The newspaper ‘El Vocero‘ publishes that in the order against Ricky Martin it is contemplated that the victim maintained a relationship with him, which would have been broken approximately two months ago. The information from the aforementioned media ensures that the singer “would not have accepted said separation“.
In addition, they also publish that “the petitioner fears for his safety” due to the artist’s frequent calls and that he even prowled around the victim’s residence on at least three occasions. Ricky Martin’s legal team has come out in defense of the artist after the strong media commotion:
“The allegations against Ricky Martin, which lead to a protection order, are completely false“, says the statement released through social networks.
“We are confident that when the true facts come to light in this matter, our client Ricky Martin will be fully vindicated“, they add.
