We all know that Ric Flair has been a limousine ridin’, jet flyin’, kiss stealin’, wheelin’ dealin’ son of a gun for decades, and part of that legacy is the laundry list of women he’s claimed to have slept with over the years, and also naming his genitals after a Disney attraction. That’s almost certainly part of the reason why he’s now engaged for the fifth time and most of his money has gone to alimony payments, but at any rate, on the latest edition of the Woooo! Nation podcast, Flair made the claim that an Academy Award-winning actress may have at one point fallen prey to the Nature Boy’s charms.
Here’s a transcript of Flair’s conversation with podcast co-host Conrad Thompson:
Conrad Thompson: Any celebrity riders of Space Mountain?
Ric Flair: Several dozen.
Thompson: Are we going to get any names?
Flair: Do you want me to start with Halle Berry?
Thompson: Oh! Halle Berry rode Space Mountain?
Flair: (Laughs) Of course she did. She was in Atlanta and she had just gotten divorced from Dave Justice.
Thomson: Wait, are you telling a real story right now?
Flair: Would I have to make up a lie?
A quick Internet search would place the alleged tryst somewhere around 1997, before Berry became a household name with her role in the X-Men films and her Oscar win for Monster’s Ball, when Flair was the relatively spritely age of 48. Berry has not (and likely will not) commented on Flair’s claims.
