Ric Flair’s former manager, Melinda Morris Zanoni, and her company, Legacy Talent announced that they have filed a lawsuit against the two-time Hall of Famer for defamation via a recent YouTube video that Ric Flair had put out and has since deleted.
In the video, Ric Flair openly bashes his former representation and even says who is now representing him and dares his former representation to start a conflict.
The statement from Legacy reads as follows:
“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.”
