A judge has issued an arrest warrant for pro wrestler Ric Flair for failing to pay spousal support.

The WWE star is said to owe his ex-wife Jacqueline Beems over $32,000 (£21,000).

He was ordered to pay $4,000 (£2,600) a month to Beems after she filed for separation last year.

The money was intended to go towards her car payments, health insurance and legal fees. Court documents reportedly state that the wrestler can avoid jail time if he pays what he owes.

Flair told the Charlotte Observer that he intends to pay the money, saying: "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.

"I was in the hospital for a month with a blood clot. I didn't go to work for three months."

Flair's son Reid, 25, was found dead in a hotel room in March. According to the autopsy, he died due to a combination of prescription drugs and heroin.

Beems is currently facing her own legal troubles, having recently turned herself in to police over allegations of making a harassing phone call to Flair's current girlfriend Wendy Kidder. Beems's lawyer has described the allegations as "unfounded and outlandish".
