Brett Rossi is no longer Brett Rossi.
The former adult film star and fiancée to Charlie Sheen tells Us Weekly exclusively that she is changing both her first and last name.
Rossi, 24, will be returning to her birth name Scottine, and taking on Sheen's last name in advance of their wedding. She has already changed her Twitter name and handle to Scottine Sheen and @scottine_sheen.
"I'm trying to leave my porn past behind me and start living as me," Rossi told Us. "[Sheen] has been complaining about it and I said, 'they won't EVER stop calling me Brett Rossi unless I start getting out and doing things as me. You have to let me do things as Scottine (pronounced Scott-teen).'"
"Even though we aren't married, I still go by Sheen as my last name," Rossi said. "I don't want to go back to Rossi since I'm happily divorced and it's pointless to go back to my maiden name since my last name will be changing again soon anyway… Everyone already calls me Scottine Sheen. It's different, considering we aren't married yet… But we basically are."
Rossi and Sheen, 48, are planning to tie the knot in the coming months. The Anger Management actor proposed to his fiancée on Feb. 15 in Hawaii with an impressive diamond ring. It will be the fourth marriage for Charlie and the second for Brett/Scottine.
"Brett Rossi is a past of mine that I'm ready to move past," she continued to Us. "I originally started modeling under my real name Scottine when I was 14 years old. I changed it to Brett Rossi only 4 years ago. [The name] sort of blew up bigger than I expected and [it] just stuck. However, I am not in the adult industry anymore and keeping that name keeps myself, as well as the world, from moving past my past. Everyone has a past and a story, but my past does not define who I am as a person. Now, I'm preparing the be a wife, a step-mommy and starting a fresh chapter in my life… Brett Rossi left the building a year ago when I retired."
The name change isn't the only major movement in Rossi's life. "We also adopted a flamingo at the Santa Barbara Zoo and named him Klay-vinn!" she continued to Us. "I'm a huge animal activist and I'm doing things with the World Wildlife Foundation. We got a plaque and it's the first thing that says 'Charlie and Scottine Sheen' publicly."
