Legal reps released a statement on behalf of Legacy Talent & Entertainment, LLC and Melinda Morris Zanoni in response to allegations that Zanoni embezzled money from Ric Flair:
Statement on behalf of Legacy Talent and Entertainment, LLC and Melinda Zanoni:
Today we have taken the first step and filed a Civil Lawsuit against Richard M. Fliehr a/k/a as Ric Flair and certain unnamed (for now) defendants for defamation per se and look forward to proving the falsity of every wrongful allegation contained in his video that was posted on YouTube on June 3, 2019. Ric Flair having taken down the video is not enough.
We will vigorously use the court system to protect our good names and reputations, and obtain damages due to Ric Flair's defamatory comments contained in the video. We intend to amend the lawsuit to include all involved parties and hold all involved accountable.
We completely stand behind our client's well known reputation for truthfulness, professionalism, honor, and integrity.
In the deleted video, Flair stated:
ď20 years friendship, 10 years my agent. Not a text, you didnít drive down to the hospital. You just didnít give a sh*t. And you assumed I was gonna die, like a lot of people did. And you just grabbed all the money you could run with.Ē
