Ricky Martin's nephew refiles sexual assault claim after admitting it never happened
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Singer Ricky Martin has received yet another sexual assault complaint from the same nephew who admitted it never happened.
According to the Associated Press, the complaint was filed on Friday at a police precinct. While the identity of accuser has not been publicly revealed, an unauthorized source confirmed to the outlet that Martin's nephew, Dennis Yadiel Sánchez Martin (21), filed the complaint.
Sánchez originally filed a restraining order against Martin in July, accusing the singer of mentally and physically abusing him during and after an alleged relationship.
The case was archived by the judge after Sánchez admitted under oath that the star had never sexually assaulted him.
The singer has vehemently denied the allegations, which his legal team say are "untrue" and "disgusting."
Last week, Martin filed a $30-million lawsuit against his nephew for malicious prosecution, damages, abuse of rights, and extortion. He also claims the accusations have ruined his career and future projects, which he is seeking restitution for.
It's unclear how Sánchez plans to win the case against Martin after having admitted the allegations are untrue. If convicted, Martin could face up to 50 years in prison.
