Pop icon Ricky Martin has filed a lawsuit against his nephew over what he claims were false allegations of sexual abuse and incest.The Puerto Rican singer accused his nephew, identified as Dennis Yadiel Sánchez Martin, of extortion, malicious prosecution, and abuse of law.

Martin’s lawyers say that the star has lost millions in income since Sánchez’s claims, which he later recanted.The complaint filed in the Superior Chambers of San Juan read: “The reckless, malicious and culpable actions by Defendant Sanchez were motivated by the desire to expose Plaintiff to hatred and disdain from his fanbase, to threaten his business opportunities and to destroy his reputation.”“As a matter of fact, such actions caused Plaintiff to have multimillion dollar-contracts and present and future artistic projects canceled,” it continued. “The pecuniary damages caused as a result of these actions are quantified in an amount not less than ten million dollars.”Martin was accused of domestic violence in early July through a restraining order filed in Puerto Rico, though the identity of his accuser was kept sealed.

The person who filed for the order was later revealed to be Sánchez, who alleged he and Martin were engaged in a romantic and sexual relationship for seven months.
