Meiling Melançon was born in Metro Manila, Philippines at the Philippine General Hospital, and raised in mainly Japan, Hong Kong and Korea, she is of French, Chinese, and Japanese descent. As a child she traveled throughout Asia and Europe. Her mother, nightclub singer Elizabeth Rose, is of French heritage and her biological father, a businessman, is Chinese and Japanese.

She was not allowed to watch most films and television, only classics and that they were not allowed to listen to popular music due to religious reasons.
