Halle Berry’s representative blasts Ric Flair sex boast

A representative for Halle Berry has shut down reports suggesting she slept with veteran wrestler Ric Flair in the late 1990s.
The 67-year-old WWE legend recently boasted about his alleged fling with Berry, 50, on his U.S. radio programme, The Ric Flair Show, after claiming he had bedded “several dozen” Hollywood stars during his heyday.
“She was in Atlanta and just got divorced from David Justice,” Flair said.
Asked by co-host Conrad Thompson if the story was really true, the retired athlete replied, “Would I have to make up a lie?”
However, the Oscar winner’s spokesperson has firmly dismissed Flair’s comments about his sexual exploits, telling TMZ.com the tryst never happened.
A source close to the actress adds, “There is NO truth to this! Halle has literally never even heard of him let alone met him!!!”
“A man doesn’t get to sexualise and lie about a woman he’s never met to better himself,” another insider tells the outlet. “It’s offensive, demeaning and beyond misogynistic.”
Berry separated from former baseball player Justice in 1996, after three years of marriage, and their divorce was finalised in 1997 – when Flair was still married to his second wife, Elizabeth. They called it quits in 2006, after nearly 23 years of marriage.
The Monster’s Ball beauty went on to wed singer Eric Benet, and she is currently in the midst of a divorce from her third husband, French actor Olivier Martinez, who she split from last year (15) after two years of marriage. The estranged couple shares son Maceo, who will turn three on Wednesday (05Oct16).
She also dated French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, the father of her eight-year-old daughter Nahla, from 2005 to 2010.
