Who is Becki Falwell? Wife of disgraced Liberty Uni leader made SEX TAPES with pool boy
Becki Falwell, 57, the wife of former vice president of university operations at Liberty University, Jerry Falwell Jr, revealed in a tell-all interview on Monday that she used to make sex tapes with a 30-year-old pool boy, identified as Giancarlo Granda.
'I had a big Canon camera. A couple of times I put it on the dresser and Giancarlo agreed to it,' Becki, 54, said in the interview with Vanity Fair. Giancarlo Granda, the former Miami pool boy, claimed he had a nearly seven-year love affair with Falwell's wife, Becki, and that Jerry enjoyed watching them have sex. Giancarlo went on a national media tour, giving interviews to ABC News, CNN, Reuters, Politico, and The Washington Post, claiming that the Falwells began "grooming" him when he was just 20-year-old. They also bought his silence with luxury vacations, rides on Liberty's private jet, and a stake in a Miami Beach hostel management company. Jerry confirmed Becki and Giancarlo's relationship in a statement, but he categorically denied seeing the sexual encounters. Instead, when Giancarlo demanded $2 million to keep the romance quiet, Jerry claimed he was the victim of an extortion attempt.

Becki stated in an interview with Vanity Fair that notifying her husband, Jerry Falwell Jr., and two lawyers about the 'traumatic occurrence,' which she now believes was a form of assault, took months. The most entangled was Giancarlo, and his relationship with the Falwells was deteriorating. Giancarlo was secretly recording their chats, Becki suspected, in order to acquire dirt. (One of the phone tapes was later given to a Reuters reporter by Giancarlo.) "We didn't think we could trust him," Becki told Vanity Fair. Jerry and Becki suspected Giancarlo could have shared or sold the naked photographs because Becki had texted them to him.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Jerry says he found out about the affair eight months after he and Becki first met Giancarlo. Becki seemed distant and melancholy in December 2012 for reasons Jerry couldn't fathom. Jerry said, "I would see her crying around the house." Jerry walked in on Becki in tears in their bedroom a few days after Christmas. He inquired as to why she was gloomy. Becki explained, "Because of the trouble I've made for you." On the other hand, Giancarlo told Vanity Fair that his version of events would become clear in a planned book and Hulu series about his time with the couple.
On Twitter, everyone appeared to have an opinion on the Falwell couple. One of the tweet read, "Jerry Falwell, Jr. blames everyone for his problems except himself. He’s definitely an evangelical."
