Despite shouting from the rooftops that his stepdaughter, Noelia, had damaged his image in several statements against him, the producer TOPY Mamery received a low blow from a Puerto Rican court, which dismissed a claim he had filed against his stepdaughter and her husband, agent Jorge Reynoso, for alleged offences of libel and defamation.

This was announced by Puerto Rican newspaper El Nuevo Dia, which asserted that the judge, Jose A. Fuste, did not find sufficient merit to proceed with the demand, believing that the stepfather of the 30-year-old Puerto Rican singer did not provide necessary evidence needed to prove that there was intentional malice.

“This case is about family gossip being exposed in the public sector within the context of public figures in the world of entertainment, in which the actors chose to discuss their stormy relationship in public,” the judge said when announcing his decision, adding that “hatred and ill will is not enough evidence.”

The legal battle between Mamery and the “Como Duele” crooner started when a video began to circulate, in which the singer appeared to be having sex with her former boyfriend, Puerto Rican singer Jamil. The daughter of Yolandita Monge accused her stepfather of being behind it, while he claimed that Jorge Reynoso was the culprit, and demanded $15 million in compensation for the injurious accusations.
