Ricky Martin and his longtime partner Carlos González Abella have split, El Nuevo Día reports:
The separation from González Abella comes just a few weeks after the artist acknowledged to Agencia EFE that he hoped to get married in Spain. Martin obtained Spanish citizenship two years ago, although he was born in Puerto Rico and considers himself a boricua.
Martin is currently a coach on the television show “The Voice Australia”.
Martin said he would not be commenting publicly on the break-up.
In celebration of the release of his first children's book, Santiago the Dreamer in Land Among the Stars, Ricky Martin stopped by Good Morning America to share why his experience as a father inspired him to become a children's author in the first place.
Later, Martin was also tested on his knowledge of children's books with a quiz on classics like Where the Wild Things Are and Green Eggs and Ham.

The Human Rights Campaign is looking to give Russia's LGBT Community a big boost of support leading up to the Sochi Olympic Games with the launch of its "Love Conquers Hate" solidarity campaign today.
Via press release:
Participants will share a photo of themselves wearing the Russian-language version of HRC's iconic Love Conquers Hate t-shirt on their social media platforms with the hashtag #LoveConquersHate, encouraging their followers from around the world to do the same. Each photo that is shared with the campaign hashtag will be aggregated at www.loveconquershate.org. 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of the t-shirts will go to a fund that supports LGBT advocates in Russia.
The campaign site also features a diverse group of prominent celebrities, athletes, and politicians who are speaking out in support of the LGBT community in Russia and against the country's homophobic laws. Participants include: Jonah Hill, Kristen Bell, Fergie, Kelly Osbourne, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, America Ferrera, Ricky Martin, Perez Hilton, Anthony Bourdain, Wentworth Miller, Tim Gunn, Jason Collins, and many others.
Said HRC President Chad Griffin:
"Love and equality are universal values that aren't limited by language or national borders. We stand with Russia's LGBT community and their allies, and we are committed to doing as much as we possibly can to support their efforts to repeal this heinous law."
