Ricky Martin hit out with a $3 million lawsuit from the former manager

Ricky Martin has been hit with a $3 million lawsuit by his ex-manager Rebecca Drucker.

Drucker – who worked with Martin from 2014 to 2018 and then again from 2020 to 2022 – is suing the Latin music icon, 50, for unpaid commissions, according to legal documents filed in Los Angeles Central District Court on Wednesday, which state a “potentially Accusation of career end.”

Drucker noted that because of his “personal and professional life,” she worked with him on two separate occasions [being] in absolute turmoil” and reportedly helped the Puerto Rican singer navigate the world of “recording deals, touring and sponsorship deals and other professional endeavors.”

“Rebecca Drucker saved Ricky Martin’s career,” claimed the 15-page suit, seen by The Post. “There’s only one problem: Martin has completely and maliciously refused to pay Rebecca the millions of dollars in commissions he owes her under her management contract.”

“With Rebecca by his side, Martin has made millions of dollars and as a result owes Rebecca substantial commissions,” the complaint reads.

The Post has reached out to Martin’s rep for comment.

Drucker also alleged in the lawsuit that the “Livin’ la Vida Loca” crooner was threatened and intimidated with a “potentially career-ending allegation” in September 2020.

“Rebecca was also fiercely protective of Martin,” she claimed in the lawsuit, noting that she “advised him and brought in a top-notch trial attorney to handle the matter.”

Because of her help and knowledge of the music industry, she noted, Martin “came through unscathed and continued on his way up the career ladder.”

“Now set to star in the highly anticipated Apple TV+ series ‘Mr. and Mrs. American Pie, ‘Martin is once again poised to reach the heights of fame and fortune,’ Drucker asserted.

The lawsuit also alleges that Martin has a “toxic work environment” and discussed “a particularly ugly incident in Dubai involving Martin and his representative, José Vega” in 2018.

Drucker also claimed in the lawsuit that although “Martin’s career has thrived since he rehired Rebecca as his manager in May 2020,” she was “forced to deal with a whole host of Martin’s personal issues, like troubles.” with the nanny he hired to take care of his children, Martin’s non-payment of taxes, and his substance abuse.”

The document then claimed that there was a “forced” termination of their business relationship and claimed the former Menudo singer manipulated and lied to her, leading to her departure earlier this year.

Drucker claimed Martin “threatened” her to shut up and remain silent with a non-disclosure agreement. She has refused to sign the non-disclosure agreement and has filed a plea for jury trial and pleas.
