Do Ricky Martin’s siblings support him in the midst of his current scandal?
Ricky’s brother Eric has been very open about his opinion on the scandal. Per TMZ, Eric said on an Instagram live stream in July 2022 that Ricky’s nephew was a “deeply troubled guy.” He went on to say that he didn’t believe Ricky’s nephew was telling the truth since the facts weren’t thoroughly vetted yet. He also talked about wanting to remain on the side of justice and truth while reiterating that the allegations against Ricky were totally incredulous.
According to Page Six, Ricky’s lawyer released a statement in July 2022 after the accusations emerged. He said, “Unfortunately, the person who made this claim is struggling with deep mental health challenges. Ricky Martin has, of course, never been — and would never be — involved in any kind of sexual or romantic relationship with his nephew. The idea is not only untrue, it is disgusting.”
Ricky’s nephew dropped the charges in late July 2022, according to Al Dia News.
Per Deadline, Ricky is set to star in an Apple TV Plus original comedy series called Mrs. American Pie.
