Halle Berry might have never taken a ride on “Space Mountain” after all. The actress’ rep is denying claims made by Ric Flair that he once had a tryst with the Academy Award winner.
The wrestling legend made headlines when he said on a recent episode of the “Ric Flair Show” that Berry was one of several dozen celebrities that have ridden Space Mountain, which is a euphemism for sex with Flair.
“There is NO truth to this! Halle has literally never even heard of him let alone met him!!!” a source close to Berry told TMZ.
“A man doesn't get to sexualize and lie about a woman he's never met to better himself or his name,” a source said, claiming Berry didn't care for Flair’s comments. “It's offensive, demeaning and beyond misogynistic.”
Berry is currently married to French actor Olivier Martinez, though there have been rumors that they could be on the brink of a divorce. She’s been married twice before, and Flair says the encounter came after Berry divorced former Atlanta Braves outfielder David Justice.
“Do you want me to start with Halle Berry or what?” Flair said when asked to name a celebrity that he’d slept with. “Of course she did. She was in Atlanta and she just got divorced from David Justice.”
“Would I have to make up a lie?” Flair said asked if he was telling the truth.
If Flair isn’t lying, he and Berry likely got together in the late 1990s. Berry and Justice were officially divorced in 1997, and Flair wrestled for WCW, which was based in Atlanta. He was a mainstay with the company until it folded in 2001.
Flair was 48 years old in 1997, while Berry turned 31 that year. Flair was married from 1983-2006.
Flair’s sexual prowess was a big part of his wrestling gimmick, and he's well-known for being very similar to his in-ring character. He’s engaged to be married for the fifth time, having officially divorced his last wife in 2012.
