Earlier this week, WWE legend Ric Flair made some pretty X-rated claims about Hollywood actress Halle Berry.
Flair, who the LA Times once praised as the greatest pro-wrestler of all time, made his ‘confession’ during a recent episode of his podcast The Ric Flair Show, where he claimed Berry had accepted an invitation ‘to ride Space Mountain’ back before she was famous.
For those unfamiliar with the term ‘Space Mountain’, this is apparently the word that the 16-time world champion uses to describe his penis.
But on Tuesday, the Oscar-winning actress denied that they had ever had a fling. Her publicist told Fox News: “His claims are not true.”
Sources ‘close to Berry’ told TMZ there is ‘no truth to this’, with Berry not even having ‘heard of him, let alone met him’.
Another source said: “A man doesn’t get to sexualise and lie about a woman he’s never met to better himself or his name. It’s offensive, demeaning and beyond misogynistic.”
But Flair insists his claims are true. After claiming he had slept with ‘several dozen’ stars, he said: “She was in Atlanta and just got divorced from David Justice.”
When asked by his co-host Conrad Thompson if he was making the story up, Flair replied: “Would I have to make up a lie?”
If true, the fling would have occured in the 1990s when Flair was married to his second wife. He is currently engaged to a woman who would be his fifth
While some are claiming Flair has nothing to gain by lying, it’s clear his claims have garnered him quite a bit of publicity.
