Menudo Molestation

If you read this column regularly, you know about the documentary series, Menudo: Forever Young.  This exposé about the Latin prepubescent group Menudo discussed a number of the scandals, which included abuse – physical, psychological and sexual.  One of the people not part of that series was member Roy Rosselló.  But he has now come forward with a shocking claim.  He says that when he was 14, he was sexually assaulted by Jose Menendez.  If the name sounds familiar, it’s because he was the father of Lyle and Erik Menendez – who murdered their parents allegedly because of abuse!  Roy’s claims went public on Today because he’s part of another docuseries – Menendez + Menudo: Boys Betrayed.  Apparently, Jose was an executive at RCA Records, which was Menudo’s label.  Roy was brought to the Menendez mansion by Menudo creator, Edgardo Diaz – who is also accused of sexual assault (claims other group members have previously made).  Roy says he was drugged and assaulted while at the Menendez home.  In the documentary, Roy dramatically points to a photo of Jose Menendez and says, “That’s the man here that raped me.  That’s the pedophile”.  Erik Menendez has spoken out, saying, “It’s sad to know that there was another victim of my father”.  The docuseries airs on Peacock next month.
