A preliminary injunction was filed against this Rick Martin in accordance with Puerto Rico’s Domestic Violence Act, although the singer has denied the allegations.

“The allegations against Ricky Martin that led to a protective order are completely false and fabricated,” said a representative for the 50-year-old Living La Vida Loca artist The Hollywood Reporter in a statement on Saturday, July 2. “We are very confident that when the true facts of this matter emerge, our client Ricky Martin will be fully vindicated.”

A local judge issued the protection order on Friday, July 1, according to a Saturday report from the Associated Press. The AP noted that the judge made the motion before authorities attempted to serve the order on Martin – whose real name is Enrique Martín Morales – at his home in Dorado, Puerto Rico.

“Until now, the police could not find him,” said a police spokesman Axel Valencia told the outlet on Saturday, noting that under the order, Martin could not contact the complainant. He also explained that the person who filed the order did not contact the police and went through the court.

The motion came after a complaint was filed against the “Falta Amor” cast member under Law 54 of the territory, commonly known as the Domestic Abuse Prevention and Intervention Act. The law was enacted in 1989 to address situations of domestic violence, and under its terms, the alleged victim’s name was not released.

El Vocero, a local Puerto Rican newspaper, had reported that Martin and the alleged victim dated for seven months before splitting earlier this year, something the former Menudo member didn’t accept. “The petitioner fears for his safety,” the newspaper quoted the wording of the order.

Martin came out publicly as gay in March 2010 before eventually marrying his longtime partner Ivan Joseph in 2017.

“It felt incredible [to publicly come out],” the previous one vote Australia the mentor told radio station KIIS FM in May 2014. “I wish I could come out again because that moment felt very blissful. It really feels amazing and then when it happens you realize that all your fears were in your head. The amount of support I received… from the media, [and] Of course, my fans and my family were great. Unfortunately, society simply pushes us to believe that our feelings are evil.”

While Martin and the 37-year-old concept artist have yet to publicly address their relationship status despite Friday’s allegations, the two share four children: twins Valentino and Matteo, both 14, Lucia, 3, and Renn, 2.

“My husband Jwan, I love you, my beautiful twins Valentino and Matteo, they are here too, I love you with all my heart,” the musician previously gushed about his family during a speech at the National Human Rights Campaign Dinner in November 2019, before the birth from son Renn. “You are my strength, you inspire me every day, you motivate me to keep doing what I do and you are great kids. You are incredible. I love you. … I love big families.”
