Via TMZ: We reached out to Halle's camp for comment -- and they strongly shut down Flair's story as bogus.
Sources close to Halle expanded ... telling us, "There is NO truth to this! Halle has literally never even heard of him let alone met him!!!"
We're told Halle is deeply offended by Flair. One source put it this way ... "A man doesn't get to sexualize and lie about a woman he's never met to better himself or his name. It's offensive, demeaning and beyond misogynistic."
We'll have to wait to see what the Nature Boy has to say about it.
