He spent most of his growing days with his maternal grandparents, Ruby and William Metrejon. He also has two younger step-brothers.
His biological father also remarried but committed suicide when Jared Leto was just eight.
While growing up, his mother encouraged him and the family to get involved with arts leading to the birth of his journey into music and arts with his first musical instrument being a worn-out piano.
Though Jared Leto dropped out of the school in the 10th grade, he managed to re-enroll for private classes at the Emerson Preparatory School in Washington.
