Childhood & Early Life
Skrillex was born Sonny John Moore on 15 January 1988, in Northeast Los Angeles. When Skrillex was 2 years old, his family relocated to San Francisco’s Forest Hill locality.
He started his education in an elementary school and later on shifted to a nearby boarding school situated in Mojave Desert in Las Vegas. When Skrillex was 12 years old, his family relocated back to Northeast Los Angeles.
His parents, who were members of the Scientology sect, admitted him in a private academy school that followed some of the ideologies of L Ron Hubbard—founder of the Scientology cult. In the school, he faced bullying and as a result he was homeschooled at the age of 14.
In 2004, at the age of 16, Skrillex learned that he was adopted and hence he dropped out of the school. As a teenager, Skrillex would often attend punk concerts in the Mexican American localities in South and East Los Angeles and later on went to clubs situated in downtown LA that played electro house music.
