Ricky Martin denies restraining order allegations

Puerto Rican superstar Ricky Martin on Sunday denied allegations that led to a restraining order against him, with police noting he has not been charged with any crime. Police said Saturday that a judge issued the order against Martin, but authorities trying to enforce the order were unable to find the singer in the Puerto Rican town of Dorado, where he lives. The order was filed under Puerto Rico’s domestic violence law and police spokesman Axel Valencia said he could not provide further details, including who requested the order. arrangement.

Martin said in a tweet that the order is based on “completely false” allegations and that he will face the process “with the responsibility that characterizes me”.

“I appreciate the countless gestures of solidarity and I receive them with all my heart,” he wrote.

He said that since it was an open legal question, he could not comment further.


Representatives for Martin earlier released a statement and described the allegations as “completely false and fabricated.” He did not name the representatives.

“We are very confident that when the true facts are revealed in this case, our client Ricky Martin will be fully vindicated,” they said in a statement shared with The Associated Press.

El Vocero, a newspaper in Puerto Rico, said the order states that Martin and the other person dated for seven months. The report cites the order as saying they broke up two months ago, but the petitioner says Martin did not accept the separation and was seen hanging out near the petitioner’s house at least three times.

“The petitioner fears for his safety,” El Vocero said citing the order.

AP did not obtain a copy of the order.
