Nephew

A lawsuit was brought against Ricky Martin in July of last year. His nephew Dennis Yadiel Sanchez Martin had accused the Puerto Rican musician of engaging in domestic violence. The artist’s nephew himself sought to have the claims dropped, insisting that it was a totally voluntary and free choice.

All of this occurred though after the singer accused the young man of extortion and demanded damages. He had initially been sued by Dennis for a purported sexual assault. It should also be remembered that Ricky Martin’s nephew, according to the singer’s attorney, has mental health issues.
