Ricky Martin is speaking out and denying allegations of domestic abuse leveled against him in order to file a restraining order against the Latin pop star.

Puerto Rican singer was hit with a restraining order from an alleged ex in Puerto Rico, according to law enforcement on Saturday.

A representative for Martin, 50, called the abuse allegations ‘completely false and fabricated’ in a statement provided to People later in the day.

The protective order was signed on Friday, after authorities visited Martin’s neighborhood in the north coastal town of Dorado to try to serve him, police spokesman Axel Valencia told The Associated Press.

‘Up until now, police haven’t been able to find him,’ Valencia said. 

Martin’s team has subsequently denied the allegations made to received the protective order. 

‘The allegations against Ricky Martin that led to a protection order are completely false and fabricated,’ a representative for the singer said in a statement on Saturday. ‘We are very confident that when the true facts come out in this matter our client Ricky Martin will be fully vindicated.’ 

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 Rican newspaper, claimed 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 their house at least three times.

‘The petitioner fears for his safety,’ El Vocero quoted the order as saying.

The AP has not obtained a copy of the order.

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 orders are usually implemented for at least a month.

Complicated: While the petitioner's identity remains sealed under Puerto Rico's Law 54 statute, which prevent and fight domestic abuse, the alleged victim does not appear to be Martin's husband Jwan Yosef; seen in March 2022

Valencia noted that the person who filed for the restraining order did not contact police, which would have involved prosecutors determining if there was enough evidence to file charges. Rather the request went straight to the court.

While the petitioner’s identity remains sealed under Puerto Rico’s Law 54 statute, which prevents and fights domestic abuse, the alleged victim does not appear to be Martin’s husband Jwan Yosef. 

He and his spouse, who wed in 2017, share 13-year-old twins Valentino and Matteo, as well as Lucia, three and Renn, also three.

In June 2021, Martin talked about his family while shutting down rumors they were expecting another child.

‘I don’t hide anything nowadays. We are not pregnant,’ Martin told People at the time. ‘Right now, we’re dealing with a pair of twins and a pair of Irish twins because Lucia and Renn are only nine months apart. And they’re overwhelming, but we’re strong and healthy.’

Still, he said they wanted ‘more’ kids in the future, and they have ’embryos frozen.’
