According to reports, Ricky Martin could face up to 50 years in prison if he is convicted of incest.

The singer was hit with a restraining order stemming from a domestic violence incident in Puerto Rico.

Eric Martin identified the alleged victim as the singer’s nephew, according to a Spanish news outlet.




During their seven-month relationship, Martin is accused of executing physical and psychological attacks on Sanchez.

In a statement provided to People earlier this month, a representative for the married father of four called the abuse allegations completely false and fabricated.

The legal rep for Martin denied to DailyMail.

Martin’s legal team told DailyMail.com the informer is ‘battling with profound emotional well-being difficulties’ and through and through excused the ‘revolting’ charges.

‘Ricky Martin has, of course, never been – and would never be – involved in any kind of sexual or romantic relationship with his nephew,’ lawyer Martin Singer said Friday.

‘The idea is not only untrue, but it is also disgusting. 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.’

The star is expected in Puerto Rican court on July 21 for his trial, after he was spotted in Los Angeles Friday on the set of his new AppleTV+ miniseries.

The singer’s accuser filed a restraining order against him on July 1 under Puerto Rico’s domestic violence law.

Martin was not allowed to call or contact the person who was afraid for his safety.

The order was reviewed by El Vocero, a Puerto Rican newspaper, and it states that Martin and Sanchez broke up after seven months of dating.

According to the order reviewed by El Vocero, Martin was seen loitering near his house at least three times.

He said Martin had been consuming large amounts of alcohol and drugs.

The singer’s attorneys have denied the allegations and are preparing their defense against the man, who was accused of threatening to destroy her life.

Eric Martin told The Latin Post that his nephew suffers from mental problems and that he is very sure that his young relative was not telling the truth.

A delegate for Martin likewise affirmed to DailyMail.com late Friday night that his informer is a biological family member, questioning starting reports the nephew was the offspring of a step-sibling.

The protective order was signed on July 1 after authorities visited Martin’s neighborhood in the north coastal town of Dorado to try to serve him.

The person who filed for the restraining order didn’t contact the police, which would have required prosecutors to determine if there was enough evidence to file charges. The request was sent to the court.

Puerto Rican law takes allegations of incest very seriously. If the singer is found guilty of incest, he could face up to 50 years in prison.

Martin addressed the accusations on Twitter on July 3, saying: ‘The protection order entered against me is based on completely false allegations, so I will respond through the judicial process with the facts and the dignity that characterize me.

‘Because it is an ongoing legal matter, I cannot make detailed statements at this time. I am grateful for the countless messages of solidarity, and I receive them with all my heart.’

He didn’t make any more statements about the accusations.

Jwan Yosef is a Swedish painter who has been married to Martin.

The couple has four children. Lucia Martin-Yosef, Valentino Martin, Matteo Martin, and Renn Martin-Yosef

In June 2021, Martin talked about his family and denied rumors they were expecting another child.

‘I don’t hide anything nowadays. We are not pregnant,’ Martin told People at the time. ‘Right now, we’re dealing with a pair of twins and a pair of Irish twins because Lucia and Renn are only nine months apart. And they’re overwhelming, but we’re strong and healthy.’

He said they want more kids in the future, and they have embryos frozen.

Matteo and his twin brother were welcomed by Martin. Gestational surrogacy was used to give birth to the former Menudo member’s eldest children.

The singer said he had considered adoption but chose to work with a surrogate.

In 2016, he began a relationship with Yosef, his husband, and the twins’ second father. The couple got married shortly after they got engaged.

The happy couple welcomed a daughter named Lucia in December of last year.

The singer revealed that he and his husband were going to have another child in September of 2019. Martin and Yosef had a son named Renn.

During an interview with Out, the performer talked about his fear of not being able to have a family due to his sexuality prior to his coming out.

‘Many years I dreamt of being a father, and many, many, many times I went through this grieving process of I am gay, I am a closeted gay man, and I’m not going to be able to be a daddy,’ he said.

He pointed out that although he supported the idea of adoption, he was aware of the difficulties that many of them faced.

‘Obviously adoption is an option and it’s very beautiful, but unfortunately for gay men, it’s very difficult to adopt in some countries,’ he said.

Martin was hit with a restraining order just days after his ex-business manager announced she was suing him for shorting her $3 million for the services she provided.

She said she worked for the entertainer for a few years.

According to court documents, Martin refused to pay Rebecca the millions of dollars in commissions that he owes her.

The San Juan, Puerto Rico native contacted Drucker in May of 2020 during a time when his personal and professional life was in turmoil, and she effectively got his career back on track.
