General Hospital Alum Ricky Martin Denies Having A Romantic Relationship With His Nephew
According to new reports, Ricky’s attorney, Marty Singer, went on the record to deny the allegations that have been made by the singer’s nephew. He said, “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 idea is not only untrue, it is disgusting,” he continued. “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.”
Earlier in the month, Ricky was hit with a temporary restraining order after his nephew claimed that he was being emotionally abusive and physically violent after the fallout of their seven- month intimate affair. So far a hearing has been set for July 21. Should Ricky be found guilty of the charges that have been brought against him, he faces 50 years behind bars.
So far Ricky himself has not made any comments about the matter. He is currently filming a new movie for Apple TV+ called “Mes. American Pie” starring Carol Burnett, Kristen Wiig, Josh Lucas, Allison Janney and Leslie Bibb. Ricky was spotted on the set of the film in Los Angeles, but he is expected to travel back to Puerto Rico in the coming days.
