Singer Ricky Martin has filed a $30 million lawsuit against his own nephew after claiming he had a romantic relationship with his uncle.
Dennis Yadiel Sánchez filed a domestic violence complaint against the 50-year-old after he alleged that he threatened violence after Sánchez ended their “relationship ” which he claims lasted seven months.
On July 21, the judge lifted this protection order and Martin’s legal team said the claim:
“was never anything more than a troubled individual making false allegations with absolutely nothing to substantiate them.”
The ‘livin’ la vida loca’ singer has denied all allegations held against him.
Sánchez allegedly made several attempts to gain his relatives attention – by asking the singer to follow him on social media, which he denied to do. Also by asking if he could take Martin’s kids to the movie theater for a day out, which Martin also did not allow.
Dennis Yadiel Sánchez then proceeded to post the singers phone number online as “as an act of retaliation for the silence and lack of attention”.
