Earlier this week, Ric Flair was answering a podcast listener’s question about whether any celebrity women had ever ridden Space Mountain — Flair’s euphemism for sex in promos past — and he answered that there had been several dozen and that he had slept with Halle Berry. The answer was oddly specific — he said it was in Atlanta, where WCW was based in the 90’s, shortly after the actress and David Justice got divorced. Asked by his co-host if he was being serious or joking, Flair indicated the former.
On Tuesday, TMZ asked Halle Berry’s reps if this story was true, and received an emphatic denial:
We reached out to Halle’s camp for comment — and they strongly shut down Flair’s story as bogus. Sources close to Halle expanded … telling us, “There is NO truth to this! Halle has literally never even heard of him let alone met him!!!”
We’re told Halle is deeply offended by Flair. One source put it this way … “A man doesn’t get to sexualize and lie about a woman he’s never met to better himself or his name. It’s offensive, demeaning and beyond misogynistic.”
