SINGER Ricky Martin has been accused by his own nephew of alleged domestic violence in court documents, which could land the pop star behind bars for 50 年.
Dennis Yadiel Sanchez, 21, was identified as Ricky’s accuser in the case over in Puerto Rico, meaning the incident could possibly involve incest.
Ricky’s brother, Eric, reportedly identified Sanchez as the alleged victim as Ricky is scheduled to appear in court on July 21.
Puerto Rican law has stricter penalties for certain sexual crimes when the alleged victim and the accuser are related, but it’s not specifically known what Ricky is facing.
Spanish news website 标记 reported that Ricky would face up to 50 years if he’s convicted.
“The allegations against Ricky Martin that lead to a protection order are completely false and fabricated,” said Ricky’s reps in a statement to 人们.
“We are very confident that when the true facts come out in this matter our client Ricky Martin will be fully vindicated.”
Ricky also made a statement on Twitter writing, “The protection order entered against me is based on completely false allegations, so I will respond through the judicial process with the facts and the dignity that characterize me.
“Because it is an ongoing legal matter, I cannot make detailed statements at this time. I am grateful for the countless messages of solidarity, and I receive them with all my heart.”
The Grammy Award-winning singer was accused of domestic violence earlier this month and the alleged victim’s identity was unknown until now.
The victim got a temporary restraining order against Ricky, who has denied all of the allegations.
Marca reported that Sanchez allegedly ended a seven-month relationship with his famous uncle, which Ricky allegedly did not take well and continued to contact his nephew and show up at his home.
The Sun has reached out to Ricky Martin’s management but has not received word back at this time.
