Ricky Martin denies any kind of romantic relationship with the grandson, even after the new data emerged in the case of Domestic violence which earlier this month led to a restraining order in Puerto Rico.
According to local media investigations, which found out more about the anonymous tip, the 21-year-old nephew claimed to have been dating his successful artist uncle for seven months. The accuser assures in her complaint that she cut herself two months ago, but that Ricky Martin did not accept the end of the relationship and approached the perimeter of her home at least three times.

“Of course Ricky Martin never had and never would have had a sexual or romantic relationship with his nephew,” attorney Marty Singer told Billboard magazine. “The accusation is not only false but disgusting. We need urgent treatment, but above all we hope that this horrible case will be closed by a judge as soon as he has examined the facts.
