RIC FLAIR'S FORMER MANAGER ANNOUNCES SHE IS FILING DEFAMATION LAWSUIT AGAINST WWE HALL OF FAMER

By Mike Johnson on 2019-06-11 09:02:00

Ric Flair's former manager, Melinda Morris Zanoni and her company, Legacy Talent announced last night that they have filed a civil lawsuit for defamation over a YouTube video released and later deleted by the WWE Hall of Famer.

In the video, Flair alleged that Zanoni had embezzled money from him, allowed trademarks to nearly lapse that and that he had documented proof of his claims, which Flair stated were made with the permission of his new legal representation:

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.”
