Ricky Martin Sues Nephew For $30 Million Over Incest Claims

Posted September 8, 2022 by with 3 comments

Ricky Martin is obviously doing this to preserve whatever reputation he has left, and to presumably further prove his innocence against the incest claims, because even if he wins his suit, there’s no way the supposedly crazy nephew has $30 million dollars. Via CNN:

Attorneys for Ricky Martin on Wednesday filed a civil lawsuit in a San Juan, Puerto Rico court against his nephew Dennis Yadiel Sánchez, alleging extortion, malicious persecution, abuse of rights, and damages.

Martin’s lawsuit follows a July legal battle in which a judge in San Juan issued a protection order in favor of the entertainer’s nephew after he denounced him for harassment, a claim Martin has refuted and rejected.

During a hearing on July 21, a judge decided not to extend the temporary protection order against Martin, because his nephew asked to dismiss the case.

In the lawsuit filed Wednesday, Martin requested financial compensation for a total of at least $30 million, alleging that Sánchez’s actions caused “million-dollar contracts and present and future artistic projects” to be canceled.
