Ric Flair has filed a lawsuit against his former management company Legacy Talent and Entertainment claiming that his manager stole the $25,000 he was owed for the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary.
TMZ reports that Legacy Talent received $25,000 from First Row Films, the company behind the production of the ESPN special, and Flair felt “something fishy was going down” and hired a lawyer to investigate his finances reports TMZ.COM. That’s when he found out that the 25 grand that First Row Films sent for him never made it to his accounts and he was never notified that the payment was done.
Flair told TMZ that he’s owed at least $46,000 from Legacy Talent, including a $12,000 royalty advance from Jake’s Fireworks for an endorsement deal with earlier this year. Legacy Talent apparently told Flair that they have been using those money to pay legal bills, something that he never authorized anyone at the management agency to do.
