Cleveland kidnapping survivor announce to Dr. Phil that she is married
She has moved on and got married.
Michelle Knight was one of three women who was kidnapped and held captive in Ariel Castro's Cleveland House of Horrors for 11 years, as reported by Daily Mail.
In the recent interview with Dr. Phil, which is expected to air later this month, she opened up about her recent nuptials.
In a video teaser provided to DailyMail, she says to Dr. Phil: “It’s so good to see you... I got really good news for you."
She then confirmed that she's happily married, prompting the audience to cheer and applaud as they saw the wedding photos of the couple appear onscreen.
Knight, who changed her name to Lily Rose, married a 39-year-old man named Miguel. They tied the knot in May 2016.
The complete details about their wedding day will be shown in the Dr. Phil episode, which set to air on April 24.
The 36-year-old author also announced that her second book, Life After Darkness: My Journey To Happiness, is set to release in early May.
The release date lands on the fifth anniversary of her escape from Ariel Castro's Cleveland House of Horrors.
Knight, then 20, was kidnaped by Castro in 2002. The other victims of the 2002-2004 infamous kidnappings were Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus. After suffering years of torture, they were freed in 2013.
Her first best-selling book, Finding Me, was released in 2014, where she revealed how Castro abused her before the other victims were brought into his home.
Knight recalled that Castro, the father to one of her friends, repeatedly told her: "You're a person with no meaning."
On August 22, 2002, she was first lured into Castro’s house by the promise of a puppy for her son, Jack.
But there was no puppy in the house. As soon as Castro closed the door, she knew she was in big trouble.
Knight was strung from a wire in a bedroom. Two days later, Castro raped her. During her years of captivity, she became pregnant five times. But she miscarried because Castro starved and punished her.
Castro kidnapped Berry in April 2003 and DeJesus in April 2004. He also brought them into his house.
On May 6, 2013, the three victims finally escaped and Castro faced multiple charges, including 512 counts of kidnapping, 446 counts of rape and two counts of aggravated murder in the death of Knight's unborn baby.
On September 3, 2013, Castro committed suicide just one month into his prison sentence, Daily Mail reported.
