Business Partner of Falwells Says Affair with Evangelical Power Couple Spanned Seven Years

posted on August 24, 2020

Reuters’ Aram Roston reports, “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.” The article builds on previous reporting that noted Granda and the Falwells had a business relationship after opening a hostel in Miami. Falwell, who is on leave from Liberty University, issued a statement to the Washington Examiner on Sunday night, “in which he said that his wife had had an affair with Granda and that Granda had been trying to extort money from the couple over the matter. Granda denies any such intent, saying he was seeking to negotiate a buyout from a business arrangement he says he had with the couple.”
