Ricky Martin sues his nephew for extortion for unfounded accusation
Attorneys for Ricky Martin on Wednesday filed a civil lawsuit in Puerto Rico court against his nephew Dennis Yadiel Sánchez, alleging extortion, malicious persecution, abuse of rights, and damages.
Martin's lawsuit follows a July legal battle in which judge in San Juan issued a protection order in favor of his nephew after he denounced him for harassment, a claim Martin has refuted and rejected.
Judge decided not to extend protection order against Martin, because his nephew asked to dismiss case. After hearing, Police said protection order would be archived since there was nothing pending.
In the lawsuit filed, Martin requested financial compensation for a total of at least $30 million, alleging it caused "million-dollar contracts & present and future artistic projects" to be canceled.
Court papers states that it caused "damage to reputation until Protection Order became public, enjoyed an impeccable reputation earned through his long artistic career for last 40 years of his life."
These reputational damages are quantified "in a sum of not less than US $20 million," the lawsuit states. Martin is seeking the claimed damages, interest, costs and attorney's fees.
