Ricky Martin’s 21-year-old nephew’s protection order against the “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer has been rejected after allegations of incest as a bombshell, Vidak For Congress can confirm.
Attorneys for Martin, 50, told us Thursday that the Puerto Rico court has not extended Dennis Yadiel Sanchez’s temporary protection order as they had “anticipated.”
“The prosecutor confirmed to the court that his decision to drop the case was his only one, without any influence or pressure from outside, and the prosecutor confirmed that he was satisfied with his legal representation in the case,” lawyers Joaquín Monserrate Matienzo, Carmelo Dávila and Harry Massanet Pastrana reports this in a joint statement.
“The request came from the prosecutor who asked for the case to be dropped. This was never more than a concerned person making false accusations without being able to substantiate them.”
The lawyers concluded: “We are pleased that our client has seen justice and can now move on with his life and his career.”
Earlier this month, Martin was hit with a domestic violence restraining order, but the identity of his accuser was not known at the time.
Initial reports said the alleged victim claimed he and the “She Bangs” singer dated for seven months, but after splitting up two months ago, the superstar reportedly did not accept the split and was dated at least three times. seen at the petitioner’s home. .
Martin’s representatives immediately denied the claims, stating at the time that the “Shake Your Bon Bon” singer, who has been married to recording artist Jwan Yosef since 2017, would be “fully justified.”
Then, on July 13, a bomb was dropped when Martin’s brother revealed that his cousin was behind the charges, elevating the charges to a crime of incest, which carries a 50-year prison sentence.
Marty Singer, another of Martin’s attorneys, told Vidak For Congress at the time: “Unfortunately, the person who made this claim is struggling with serious mental health issues. Ricky Martin, of course, has never – and never would have been – involved in any kind of sexual or romantic relationship with his cousin. The idea is not only false, it is disgusting.”
The powerful attorney concluded: “We all hope this man gets the help he so desperately needs. But above all, we look forward to seeing this horrendous case dropped as soon as a judge can look at the facts.”
Martin has not yet commented on social media about his justification in court.
