Ricky Martin Broke His Silence On The “Painful” Incest Allegations Made By His Nephew After The Case Was Dismissed

Published

“Thank god these claims were proven to be false.”

Last week, TMZ reported that Ricky Martin faced 50 years in prison after incest and domestic violence claims were made against him.

On July 1, the 50-year-old star was served a temporary restraining order from a person who Martin allegedly dated for seven months, but their identity remained anonymous.

Puerto Rican news website El Vocero reported: “The parties were related for seven months. They separated two months ago, but [Ricky] does not accept the separation.”

“[Ricky] calls him frequently. In addition, the petitioner has seen him hanging around his residence on at least three occasions. The petitioner fears for his safety,” the report went on.

Martin’s brother later identified the petitioner as being Ricky’s 21-year-old nephew, Dennis Yadiel Sanchez, who said that he’d had a sexual relationship with his uncle, who had become abusive after the romance ended around eight weeks ago.

Sanchez is the son of Martin’s half-sister, Vanessa, and Martin vehemently denied the allegations via his lawyer, Marty Singer, at the time.

“Ricky Martin has, of course, never been — and would never be — involved in any kind of sexual or romantic relationship with his nephew,” Singer said in a statement to Variety. “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.”

The allegations went to court on Thursday, but the case was dismissed after Sanchez dropped the claims against his uncle.

In a statement that was released after the case was thrown out, Martin’s attorneys maintained that Sanchez had made the allegations up because he is a “troubled individual.”

“Just as we had anticipated, the temporary protection order was not extended by the court,” the statement began.

“The accuser confirmed to the court that his decision to dismiss the matter was his alone, without any outside influence or pressure, and the accuser confirmed he was satisfied with his legal representation in the matter,” it went on.

“The request came from the accuser asking to dismiss the case. This was never anything more than a troubled individual making false allegations with absolutely nothing to substantiate them,” it concluded. “We are glad that our client saw justice down and can now move forward with his life and his career.”

Martin shared a screenshot of the statement to his Instagram page alongside the caption, “Truth prevails.”

His legal team had previously told the Daily Mail that Sanchez was “was struggling with deep mental health challenges.”

Martin also broke his silence on the case, with legal obligations previously leaving him unable to speak publicly about the allegations.

In a video that was published by TMZ, Martin said that he needed to talk so that he could start his “healing process.”

“For two weeks, I was not allowed to defend myself because I was following procedure where the law obligated me not to talk until I was in front of a judge,” he explained. “Thank god these claims were proven to be false.”

“It has been so painful, it has been devastating for me, for my family, for my friends. I don’t wish this upon anybody,” Martin continued. “To the person that was claiming this nonsense, I wish you the best. And I wish he finds the help so he can start a new life filled with love and truth and joy and he doesn’t hurt anybody else.”

Martin has been married to artist Jwan Yosef since 2017, and together they share four children: 13-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino, who Martin welcomed via surrogacy in 2008; 3-year-old Lucia; and Renn, also three.

Jwan supported his husband throughout the allegations, and on Thursday, he shared a photo of them together with the same poignant caption: “Truth prevails.”

This Is Kyle Richards’ Chosen Primer for an ‘Overall Glow’

Us Weekly has affiliate partnerships so we may receive compensation for some links to products and services.

If our skin isn’t glowing, we don’t want it! That’s basically been our skincare and makeup motto for the past handful of years. The best glow comes from both prep and glam — not just one or the other. That’s why we especially love illuminating makeup products that nurture our skin as they add on the radiance!

Primers can be great examples, as they’re that meeting point where skincare and makeup come together, going on right after sunscreen and just before foundation. It can be hard to find a good primer that works for you though. That’s why we’re going with Kyle Richards’ pick. We trust her recommendations completely!

Richards has done a handful of Amazon Live videos, and we always go back and reference them over and over again for top-tier, affordable finds. In her February Beauty Haul, featuring her personal makeup bag picks, she included this primer. “It just gives you an overall glow to your face, and it’s a great product,” the Real Housewives star said. We were already convinced, but we still looked into the details to find out just what makes it so great!

This primer is infused with vitamins and botanicals, so it’s designed to act as anti-aging skincare while also helping your makeup stay put. Its star ingredient is daisy extract, which is a beloved ingredient for blocking the formation of dark spots in a natural way. It’s also rich in antioxidants, carries a high concentration of exfoliating acids, encourages skin tissue repair and has antiseptic properties!

Because of the brightening properties of this primer, it can be worn two ways. Either apply a dime-size amount all over your face before makeup, or layer it over makeup as a highlighter, targeting areas like cheekbones and brow bones. There are three shades you can choose from as well to suit your skin tone or preferred style: Glow, Bronze and Rose!

So, what do you say? Shall we start setting up our makeup bags to look a little more like Richards’? We know we’re in!
