Taking about their past affairs, Elliot rarely finds himself the subject of tabloid fodder, likely because he prefers to keep his home life far away from the press.

On the other hand, Sophia is very open about her personal life. 

She dated Justin Bieber from August to December 2016. Her most high-profile relationship was with businessman and reality star Scott Disick. 

The couple was often criticized for their age difference. After years of on-and-off relationship, they finally split for good in 2020.

Shortly after the breakup, the fashion designer was spotted kissing an Israeli judo practitioner Gil Ofer in February in Miami. Their romance was short-lived.

Career Highlights: Owner Of Record Label 10K Projects

Elliot Grainge's love for the music industry comes from his family. His father, Sir Lucian Grainge, and uncle Nigel Grainge are big names in the music business world. 

He first experienced the real taste of music at his bar mitzvah, where the band Take That performs.

In an interview, the 28-year-old stated:

"They were No. 1 in the UK at the time. The party was great fun and gave me a real taste of how to create an exciting party".

He also revealed that he loves music and all musical genres, and Eminem is his all-time favorite.

"If you look at the streaming data and analytics over the past six years, you'll see anyone under 28 around the world has been raised on hip-hop. "It's a lifestyle, a culture, as a rock once was for another generation. And I believe it was Eminem who took it to the next step in terms of global reach."

Grainge, after witnessing his dad Sir Lucian Grainge's work firsthand for many years, opened his own record label, 10K Projects, after graduation.

"I was a weird kid who used to read the music trades. "What I noticed about my father's negotiating style was how transparent, honest, and sensible he was. When you put your cards on the table like that, negotiating is less competitive and more about teamwork. How can we get this done together so that everybody is happy?"

Reportedly, his record label has signed stars like Trippie Redd and Tekashi 6ix9ine and has gained 18 gold and eight platinum/multi-platinum singles.
