Ric Flair claims during an upcoming ESPN 30 for 30 documentary he’s slept with around 10,000 women throughout his life.
On Tuesday, Elissa Rosen of People passed along comments from the 68-year-old star, who says now he wishes he hadn’t made that admission public for the project.
“What I said was the truth, but I feel bad now that I said some of it. Ten thousand women,” Flair said. “I wish I hadn’t said that because of my grandkids.”
Flair has been married and divorced four times. He told Rosen his ways have changed since meeting Wendy Barlow, his fiancee, and that he’s become a “one-woman guy.”
“I only love one now,” he said. “I have never done anything since I met Wendy.”
Flair credits Barlow for helping him change his hard-living ways, and she has been by his side since he was rushed to an Atlanta-area hospital on Aug. 11 and spent time in a medically-induced coma after being told he was on the verge of congestive heart failure.
“It’s going to be a hard sell overnight to say that ‘Hey, Ric Flair has changed,” he says. “It’s going to take time, it’s going to take proof.”
But after reconnecting with Barlow, Flair insists his playboy ways have subsided.
“But it’s still hard for me not to be me,” he says. “But I’m really focused on getting well and just enjoying my life with Wendy.”
Barlow responded to Flair’s claim on Facebook with the following.
