Jerry Falwell Jr. has resigned as president of Liberty University
This one is a bit of a he said, she said, in both accounts Becki Falwell was boinking the pool boy. The first is Jerry Falwell’s version of events.
Jerry Falwell Jr. says a “fatal attraction” threat to expose an affair his wife had with a pool boy eight years ago triggered an emotional roller coaster before he was suspended as president of Liberty University. The Christian school on Friday said it was investigating “rumors and claims” about Falwell, who was put on leave after a photo of him with his pants unzipped surfaced. “I’m just tired of it,” Falwell told the Washington Examiner as he released a long statement about the infidelity by wife Becki. “It’s just got to end.”
In the statement, Falwell Jr. says he forgave Becki for the affair. He did not name the pool boy, but numerous news outlets have written about the couple’s friendship with Miami pool attendant Giancarlo Granda and a real estate venture with him. Falwell claimed that over time, the man “became increasingly angry and aggressive” and “began threatening to publicly reveal this secret relationship with Becki and to deliberately embarrass my wife, family, and Liberty University unless we agreed to pay him substantial monies.” Falwell added, “We were doing our best to respectfully unravel this ‘fatal attraction’ type situation to protect our family and the University.” The Daily Beast was unable to contact Granda.
Giancarlo Granda (Pool Boy) says his sexual relationship with the Falwells began when he was 20!
Says he had a years-long sexual relationship involving Falwell’s wife and the evangelical leader
Giancarlo Granda says he was 20 when he met Jerry and Becki Falwell while working as a pool attendant at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel in March 2012. Starting that month and continuing into 2018, Granda told Reuters that the relationship involved him having sex with Becki Falwell while Jerry Falwell looked on.
Granda showed Reuters emails, text messages and other evidence that he says demonstrate the sexual nature of his relationship with the couple, who have been married since 1987. “Becki and I developed an intimate relationship and Jerry enjoyed watching from the corner of the room,” Granda said in an interview. Now 29, he described the liaisons as frequent – “multiple times per year” – and said the encounters took place at hotels in Miami and New York, and at the Falwells’ home in Virginia.
