Ricky Martin’s Girlfriends
Sometime in the early 2000s, the media began to take an interest in Martin’s sexuality after his gay fan base grew slowly but steadily. There was one case where a journalist asked him to comment on his sexual orientation. Martin claimed that he could not be obliged to disclose who he was sleeping with; whether male or female, it was nobody’s business, he stressed. This response only increased curiosity about his love life. On March 29, 2010, he finally announced that he was gay. Before that, Ricky had gone out with some very beautiful women, here is a list of the women he charmed.
Martin met shy Gabriela at the height of her powers as a tennis player in the early 90s. Although Gabriela was a star, she always preferred to stay out of the spotlight – an obvious contrast to Ricky’s glamorous lifestyle. They were together for 5 months, a romance that Gabriella considers one of the “craziest” she has ever experienced. She is still unmarried and has never had children.
The two singers from Puerto Rico were a couple for a while after Ricky’s relationship with Gabriella ended. The relationship was short-lived and ended in 1992, after which Ricky said in an interview that the relationship had been broken off by Alejandra, he felt a little inconsolable after the end of the affair.

Apart from calling her “the perfect woman”, Martin revealed that Rebecca was aware of his sexuality and respected the fact that he was gay.
Between 2000 and 2002 there were rumors that Martin was together with his girlfriend Ines Misan. It is suspected that what they had been going through for two years Although Martin’s statements were intended to play down everything they had, Ines never concealed the fact that there were mutual romantic feelings between them.
In 2004 there were rumors that Martin had been with Alessandra, but the stories were neither confirmed nor denied by either side.
