Michelle Knight is Changing Her Name

Posted By on Fri, May 2, 2014 at 2:03 PM


Cleveland kidnapping victim Michelle Knight announced this morning on The Today Show that she is changing her name.

"I felt like every brand new start needs new beginnings," she told Today.

Her new name? Lillian Rose Lee. She says she'll go by Lily.

While in captivity, Knight also suffered from identity fraud, after a family acquaintance used Knight's name to cash in on government benefits.

The announcement of her name change comes just days before the one year anniversary of Cleveland kidnapping victims' rescue and the release of Knight's memoir "Finding Me."

In commemoration of the first anniversary of the women's release, Scene recently penned a story on another one of the faces associated with the May 6 rescue: viral sensation Charles Ramsey. You can read that story here.
