'They're freaks': Giancarlo Granda claims Jerry Falwell Jr liked to record him having sex with wife Becki
MIAMI, FLORIDA: Giancarlo Granda, who had an affair with Becki Falwell, the wife of Jerry Falwell Jr, revealed that the the former President of Liberty University used to record him while he was having sex with his wife.
The Miami businessman, who worked as a pool attendant at the ritzy Fontainebleau Hotel when he first met the couple in 2012, made the shocking revelation in a new Hulu documentary revolving around the life of the Falwell couple titled 'God Forbid: The Sex Scandal That Brought Down a Dynasty.'
The trailer of the documentary, which is due to release on November 1, captured Granda talking about how Falwell Jr "liked to record his wife having sex with him." "I know the truth about them, and the whole world is going to find out," Granda said, adding, "As a pool attendant, I would get hit on, but if I would have known that accepting this woman's invitation to go back to her hotel room would have led to a scandal involving the president of the largest Christian university in the world, and the president of the United States, I would have walked away and just enjoyed my private life."
The documentary is an attempt to shed more light on Granda's side of the story. "They have a public image, but behind the scenes, they're freaks. If they wanted to make me disappear, they could do it," Granda said.
Granda first met the couple in 2012 at the Miami hotel and got into a relationship with Becki when she was 44 and he was just 20. Granda revealed he was well aware of his relationship with Becki. He claimed they offered him to form a "throuple" – a polyamorous couple who invite a third person to join them in bed. Granda claimed that he has all the emails, text messages and other evidence reserved with him that showed the real face of the couple.
Granda stated that Jerry first intentionally watched him having sex with his wife in March 2012. "Becki and I developed an intimate relationship and Jerry enjoyed watching from the corner of the room," Granda told Reuters in 2020. However, Jerry told Vanity Fair that he was traumatized after seeing his spouse with another man in bed. Granda claimed that the encounters between him and Becki took place at hotels in Miami and New York and at the Falwells' home in Virginia.
The producer of the documentary, Billy Corben, said that further details about the couple would be revealed in the program. "We watched this play out in real time a couple of years ago and thought we knew the whole story. But if you think this is just a salacious sex scandal involving a former pool boy and the president and first lady of the largest Christian university in the world, you don't know the half of it," Corben said, according to The Daily Mail.
"We hope the takeaway is: leaders who want to impose their moral beliefs on others often have the most skeletons in their closet. Now more than ever, people in power and those seeking office seem to live by the motto, 'Do as I say, not as I do,'" Corveb added.
The documentary doesn’t include the Falwell couple but when People asked Becki about her views on the claims made by Granda, she said, "This is not correct." She went on to refer to the comments she made in an interview with Vanity Fair. "I had a big Canon camera. A couple of times I put it on the dresser and Giancarlo agreed to it," Becki said as per the publication. Back in 2017, Becki also claimed that Granda forced her to have sex with him in her 25-year-old daughter Caroline's bed after she had ceased staying in touch with him. "He said he wanted to have sex and I said, 'No, no, no.' I kept saying no. I didn't want to do it. But I was scared to death of him too because he was still holding everything over me, so we had sex. He left and I went into the room and just cried. I said no. Just because we had sex before does not mean he has a free ticket to my body," Becki said.
Adding another allegation to their list, Jerry revealed Granda devised an extortion plot and demanded $2M to keep the affair secret. This revelation also led to the resignation of Jerry from his position as President and Chancellor of Liberty University in August 2020.
Becki revealed that the couple had moved on in their lives. "We're together more than any couple you will ever meet in your life. He forgave me, and that's what Jesus teaches, forgiveness," Becki said.
