Livia Brito started 2022 with a victory in court, after a control judge dismissed the legal process filed by the photographer, Ernesto Zepeda, who more than a year ago in June 2020 denounced the Cuban actress and her partner, Mariano Martínez of allegedly having attacked him, when they were both in Cancun and the paparazzi tried to take pictures of him against his consent.

It was during the last week of 2021 that the legal dispute culminated setting a precedent in the Mexican entertainment, as the case was considered by a Mexican judge “as an attack on the privacy and intimacy of people”.

At the hearing, it was determined that the exposure of the image of any unauthorized individual violates the right to human dignity, and that the claim of those then accused was to protect their integrity and privacy. Therefore, the Mexican judge issued an order not to be linked to the process.

And it is that the Cuban actress and her partner could have spent 10 to 18 years in prison, corresponding to the penalty for robbery with violence in the state of Quintana Roo, as revealed by Ernesto Zepeda in a past interview for Windowing.
