Gaby was born in Manhattan, New York City on January 8, 1982. When she was still a baby, her parents divorced and life began to happen to her and her mother so quickly. The family soon started living on people’s goodwill as they moved into an apartment at the Chelsea Hotel alongside her half-sister Alexandra, born out of her mother’s earlier marriage to Michel Auder.

According to Gaby, being raised at the Chelsea hotel was fun as she and her best friend Talya Shomron would roller-skate in the hallways, spy on the drug dealer across the hall. She attended elementary school in Manhattan at P.S. 3 on Hudson Street in the West Village, then another school in Hell’s Kitchen.

Things, however, turned badly for them as they were evicted from the Chelsea Hotel for not paying the monthly rent of $920 for two years in 1994. They moved to Los Angeles the same year and she continued her education at the Buckley School, before finally graduating from Calabasas High School in 1999.
