Why Is Michelle Cartier Unpopular With Amanda And Gina?

Three women gained fresh life after they fled captor Ariel Castro’s “home of horrors” about five years ago.

Due to the publication of her second novel, Life After Darkness: Finding Healing and Happiness After the Cleveland Kidnappings, Michelle is once again making news.

The artist, author, and speaker, now 37, was kidnapped when she was 20 years old.

According to People, Gina, 28, has made the decision to avoid the spotlight and is savoring her independence with her loved ones at her home outside of Cleveland.

The pair previously admitted that they don’t communicate with Michelle, explaining that their kidnapper used psychological tricks to prevent them from developing confidence in one another.

He accepted a plea deal and pleaded guilty to 937 criminal counts of rape, kidnapping, and aggravated murder.

Ariel tried his best to set the ladies against each other while they were held hostage, to prevent any lasting alliances, affiliations, or friendships.
