Since the beginning of July, Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin has been accused of domestic violence but also of incest on the part of his 21-year-old nephew.
According to Spanish outlet Marca, the alleged victim and Ricky Martin had a relationship for seven months. She criticizes in particular the interpreter of the tube Un, dos, tres, Maria of having physically and psychologically abused her throughout their relationship.
Ricky Martin, 50 years old and father of four children, would not have accepted the separation and received a restraining order.
Hearing on July 21
The singer denies these accusations and calls “these allegations” “completely false”. With FoxNews, his lawyers say in particular that the young man suffers from “serious mental problems”.
According to the American media TMZ, the star must appear this Thursday, July 21 in court which will determine whether or not to maintain the restraining order. If the charges of incest are proven on the son of his half-sister, the singer faces nearly 50 years in prison. This is the penalty provided by law in Puerto Rico for incest.
