Ricky Martin’s Domestic Violence Case Dismissed

The singer is off the hook after his nephew’s claims of incest and abuse. Ricky Martin’s lawyer issued a statement today revealing that the temporary protection order issued against him wasn’t extended. This after the accuser issued a request asking the court to dismiss the case. 

The singer was accused earlier this month of having a sexual relationship with his 21-year old nephew, claims Martin has since denied. A protective order was granted against Ricky by a Puerto Rico judge underneath the local Law 54, also known as the Domestic Abuse Prevention and Intervention Act. A hearing was scheduled for today to determine the future of the protective order as the accuser initially told the courts he feared for his safety.

Ricky’s brother Eric Martin, also alleged that the singer was sexually involved with his nephew Dennis Yadiel Sanchez after the restraining order was filed.

A rep for the artist told The Hollywood Reporter that the allegations are “completely false and fabricated.” Martin’s lawyer has claimed that the accuser suffers from deep mental health challenges and told US Weekly earlier this month that “Ricky Martin has, of course, never been and would never be involved in any kind of sexual or romantic relationship with his nephew. The idea is not only untrue, it is disgusting.”

Martin spoke on the allegations earlier this month, stating that he hopes his nephew gets all the helps he needs and that he is looking forward to the case being dismissed.
