Ricky Martin distancing himself from family after incest scandal

Ricky Martin is distancing himself from his family after his nephew accused him of abuse and incest earlier this year.

Radaronline.com reported that Dennis Yadiel Sanchez, 21, accused the grammy award winner of having a seven-month romantic relationship.

According to Sanchez, Martin became obsessed with him after the relationship ended.  Martin has denied the accusations and said that his nephew made them up.

In the end, the nephew chose to dismiss his lawsuit against Martin.
“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,” Martin’s lawyer said.
According to reports, Martin sued Sanchez for $20 million in September, claiming his alleged lies had cost him multi-million dollar deals.

“Everyone talks about what happens to someone when they become famous,” dished a source.  “No one talks about what happens to a famous person’s family when suddenly one person is a multimillionaire with great power.”
