On Friday, Eric Martin, Ricky’s brother, asserted in a Facebook Live video that Sanchez ‘suffers from mental issues’.
The elder brother/sister of the Latin singer claimed that the 21-year-old, who is currently estranged from the family, had inflicted damage upon other members of the family.
Despite their troubled nephew, they still had deep affection for his family. He mentioned that even though he was exhausted and quiet, he had been struggling to cope with the deteriorating mental health of the Sanchez family, which he added.
The ‘repugnant’ accusations were completely disregarded and Sanchez is ‘battling with profound mental health difficulties,’ which is what Martin’s legal team informed DailyMail.Com on Friday, echoing Eric’s assertions.
On July 1, the scandalous allegations against the She Bangs vocalist surfaced following Sanchez, the son of Vanessa Martin, the half-sister of the pop singer, submitting a restraining order against his uncle Ricky.
Marca outlet news reported that Eric Sanchez has been identified as the alleged victim in a domestic violence incident in Puerto Rico. The victim’s identity has been withheld in order to protect their privacy.
Ricky Sanchez claimed that he was ‘exercising’ psychological and physical attacks on him during their alleged relationship, which ended about two months ago, says he.
The vocalist has refuted the allegations.
Singer Martin stated on Friday that he would never be involved in any kind of romantic or sexual relationship with his nephew and, of course, Ricky Martin has never been involved either.
It is only not the idea that is untrue, but it is also disgusting. We all hope that this man gets the help he urgently needs. As a judge, we need to look at the facts and soon dismiss this awful case.
A representative for the father, who got married four months earlier, called the allegations of abuse “completely fabricated and false” in a previously provided statement.
The star is anticipated to face his trial in a Puerto Rican court on July 21, after being seen in Los Angeles on Friday while filming his new miniseries for AppleTV+.
Sanchez submitted a restraining order against the vocalist on July 1 according to Puerto Rico’s law on domestic violence.
The injunction prevented Martin from communicating or phoning the complainant who purportedly ‘felt anxious about his well-being.’
According to the order examined by El Vocero, a Puerto Rican newspaper, Martin and Sanchez ended their relationship two months ago after being together for seven months.
Sanchez asserted that Martin did not consent to the separation and had been loitering near his nephew’s house on at least three occasions.
Sanchez also claimed that Martin had been ‘ingesting substantial quantities of alcohol and narcotics.’
The police spokesperson, Axel Valencia, previously informed The Associated Press that he attempted to serve the protective order signed on July 1st in Martin’s neighborhood, located in the coastal town of Dorado in the north.
Valencia noted that if there was enough evidence to determine, prosecutors involved would have gone straight to court to file the charges, without contacting the person who filed the restraining order.
‘The petitioner is concerned about his well-being,’ El Vocero quoted the order as stating.
Whether the order should continue to be in effect or be revoked will be decided by a judge during a later hearing. Additionally, the judge mentioned that orders typically stay in effect for a minimum of one month. Valencia stated that the order specifically forbids Martin from contacting or phoning the individual who initiated it.
Accusations of incest are taken very seriously under Puerto Rican law. In the event of a conviction, the singer could face a possible sentence of up to 50 years in prison.
Martin addressed the accusations on Twitter on July 3, stating that the restraining order filed against him is grounded on entirely unfounded claims; thus, he intends to counter them by presenting the truth and maintaining his integrity within the legal system.
I cannot make detailed statements about this at the moment, as it is an ongoing legal matter. I am grateful for the countless messages of solidarity and I receive them all with my heart. Output: Because it is an ongoing legal matter, I am unable to provide detailed statements about this at the moment. I am thankful for the numerous messages of solidarity I have received and I appreciate them all sincerely.
He has not provided any further statements concerning the allegations.
Martin has been wedded to Jwan Yosef, a Swedish painter of Syrian origin, since 2017.
The pair has four kids: thirteen-year-old twins, Valentino and Matteo, as well as Lucia, three, and Renn, also three.
In June 2021, Martin discussed his family while dispelling rumors that they were anticipating the arrival of another child.
At that moment, Martin expressed to People, “Presently, I don’t conceal anything. We are not expecting a baby.” “Currently, we’re managing with a set of twins and a set of Irish twins since Lucia and Renn are merely nine months apart,” he conveyed. “Furthermore, they’re quite challenging, but we have the resilience and good physical condition.”
However, he mentioned that they desired ‘additional’ children in the coming years, and they possess ‘frozen embryos.’
In 2008, Martin welcomed Matteo and his indistinguishable twin brother Valentino. The oldest children of Martin’s former Menudo bandmate were born via gestational surrogacy.
At that moment, the vocalist mentioned that he had contemplated adoption, although he opted to collaborate with a surrogate.
Soon after, the pair got married and became engaged in that very year. In 2016, he initiated a romance with Yosef, his current spouse, and the twins’ other father.
The joyful pair declared that they had greeted a baby girl named Lucia in December 2018.
In September 2019, the vocalist proceeded to disclose that he and his spouse were interested in expanding their family. The subsequent month, Martin and Yosef, both 37, joyfully welcomed a baby boy named Renn.
During an interview, the performer discussed his earlier years and remembered that he had previously been afraid of not being able to start a family because of his sexuality before he came out.
He expressed, ‘I am a closeted gay man, unable to be a daddy. I have gone through this grieving process many, many times, and for many years, I have dreamt of being a father.’
Although he supported the idea of adoption for LGBT+ couples, he pointed out that he was aware of many hardships they faced.
Unfortunately, it is very difficult for gay men to adopt in some countries, but adoption is obviously a very beautiful and viable choice.
Rebecca Drucker, the manager of his former business, announced that she was suing him for shorting her $3 million in services provided. Martin was hit with a restraining order just days after.
According to TMZ, Drucker stated that she initially worked for the performer from 2014 to 2018.
Court documents in the case filed in the Central District Court of Los Angeles, according to Billboard, state that Drucker’s legal team alleges that Martin ‘entirely and deliberately declined to compensate Rebecca the millions of dollars in commissions that he is indebted to her.’
Alleged Drucker, when his professional and personal life were in absolute turmoil, was effectively contacted by Juan, a native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, during May 2020, to discuss his career track and the track on his back.
According to Billboard, the Chart Boxscore Year-End 2021 reported that Enrique Iglesias grossed $19 million on his North American tour last year. He made millions through sponsorships and tour contracts, and Drucker, as his advisor and manager, provided her ‘invaluable services’ in assisting him with recording deals and Martin-related matters, as stated in court documents.
Amid alleged warnings of ‘an unspecified career-ending accusation,’ Drucker additionally claimed she assisted in guiding the vocalist through a potential career dilemma in September of 2020 when she connected him with a competent legal group.
The vocalist of ‘Shake Your Bon-Bon’ ’emerged unscathed and resumed his career revival’ with the help of Drucker, she disclosed to the court.
In April of this year, she stepped down from her position alongside him, and Drucker additionally informed the court that Martin had been untruthful and manipulative in his interactions with her.
She said that Martin had threatened her with a nondisclosure agreement, asking her not to speak about their business together, but she refused.
Drucker, who desires a trial by jury, is seeking $3 million and exemplary damages in her lawsuit against the singer-songwriter.

Besides his thriving entertainment career, Martin has emerged as a champion for LGBTQ rights worldwide.
During a television interview with Barbara Walters on The View in 2000, the singer, who is openly gay, disclosed that he experienced psychological distress when he was urged to publicly acknowledge his sexual orientation just recently.
During an interview in June for the annual Pride issue, Martin stated, ‘I was very afraid that there is a small amount of PTSD.’ I felt violated because I was not prepared to come out, especially when she abruptly asked the question.’
Martin publicly revealed his sexual orientation as homosexual in 2010 through a statement posted on his website.
Martin, at the time, expressed his pride in being a fortunate and blessed gay man by stating, “I am very fortunate to be the person that I am.”
Prior to coming to the decade of his fame, singer La Vida Loca Livin’ had sat down with Walters, now 92, to talk about his life and career at its peak.
However, he was shocked when the renowned interviewer questioned him about his sexual orientation.
Walters inquired, “Are you aware of the rumors regarding your sexual orientation?”
‘Are they painful? How do you manage them?’ She insisted.
That’s the extent of my commentary on the matter. Each person should handle it in their own manner, and that’s all I have to say on the subject. Sexuality is a personal matter that individuals should address according to their own circumstances, and that concludes my statement. Intimacy is the term that encapsulates this concept, as Martin elucidated.
You are quite unclear, as to whether or not you could leave or if I could not say ‘no’ or ‘yes I am gay,’ as many artists have claimed. Could you say or could you stop these rumors, you know? Well, in response, Walters retired and disappeared from TV screens in 2015.
Ricky, you are being named and it is being said that you know because Ricky, when it comes to bringing it up, I’m aware and I want to emphasize that it’s within your power to be in the spotlight.
Martin expressed his gratitude, thanking you so much for giving him the opportunity to express the rumors, not just for the reason I feel.
The Latin star says that he was not ready to openly discuss his sexuality as a result of being put in such a public forum, which caused post-traumatic stress disorder.
