Rocco was born in Los Angeles, California on August 11, 2000. His father is British while his mother is American, causing him to have dual citizenship in both countries. He was christened at Dornoch Cathedral in Scotland on December 21, 2000. His parents divorced in 2008 and have been in a bitter custody battle over him ever since.
Rocco was raised between New York City, Los Angeles, and London and was educated by a private tutor. He has traveled much of the world alongside her mother touring and has done charity work with her in Malawi.
Rocco Ritchie was arrested at Steele's Mews North in Primrose Hill for possessing Cannibis. A neighbor saw Rocco and a friend sitting on a wall ingesting illegal substances and reported it to the authorities. Recently, he has been seen hanging around London's version of the projects trying to get into local pubs.
