Singer Ricky Martin asked the San Juan Court of First Instance this month to dismiss a countersuit filed by his nephew, Dennis Yadiel Sanchez Martin, for “non-consensual sexual conduct.”

The answer submitted to the court maintained that Ricky Martin was “never alone” with his nephew “neither in his car nor at any other place.”

Sanchez Martin’s counterclaim was a response to a civil lawsuit filed by his uncle last September for extortion, malicious harassment, abuse of rights, damages.
The legal dispute between the singer and his nephew began in July 2022, when Sanchez Martin was granted a protection order against his uncle, which was later archived.
Subsequently, the justice granted Enrique Martin Morales, the singer’s maiden name, a protection order to pursue his nephew, which was extended last November for a year.
