The restraining order against Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin had been dismissed which was previously issued. The 50-year-old singer is one of the most influential artists in the world, who’s popularly known for his music like Livin’ la Vida Loca, La Copa de la Vida, She Bangs, Nobody Wants to Be Lonely, Tal Vez, among many others.
He was recently in the headlines due to the allegations reportedly filed by his 21-year-old nephew, Dennis Yadiel Sanchez, for exercising physical and psychological abuse. Around two weeks ago, it was revealed that a judge in Puerto Rico has issued a “Domestic Abuse Prevention and Intervention Act” under Law 54 restraining order against the singer. These allegations if found true could sentence the singer up to 50 years in prison. However, recent reports have shared that the Latin Pop icon’s restraining order has been dismissed.
Ricky Martin’s Nephew Withdraws The Restraining Order
According to reports obtained by PEOPLE, Martin’s nephew has withdrawn the restraining order in a Puerto Rican court on Thursday. According to the singer’s attorney, his nephew decided to withdraw the case without any ‘pressure’ from someone.
“Just as we had anticipated, the temporary protection order was not extended by the Court. The accuser confirmed to the court that his decision to dismiss the matter was his alone, without any outside influence or pressure, and the accuser confirmed he was satisfied with his legal representation in the matter,” the statement read. “The request came from the accuser asking to dismiss the case.”
The representative also shared that his nephew had made ‘false’ accusations about the singer, “This was never anything more than a troubled individual making false allegations with absolutely nothing to substantiate them. We are glad that our client saw justice done and can now move forward with his life and his career.”
Internet Convinced That Ricky Martin Paid Off His Nephew
Though the singer’s nephew has withdrawn the case, many people took to Twitter to share what they think might have actually happened. One user wrote on Twitter that the singer may have paid his nephew to withdraw the charges.
