A judge has issued an arrest warrant for former WWE superstar Ric Flair.
Flair, real-name Richard Morgan Fliehr, has been ordered to pay $32,000 to his ex-wife Jacqueline Beems, but has not yet paid the spousal support.
The couple split last year and Flair was then told to pay Beems $4,000 a month, but the payment has not been forthcoming.
Flair, though, says that he was fully intending to pay the fee.
"The reason I didn't pay my ex-wife the 32 grand is because my son died and I was in the hospital for a month," the 64-year-old told the Charlotte Observer.
"I was in the hospital for a month with a blood clot. I didn't go to work for three months."
Flair's son died in March of this year after suffering a drug-overdose.
Flair is a WWE 'Hall of Famer' and has established himself as one of the biggest legends in WWE history - after he had a career spanning for 40 years in wrestling.
Flair had an incredible career in the wrestling industry, having many battles with wrestling legend Hulk Hogan - 'The Nature Boy' has made a number of returns to the WWE over the last decade.
