Ric Flair has left Hollywood and the wider wrestling community stunned after claiming he once bedded Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry.
The Nature Boy made the shock revelations during an episode of The Ric Flair Show in which one fan tweeted in to ask if any celebrities had ever ridden the “Space Mountain” – Flair’s rather affectionate nickname for doing the naughty.
Flair went on to claim he had carnal relations with Berry when the actress was living in Atlanta in the 1990s.
“Of course she did. She was in Atlanta and just got divorced from David Justice,” he told listeners.
Quizzed by co-host Conrad Thompson on whether he was telling the truth about sleeping with one of the sexiest women in the world, Flair refused to back down.
“Would I have to make up a lie?” The Nature Boy replied.
Berry was apparently not the only one to fall for the charms of Flair and his penchant for shouting “wooo!” at any and all opportunities.
Prior to her star turn as Storm in the X-Men and, later, her work on Monster’s Ball, Berry certainly did endure something of a down phase in the 1990s.
Though far from confirmed, it would appear that her regrets from that period may extend way beyond The Flintstones Movie.
