AceShowbiz - %cRicky Martin% and his new boyfriend made their first public appearance together on Friday, April 15. The "She Bangs" singer was photographed holding hands with Jwan Yosef on the red carpet of the amFAR Inspiration Gala in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
The couple was all smiles during the occasion as they posed in their dapper tuxedos. Martin later confirmed his relationship with the 32-year-old Syrian-born artist by Instagramming a photo of them at the event. "Yup," he captioned. Yosef was reportedly raised in Sweden but now resides in London.
Yosef was also not shy in showing off their romance. He uploaded an Instagram photo of them holding each other by the waist during the amFAR event and wrote, "We cleaned up good. THANK YOU @amfar for an amazing event..."
Martin helped to raise money for the AIDS charity. A female fan paid a $90,000 for a kiss with the hitmaker. Dog breeder Ana Paola Diniz won the bid and got smooched passionately by the 44-year-old singer.
Martin's relationship with Yosef has been going on for months. Rumors of their romance started when they posted each other's photos on their social media accounts. They vacationed together to Japan in late March and were spending time together in Malibu in early April.
Martin, who had dated women in the past, came out as gay in 2010. He was once in relationship with stockbroker Carlos Gonzalez-Abella for three years. He's also a single dad to 7-year-old twin sons Matteo and Valentino who were born via surrogate mother.
