In the latest episode of ‘Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson’, WWE legend Ric Flair sat down with Mike Tyson and his guests. While on air, he answered how his in-ring persona impacted his real life.

Unfortunately, everything I said, I pretty much lived. It’s the…truth. Married and divorced four times. Two or maybe 2.8 million in alimony, and which means 2 million in lawyer fees, you know. You know what it is. It’s a game,” said Flair.

Flair’s four ex-wives are Leslie Goodman, Elizabeth Harrell (mother of Charlotte Flair), Tiffany VanDemark, and Jacqueline Beems, and there is a fifth he did not officially marry as well.

Moreover, he spoke about not being able to be a household person, as a likely reason for his failed relationships.

Yeah, I mean, even to this day, I just have a tough time settling down. Does that sound right? When you have lived the day of your life traveling, and living in hotels, even though I’ve had 11000 square foot homes and s**t like that. Even to this day, I’ve got friends. I just like to hang out. I don’t have to go dancing or go to a nightclub. But I get to hang out and socialize,” the WWE Hall of Famer added.

Ric Flair recently split from his fifth wife

The Naitch’s fifth wife was Wendy Barlow, whom he has been friends with since his WCW days. Barlow used to accompany Flair as ‘Fifi the French maid’ and played a part in his rivalry with Rick Rude.

They started dating in 2013 and got married in 2018. But just like his other four failed relationships, this one did not last as well. Flair and Barlow parted ways in January 2022, according to their social media.

Nevertheless, Ric Flair did not officially marry Wendy Barlow, and thus, they didn’t have to go through a legal divorce. Also, he had complained during his Ric Flair WOOOOO Nation podcast that nobody from WWE called him after his split from Barlow.
