Cleo Rose Elliot is the only daughter of famous American voice actor and actor Sam Elliot and actress Katharine Ross. Cleo got fame not because of her star parents but because of her own talent.
She is a popular American singer, musician, and model and has millions of fans for her chart-hitting music. Cleo has earned this fame and reputation as one of the most talented artists in America.
She has also earned mal reputation for her awful behavior with her mother, Katharine. In the worst case, she was accused of stabbing her mother several times with scissors.
Although she is the only child of her parents, Sam and Katharine couldn’t raise her well. Many fans refer to her as a ‘spoiled child.’ So what is the case?
Is Cleo Rose Elliot really spoiled, or does she have the intention to kill her mother? What is the reason behind her stabbing her own mother? Let us know everything below.
What is the Story Behind Cleo Stabbing Her Mother?
While it may sound petrifying that a daughter is trying to stab her mother and vice-versa, but it happened with actress Katherine Ross. Her own daughter is blamed for stabbing her multiple times on different parts of her body.
Cleo has never had a good bonding with her mother since her childhood. When she was a teenager, Cleo started to become violent and abusive towards Katharine, which kept increasing as she grew up.
However, at that time, Katharine used to keep their family issues within themselves. Things went out in public when Cleo crossed her limits.
The story is from 2011, when 27 years old Cleo got mad and, out of nowhere, told her mother that she wanted to kill her. The musician suddenly lost her temper and started to kick every piece of furniture and started to look for her mother in the house.
Katharine ran towards the telephone to call the cops, and Cleo followed her to the telephone and cut the wire with a scissor in her hand. She threatened her mother to poke her eyes out. But instead of poking her eyes, she stabbed her arm through her dress. The stabbing mark is still visible on Katharine’s arm.
Why did Cleo Stab her mother?
The story above you heard is not fictional, but a real one. After learning about this extreme violence of Cleo towards her mother, many people assumed that Cleo was intoxicated or drunk heavily, for which she had no sense of what she was doing.
However, the hatred to kill her mother did not develop in a single day. She definitely had some hidden rage over mother, which we don’t know about.
The exact reason Cleo went to such extremity is still unknown; at least, she was not drunk. In fact, Katharine has also not spoken about this behavior of her daughter in public.
What Happened to Katharine after She Got Stabbed?
After Katharine got stabbed on her arm on March 2, 2011, she filed a case against her daughter’s violence and wanted a protective order six days later. The court gave a strict protective order to Cleo, which was she had to maintain a hundred yards of distance from Katharine, whether it was her house or car.
And if she visits her parents’ house, it must be under the presence of police. The document also stated that Cleo could not try to call or reach her mother in any form. Later on March 30, 2011, the hearing was to be held at Santa Monica.
What is the Current Relationship Between Cleo and Katharine?
So, you might be wondering what the current bonding between Cleo and her mother after all these years of physical and mental violence towards her is? After inspecting some past interviews, it is confirmed that Cleo and her mother’s relationship is improving day by day.
The mother-daughter duo is seen in many award ceremonies and interviews together. In a 2017 interview at Sundance Film Festival, the American music star was seen to praise her parents. She said that her parents are amazing actors and she is very proud of them.
After that heinous incident of 2011, there was no other violent story heard from Katharine! Maybe, it is really that Cleo and Katharine’s relationship has improved.
If the bonding between the mother-daughter has really improved, then it is great news! However, if Cleo is just trying to clean her bad reputation and pretending to be good with her mother, then there will be nothing more depressing than this.
As well-wishers, we truly hope that the musician has learned her lessons and came to the right path. We hope that actress Katharine is as happy in her personal life as she shows in front of the camera in public.
