[ # ] Did the Menéndez brothers’ dad rape a member of Menudo?
April 18th, 2023 under Peacock

It has been 3years since music executive José Menéndez and his wife, Kitty, were shot and killed. Their sons, Lyle and Erik, were convicted of their murder in 1996 after a very public trial.

During their trial, the Menéndez brothers alleged that their father physically and sexually abused them. But, there was no evidence found to support that claim.

However, their case might be reopened because Menudo’s Roy Rosselló is telling Peacock that he was raped by José Menéndez.

During the three-part series, Rosselló will share his story in Menendez + Menudo: Boys Betrayed. The streamer says he “could be the key to changing how the public views the brothers’ case while simultaneously crusading for his own justice.”

Rosselló joined the Puerto Rican boy band in 1983 when he was just 13 years old and was a member until 1986. The band was famous for kicking out bandmates when they got too old, which the joke was hitting puberty.

This is not the first time that a member of the group claimed they were raped or sexually abused by someone. But it was the first time that someone said that it was José Menéndez.

It will be interesting and heartbreaking to hear what is revealed in the limited series that starts streaming on May 2nd.

Just clarifying, Menudo was/is from Puerto Rico anmd m,y heart goes out to Roy, and without having any context I wonder why he didn’t speak out earlier. Better late than never I guess, but those guys have been incarcerated for over 20 years, this is awful just for everyone involved.
