Falwell has confirmed his wife was having an affair. He released this statement to the right-wing publication the Washington Examiner regarding Giancarlo Granda’s claims:
“While we tried to distance ourselves from him over time, he unfortunately became increasingly angry and aggressive. Eventually, he began threatening to publicly reveal this secret relationship with Becki and to deliberately embarrass my wife, family, and Liberty University unless we agreed to pay him substantial monies.”
Granda denies those allegations.
