Did Ricky Martin’s nephew accuse singer of domestic violence?

A Puerto Rican tabloid sparked a debate on Twitter after claiming that Ricky Martin’s nephew is the one who has slapped the singer with a restraining order. To reiterate, the identity of the petitioner is still under wraps. The loyal fans of the Grammy-winning crooner came to his rescue completely getting disgusted by the idea of him being in a relationship with his nephew.
 
According to Complex, Puerto Rican newspaper El Vocero obtained a copy of the order, which alleged that Ricky Martin did not accept the breakup and has spent the last two months harassing the petitioner.  The order stated, “[Martin] calls him frequently. In addition, the petitioner has seen him hanging around his residence on at least three occasions. The petitioner fears for his safety the petitioning party demonstrated that there is a substantial possibility of immediate risk of abuse.” It was reported that the petitioner did not initially file a police complaint and rather went to court in their own right to request a protection order.
