Ricky Martin has sued his nephew over an extortion lawsuit
Ricky Martin is taking legal action against his nephew, Dennis Yadiel Sanchez, who filed the lawsuit in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Wednesday.
Martin filed a $20 million lawsuit, accusing his nephew of racketeering, malicious prosecution, abuse of rights and damages.
In court documents, the Latin pop icon claimed his nephew was trying to ‘murder’ his reputation.
The document read: “Defendant Sanchez filed for a protective order based on malice and hostility toward Plaintiff. If only because he didn’t reply to his numerous messages.’
He further stated that Sanchez “threatened and blackmailed the plaintiff that if he was not financially compensated, he would continue his campaign to assassinate his reputation and integrity through false and malicious imputations.”
Additionally, Martin’s filing further alleged that Sanchez leaked the 50-year-old singer’s phone number on social media. It added that Sanchez also created an Instagram account for one of his children.
Martin is the father of four children that he shares with his husband Jwan Yosef. Twins Matteo and Valentino are 13 years old, daughter Lucia is 3 years old, and son Renno is 2 years old.
The lawsuit also mentioned that Martin lost several multi-million dollar contracts because of Sanchez’s claims.
Nephew accused Ricky Martin of sexual abuse
The drama between Ricky Martin and his 21-year-old nephew first started this July.
Dennis Yadiel Sanchez accused the singer of incest. He further claimed that he was subjected to domestic violence at the hands of Martin. A judge therefore ordered a restraining order against the “Livin’ La Vida Loca” artist.
In addition, Sanchez claimed that Martin harassed him for months after their breakup.
Regardless, on July 21, Sanchez requested permission to withdraw the case through his attorney.
However, after his release, Martin shared a video on social media to address the news.
He said in the clip: “It was so painful. It was devastating for me, for my family, for my friends and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.’
He went on to say, “I wish whoever claimed this nonsense the best and find help to start a new life full of love, truth and joy and not hurt anyone else. .’
