Ric Flair’s former agent has filed a defamation lawsuit against Flair over claims he made about her in a recent video. Flair claimed Zanoni had embezzled money from him and accused her of sending a threatening phone call to his wife.
Legacy Talent and Entertainment, LLC and Melinda Zanoni issued the following statement:
Today we have taken the first step and filed a Civil Lawsuit against Richard M. Fliehr a/k/a as Ric Flair and certain unnamed (for now) defendants for defamation per se and look forward to proving the falsity of every wrongful allegation contained in his video that was posted on YouTube on June 3, 2019. Ric Flair having taken down the video is not enough.
We will vigorously use the court system to protect our good names and reputations, and obtain damages due to Ric Flair’s defamatory comments contained in the video. We intend to amend the lawsuit to include all involved parties and hold all involved accountable.
We completely stand behind our client’s well known reputation for truthfulness, professionalism, honor, and integrity.
