134522-original Our guy Ricky Martin, 42, was captured out and about looking towards the sun [we can’t say for sure or no, if Living La Vida Loca, but as of early January this year, has been living la vida “sola”] but the successful spiritual crooner had reported separated from his long-time partner Carlos Gonzalez.

RICKY  RICKY3 His rep told our sources in a statement: “Ricky and Carlos have mutually agreed to end their relationship but continue to be united by friendship and their shared experiences.”

th (28) It was just last year [2013 in Vanity Fair] Martin spoke highly of Gonzalez stating that he was supportive of his lifestyle (which included the fact that he-Martin-is also the father of five year-old twins: Matteo and Valentino, born via a surrogate back in 2008 August). His boys are just as much apart of him, as he is of them. Martin takes fatherhood seriously. And being with him is a package deal-like a single mother with children. No games.

Spiritual.

Grounded.

Still beautiful.

Still talented.

Still sexy.

But also very domesticated. 

th (26)   I have experienced wonderful things with my partner. Complexity, understanding, and, at the same time, freedom, not being afraid that your partner is judging you. That is what I have found with Carlos. We’re going on four years together. When I started the process with my sons, Carlos wasn’t in my life [I said] th (25)I’m looking for a boyfriend, not a father with a family.‘ {And I said to him}: ‘You’ve found a grown-up, full-fledged man.’ I created a family structure and if he didn’t understand he’d ask me questions and we were on our way.

ricky-carlos-300 Ricky Martin is, and has always been a very private celebrity, so know one knows for sure why the two split. It was rumored that distance was a factor. The source was quoted as having said to People Magazine: “They’ve spent very little time together and have grown apart-they’ve been on the outs for a while now.”

I love Ricky Martin. He’s a beautiful spirit. And we at Other Side of the Fame wish him all the best.
