By the time he was 18 in 1989, he was due to leave the group as that was the set age limit for members. This saw him returning to Puerto Rico to finish high school before moving to New York to pursue a solo acting and singing career as a professional.

He met success going this path as he released several Spanish-language solo albums throughout the 1990’s. In 1994, he appeared on the popular US TV soap opera General Hospital, where he played the role of a Puerto Rican singer. By 1999, he performed “The Cup of Life” at the 41st Annual Grammy Awards show. This launched him into global stardom as he joined the list of much talked about celebrities.

After the success of his hit song “Livin’ la Vida Loca” his life and personality became a subject of public hunger. Questions were asked about his sexual orientation and by December 2000 in an interview with the Mirror, he was openly asked to comment on the many prying questions about his sexual bearing. However, he insisted that he didn’t owe anyone an explanation of what his sexual orientation was or who and who he has and has not slept with. Thus the public couldn’t specifically associate him with being gay or straight.

As time would have it in 2010, Martin with his volition publicly acknowledged his homosexuality status in a post on his official website stating: “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.” He went on to say that “these years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn’t even know existed.” He disclosed that it was an inappropriate question for the choice of his to have been disrespectfully questioned in an interview he had in 2000.

Well, he is a happy gay man. The next question is who is his gay partner?

In 2011, during his acceptance speech in an epoch-making event of the Vito Russo Award at the 22nd GLAAD Media Awards, Martin publicly thanked his boyfriend, Carlos González Abella, an economist. Thus that was his first publicly known gay partner. However, his relationship with González Abella ended in January 2014. The reason is not publicly known.
