Ricky Martin’s attorney stated Friday that the singer never had “any type of romantic or sexual interaction with his young nephew,” despite the fact that the younger relative has accused Martin of domestic violence in Puerto Rico.
Lawyer Marty Singer informed Deadline today, “Regrettably, the individual who filed this claim is battling with serious mental health difficulties.” This comes from the mouth of Martin. He said, “Ricky Martin has, of obviously, never been — and will not be engaged in any sort of physical or intimate relationships with his own nephew.” The Hollywood powerhouse lawyer is no stranger to courtroom drama. In addition to being false, the idea is repulsive.
Ricky Martin Faces A Restraining Order
The singer expressed collective hope that the man would receive the necessary assistance. However, we are extremely hopeful that the judge will dismiss this terrible case after reviewing the evidence.
In the aftermath of his alleged seven-month personal affair with his nephew, age 21, Ricky Martin has indeed been met with an interim injunction and, more lately, with additional claims of abuse and more. The claims will be heard in a court on July 21 in Puerto Rico. Martin faces nearly 50 years in prison if he is convicted of the felony charge of domestic assault against a family member.
Martin, a Grammy winner, and star of American Crime Story’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace is being sued for $3 million by his on-again, off-again manager Rebecca Drucker for unpaid commissions, and these newest claims from non – incorporated U.S. territory and the lawyer’s response come in the midst of an explosive legal battle. Drucker and the Venable LLP team claim that the plaintiff prevented the allegedly substance-abusing “Livin’ la Vida Loca” singer from facing a “possibly career-ending accusation in September 2020,” hanging a blade of Damocles over Martin in an effort to presumably speed up proceedings.
Martin and the Lavely & Singer lawyers have been relatively quiet about Drucker’s complaint since it was filed in L.a. Superior Court on June 29.
