Ricky Martin tells how he felt after his nephew accused him of incest

Well-known music star, of Latin origin, Ricky Martin, who was sued by his nephew for incest, has said that this experience is the worst thing he has ever experienced.

Martin in 2022 took legal action against his nephew, Dennis Yadiel Sanchez, who has a sister's (paternal only) son, who had previously sought a protective order, alleging that Martin had abused him and that they had a relationship that had lasted seven months. But later Sanchez withdrew the lawsuit.

For this scandal, the singer has admitted that it is the worst that has ever happened to him in his life.

"It is the worst. This has caused me pain that I have never experienced before. I thank God that these are baseless accusations," Martin told GQ magazine.

Then he continued the interview telling about his life as a homosexual. He said that when he became famous in 1999 he could not tell the world about this.

The star, who has two children with his ex-husband, Jwan Yosef, has admitted that he was afraid to tell after family and friends warned him that if he did, his career would be over.

"I was very famous then with the song 'Livin' La Vida Loca' and the dance. The audience had high expectations from me. I was afraid to show that I am gay", said Martin.

Many years later when he publicly acknowledged the fact in question, he says he felt much better.

"It was a wonderful feeling. I wish I had done it earlier. But the past cannot be changed. There is nothing you can do about what we lived before," said the 52-year-old.
