Ricky Martin’s 21-year-old nephew has dropped claims of incest and sexual harassment against him, which the singer has always denied, and the case has now been dismissed. The star’s lawyers said they hope the 50-year-old can now “move forward with his life”. 

Today, while appearing in court, Ricky’s nephew withdrew his claims against the Livin’ la Vida Loca singer. 

His lawyers Joaquín Monserrate Matienzo, Carmelo Dávila and Harry Massanet Pastrana, released a statement which read: “Just as we had anticipated, the temporary protection order was not extended by the Court.

“The accuser confirmed to the court that his decision to dismiss the matter was his alone, without any outside influence or pressure, and the accuser confirmed he was satisfied with his legal representation in the matter.

“The request came from the accuser asking to dismiss the case. 

“This was never anything more than a troubled individual making false allegations with absolutely nothing to substantiate them. 

“We are glad that our client saw justice done and can now move forward with his life and his career.”

Ricky posted the message on his Twitter account, with the caption: “Truth prevails.” 

The Puerto Rican star’s lawyer said in a previous statement: “Unfortunately, the person who made this claim is struggling with deep mental health challenges. 

“Ricky Martin has, of course, never been – and would never be – involved in any kind of sexual or romantic relationship with his nephew.

“The idea is not only untrue, it is disgusting. 

“We all hope that this man gets the help he so urgently needs.
