Last week, Ric Flair went on a huge rampage against his former manager. On the now deleted Youtube Video, Flair accused Melinda Morris Zanoni, his former manager, of stealing his money and letting his trademarks almost lapse. Zanoni has since responded with a lawsuit.
Legacy’s official statement reads:
“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.”
