A statement began circulating that purported to be from Daddy Yankee that read, "I am a human being like any other, with virtues and defects, and I don't believe that this is a defect."

The Los Angeles Times, however, reports that Daddy Yankee's publicist, Mayna Nevarez, issued a statement refuting that the singer ever actually acknowledged he was gay.

"Online blogs and social media are once again to blame for the spread of false news reports, which other media outlets have also shared regarding a public figure," said Nevarez. "The reports circulating regarding Daddy Yankee's declaration of homosexuality was falsely written by an online outlet known for fabricating false information and spreading it through social media sites."
