Martin posted an Instagram photo of a wonderful paradise view showing the ocean, mountains and the sky. "Hello from #heaven," he wrote. Wait, was Ricky posting on Instagram from heaven?

Not really! He just was being sarcastic about the rumor saying he'd died in a car accident in Los Angeles. A couple of hours later, Martin posted a very sexy picture of himself against a sunset background, which he called "Sunset in Heaven."

Turns out, Martin was so relaxed enjoying his Puerto Rican vacation that even a rumor like this one just gave him a reason to joke with his fans.

The Puerto Rican star is still enjoying his vacation and getting ready for the launch of his upcoming studio album A Quien Quiero Escuchar (Who I Want to Listen To), to be released Feb. 10.
