Police reported on Saturday that a judge had issued the order against Martin, but attempts to serve the document on the musician in his home town of Dorado, Puerto Rico, were unsuccessful. Police spokesman Axel Valencia stated he was unable to provide any additional information, including who requested the order, but that it was submitted in accordance with Puerto Rico’s domestic violence law.
In a tweet, Martin claimed that the order was based on “completely false” accusations and that he would proceed “with the responsibility that characterizes me” in the matter.
“I appreciate the innumerable gestures of solidarity and I receive them with all my heart,” he wrote.
He said that since it was an open legal issue, he could not comment further.
Representatives for Martin earlier issued a statement and described the allegations as “completely false and fabricated.” It did not name the representatives.
“We are very confident that when the true facts come out in this matter our client Ricky Martin will be fully vindicated,” they said in a statement shared with The Associated Press.
El Vocero, a Puerto Rico newspaper, said the order states that Martin and the other person dated for seven months. The report quotes the order as saying they broke up two months ago, but the petitioner says Martin did not accept the separation and has been seen loitering near the petitioner’s house at least three times.
“The petitioner fears for his safety,” El Vocero quoted the order as saying.
