Why Did Cleo Attack Her Mother?

According to numerous sources and reports, the couple claims that Cleo Rose Elliott has been aggressive and abusive since she was a child. Her violence began when she was 12 years old. According to Katharine, she mentioned that her daughter abused her verbally and emotionally as a little girl.

However, things began escalating when she stabbed her mother with a pair of scissors back in 2011. The actress further states that her daughter became very angry all of a sudden and murmured that she wanted to kill her mother.

Frightened and terrified by her daughter’s words, she rushed to call the police. Her daughter chased her through the house and cut off the phone line when Katharine tried to call for help.

Cleo initially threatened her mother by saying that she will hit her in the eyes with the scissors. Later, she stabbed her mother in her right arm a total of six times. Katharine says, “Cleo stabbed using enough force to pierce my skin through my shirt and leave me with marks that are still visible today.”

After this unfortunate incident took place, Katharine and Sam decided to file for a protective order. A judge then granted a restraining order against their daughter demanding her to stay at least 100 yards away from her mother.

This included her mother’s presence, home, workplace, and car. To this day, there is no reliable information stating what exactly happened to Cleo. Numerous online sources claim that she had a mental illness because of which she lunged at her mother and stabbed her.

But the authenticity of this claim remains under question as neither Katharine nor Sam has explained what happened.
