Martin, real name Enrique José Martin Morales, then proceeded to call the petitioner frequently and was also seen loitering near his residence at least three times, the newspaper quoted the document as saying. The petitioner “fears for his safety,” the document alleges, per El Vocero.
A hearing has been scheduled for July 21.
After the restraining order was filed, Martin’s lawyer said in a statement, “The allegations against Ricky Martin that lead to a protection order are completely false and fabricated. We are very confident that when the true facts come out in this matter our client Ricky Martin will be fully vindicated.”
In addition, Martin himself posted on social media at the time, “The protection order entered against me is based on completely false allegations, so I will respond through the judicial process with the facts and the dignity that characterize me. Because it is an ongoing legal matter, I cannot make detailed statements at this time. I am grateful for the countless messages of solidarity, and I receive them with all my heart.”
