Over the past few days, rumors have been going around that Ricky Martin and his longtime partner Carlos Gonzalez Abella got married or are planning to marry in NYC soon. As you may recall, marriage rumors concerning this two started up in April of last year. Back then, the reports were that Ricky and Carlos were planning to be married in Gonzalez‘s home country of Spain (the marriage rumors intensified in November when it was rumors swirled that Ricky applied for Spanish citizenship). People in Español is confirming today that Ricky and Carlos have NOT gotten married and have no plans to marry in the near future … certainly not in NYC.
Guess Ricky Martin won’t be tying the knot in NYC later this month after all. A rep for the Boricua superstar confirmed to People en Español that Martin will not be marrying his boyfriend of three years, despite earlier reports from Puerto Rican Newspaper El Nuevo Dia. According to the daily, Martin was scheduled to wed Carlos González on Saturday, Jan. 28 in New York City, where he finds himself prepping for his new role on Broadway as the historical Ché Guevara [in Evita]. Rumors were swirling back in November that Martin was seeking Spanish citizenship, to wed González in Spain, but the artist quickly denied the speculations. “The report is baseless,” Róndine Alcalá told Peopleenespañol.com “There are no wedding plans.” Martin’s rep based in Puerto Rico backed up Alcalá, when setting the record straight with El Nuevo Dia. “I don’t discuss Ricky’s, or the personal issues of any of the artists that I work with,” Alcalá said. “But, at the moment, I can say that (the wedding news) is not true.” The “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer took to twitter, posting an ambiguous message about the wedding allegations. “Of what you see, believe half of it,” Martin posted early on Tuesday. “Of what you read, believe nothing.”
To be honest, I was more apt to believe the marriage rumors when it was reported that the pair were planning to get hitched in Spain … that seemed, at the time, like a feasible option. It makes no sense to me that Ricky and Carlos would be planning to marry in New York because neither one of them is a citizen of the State of New York. If you also consider the fact that Ricky is working feverishly to prepare for his Broadway debut as Ché Guevara in the musical revival of Evita, well, it just doesn’t seem to make any sense at all that wedding plans are in the works. I’m happy to know that Ricky and Carlos are still very happy together … married or not.
