Ricky Martin And The Incest Scandal
Ricky Martin was accused by his nephew of maintaining a sexual, physical relationship with him for over seven months. Ricky Martin is aged 50 while the accuser is currently 21 years old.
When Dennis accused his uncle, he also confessed that after the supposed breakup, the singer ‘lost his mind’ and went on to psychologically and physically attack his nephew. Apparently, after continuously insisting on calling him and being rejected, the singer proceeded to loiter near his house.
According to reports, if these allegations had been proven to be accurate, the ‘King Of Latin Pop’ could face up to 50 years of imprisonment.
Ricky Martin’s Nephew Asked For The Dismissal Of The Case
The court-assigned restraining order against Ricky Martin has been legally dismissed as it has been revealed that his nephew and the accuser, Dennis Yadiel Sanchez, have requested the dismissal of the entire case.
Since the news of the case dismissal, Ricky Martin’s attorneys have released a statement for the media, claiming that this was “anticipated” and that the decision by the accuser “came from him only”.
“Just as we had anticipated, the temporary protection order was not extended by the Court. The accuser confirmed to the court that his decision to dismiss the matter was his alone, without any outside influence or pressure. The accuser confirmed he was satisfied with his legal representation in the matter. The request came from the accuser asking to dismiss the case.”
“This was nothing more than a troubled individual making false allegations with absolutely nothing to substantiate them. We are glad that our client saw justice done and can now move forward with his life and his career.”\
Ricky Martin reacted to the news of these allegations when they were made on July 01. He had clearly stated that the allegations were “false and fabricated.”
Some of the public is speculating that Ricky Martin may have paid his nephew to drop the charges.
