Miami “pool boy” Giancarlo Granda told Fox News this week that Jerry Falwell Jr., a prominent evangelical leader and supporter of President Donald Trump, and his wife Becki have “have been relentlessly harassing me and people close to me,” after revealing Jerry “enjoyed watching from the corner of the room” while he had sex with Becki.
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 last month that the relationship involved him having sex with Becki while Jerry Falwell looked on from the corner of the room.
“Becki [Falwell] approached me and invited me back to their hotel room to have sex while Jerry watched,” Granda told Fox News. “After that night, Becki actively pursued me.”
“Becki and I developed an intimate relationship and Jerry enjoyed watching from the corner of the room,” he said.
Since the scandal broke last month, Granda claims the Falwells “have been relentlessly harassing me and people close to me,” and said Falwell will do whatever it takes to make sure he doesn’t spill any more secrets.
Granda said that while the alleged threats and intimidation tactics might have worked in the past, he’s had enough and wants to come clean.
“He has shared text messages, emails and photos with Fox News that appear to back up his allegations and, at the very least, show the Falwells breaking Liberty’s code of conduct on multiple occasions,” the outlet reports.
“Their lavish lifestyle consisted of heavy drinking and going to nightclubs, which is strictly prohibited by the honor code that they expect everyone else to follow,” Granda said, adding that Falwell didn’t believe Liberty’s rules applied to him and would often use his influence to have stories killed and rumors squashed.
“[Jerry] was aware of our relationship from day one,” Granda said. “Jerry is incapable of accepting responsibility for his actions. Therefore, I was not shocked by his attempt to shift the blame to someone else.”
