The Latest on Flair's Ex-Wife Issues

The Baxter Bulletin has picked up on the story of Ric Flair being ordered to go to jail if he fails to pay his ex-wife spousal support money, and the following is an article excerpt, noting that Flair has yet to pay the $32,000 he owes to Jaqueline Beems:

An attorney for the estranged wife of former pro wrestling star Ric Flair said Wednesday she still was awaiting more than $32,000 in support payments. Flair is under order from a North Carolina judge to make the payments or go to jail.

"He would purge himself of having to go to jail if he would pay the check, if he would pay in full the total amount he owes, up to date," said Brad Smith, attorney for Jacqueline Beems, Flair's fourth wife.

Flair, 64, told TheCharlotte Observer Tuesday that he planned to pay Beems on Wednesday.

"The reason I didn't pay the 32 grand is because my son died and I was in the hospital for a month. I was in the hospital for a month with a blood clot. I didn't go to work for three months," said Flair, whose legal name, Richard Fliehr, appears on court documents.
