Ric Flair Is Suing For His ’30 For 30′ Money
According to the legendary Ric Flair, he was supposed to come out with $25,000 for his 30 For 30 special on ESPN, but his manager allegedly pocketed the money, so he’s out for legal justice. The Nature Boy is suing Legacy Talent and Entertainment, which is the management company he used from 2009 until October 2017, once he found out that he was being scammed out of his funds.
According to TMZ, Flair says he had a feeling some risky business was going on behind the scenes, causing him to hire a lawyer in order to investigate his finances– that’s when Flair realized that he was missing huge amounts of money. The champ says he learned that Legacy Talent had received $25,000 from First Row Films, the production company behind Flair’s “30 for 30” special– of which Flair claims he was never even informed of, nor was he given his cut of the money.
That missing cash wasn’t the only thing being kept from Ric, apparently he also noticed a $12,000 royalty advance from Jake’s Fireworks, a company he signed an endorsement deal with earlier this year. Flair says he contacted Legacy to find out why he never got the money, and they told him they were using the funds to pay his legal bills–but he insists that he never authorized Legacy to do that.
The Rolex-wearing Ric Flair says he’s owed at least $46,000, and he wants his money back now.
