Did Ricky Martin’s nephew accuse the singer of domestic violence?
A Puerto Rican tabloid has sparked a debate on Twitter after claiming that Ricky Martin’s nephew is the one who slapped the singer with a restraining order. As a reminder, the identity of the petitioner is always secret. The Grammy-winning crooner’s loyal fans came to his rescue, completely disgusted that he was in a relationship with his nephew.
According Complex, Puerto Rican newspaper El Vocero obtained a copy of the order, which alleged that Ricky Martin had not accepted the breakup and had spent the past two months harassing the petitioner. The order stated:[Martin] calls him frequently. Moreover, the petitioner has seen him hanging around his residence on at least three occasions. The petitioner fears for his safety that the petitioner has demonstrated that there is a substantial possibility of an immediate risk of abuse. It was reported that the petitioner initially did not file a complaint against the police and instead approached the court on his own to seek a protective order.
