Ricky Martin‘s lawyers say he “can now move forward with his life and career” after a temporary restraining order against him was dropped on Thursday.Earlier this month, Martin’s nephew filed the order and accused the singer of sexual abuse in Puerto Rico. Martin, 50, vowed to fight the claims, with a representative calling them, “completely false and fabricated.”In a statement released on Martin’s Twitter account on Thursday his lawyers Joaquín Monserrate Matienzo, Carmelo Dávila, and Harry Massanet Pastrana said: “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.”It continued: “The request came from the accuser asking to dismiss the case.
