According to PW Insider, the ongoing lawsuit filed by Riki Paul Johnson against his former wife Charlotte Flair, her father Ric Flair, writer Brian Shields, and the WWE has been resolved. Johnson’s attorneys filed a Notice of Resolution with the District Court of North Carolina and stating that all sides are close to a settlement. The original lawsuit by Johnson was in regards to the book Second Nature, which he claimed contained false statements about his life, including alleged drug use that lost him a job, and multiple allegations of physical and and/or psychological abuse towards Charlotte. (She wrote the book with her father Ric, and Brian Shields.)
WWE released this statement when Johnson’s suit was filed last year.
We recently received what appears to be a meritless lawsuit and we will vigorously defend ourselves.
