Ricky Martin is 'accused of incest by his nephew'

Ricky Martin is accused of incest by his nephew who claimed they had a sexual relationship for seven months and he ‘attacked him physically and psychologically’: Singer could face up to 50 years in prison

Ricky Martin has been accused of incest by his 21-year-old nephew and could face up to 50 years in prison if convicted, reports indicate.

The singer was hit with a restraining order stemming from a domestic violence incident in Puerto Rico earlier this month, however the victim’s identity had been withheld. 

His brother, Eric Martin, has since identified the alleged victim as the singer’s nephew, Dennis Yadiel Sanchez, Spanish news outlet Marca reported. 

Martin is accused of ‘exercising physical and psychological attacks’ on Sanchez during their seven month relationship, which ended about two months ago. 

A representative for Martin, 50, previously called the abuse allegations ‘completely false and fabricated’ in a statement provided to People earlier this month.

The star is expected in Puerto Rican court on July 21 for his trial.

Martin’s accuser, believed to be Sanchez, filed a restraining order against the singer on July 1 under Puerto Rico’s domestic violence law.

The order states that Martin and the other party dated for seven months, El Vocero, a Puerto Rican newspaper, reported shortly after the order was filed.

The report quotes the order as saying they broke up two months ago, but the petitioner says Martin did not accept the separation and has been seen loitering near their house at least three times.

The order prohibited Martin from contacting or calling the petitioner who allegedly ‘fears for his safety.’

The singer’s attorneys are reportedly preparing their defense against Sanchez and told Marca the 21-year-old had recently been denounced by a woman after he allegedly harassed her and ‘threatened to destroy her life.’
