Why is Ric Flair’s net worth only $500,000?

Fans are left in awe when they discover the jaw-dropping net worth of Ric Flair, a beloved figure in combat sports. Numerous factors played a role in his relatively lower net worth, with his extravagant lifestyle being a major contributor. From his dating habits to splurging on his girlfriends, Flair’s penchant for luxury has certainly made an impact.

Later he got into trouble for not paying taxes and In 2000, the IRS revealed he owed the government $870,000 in unpaid taxes, and the government started to take a major share from his WWE income to recover the losses.

Another reason revealed was, as Ric Flair said, that his second wife used to overspend his money. Flair was then again found guilty of not paying taxes from 2016 to 2019. And was asked to compensate for losses.

The same year Flair suffered a heart attack, his treatment was not covered by his insurance and the bill was around 1.8 million dollars.
