A female Ricky Martin fan has paid £63,400 to have a passionate kiss with her idol.
And although the Latin pop star turned up with his new boyfriend, he apparently did not hold back at all in the kiss with dog breeder Ana Paola Diniz, the businesswoman and pet resort owner who put in the highest bid at the event.
The kiss was first prize in an auction to raise money for AIDS charities taking place in the city of Sao Paulo, in the south-eastern Brazilian state of the same name.
Also present were models Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and fashion designer Marc Jacobs, although it was not reported if they had also bid in the auction for the kiss.
The singer’s new boyfriend is Syrian-born painter Jwan Yosef who was raised in Sweden, and is based in London.
The pair walked down the red carpet together for the event organised by the Foundation for AIDS Research
The Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to the support of AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education, and the advocacy of AIDS-related public policy.
Ricky Martin became a trending topic once the video went viral, showing that the businesswoman got her $90,000 worth of kiss.
Earlier this year, Ricky, 44, admitted he would be open to having sex with a woman but would not be interested in a sentimental relationship, according to Mexican magazine, Fama!
He said: “I’m gay, men captivate me, but I like to enjoy sex in total liberty, which is why I am open to having sex with a woman if I felt the desire to, although I would not consider starting a sentimental relationship with her.
“In that way I’m all about men.”
