Ricky Martin's Attorney Says Allegations of a Sexual Relationship with His Nephew Are 'Untrue'

EXCLUSIVE:  Ricky Martin won't ever have "any sort of sexual or heartfelt connection with his nephew,"

a legal counselor for the vocalist expressed Friday as his client faces charges of homegrown maltreatment from the more youthful relative in Puerto Rico.

"Sadly, the individual who made this case is battling with profound psychological wellness challenges,"

Martin's legal advisor Marty Singer told Deadline today. "Ricky Martin has, obviously, never been — 

and could never be-associated with any sort of sexual or close connection with his nephew," 

the Hollywood heavyweight litigator added. "The thought isn't just false, it is sickening."

"We as a whole expectation that this man gets the assistance he so critically needs," 

Singer said. "Yet, in particular, we anticipate this dreadful case being excused when an appointed authority will check current realities out."
