Chloe was born in Thousand Oaks, California. She is of Italian and Irish descent and was raised Catholic. She has described herself as having been an over-imaginative child, with more imaginary friends than real ones.

She quit at age 17 due to developing arthritis in her hips and to feeling exhausted.
She says she lost her virginity aged 11 with her 15 year old boyfriend. In first grade, an accident had damaged her clitoris, describing it is "always hard but I don't feel anything". However, she is still able to orgasm through stimulation of her g-spot, which often involves inserting large, wide objects into her vagina, and she has stated "the deeper the better".
