron/D.W. Brown Acting Studio in Santa Monica, California. Over the course of her singing education, she made Italian opera her main focus, but a year into the acting studio experience, Cleo made an appearance in the live hair-styling show entitled “Sexyhair”, which accounts for her first modeling job. After she graduated from the said educational institution, she received additional training from the famous Charity Chapman, which helped her learn how to sing classical opera also.
She entered the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) society with the help of her aforementioned tutor, who introduced her to Bobby Harby, a producer and a member of the said institution; she showed Bobby a single song that she wrote, for which he had a strong impression, then in the magazine “Malibu Times” in January of 2008, Cleo announced a solo CD entitled “No More Lies.” When interviewed about the song, Cleo stated: ‘The sound is very pop rock, but I’m really into heavy hard rock.’ When asked about the main song of the album, she said: ‘The song is about love, of course, and finding love and losing it but it is not about one specific person.’ Aside from her own album, she has also collaborated with other famous musicians, such as 2 Cents and Tin Horn. When asked about her style, Cleo stated that it was inspired by multiple musical legends, such as Guns’n’Roses, Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd, ultimately adding Fiona Apple and Sheryl Crow to the list. In spite of her parents’ fame and the talent that numerous ASCAP members vouched for, Cleo’s musical debut was short lived, and she didn’t manage to gain significant recognition for it.
Although it’s evident that her parents were quite supportive during her maturation, it doesn’t seem that Cleo has much affection for her mother. According to the media, Cleo has in multiple instances been quite aggressive towards Katharine, and in March 2011, there was an allegation that stated Cleo lost control and threatened to kill her, following Katharine around the house until ultimately the latter called the police for help, so Cleo cut the telephone wire with a pair of scissors, saying she would poke her mother’s eyes out. There is no evidence that this incident went down exactly this way, but it was reported by DailyMail that Katharine was granted a protective order against Cleo, which prohibited her from coming any closer than 100 yards to her mother, her mother’s car and workplace. To top it off, Katharine had a police officer escort.
