"Truth prevails" ang pahayag ni Ricky Martin at ng kanyang asawang si Jwan Yosef dahil lumabas na ang katotohanan tungkol sa mabigat na akusasyon ng kanyang 21-year-old nephew na si Daniel Yadiel Sanchez.
Kaso ng incest ang reklamo ni Daniel na nagsabing tumagal ng pitong buwan ang relasyon nila ni Ricky.
Ayon pa sa kanya, hindi matanggap ng kanyang tiyuhin ang kanilang paghihiwalay kaya nagsampa siya ng temporary restraining order (TRO) para hindi na makalapit sa kanya ang 50-year-old singer.
Nakasaad sa TRO petition ni Daniel na tatlong beses nang pumupunta sa kanyang tahanan si Ricky.
Inakusahan din niya ng paggamit ng illegal drugs ang dating miyembro ng Menudo.
Mariing pinabulaanan ni Ricky ang lahat mga paratang ni Daniel.
Kahapon, July 21, 2022, mismong ang pamangkin ni Ricky ang nag-urong sa mga reklamo laban sa kanya.
Ang mga abogado ni Ricky na sina Joaquin Monserrate Matienzo, Carmelo Davila, at Harry Massanet Pastrana ang naglabas ng opisyal na pahayag tungkol sa pag-atras ng complainant.
Nakasad dito: “Just as we had anticipated, the temporary protection order was not attended by the Court.
"The accuser confirmed to the court that his decision to dismiss the matter was his alone, without any outside influence or pressure, and the accuser confirmed he was satisfied with his legal representation in the matter.
“The request came from the accuser asking to dismiss the case. This was never anything more than a troubled individual making false allegations with absolutely nothing to substantiate them.
"We are glad that our client saw justice done and can now move forward with his life and his career."
Ang asawa ni Ricky na si Jwan ang isa sa mga unang pinasalamatan ng singer dahil sa suportang ibinigay nito sa kanya sa eskandalong sumubok sa kanilang matatag na relasyon.
“Mi fuerza y mi calma. Te amo hbb [My strength and my calm. I love you hbb],” mensahe ni Ricky para kay Jwan na hindi siya iniwan sa gitna ng laban at naniniwalang hindi nagtaksil sa kanya ang sikat na Puerto Rican singer.
RICKY'S STATEMENT TO HIS NEPHEW
Matapos iurong ang mga kasao laban sa kanya, naglabas ng video message si Ricky.
Pahayag niya, "I am in front of the cameras today because I really need to talk to start my healing process.
"For two weeks I was not allowed to defend myself because I was following procedure where the law obligated me not to talk until I was in front of the judge.
"Thank God these claims were proven to be false but I'm here to tell the truth, it has been so painful, it has been devastating for me, for my family, for my friends..."
May mensahe rin si Ricky sa kanyang pamangkin: "To the person that was claiming this nonsense, I wish you the best. And I wish he finds the help so he can start a new life filled with love and truth and joy and he doesn't hurt anybody else."
Pagpapatuloy ng singer, "Now, my priority is to heal. How do I heal? With music. I cannot wait to be back on stage. I cannot wait to be back in front of the cameras and entertain, which I do best.
"Thank you to all my friends. Thank you to all the fans who always believed in me. You have no idea the strength that you gave me with every comment that you wrote on social media.
"I wish you love and light and here we come, with the same strength and passion.
"God bless you all."
