Ricky Martin Wins In Court After Nephew Withdraws Allegations Of Harassment And Incest

Ricky Martin Wins In Court After Nephew Withdraws Allegations Of Harassment And Incest

He is now clear of all accusations related to his nephew's claims since the truth has indeed come to light.

Ricky Martin was questioned over his 21-year-old nephew’s claims of incest and domestic abuse at his virtual court appearance on Thursday. However, the case was ultimately dismissed, and the restraining order that had been placed against him has been revoked.

The Latin pop singer’s legal team said in a statement provided to TMZ, “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 request came from the accuser asking to dismiss the case. This was never anything more than a troubled individual making false allegations with absolutely nothing to substantiate them,” his legal team added. “We are glad that our client saw justice done and can now move forward with his life and his career.”

Following the decision on Thursday, Martin also issued a statement in which he thanked his supporters and referred to the charges as terrible, saying, “I have been working on stages for almost four decades, in the public eye and I have never, ever had to deal with something as painful as what I have experienced in the last two weeks.”

“I was a victim of a lie. Unfortunately, the attack came from a family member who is sadly dealing with mental issues. The only thing I wish him is the best and that he finds the light.”

“Lies cause a lot of damage. It did a lot of damage to me, to my children, to my husband, to my parents, to my whole family. I couldn’t defend myself before because there is a process that I had to follow, where I was required to remain silent until I could speak out in front of a judge and that’s how it went,” he added.

“Thank you very much to all the unconditional fans who always sent me messages of love, positive messages. I insist, there is a God who rewards those who focus and live in the truth.”

Despite winning this case, Martin is still facing another case pending against him after his former manager served him with a $3 million lawsuit just lately.

Glad I didn’t jump to judgment when this story broke. We are living in WILD times btwn social media AND “journalists” who compete for views/followers and no longer appear to value integrity/accuracy in reporting. Unless they clean it up, it will be the destruction of us all.
