Allegations and Denial

The accusations against Huerta include sexual abuse, specifically stealthing, which he vehemently denies. In a previous statement, the actor acknowledged having been in a consensual relationship with Ríos and expressed that their interactions were always loving, warm, and supportive. However, he claimed that Ríos began misrepresenting their relationship after it ended, both privately and in front of mutual friends.

Taking Legal Action and Future Projects

In response to the allegations, Huerta has engaged a legal team to protect his reputation and refute the “irresponsible and false accusations” that could cause significant prejudice and harm. While he exits ‘Fiesta En La Madriguera,’ Huerta remains attached to Netflix’s upcoming series, ‘El Elegido’ (The Chosen One), alongside Dianna Agron and Bobby Luhnow. The series, previewed at the Tudum global fan festival, is set to be released in August.
