Martin’s publicist did not immediately return a message asking for comment.

It was not immediately known who had applied for the restraining order. Valencia said he was unable to provide further details because the warrant was filed under Puerto Rico’s domestic violence law.

the spokesmana Puerto Rico newspaper said Martin and the other party in command were seven months old.

The report cites the warrant stating that they split up two months ago, but the petitioner says Martin did not accept the divorce and was seen at least three times near the petitioner’s home.

“The petitioner fears for his safety,” El Vocero quoted the order as saying.

AP has not received a copy of the order.

Valencia said the injunction prohibits Martin from contacting or calling the person who filed it and a judge will determine at a later date during a hearing whether the injunction should remain in effect or be revoked. He says orders are usually fulfilled for at least a month.

Valencia noted that the person who requested the restraining order had failed to contact police, which would have led prosecutors to determine whether there was enough evidence to press charges. Instead, the request went straight to court.
