ric flair arrest order wendy girlfriend Ric Flair has arrest order issued for failure to pay spousal supportFormer professional wrestler “Nature Boy” Ric Flair has an arrest order out against him courtesy of a Charlotte, N.C. judge, reports the AP. The order stems from Flair’s failure to pay his estranged fourth wife Jacqueline Beems more than $32,000 in spousal support.

Flair (real name Richard Fliehr) was ordered to pay $4000/month to Beems when she filed for legal separation last summer. The court documents say he has not paid $32,352.51 following two court orders.

The documents further say that the arrest order was issued July 3 but that Flair can avoid jail time if he pays the money. Further, Beems was charged Tuesday (July 16) with making harassing phone calls to Flair’s current girlfriend, Wendy Barlow (pictured above with Flair). She was released on a $500 bond and her attorney says the charges are “unfounded and outlandish.”

Interestingly, Ric Flair just appeared on ABC’s “Celebrity Wife Swap,” though obviously not with his estranged wife, Beems. But he and girlfriend Wendy swapped lives with former pro wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and his wife, Kitty.

Kitty came to Flair’s Charlotte home, where he lives with Wendy and her four children and was take aback by the lavish lifestyle the Flair family lives, especially when one of the first things Ric did upon Kitty’s arrival was buy her an expensive piece of jewelry.

Nothing like demonstrating on national television that you could probably pay that $32,000.
