WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has filed a lawsuit against his former manager Legacy Talent and Entertainment over claims they stole $25,000 that he was supposed to get for the recently aired ESPN "30 For 30" documentary that aired last week, according to a TMZ report.
Flair discovered he was out of pocket when he had a lawyer look over his finances and it was discovered the money was missing. Flair was managed by Legacy Talent from 2009 until October 2017.
Legacy has responded in a statement to TMZ, state that "Ric Flair has always been known to be dramatic and looking desperately for the spotlight. That’s fine as a wrestler but it is despicable when he blatantly lies."
They added "As anyone who read [the Ric Flair Grantland article] knows, Ric has always left a trail of destruction in his wake whether it be from his ex wives, the IRS, State Departments of Revenue, creditors, or from his former business partners and friends… the debris is everywhere."
Below is their account of the story:
"Our client provided Flair an accounting of funds as they always did throughout their representation. Flair then demanded funds that belonged to buyers be released from trust that he had not yet earned and our client would not be bullied into doing anything unethical. In reality the $37,000 in dispute are in his management company’s trust account while we were working out a settlement on the sums of money owed our client from deals and money Flair hid from his management."
