Ricky Martin is not shy about getting steamy for fans!
The 51-year-old chart topper got more than a handful of adults lusting after him after he appeared in nothing but a towel in a new social media video posted recently. This is a new trend for the “La Copa de la Vida” singer, who often uses his platform to promote his music and connect with his fanbase.
Ricky Martin Flaunted His Toned Legs & Abs In A Steamy Instagram Video
Although Martin is no stranger to posting the occasional thirst trap online, he took things a step further when he hopped on Instagram last week to share brief footage of himself in a towel. The clip, seemingly shot after he stepped out of the shower, showed a white towel wrapped around the “Adrenalina” artist’s waist.
The view is cropped so that viewers can only see from his tattooed leg to halfway up his body, giving the slightest glimpse of his rock-hard abs before cutting off. Succinctly put, it was the perfect tease to his 18 million followers, and they speedily aired their thoughts — and thirsty wishes — in the comment section.
“Let it fall, let it fall 👏👏👏,” one fan advocated, as another exclaimed, “THE WORLD IS PRAYING TO DROP THAT TOWEL.” A third viewer claimed that the Grammy Award winner “really” loved “making us suffer,” and a fourth quipped, “Context of the photo? I don’t know, but I’m interested in the publication.”
“The audience wants more,” a fifth fan informed Martin, and a sixth asked, “Can I be your sponge 🔥🔥😍😍.” A seventh noted that people in the comments were “praying” for the towel drop, just as an eighth chimed, “I want to be reincarnated in [that] towel.”
Fans have been slowly coming around to enjoying the singer’s content again following the allegations of abuse that trailed him last year. According to a report from Marca in August 2022, the MTV Video Music Awards recipient’s nephew, Dennis Yaddiel Sanchez, filed a lawsuit accusing him of domestic violence and an illicit love affair.
Sanchez asserted that his uncle was obsessed with him and had been in a secret romantic relationship for seven months. In reaction to the allegations, Martin released a statement via his lawyer that began:
“Unfortunately, the person who made this claim is struggling with deep mental health challenges. Ricky Martin has, of course, never been – and would never be – involved in any kind of sexual or romantic relationship with his nephew.”
“The idea is not only untrue, it is disgusting. We all hope that this man gets the help he so urgently needs. But, most of all, we look forward to this awful case being dismissed as soon as a judge gets to look at the facts,” the statement concluded.
The ‘Adrenalina’ Singer Cut Ties With Other Family Members In Response To The Lawsuit
In addition to putting out the disclaimer, the “Nobody Wants to Be Lonely” singer also reportedly cut ties with his extended family members to reduce his chances of being surprised by them again. Addressing the drama facing the family, one insider stated:
“Everyone talks about what happens to someone when they become famous. No one talks about what happens to a famous person’s family when suddenly one person is a multimillionaire with great power.”
The source then hinted at the possible start of the “Hercules” star’s problems, recounting, “He was the cash cow and ensured everyone benefited from his success. However, after the ugly accusations made by his half-sister’s son, Ricky has put up walls. It’s awful, but now Ricky can’t trust anyone anymore, not even his family!”
It is worth noting that even though Sanchez initially withdrew his lawsuit, he has filed it again, asking for $10 million in damages. The countersuit comes months after his uncle filed his $20 million lawsuit against him, arguing that the incest and abuse allegations cost him millions of deals.
Additionally, the “Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey” actor released a new single, “Acido Sabor” — which translates to “Sour Taste” in English — at the height of the drama, making some fans wonder if the lyrics have anything to do with the back and forth between him and Sanchez.
