Just a few months after the devastating loss of his son, wrestling legend Ric Flair is dealing with more drama. This time, the recent alum of Celebrity Wife Swap is now facing an arrest warrant as he has failed to make his spousal support payments!
The “Nature Boy” Ric Flair is obviously still devastated with the loss of his son, which happened back in March, but should that be an excuse to skip out on his spousal support? Back in June, a judge found Flair guilty of not paying his post separation support and attorneys’ fees, as well as continuing payments for his ex-wife’s car lease, health insurance and car insurance, following the couple’s split. According to reports, Flair owes Jackie Beems, his fourth wife, something around $32K in spousal support, and a North Carlolina judge recently issued an arrest warrant for Flair if he doesn’t pay up.
The 64-year-old wrestling legend spoke to The Charlotte Observer about why he hasn’t paid up, and he definitely blames the death of his son as part of the reason. “The reason I didn’t pay the 32 grand is because my son died and I was in the hospital for a month. I was in the hospital for a month with a blood clot. I didn’t go to work for three months,” Flair said, claiming that he definitely plans on paying up soon. Flair’s 25-year-old son died back in March from a drug overdose.
