Ricky Martin denies allegations after domestic abuse restraining order filed

A temporary domestic abuse restraining order has been filed against Ricky Martin in Puerto Rico, while the singer is denying the allegations laid out in it. A police spokesperson told the Associated Press on July 2 that officers visited the town of Dorado, where the Livin' La Vida Loca performer lives, in order to try to serve him the order but that ‘police haven't been able to find him.’ The spokesperson also said the document was filed under Puerto Rico's domestic violence law. The singer's rep told in a statement in response, "The allegations against Ricky Martin that lead to a protection order are completely false and fabricated. We are very confident that when the true facts come out in this matter our client Ricky Martin will be fully vindicated." The newspaper also reported that the order states that ‘the petitioning party demonstrated that there is a substantial possibility of immediate risk of abuse’ and orders Martin to ‘refrain from approaching, harassing, intimidating, or threatening' with the petitioner, or contacting them by email or on social media.
