Ricky Martin was accused by his 21-year-old nephew of having a 7-month sexual relationship with him. The accuser went on to say that Martin later stalked and harassed him. The judge dismissed the case, which has now left the singer to focus solely on his music.
Martin appeared at the Hollywood Bowl in front of a packed house to perform with the L.A. Philharmonic Orchestra on June 22nd. The singer and songwriter seemingly alluded to the accusations made by his nephew when he addressed the crowd.
Are you really having a good time? All I want is for you to forget all your issues tonight and just focus on love and light and let’s just have a good time. Are you ready Los Angeles to have a good time?
There were rumors of whether the Hollywood Bowl would outright cancel Martin’s appearance at the show. However, the Hollywood Bowl decided to stick with the ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca’ superstar amidst all the controversy. It’ll be interesting to see whether Martin will continue to get more bookings after this.
