Yesterday, WWE wrestler and human before & after photo Ric Flair sent relative shockwaves throughout the pop culture world when he claimed that he banged out Halle Berry back in the ’90s. Unsurprisingly, Berry was having none of it.
After Flair claimed that Berry was one of the “dozens” of celebrities to “ride Space Mountain” (Flair’s euphemism for sex), Berry was quick to release a counter-statement saying that Flair’s comments are false.
We reached out to Halle’s camp for comment — and they strongly shut down Flair’s story as bogus.
Sources close to Halle expanded … telling us, “There is NO truth to this! Halle has literally never even heard of him let alone met him!!!”
We’re told Halle is deeply offended by Flair. One source put it this way … “A man doesn’t get to sexualize and lie about a woman he’s never met to better himself or his name. It’s offensive, demeaning and beyond misogynistic.”
I’ve got a couple thoughts:
First: Flair calling sex with himself ‘riding Space Mountain’ is just a varsity move. Love it.
Second: When I first heard this rumor, I also had my doubts. Berry was one of the biggest stars of the ’90s, and Ric Flair is Ric Flair. The logisitics just don’t add up.
Third: He was pretty quick to name drop Berry. Like, he either always lies about banging Halle Berry, or he’s telling the truth, because there is no way he would just throw her name out there randomly.
So ,what do you guys think? Did Flair slide his Nature Boy in Berry’s Swordfish? I want to believe this rumor so bad that I’m going to ignore the fact that Flair is probably lying and just roll with it.
