Singer Ricky Martin could be facing 50 years in prison following bombshell domestic violence allegations reportedly filed by his 21-year-old nephew, multiple news outlets reported.

A judge in Puerto Rico issued a “domestic violence-related” restraining order against the Latin pop icon two weeks ago, according to Spanish publication Marca.

The alleged victim’s name was not previously disclosed. However, Marca reported, Martin’s brother, Eric Martin, claimed that the victim is 21-year-old Dennis Yadiel Sanchez — the singer’s nephew.

Under Puerto Rico’s laws for “incest charges,” the sentence Martin could face is 50 years in prison if the shocking claims are true.

According to the report, the complaint was made anonymously under Law 54, known as the Domestic Abuse Prevention and Intervention Act.

local newspaper El Vocero reported that the court order states Martin and the person who filed the complaint dated for seven months. The alleged victim claimed that Martin didn’t take their break up well and has loitered near the petitioner’s home at least three times.

Earlier this month, the “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer was slapped with a $3 million lawsuit from his ex-manager, Rebecca Drucker, for unpaid commissions — and the legal documents allude to her the pop icon from a “potentially career-ending allegation.”

Martin — who released a six-song EP, titled “Play,” on Wednesday — denied the allegations in a post to Twitter on July 3, writing: “The protection order entered against me is based on completely false allegations, so I will respond through the judicial process with the facts and the dignity that characterize me.

“Because it is an ongoing legal matter, I cannot make detailed statements at this time. I am grateful for the countless messages of solidarity, and I receive them with all my heart.”
