After allegations of incest: Ricky Martin is suing his nephew

Ricky Martin's nephew recently publicly accused the singer of incest, but the 21-year-old soon retracted the allegations. Martin is now responding with a lawsuit. He is demanding $20 million in damages for damage to his reputation.

Pop star Ricky Martin is suing his nephew Dennis Yadiel Sanchez in his native Puerto Rico. He had previously accused the singer of sexual abuse and incest, only to ask the court itself to drop the case. Martin is now seeking $20 million in damages as the untrue allegations have damaged his reputation. This is reported by the US industry magazine "Deadline".

The lawsuit says the "irresponsible, malicious and criminal acts" of the singer's "misbehaving" 21-year-old nephew damaged Martin's "pristine reputation, which he has achieved through his long artistic and altruistic career over the past nearly 40 years years of his life".

As "Entertainment Weekly" also reports, the lawsuit also states that before the allegations, Sánchez publicly boasted that he was related to 50-year-old Martin, bombarded him with messages on Whatsapp and Instagram and, on one occasion, his private cell phone number posted on a social network.

Until the proceedings were dropped around nine weeks ago, Ricky Martin had vehemently denied the allegations of having been in a sexual relationship with his relative. The US celebrity portal "TMZ" published a video at the time in which the musician spoke of a "painful" experience and explained: "It was devastating for me, for my family, for my friends. I don't wish that on anyone."
