Ricky Martin has been vindicated after his 21-year-old cousin levied a claim of sexual abuse against the famed singer. Martin was set to speak before a judge on the matter. Before that could happen, his cousin dropped the allegation that he and Martin had an unwanted long-term sexual relationship.
TMZ shared a video released by Ricky Martin where he finally opened up about the situation. He said that he was devastated by the ordeal. He hopes to use music as his therapy as he begins the healing process.
“I’m in front of the cameras today because I really need to talk in order for me to start my healing process. For two weeks, I was not allowed to defend myself because I was following a procedure where the law obligated me not to talk until I was in front of a judge.
“Thank God these claims were proven to be false, but I’m going to tell you the truth. It has been so painful. It has been devastating for me, for my family, for my friends. I don’t wish this upon anybody. To the person that was claiming this nonsense, I wish him the best and I wish he finds the help so he can start a new life filled with love and truth and joy and he doesn’t hurt anybody else.
Now, my priority is to heal. And how do I heal? With music. I cannot wait to be back on stage. I cannot wait to be back in front of the cameras and entertain, which is what I do best. Thank you to all of my friends. Thank you to all the fans who always believed in me.”
Ricky Martin was traumatized by the embarrassing accusations of his cousin. He still wishes him the best. Now, he just wants to get back on stage so he can find healing through performance.
