Ricky Martin files $20 million lawsuit against nephew following domestic abuse allegations

The Livin' la Vida Loca singer was hit with a restraining order in July after his 21-year-old nephew, Dennis Yadiel Sanchez, made claims of domestic violence against him. Sanchez also alleged they had been in a seven-month relationship, but withdrew his case shortly after. Martin filed a lawsuit for extortion, malicious prosecution, and abuse of rights against Sanchez in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Wednesday claiming that he has continued to send him messages threatening to "assassinate his reputation" unless "he is economically compensated".
