Controversies

Ozuna’s success has not come without some hiccups. The singer has been involved in several controversies including a blackmail scandal. In 2017, a blackmailer, who had a video of a 16-year-old Ozuna performing a sex act, extorted $50,000 from the singer. The singer and his management later reported the whole matter to the FBI as well as Miami PD. The blackmailer turned out to be Kevin Fret, an openly gay trap artist from Puerto Rico. Ozuna later apologized to his family and fans for any embarrassment that his actions may have caused.
