Jackie Beems : Ric Flair’s Ex-Wife

American professional wrestling manager and retired professional wrestler signed to WWE under their Legends program, Ric Flair’s ex-wife is Jackie Beems. Ric Flair is considered as one of the greatest pro-wrestler of all times. Flair has a career of over more than forty years in WWE, that’s impressive right? Since the mid 1970s, he has used the moniker, the Nature Boy.

Well it’s not a hidden fact that this is not Ric Flair’s first marriage. Jackie is Ric’s fourth wife. It seems like Ric takes the name “dirtiest player in the game” too seriously in his personal life as well. Let’s first get to know about Ric’s previous marriages before coming to Jackie Beems. And before we get further, Ric has been divorced with Jackie also. Alas!


Ric’s Previous Marriages

Ric married his first wife, Leslie Goodman, on August 28, 1971. The couple had two children, daughter Megan and son David. After twelve years of marriage, the couple took a divorce in 1983.

After that Ric married his second wife in the same year. Her name was Elizabeth Harell. Ric and Elizabeth had two children together, daughter Ashley and son Reid. You might have known because of her periodic appearances in WCW between 1998 and 2000. When this marriage seemed to be running successful for nearly 23 years, the couple decided to part their ways. They divorced in 2006.

On May 27, 2006, Flair married his third wife Tiffany VanDemark. Tiffany is a fitness competitor. Shortly after the marriage, Tiffany filed for divorce from Flair in 2008 and they got separated in 2009.


Ric and Jackie

At this age we thought that Ric might finally settle with a lifetime partner. The couple got married on November 11, 2009 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Jackie’s full name is Jacqueline Beems.  Unfortunately after three years of marriage, complications started arising between them and they filed a divorce on September 3, 2012.


The Controversies

Though Ric started dating Barlow after Jackie, we are not going to discuss that. This article is  basically about Jacki and Ric, so lets stick to that.

We don’t know what exactly happened between the two as some sources even claim the stories to be false. Apparently, Ric accused his wife Jackie to be cruel, aggressive, and an alcoholic. She allegedly attacked Ric not once, but twice.

First time, Ric claims that she attacked him with a glass bottle on his forehead which left him bloodied on the scene. To this, Jackie says that she didn’t attack him and he came up with the story later to save himself from the alimony money. She says that Ric opened up his wrestling scars himself to make his troy believable.

The assault charges were dropped later due to lack of evidence.

In the second apparent attack, Jackie assaulted Ric in their Charlotte condo on June 25, 2012. Police arrived at the scene but no arrests were made and Ric’s injuries weren’t so serious which needed medical attention. No weapons were used in the attack, but Beems reportedly used her teeth, arms and legs. That’s insane!

Well anyway, these two are separated now and living their own lives peacefully.


Who do you think is telling the truth in the story?
