The sex scandal involving Jerry Falwell Jr., one of the country’s most prominent evangelicals, is getting more bizarre by the minute. The scandal broke after it was reported that he and his wife had together been sexually involved with a pool attendant they befriended in Miami.
Falwell described the claim as an extortion plot of “increasingly threatening behavior” straight out of Fatal Attraction.
That pool attendant, Giancarlo Granda, told a different story. And he said he had text messages, phone calls and photos to back him up.
Granda, who had a long-term sexual relationship with Falwell’s wife, Becki, told Politico: “During my work shift at the Fontainebleau Hotel in March 2012, I was chatting with some girls my age (20 at the time),” Granda recalled speaking to Politico. “Becki said, ‘Those girls don’t know what they’re doing, you need someone with more experience.’”
Granda recalled Becki suggesting they go to the Falwell’s hotel room.
“And then she goes, ‘But one thing.’ And I’m like, “Okay.’ And she’s like, ‘My husband likes to watch.’ And just then he comes out and he’s wearing a Speedo,” said Granada.
“He enjoyed watching us in person and also remotely through video cameras. He also listened to our phone calls,” Granda said. He wouldn’t answer how much of his relationship was without Jerry Falwell participating.
