Ricky Martin He denied all allegations of domestic violence restraint against him in Puerto Rico over the weekend.
The denial of ‘Livin’ singer La Vida Loca came after local police announced on Saturday that a restraining order against domestic violence had been lifted against him.
The complaint was filed under Law 54, also known as the Domestic Violence Prevention and Intervention Act. The Associated Press reported that the police were not able until Friday to issue the order against the singer, because they did not reach him at that time.
“We confirm that the Puerto Rican Police is in the process of filing a protection order, under Law 54, against Mr. Enrique Martin,” the police said in a statement.
Police spokesman Axel Valencia told the Associated Press that the order prevented Martin from contacting the complainant and that a judge would later decide whether the order should remain in place. The applicant has not been named.
Martin’s representatives told People magazine that “the allegations against Ricky Martin that led to the issuance of a protection order are completely false and fabricated.” “We are absolutely confident that when the real facts in this matter emerge, our client Ricky Martin will be fully exonerated.”
It’s been a turbulent week for the star, who is sometimes called the “King of Latin Pop.” His ex-manager Rebecca Drucker sues him for $3 million in unpaid commissions. Drucker ran Martin over two separate time periods, 2014 to 2018 and later from 2020 to 2022. Her lawyers have sometimes submitted a harsh 15-page document to support her claim, adding: “With Rebecca by his side, Martin made millions of dollars and thus owed Rebecca significant commissions.” .
