Ricky Martin denies reports he is planning to marry boyfriend

Ricky MartinA spokesperson for singer Ricky Martin has denied he is planning to marry his long-term partner.

{jcomments off}A report in the Puerto Rican newspaper the El Duvero Dia claimed the singer was planning to marry his partner, Carlos Gonzalez Abella, in New York at the end of January. Same-sex marriage was legalised in New York last year with thousands of couples taking advantage and tying the knot. However, a spokesperson for Ricky Martin has denied the singer will be one of them and insisted the El Duvero Dia report was inaccurate.

In November of last year Martin was granted Spanish citizenship which was, according to reports, so he could marry his partner. Same-sex marriage was legalised in the European country in 2005 though there are now reports the new government could reverse the law. Martin had previously stated he wouldn’t marry until gay marriage was legalised in his home country of Puerto Rico.
