New York, NY (SSBO GROUP) - Via this press release Samuel Beniquez want to express his point of view about several emails and telephone calls that his family and him have received in recent days. These emails and calls continuously request that he publicly make declarations about the rumor of a sentimental relationship between Ricky Martin
and him. At that moment, Samuel did not make any public statement, because he refused to be a part of a perverse publicity game that he says he considers low-class, repulsive, and sensationalist. He says publicity should not be conducted this way, nor should it pursue fame by destroying the reputation and credibility of others. Glory is won working hard and respecting our fellow human beings and by looking for positive results with dignity.
Samuel was unaware of these rumors and lies until someone sent him an email that showed internet websites, photos, and forums that claimed he had a relationship with this Puerto Rican star.
Around that time, Samuel Beniquez also received a telephone call with an unidentified number from a supposed journalist who attempted to pressure Samuel into talking about the subject and intended to blackmail him by claiming he had compromising photos that he would sell to the yellow press if Samuel refused to talk.
Samuel Beniquez has obtained information that this rumor has traveled the world via emails, spam, and different forums and chats in the United States, Europe, and adult websites.
Similarly, they have dared to write these allegations in the forums of his personal webpage www.samuelbeniquez.com, enormously obstructing the people who respect him and who visit his website on a regular basis.
These rumors have been a source of disbelief and personal anguish for Samuel, because at this moment he is going through very difficult times, pending resolution of the legal proceedings in Puerto Rico with his father Aaron (Civil Case No : KFI2004-0033).
Although his name is Samuel Beniquez, and his father is one of the most influential religious and business leaders of the Island, this should not be a motive to tarnish his reputation, nor should it be a motive to put his sexuality in question or to speculate about the friends who him associate with.
Samuel Beniquez is a young businessperson, arduously working in the entertainment industry, other type of businesses and currently finishing his law degree to obtain a profession with pride, and to contribute with dignity towards the building a better future for Puerto Rico. Everyone should remember that Samuel is a son, a friend, a brother, and a Puerto Rican proud of his Island. Samuel have a mother and a family who have suffered enormously with these personal attacks. Samuel Beniquez vividly narrates his life in his personal bestseller autobiography titled, 'Tu Alto Precio… Mi Gran Valor', but the privacy of his own place belongs only to him, today and always, and whomever he bring into his residence is his own business and no one else.
Samuel profoundly regrets that there are people in this world who act so cowardly, to immediately pass judgment over the lives of others, without having proofs for what their false allegations to the media. This behavior is inadmissible to him and he repudiate it strongly.
Samuel Beniquez respect and profoundly admire Ricky Martin and regret that he also has to be the object of all these unscrupulous persons. Samuel demand respect and the immediate cease of all these comments and rumors, without exception of persons or the media.
