Cleveland kidnapping survivor Michelle Knight has finally found happiness after years of being tortured at the hands of a monster — she has a new boyfriend.
On May 6, 2013, Michelle, Amanda Berry and Gina Dejesus were freed from the "House of Horrors" after being held captive, raped, starved and beaten for a decade by Ariel Castro - who later hung himself in his jail cell after he was sentenced to life in prison.

Michelle Knight was the only one of Castro's victims to go to court and face the man who took away ten years of her life so she could testify against him.
She recently revealed to Fox 8 about her newfound happiness.
“He’s such an amazing person,” the 34-year-old said of her beau — who she didn’t name. “He’s sweet-hearted. He’s right there with me all the time and he supports everything that I do.”
Michelle is optimistic about what’s to come, adding, “[I’m] looking forward to happiness, a future, a life I never had.”
She’s been candid about her experience with Castro ever since her release and has written a memoir — Finding Me, which was recently made into a Lifetime movie starring Taryn Manning — and a song, called, ‘Survivor.’

She added that she’d like to write another book — but it’ll be nothing like her first.
“It’s going to be about my future and how I triumphed against everything that happened to me and everything that was holding me down,” Michelle explained.
“My fears and how I conquered them, because it’s really hard.”
