Noelia Monge sex tape scandal (Puerto Rican singer & actress)
Noelia Lorenzo Monge (born August 31, 1979 in San Juan, Puerto Rico), mostly known as Noelia, is a Puerto Rican pop singer who rose to fame in 1999. She is the first daughter of Puerto Rican singer Yolandita Monge.
In June 2007, an anal sex tape of Noelia and her ex-boyfriend Yamil was leaked on the Internet. In August 2007, Noelia accused her stepfather and former manager, Topy Mamery, of sexually assaulting her back in 2003; she claimed to have filed a lawsuit, calling singer Ricardo Montaner as a witness. However, Mamery denied having received any lawsuit, and Montaner denied ever having been called to testify. During an interview with Primer Impacto, Montaner was asked about this and he said, “I have never seen anything weird (between Noelia and Mamery). Mamery is a gentleman that has loved Noelia as his daughter.”
Topy Mamery claims that he was not the first person Noelia had accused of sexual assault. In the last five years, the singer had pointed the finger at Guillermo Santiso, former president of Fonovisa (her old record label), and singer Alejandro Montaner, son of Ricardo Montaner.
It was speculated that Topy Mamery was the person who leaked the private video of the star in 2007. Weeks later, Mamery sued Noelia and Jorge Reynoso in Federal Court for defamation and libel. In February 2008, Noelia’s lawyer decided to quit representing Noelia in the defamation lawsuit against her. In May 2008, the judge José A. Fusté did an annotation of defiance to the singer Noelia and to her partner and manager, Jorge Reynoso, in favor of the petition presented by Mamery, who sued the couple for defamation for knowingly making a false declaration that he had sexually assaulted Noelia. However, on June 13, 2008, Fusté dismissed the case by declaring that there was no defamation or libel since Mamery was a public figure. Fusté concluded that “although it is true there might be some indication that Reynoso could be connected to the website where the video was sold, the court could not say for sure if he was the one that put it” up for sale. Fusté also reprimanded both sides for public airing of their personal issues.
