After his nephew accused him of domestic violence, anti-Trump singer Ricky Martin is denying allegations that he engaged in an incestuous relationship.
An attorney for Martin, Marty Singer, told EW that the claims are “untrue” and “disgusting” and will be dismissed when a judge hears the case.
In a statement, Singer explained, “Unfortunately, the person who made this claim is struggling with deep mental health challenges.”
“Ricky Martin has, of course, never been — and would never be — involved in any kind of sexual or romantic relationship with his nephew,” the statement continued.
The statement concluded, “The idea is not only untrue, it is disgusting. We all hope that this man gets the help he so urgently needs. But, most of all, we look forward to this awful case being dismissed as soon as a judge gets to look at the facts.”
A restraining order was issued earlier this month under Law 54, also known as the Domestic Abuse Prevention and Intervention Act, accusing Martin of harassment.
Martin was known to be the alleged perpetrator but the petitioner’s name was not revealed and he shot down the filing at the time, calling it “false and fabricated.”
That isn’t Martin’s only legal trouble as a lawsuit was filed against him in June in Los Angeles by his former manager for over $3 million in unpaid commissions.
In the complaint, his former manager mentions that she purportedly protected him for a “potentially career-ending allegation.”
The manager, Rebecca Drucker, who managed Martin between 2014 and 2018 and again between 2020 and 2022, insists she is owed millions of dollars in commission after she helped him navigate recording contracts, sponsorship deals, and other professional endeavors.
Martin was vocal in his support for Joe Biden prior to the 2020 election and at one point called the prospect of seeing fellow Latinos vote for Donald Trump “super sad.”
