Ricky Martin has been accused of domestic violence in Puerto Rico — although it appears the alleged victim may be someone other than his spouse … this per several reports.
Multiple Spanish outlets that operate in PR — including Telemundo — reported Saturday that a protective order is in the process of being filed and executed against the pop star in a municipality near San Juan … citing law enforcement who confirmed the complaint falls within their Law 54 statute, which deals with DV.
The reports state an anonymous person — who goes unnamed — recently appeared before a judge in their own right to seek the TRO without going to the police first and without Ricky being present … and the order was apparently granted based on evidence presented .
The court reportedly scheduled a hearing on the matter between both parties for July 21.
Some reports are saying the alleged others victim is a male, while suggesting it’s a female. One outletclaiming to have seen the docs themselves, says they read in part … “The parties were related for 7 months. They separated 2 months ago, but the petitioner does not accept the separation. He calls him frequently. petitioner has seen him hanging around his residence on at least 3 occasions. The petitioner fears for his safety.”
That certainly doesn’t sound like Ricky’s husband of 5 years, Jwan Yosef — with whom Ricky shares four children. The purported order goes on to reportedly say this … “the petitioning party demonstrated that there is a possibility of immediate risk of abuse.”
As a result of the order reportedly being granted, Ricky has to steer clear of this person — including avoiding all communication — until this can get cleared up before a judge. As of Saturday, cops in Puerto Rico told AP they had not located Ricky to serve him.
Of course, Ricky has several residences … including property in Puerto Rico. It’s interesting this is surfacing now — days after he was sued by his ex-manager, who claimed to have knowledge of a “career-ending allegation” from which she says she helped shield him.
Neither Ricky nor Jwan have commented on the reports. We’ve reached out to Ricky’s reps and attorneys, so far no word back.
