Back in 2020, Becki, the wife of former Liberty University President, Jerry Falwell, was accused of having a couple of extra-marital affairs. As a matter of fact, she was alleged to have engaged in sexual activity with a Liberty University student who apparently was her son’s friend.

The man, who was 22 at the time said that Becki started the act and he went along with it initially. However, later, even after his denial of further advances, Tilley kept messaging her, offering him gifts.

After the allegation, Becki and her husband Jerry released a statement saying,

“It is unfortunate that the coverage of our departure has turned into a frenzy of false and fantastic claims about us. These false and mean spirited lies have hurt us and our family greatly and we will respond fully with the truth at an appropriate time.”

The statement continues,

” At this time, however, we think it is best to move on and help the Liberty community focus on its very bright future…”

Even though the husband-and-wife denied the allegation, another band member and friend of the accuser also talked about the incident to POLITICO where he said that his friend had told him of the sexual encounter.

Controversial Extra-Marital Affair With a Pool Boy

Meanwhile, Jerry resigned from the position of President in the wake of this allegation. Talking about his resignation, Jerry told,

“That’s the only reason I resigned: because I don’t want something my wife did to harm the school I’ve spent my whole life building. I never broke a single rule that applies to staff members at Liberty, which I was. So I want everybody to know that.”

Besides, Jerry also added that a man was extorting him and was reportedly threatening him with making his affair with Becki public. However, he didn’t mention Granda by name.
