Ricky Martin breaks silence about nephew’s sexual relationship claims

Ricky Martin spoke out for the first times since the case in which his nephew claimed that he was in a sexual relationship and then had been followed by him.

Martin described the allegations in a two-minute video that TMZ obtained.

Martin, 50, sat on a couch in a suit and tie and said, “I’m here today because I really have to talk to get my healing process started.”

He claimed that he was not allowed to speak publically until the case was settled.

Martin addressed his 21-year old nephew directly. This is not something I wish on anyone.”

He said, “To the person who was making this nonsense, I wish the best for him, and I hope he finds the help he needs to start a new life full of love, truth, joy, and no one else.”

“Now, my priority…with music. I can’t wait to get back on stage. I cannot wait to get back on stage and entertain. That’s what I love most.

Martin released another video, this time in Spanish.

A court in Puerto Rico lifted a restraining or against Livin’ La Vida Loca’s singer on Thursday. Martin attended the hearing via remote from Los Angeles.

His nephew obtained the temporary order following a domestic violence case in which he claimed he feared his safety due to Martin’s refusal to accept his decision about ending a romantic relationship. He also continued to call Martin and had been loitering outside his house.

Martin tweeted that truth prevails after the case was closed.

A statement from his legal team was also attached. It stated: “The accuser has confirmed to the court that he made the decision to dismiss the case on his own, without any outside influence or pressure. The accuser also confirmed that he was satisfied by the legal representation he received in the matter.

“The accuser requested to dismiss the case.

“This was nothing more than a troubled person making false allegations without any evidence to support them.” We are happy that our client was able to see justice and can now move on with his life, and his career.

Martin’s nephew was not named in the documents. However, representatives of the pop star confirmed the identity after rumours spread online last week. He has not spoken out about the allegations.

Martin denied any accusations made against him via Twitter earlier this month and said they were “completely untrue”.

Martin will perform at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Friday and Saturday.

Since 2017, the singer has been married to Jwan Yosef, a Syrian-Swedish artist. They live together in Puerto Rico’s Dorado with their two children.
