Becki Falwell: I Deny Having Sex With The Pool Boy While My Husband Watched
In an interview with The Washington Post, Becki Falwell, the wife of former Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr., confirmed that she had an affair but denied that her husband watched her have sex with another man.
Jerry Falwell told The Post on Tuesday that he had not been involved in an affair, but his wife had; Becki Falwell, in the same interview, confirmed that account. Falwell said he was leaving Liberty in part because he did not want his wife’s conduct to embarrass the school. But he also said he had been bored and wanted to move on.
- The Falwells have found themselves caught up in a scandal after Giancarlo Granda went public with claims that he had an affair with Beckie Falwell over a period of seven years — and that Jerry Falwell sometimes liked to watch, either in person or on tape.
- Granda, who “met the Falwells at a pool in Florida years ago and has been involved in business and social dealings with them for much of the last decade,” said the affair began in 2012 after first meeting with the couple. He was 20 years old and a pool attendant at a hotel at the time.
- Jerry Falwell has claimed that Granda used the affair to extort money from him.
- Becki Falwell told The Post, “I wish Christians, and people, would be as forgiving as Christ was.”
