The Puerto Rico Police confirmed this Saturday that they are in the process of managing a restraining order against the artist for a complaint under Law 54, which protects victims of harassment or abuse on the Caribbean island. Some allegations that have already been answered by his legal team, which has described them as “completely false”.

The order was issued by Judge Raiza Cajigas Campbell, of the Court of First Instance of San Juan, following a request from someone whose identity has not been revealed as it is a case under the Law for the Prevention and Intervention with Domestic Violence. , according to the statement issued by the police to which EFE has had access. The order was signed last Friday, and authorities visited an upscale neighborhood in Dorado, a city on the island’s north coast where the singer lives, to try to enforce the order, police spokesman Axel said. Valencia, to the Associated Press agency. “At the moment, the police have not been able to find him,” Valencia said.

Enrique Martín Morales, better known as Ricky Martin, has been married since 2017 to the Swedish artist of Syrian origin Jwan Josef, with whom he has four children for surrogacy: the twins Valentino and Matteo, Lucia and Renn. This other complaint comes in the same week in which the artist is facing a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles (USA) by his former manager Rebecca Drucker, who worked with the singer between 2014 and 2022, for which he demands payment of 2.9 million euros in unpaid commissions. At the moment, the artist is silent on these two matters, and also stays away from his social networks, where he has not posted a single message for six days.

The artist always exploited the masculine side in his career, surrounding himself with women and nurturing the erotic side in his public appearances. Until 2010, when he decided that the time had come to tell the truth. “No more secrets,” he said, and came out of the closet. Nothing changed, except that now hearts were breaking between the men. Since then he has maintained an active role in the vindication of LGTBI rights and has spoken out when politics intervened in these matters. He did it against Donald Trump, for example: “I am a Latino man, homosexual, married to an Arab man, living in the United States. In other words, I am a threat to these people, wherever you look at it,” he declared in June 2020. He also took a position on the therapies to which some homosexuals are subjected: “They are a type of torture, and torture is not has a place in a democratic, progressive and humane society”.

It was not his only political intervention. In addition to his public support for Joe Biden, the singer spoke out in favor of the riots that devastated Chile in 2020: “Let them express themselves. That they demand the basics, human rights. I am with you Chile, in Chile and outside of Chile, never silent. Always with love and peace, but never silent. He also added: “I am not going to preach, I am not going to tell anyone what to do and what not to do, I simply serve as an example and share what works for me.”

That example may now be in question. The police are looking for him to exercise the restraining order that has been requested by a now anonymous complainant for domestic violence.
