67-year-old WWE legend Ric Flair set to get married -- for the 5th time

20 July 2016 / 3 months 1 week ago

The 67-year-old wrestling legend is set to tie the knot again after popping the question to his former WCW manager Wendy Barlow, aka Fifi the Maid, website Pro Wrestling Sheet reports.

Wendy has reportedly been showing off her huge engagement ring during her recent public appearances.

In 2012, Ric's fourth wife, Jacqueline Beems, filed for separation and accused the sportsman of cheating on her. 

In response to Jacqueline's divorce proceedings, Ric asked a judge for a protective order after claiming she was an alcoholic who beat him on several occasions.

The WWE Hall of Famer accused her of being a ''cruel'' woman who attacked him on numerous occasions when drunk, once smashing a glass object across his forehead, ''cutting him severely''.

Ric - whose real name is Richard Fliehr - claimed the injury, caused in February 2010, was so bad he needed medical attention.

Almost a year after they separated, an arrest warrant was issued for Ric after he allegedly failed to make payments of $4,000 a month to his estranged wife.

His warrant was issued a day after Jacqueline was arrested and charged for making harassing phone calls to Wendy. She was let free on $500 bail.

Ric claimed he had missed the payments after a tough time in his personal life, including finding his son Reid dead after a drugs overdose.

He previously said: "The reason I didn't pay my ex-wife the $32,000 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."

Ric married his first wife, Leslie Goodman, in 1971 and they had two children, Megan and David, before divorcing in 1983.

Later that year, he tied the knot with Beth Harrell, the mother of his daughter Ashley - a wrestler now known as Charlotte whom Rick appears on WWE television with as her manager - and Reid. 

They divorced in 2006, and he married Tiffany VanDemark that same year, but they split after just two years of marriage. He wed Jacqueline in 2009.
