L’Ricky Martin case ends as if nothing had happened… except for the singer’s reputation, which took a hit. The restraining order against the artist was lifted this Thursday after a hearing in Puerto Rico, after his nephew, who accused him of incest and violence, decided to withdraw his complaint.
A decision taken after two weeks of ordeal for the interpreter of Livin’ La Vida Locawho Explain not being able to defend himself publicly, as Puerto Rican law prevented him from doing so.
“I’m in front of the cameras today because I really need to talk to start my healing process. I’m glad those claims have been debunked, but I’ll tell you the truth, it was so painful – it was devastating for me, for my family, for my friends. I don’t wish that on anyone, “he said in a video relayed by TMZ.
In the video, Ricky Martin also addresses his accuser, Dennis Yadiel Sanchez, his 21-year-old nephew, who claimed to have filed a complaint after fearing for his safety, when he broke up with the singer after a seven-month (incestuous) relationship. Facts firmly denied by the artist, who today says he is worried about the mental health of the young man.
“To the person who said this nonsense, I wish the best, and I hope that he finds help to be able to start a new life filled with love, truth and joy, and that he does no more hurt anyone. Now my priority is healing…with music. I can’t wait to get back on stage. I can’t wait to be back in front of the cameras and entertaining, which is what I do best,” added Ricky Martin, who is scheduled to perform at the Hollywood Bowl this weekend.
