Ricky Martin is not marrying boyfriend
Carlos Gonzalez in New York, a representative has announced.
On Sunday, El
Nuevo Dia quoting an unnamed source reported that Martin and
Gonzalez were planning to wed in a ceremony on January 28 in New York
“It is a completely incorrect
report,” a Martin spokesperson told GossipCop.com,
which declared the claim to be a rumor.
Martin “has no set plans to marry,”
the spokesperson added.
Martin himself denied the claim in a
brief Twitter exchange in Spanish.
When @AnaMaria60 asked, “@ricky_martin
is it true that you're getting married?” Martin responded: “Of
what you see, believe half. Of what you read, believe nothing.”
Speculation that the Puerto Rican
singer was preparing to wed his boyfriend reached a fever pitch in
November after Martin secured citizenship in Spain, one of 10
countries where gay marriage is legal.
Rumors that Martin would marry in
Argentina or Spain continued even after the artist denied them during
a stop in Mexico.
“In my house there is no talk of
marriage,” Martin told reporters during a news conference to
promote his latest studio album Musica+Alma+Sexo.
“I'm not going to get married, we are
very happy as we are, we've been together three years,” he added.
During a CNN interview shortly after
coming out in 2010, Martin told host Larry King that he would
consider getting hitched but wanted to do so in the United States.
New York became the sixth state to
legalize gay marriage in June and the law took effect in July.
The former Menudo star came out
gay in his memoir Me.
