Where did Jerry Falwell Jr. go wrong? He had a prominent position that paid very well and a certain prestige among evangelical Christians. Falwell Jr. had what many would view as the ‘good life’. However, as Julie Roys’ writes ‘Suspended Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr., released a statement late last night to Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard, divulging that his wife had an affair with a young pool attendant the couple had befriended eight years ago.
Falwell said the “inappropriate personal relationship” was short-lived and that he and his wife “forgave each other.” But Falwell added that the affair was “very upsetting,” caused him to lose 80 pounds, “and people who saw me regularly thought that I was physically unwell.”
Falwell claimed that the young man— identified in multiple news reports as Giancarlo Granda, or the “pool boy”—also tried to extort money from the couple and Liberty University. Falwell added that recently Granda had stepped up his “threats to share more outrageous and fabricate(d) claims about us.” Falwell said he and his wife “decided the only way to stop this predatory behavior is to go public.”
The questionable relationship between the Falwells and Granda first surfaced last year. That’s when Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, told comedian Tom Arnold that he had buried racy “personal” photographs of the Falwells that involved the “pool boy.”
In his statement, Falwell said he was “not involved” in the personal relationship his wife, Becki, had with Granda.’https://julieroys.com/falwell-wife-affair-pool-attendant/?mc_cid=ebd64fb2ce&mc_eid=b13d34ad49
‘Earlier Monday, Reuters published a story, saying Falwell’s onetime business partner, Giancarlo Granda, a former pool attendant at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel had a six-year relationship that involved him having sex with Becki Falwell while Jerry Falwell looked on.
“Becki and I developed an intimate relationship and Jerry enjoyed watching from the corner of the room,” Granda said in the Reuters story.
The Falwells and Granda later became business partners and offered Granda a share in a Miami youth hostel.’https://julieroys.com/falwell-resigned-liberty/
