A restraining order has been filed against Ricky Martin in Puerto Rico, stating: People reporting that an unidentified person has accused him of domestic violence and has applied to the court to grant the protection order. The prosecution initially did not go to the police, but the Puerto Rico police are involved in trying to serve the restraining order against Martin, which they apparently were unable to do because they “failed to find him” (according to a statement from the police, via People†
Other than that, not many details are available, but representatives for Martin sent a statement to: People denies the allegations, calling them “completely false and fabricated”. The statement added: “We are confident that if the real facts in this case come out, our client Ricky Martin will be fully vindicated.”
As it stands, Martin is not allowed to contact the person who made the complaint, and People explains that “a judge will later decide whether the injunction should remain in effect.”
People also points out that this is coming shortly after Ricky Martin’s former manager Rebecca Drucker sued the singer for more than $3 million, saying that Martin — over two time periods, 2014-2018 and 2020-2022 — “made millions of dollars” without paying Drucker the commissions she owed. The lawsuit also alleges that Drucker helped Martin through a “potentially career-ending allegation,” from which he came out “unscathed” because of her. It also states that Martin “promoted a toxic work environment” accusing him of threatening her and trying to “force her” to sign a nondisclosure agreement.
Also just foro be clear: there is no indication from the report about People that the two situations have something to do with each other, only that they occur within a few days of each other.
