A judge has issued an arrest order for former NWA, WCW & WWF World Champion Ric Flair for not paying his estranged wife more than $32,000 in spousal support.
The Charlotte Observer reports that Flair was ordered to pay $4,000 a month to Jacqueline Beems, who filed for a legal separation last summer. Court documents say Flair didn't pay $32,352.51 following two court orders.
Flair says he hasn't paid due to a blood clot that kept him in the hospital for a month and out of work for 3 months as well as the death of his son, Reid, who was found dead in a hotel in April. Flair can avoid jailtime if he pays up.
Beems was charged Tuesday with making a harassing phone call. She's accused of making a series of calls to Flair's girlfriend. Flair says the calls and texts numbered more than 50.
Beems was released on a $500 unsecured bond, and her attorney calls the charges "unfounded and outlandish."
