Ricky, Men and Menudo

I binge shows on planes.  Therefore, I’m looking forward to my next trip so that I can see the four-part docuseries Menudo: Forever Young.  However, I don’t expect to be shocked by any of the allegations of bad behavior towards singing boys who were replaced at the sight of their first pubic hair!  One cannot be too surprised that impresario Edgardo Diaz (the Lou Pearlman of Latin America) does not appear or comment on the charges.  However, I am intrigued that Ricky Martin also refused to talk and only appears in archival footage.

The timing is curious, because one of Ricky Martin’s former managers just hit him with a $3 million lawsuit for unpaid commissions.  In the fine print of the suit, something caught my eye: “Martin has now threatened Rebecca [the manager] and is attempting to force her to sign an agreement with a nondisclosure clause to silence Rebecca about the abhorrent behavior by Martin that she has both witnessed and endured.”  There aren’t many specifics, but there is mention of “a particularly ugly incident in Dubai involving Martin and his representative Jose Vega”.  There are also allegations of “Martin’s nonpayment of taxes, and his substance abuse.”  Oh, this is gonna get good.
