Reed was born in West Los Angeles, California. She is the daughter of Cheryl Houston, a beautician, and Seth Reed, a set designer. She has an older brother, Nathan August Reed.

In 2002, when Reed was 14 years old, she moved out of her mother's house and began living on her own, mainly in apartments of the Los Angeles area. After Thirteen's success, Reed returned to Alexander Hamilton High School, but
