The “Nature Boy” Ric Flair has never been one to hold back words over his illustrious pro wrestling career spanning over 40 years. The “limousine riding, jet flying, kiss stealing, wheelin dealing, son-of-a-gun lived out his gimmick like no other, allowing fans to experience unchartered dynamics of his persona.
The luxurious life was not just an on-screen character for him. In fact, he and his colleagues – oftentimes Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, and Barry Windham – rode in the most expensive cars, stayed in the most expensive hotels, and wore the most expensive clothes.
The comradery translated through the stability of the faction, and how their chemistry made them one of the greatest of all time.
Over the years, many have desired for Ric Flair to tone his partying lifestyle and mentality down. Even at 67 years old, Flair can still be seen at clubs and living out the Nature Boy lifestyle, as well as drinking it up and exhibiting erratic behaviour, as displayed earlier this year at a Boston airport.
Seemingly, Flair is still very proud about the party lifestyle that has led him to multiple divorces and legal payments that forces him to stay in the wrestling business. In fact, he often touts about the amount of women he has slept with, and the amount of alcohol he has drank.
Perhaps one of the most outlandish claims Flair has made happened recently on his The Ric Flair Show podcast. Flair told the listeners that he slept with Emmy and Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry.
Flair claims that this occurred nearly 20 years ago in Atlanta in 1997, shortly after Berry divorced from then-baseball star David Justice. Of course, this generated a media firestorm, with many wondering if it was indeed true.
Berry’s publicist has responded to the accusation, stating that it is far from the truth. Sources close to Berry were outraged at this claim, and felt offended and sexualized on Berry’s behalf at what he said.
It appears that Flair was just trying to ruffle some feathers and stay in his gimmick during his podcast by stating that Berry rode on ‘Space Mountain’. Perhaps it was all in fun comedy, but the reactions by Berry’s camp has shown that the joke was totally one-sided, and a comment such as the one he made during his show should have never happened due to it being totally false, while Flair is allowing others to believe that it was true.
