Ricky Martin has not had any type of sexual or romantic contact with his nephew, according to his lawyer, as his client confronts domestic abuse charges from the youngest family member in Puerto Rico.
Martin has faced a temporary restraining order in recent weeks, as well as more allegations of violence and more in the aftermath of a rumored seven-month personal affair with his 21-year-old nephew. A hearing on the allegations has been scheduled for July 21 in Puerto Rico. If Martin is found guilty of the felony of domestic violence with a relative, he could face a roughly 50-year term.

Martin and his Lavely & Singer attorneys have remained mainly silent on the topic since Drucker filed her case in Los Angeles Superior Court on June 29. Martin’s attorney, Marty Singer told, unfortunately, the person who made this accusation is battling with serious mental health difficulties.
