WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has confirmed that he has separated from his wife Wendy Barlow.

In a statement posted on social media, Ric Flair announced that he and his wife have decided to go their separate ways. Flair explained that after taking time apart the couple had made the decision to split. He added that he will always be thankful to Wendy for all she did to make his life better.

After Taking Some Time Apart, Wendy And I Have Decided To Go Our Separate Ways. Please Respect Our Privacy & Our Families During This Time! I Will Love & Cherish All Of Our Memories Together Forever, And I Will Forever Be Thankful For All She Has Done To Make My Life Better!

Flair and Barlow had a long history, having previously worked together while the 16-time World Champion was with WCW. During this period, Barlow played the character of “Fifi” a French maid.

However, the couple didn’t begin their relationship until many years later, getting engaged in 2016. The pair got married on September 12th 2018.

Before his marriage to Barlow, Flair had been married four times.

Ric Flair left WWE in August 2021, claiming that his exit was due to creative differences. In a statement addressing his release, Flair said that he and WWE had a “different vision” for his future.

At the time, Flair claimed that there was no animosity between himself and WWE although that recently appears to have changed. Commenting on his release on his Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast, Flair said that WWE President Nick Khan had buried him and made the situation personal. In addition, he hit out at the company for not making the most of the ‘Flair’ name.
