Ricky Martin could potentially face 50 years in prison! His nephew, Dennis Yadiel Sanchez claimed that he was in a relationship with the Puerto Rican singer/songwriter for 7 months before they broke up in 2022. This means, under Puerto Rico’s laws for “incest charges,” Ricky could be jailed for decades.
So, who is Ricky Martin’s nephew? Keep reading this Dennis Yadiel Sanchez Bio to learn all about him.
Meet Dennis Yadiel Sanchez, Ricky Martin Nephew
Dennis Yadiel Sanchez was just an average boy transitioning out of college life when all of a sudden his name was making headlines.
In July 2022, El Vocero, a Puerto Rico newspaper, reported that Dennis (whose name was kept anonymous at the time) and Ricky dated for seven months before their breakup. Unable to cope with the separation, Ricky then allegedly loitered near Dennis’ home at least three times before the petitioner finally complained under Law 54, known as the Domestic Abuse Prevention and Intervention Act.
However, Ricky has a completely different story to tell. According to the star, “the person who made this claim” was struggling with deep mental health challenges. And not only did he find the allegation to be untrue, but also disgusting. “We all hope that this man gets the help he so urgently needs. But, most of all, we look forward to this awful case being dismissed as soon as a judge gets to look at the facts,” he added.
Likewise, his attorney stated, “Ricky Martin has, of course, never been — and would never be — involved in any kind of sexual or romantic relationship with his nephew.”
The last we checked, the investigation was still going on. And not only from the official authorities but also from the fans.
So, what did fans dig out? Well, it was a video of Dennis with Ricky at a restaurant in Doral Florida Miami having a good time and flaunting their muscles. Guess, the two were indeed close.
The news about “incest” comes a month after Martin was slapped with a $3 million lawsuit from his ex-manager, Rebecca Drucker. At the time, he was charged for unpaid commissions and the legal documents allude to her “protecting” the singer from a “potentially career-ending allegation.”
Dennis Yadiel Sanchez Mother
Dennis’s mother, Vanessa Martin, is Ricky’s stepsister.
She is a Superior University Gardens graduate who went on to study at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus. This fit lady loves dancing and despite her age, she breaks that body better than any teenager.
Vanessa turned 42 on June 9, 2022.
Here’s her Facebook @vanessa.torres.37051.
But though we’ve mentioned Vanessa to be Ricky’s stepsister, there were also conflicting reports that she was the star’s half-sister.
Ricky’s other half-siblings include — Fernando, Ángel Fernández, Daniel, and Eric
The most famous of all of them was Eric who initially followed in the footsteps of his brother Ricky. But unable to reach the height his brother did, Eric then turned into the world of body training. Today, Ricky’s younger brother is dedicated to bodybuilding and owns his own gym. The guy was even named Mister Puerto Rico in 2013.
Dennis Yadiel Sanchez Father
Dennis didn’t reveal the name of his father. Moreover, after the controversy he was in, it’s understandable that he wanted to keep his family away from it.
However, many believed Dennis just wanted to extort money from his rich uncle.
A FB user even pointed out the fact that why didn’t Dennis think of calling the police in those 7 months? “He used to like the thang. And Ricky short with him and that’s why he in this problem. Ridiculous, people. That’s not abuse. Why didn’t he fight and why didn’t he break his uncle’s face if he didn’t like him so much. Oh my. G.D. People,” the user added.
But despite the speculations, the court has already signed a protection order. And this was without sufficient evidence.
“The protection order entered against me is based on completely false allegations, so I will respond through the judicial process with the facts and the dignity that characterizes me,” the singer expressed his disapproval.
