Ric Flair is a living legend, and he recently made his return to WWE programming when he congratulated his daughter Charlotte Flair on her big title win this week on SmackDown Live. Flair has been getting a lot of publicity lately following his recent health scare, and his 30 For 30 documentary special on ESPN has been receiving rave reviews.
Things seem to be going well for Ric Flair at the moment, well for the most part anyway. TMZ reports that Ric Flair is currently pursuing legal action against his former management company Legacy Talent and Entertainment, and he’s accusing the company of stealing money from him.
According to the report, Ric Flair was supposed to earn $25,000 from the 30 For 30 documentary, but his manager stole the money. It’s worth noting that Flair did part ways with Legacy Talent and Entertainment back in October.
Flair learned that Legacy received $25,000 from First Row Films, and he was never informed about the payment. Flair never received his cut, and he also noticed a $12,000 advance royalty from a sponsorship with Jake’s Fireworks that he never received.
After reaching out the company to find out where the money went, Legacy claimed it was being used to pay legal bills, but Flair never authorized them to do so.
It sounds like Ric Flair made the right decision when he decided to drop Legacy and take on a new management company.
