It looks like this nightmarish situation is now over. There are new reports that say a judge in Puerto Rico has lifted a restraining order against singer and actor Ricky Martin at the request of the man who earlier this month had alleged that the star had harassed him, a lawyer representing Martin said last week. Here’s what you need to know.
The man had alleged in a domestic violence complaint that he feared for his safety because Martin had allegedly refused to accept his decision to end a romantic relationship, had continued calling him and had loitered outside his home. The man’s attorney opened the virtual hearing by requesting that Judge Raiza Cajigas close the case, Martin’s lawyer, Joaquín Monserrate, said in a telephone interview.

“The judge asked the pertinent questions – if anyone had threatened him, if anyone had offered him anything in exchange – and (his lawyer) said no, that it was a voluntary decision,” Monserrate said.
Reuters was unable to obtain comment from the attorney for the man, whose name has not been released in accordance with domestic violence regulations. Martin, who rose to fame in the 1990s on hits like Livin’ La Vida Loca, has denied all of the allegations 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.
