However, Ric Flair in an interview with a leading international tabloid rubbished the reports, as he stated that he is doing good, and it’s his wife Wendy Barlow who has been tested positive for the global pandemic.
Ric Flair in an interview with New York Post said, “That is absolutely incorrect, My wife does [have the virus]… we live in a 5,000 square foot home. I live in the basement. She lives upstairs on the third floor and she got sick.”
The same portal also further mentioned that Ric Flair hung up on them before they could ask more questions about spotting him at Starbucks in Georgia without having a mask on. But later the 71-year-old texted them that his “health is excellent.”
