Ricky Martin is getting real about open relationships!
The singer and star, now 46, is playing the longtime partner of fashion icon Gianni Versace — a man named Antonio D’Amico — in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, and in the promotional run-up to the show, Martin has some thoughts about open relationships!
Considering the real-life couple was non-monogamous and slept with other people, it’s Ricky’s hope that there won’t be much harsh judgment from fans who see how that storyline gets portrayed on the show.
Martin spoke to Vulture about it, saying (below):
“I want to normalize relationships like this. It’s good for the world; it’s good for me as a gay man with kids. It’s important that we shed some light on power couples like this.”
Interesting comments considering how Ricky has never publicly denied or confirmed that he and husband Jwan Yosef are in an open relationship.
But the Livin’ La Vida Loca singer continued on with more (below):
“I also believe there was a level of homophobia going around in [Antonio’s] family where he was hiding, even though he says, ‘My relationship was very open and free with Gianni’ ├óΓé¼┬ª The level of commitment after 15 years. The level of security between them and trust between them is so solid. We want to normalize another kind of reality for open relationships. And that’s what we’re doing. There’s absolutely nothing wrong.”
Thoughts, Perezcious readers?!
