Who is Violet Maye Grohl?
Violet was born in Los Angeles, California USA, on 15 April 2006 – her zodiac sign is Aries, and she holds American nationality. She’s a singer and social media personality, while for now she’s probably only known for being a daughter of David Eric ‘Dave’ Grohl, a famous American musician.
Early life and education
Violet is being raised in Los Angeles alongside her younger siblings Harper Willow (born on 17 April 2009) and Ophelia Saint (born on 1 August 2014), by their father and their mother Jordyn Blum, who’s an American film producer, director and former model. Violet became interested in music at a very early age, mostly because she looked up to her father; she was seven when she began taking lessons, while she also started learning to play the guitar in the following year.
She became interested in acting upon enrolling at local high school in 2020, and is today a member of its drama club, while she could already have been seen appearing in a couple of school plays. Violet should be matriculating in 2024, and it’s believed that she will then pursue a college degree.
Violet is yet to launch her career in any field, however, she attracted a lot of attention in December 2021, when she and her father uploaded a video onto the internet featuring them covering an Amy Winehouse song.
Love life and relationships
Violet’s highly secretive when it comes to sharing the details of her love life with her fans, and hasn’t spoken of any girls (or boys) whom she has perhaps been with.
This is mostly why there are today rumors circulating the internet, concerning both her current relationship status and sexual orientation. Some of her father’s fans believe her to be a lesbian, claiming that this is why Violet avoids talking about the boys whom she has perhaps dated; a fan has even claimed to have seen Violet spending time with her alleged girlfriend, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Violet commented on this. There are also those who think that she’s today perhaps in a relationship with her high school sweetheart, but this hasn’t been confirmed either; none seem that important at her age of 16. As of June 2022, Violet seems to be unattached.
Hobbies and other interests
Violet enjoys being active on Instagram, and is today followed by close to 50,000 people, while she’s uploaded nearly 50 pictures onto the network, most of which are done in an artistic way. She’s into travelling, and has been to a couple of US states with her father, while the family has also vacationed in a couple of European countries, including Croatia and Italy. Summer is Violet’s favorite season, as she enjoys sun tanning at the beach and swimming in the ocean. She’s a huge lover of animals, with koalas and pandas being her favorites; it’s believed that Violet isn’t allowed to have pets. She’s a fan of Studio Ghibli movies, with some of her favorites being “The Tale of Princess Kaguya”, “Laputa: Castle in the Sky”, and “Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind”.
She also enjoys watching live-action movies, and her favorite actress is Natalie Portman, while a couple of her favorite films include “Black Swan”, “Leon: The Professional” and “V for Vendetta”.
Age, height and net worth
Violet’s age is 16. She has long brown hair and brown eyes, her height is 5ft 2ins (1.58m) and she weighs around 120lbs (55kgs). As of June 2022, she doesn’t yet have her own independent wealth, while her father Dave’s net worth has been estimated at over $320 million.
Who is her father, Dave Grohl?
Dave was born in Warren, Ohio USA, on 14 January 1969 – his zodiac sign is Capricorn, and he holds American nationality.
He’s probably known best for being the founder of the rock ‘n’ roll band Foo Fighters, and is today their singer, guitarist and songwriter. Dave was raised in Warren alongside his sister Lisa, by their father James Harper Grohl who was a newswriter, and their mother Virginia Jean (nee Hanlon) who was a teacher. James and Virginia divorced when Dave was seven, and he and his sister were then raised by their mother. James passed away aged 76 in 2014, Dave was 12 when he started taking guitar lessons but disliked them, so went on to teach himself, and began playing in a band with his friends; he turned to punk rock music after having attended a concert of Naked Raygun in 1982.
Dave studied at Thomas Jefferson High School, but his mother chose to transfer him to Bishop Ireton High School because of his cannabis-smoking habits; he transferred again to Annandale High School when he was 17, and then dropped out. It was when he was 17 that he lied about his age, and joined the hardcore punk band Scream as their drummer; this was also the reason behind his dropping out of high school. Dave stayed with them for around three years, when their bassist Skeeter Thompson quit while they were on a tour, which then led to their disbandment. In 1990, Dave became the drummer of American rock ‘n’ roll band Nirvana, and stayed with them until they disbanded in 1994, following the suicide of their singer Kurt Cobain.
Dave wasn’t sure about what to do with his career after Kurt’s death, and his initial idea was to join another band, but then changed his mind, recruited guitarist Pat Smear, bassist Nate Mendel and drummer William Goldsmith, and with them formed Foo Fighters, and they released their eponymous debut album in July 1995. Their second album “The Colour and the Shape” came out in May 1997, while a couple of their following albums were “There is Nothing to Left to Lose” (1999), “One by One” (2002) and “In Your Honor” (2005). The Foo Fighters’ sixth album “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace” was released on 25 September 2007, and their seventh album “Wasting Light” followed on 12 April 2011, becoming their first album to top the US charts.
Their eighth album “Sonic Highways” came out on 10 November 2014, and was followed by their ninth “Concrete and Gold” on 15 September 2017. Most recently, on 5 February 2021, Foo Fighters released their 10th album, “Medicine at Midnight”, which peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Prior to meeting Violet’s mother, Dave was married to photographer Jennifer Leigh Youngblood from 1994 to 1997. He has revealed in an interview that he’s nearly entirely deaf in his left ear, and while making a guest appearance in “The Howard Stern Show” in February 2022, Dave revealed that he’s actually struggling with tinnitus, and that he has been forced to mostly read people’s lips for the past two decades.
