Halle Berry has revealed she's "literally never even heard of" Ric Flair, despite the WWE legend's bizarre claims of having had sex with her roughly 20 years ago. Flair unleashed the allegations during a weird AF discussion on a recent episode of the Ric Flair Show podcast. According to Flair, Berry is one of "dozens" of celebrities who have taken a trip to the so-called "Space Mountain."
When TMZ reached out to someone from Berry's crew, they were quick to call out Flair's Space Mountain story as utter bullshit. "There is NO truth to this!" an insider insisted Tuesday. "Halle has literally never even heard of him let alone met him!!!" In fact, the Academy Award-winning actress is reportedly "deeply offended" by the nature of Flair's comments in general.
"A man doesn't get to sexualize and lie about a woman he's never met to better himself or his name," a source told TMZ. "It's offensive, demeaning, and beyond misogynistic."
Flair's original claim was spurred by a fan's inquiry as to whether any notable celebs had taken a Space Mountain ride, to which Flair offered this: "Do you want me to start with Halle Berry or what?" Flair said. When understandably pressed by Ric Flair Show co-host Conrad Thompson about the validity of such a claim, Flair spilled some alleged details. "She was in Atlanta and she had just gotten divorced from Dave Justice," Flair explained. Berry divorced Justice, a former Major League Baseball star, in 1997 after roughly five years of marriage.
