It sounds like someone has been livin’ la vida loca. There are new reports that say a Puerto Rican judge has issued a restraining order against singer Ricky Martin. Here’s what you need to know.
Apparently, the order was signed on Friday, and authorities visited an upscale neighborhood in the north coastal town of Dorado where Martin lives to try to serve the order, police spokesman Axel Valencia told the press. “Up until now, police haven’t been able to find him,” Valencia said.
Ricky Martin Hit With A Restraining Order In Puerto Rico
It was not immediately known who requested the restraining order. Valencia said he could not provide further details because the order was filed under Puerto Rico’s domestic violence law. El Vocero, a Puerto Rico newspaper, said the order states that Martin and the other party dated for seven months.
The report quotes the order as saying they broke up two months ago, but the petitioner says Martin did not accept the separation and has been seen loitering near the petitioner’s house at least three times. “The petitioner fears for his safety,” El Vocero quoted the order as saying.
Valencia said that the order prohibits Martin from contacting or calling the person who filed it and that a judge will later determine at a hearing whether the order should remain in place or be lifted. He added that usually orders are implemented for at least a month.
Martin is denying all the claims made against him. “The allegations against Ricky Martin that lead to a protection order are completely false and fabricated,” representatives for Martin told the press. “We are very confident that when the true facts come out in this matter our client Ricky Martin will be fully vindicated.”
The news comes after his ex-manager Rebecca Drucker sued the “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer for more than $3 million in unpaid commissions.
