Jerry Falwell Jr.: I had no responsibility to tell Liberty University about my personal life
Jerry Falwell, Jr. is asking a court to dismiss a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed against him by his former employer, Liberty University, the Christian conservative evangelical college founded by his father.
The suit, worth more than $40 million, is merely a tool to embarrass and publicly shame him, Falwell says. He claims university officials are using it as a vehicle to keep his affairs in the public eye.
The lawsuit, Falwell claims, according to the Lynchburg News & Advance, focuses "in large part on an affair between Falwell's wife, Becki, and a young man named Giancarlo Granda that Jerry Falwell Jr. has made public statements about."
Granda has repeatedly claimed that not only did Falwell know about his wife's affair with Granda, often described in the media as their "pool boy," Falwell Jr. participated in some of the liaisons, as a voyeur.
