It is not known who requested the restraining order, as the country’s law guarantees the anonymity of those who complain. Representatives for the singer told People magazine that “the allegations against Ricky Martin are completely false and fabricated”.

What does the order and restrictions say

Puerto Rican newspaper ‘El Vocero’ reported that the order states that Martin and the other party “have been in a relationship for seven months. They broke up two months ago, but Martin does not accept the separation. He calls him frequently.”

The newspaper added that Martin was seen “wandering around his residence on at least three occasions” and that the whistleblower “fears for his safety”, the order states, according to El Vocero.

According to the police spokesperson, the order prohibits Martin from contacting or calling the person who presented it and that a judge will later determine at a hearing whether the order should remain in effect or be withdrawn. He added that normally orders are valid for at least a month.

The officer further noted that the person who requested the restraining order did not contact the police, which would have left prosecutors to determine whether there was sufficient evidence to press charges. Instead, the request went directly to court.
