Reuters News just dropped a bombshell concerning suspended Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr., and his wife, Becki.
The media outlet says the affair that Becki Falwell carried on with former “pool boy,” Giancarlo Granda, spanned seven years, according to Granda. Granda also reportedly told Reuters that the relationship involved Granda having sex with Becki Falwell while Jerry Falwell watched.
According to Reuters, Granda produced emails, text messages, and other evidence showing the sexual nature of his relationship with the couple.
In a statement released last night, Jerry Falwell said his wife and Granda had an “inappropriate personal relationship,” but added that it was “something in which I was not involved.”
However, Reuters says it verified a screenshot of a FaceTime conversation between Becki Falwell and Granda in 2019 in which Becki appeared naked as Jerry peeked from behind a door.

Reuters also said that Granda shared an audio recording that allegedly took place with the Falwells in 2018. In it, Becki reportedly complained about Granda telling her about his relationships with other people. “He’s like telling me every time he hooks up with people. Like I don’t have feelings or something,” Becki said. Reportedly Jerry responded, “You’re going to make her jealous.” And Granda replied, “I’m not trying to do that.”
Liberty University’s Board of Trustees have placed Falwell on an indefinite leave of absence following a racy photo and video Falwell posted online and then deleted. The board had a special meeting last Friday, but did not decide whether or not to permanently remove the embattled president and chancellor of the school.
