A statement from Liberty confirmed Jerry Falwell, Jr. has resigned as president of Liberty University.
Falwell told the Wall Street Journal that he had sent his letter of resignation to the board.
Earlier Monday, Reuters published a story saying Falwell’s onetime business partner, Giancarlo Granda, a former pool attendant at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel, had a six-year relationship that involved sex with Becki Falwell while Jerry Falwell looked on.
“Becki and I developed an intimate relationship, and Jerry enjoyed watching from the corner of the room,” Granda said in the Reuters story, Fox News reported.
