Jerry Falwell Jr and his wife Becki have denied allegations she performed oral sex on a 22-year-old student of Liberty University who was friends with their son.
Falwell Jr resigned as president of the anti-LGBT+ Liberty University following a sex scandal involving a former pool boy who claimed Falwell enjoyed watching him have sex with his wife, Becki.
Now another man, who did not wish to be named, has alleged that he had an encounter with Becki after she pursued him on Facebook for months in 2008, according to Politico.
He was a student at Liberty University at the time, he said, claiming that that he recruited Falwell’s eldest son, Trey, into his band.
He claimed The Falwells would often invite the band to play at an old church on their lot – Becki began showing up at rehearsal, but the boys paid little attention, he said.
A bandmate who also spoke to Politico alleged Becki would often flirt with the student, even while her own son was present.
In August 2008 before Liberty classes resumed, Becki reportedly approached the student and asked: “Have you told your friends that I think you’re hot?”
The man claimed that he had finished band practise one day and was at their Falwell family home in Cifax, California. After pulling back a few whiskeys, he was invited to stay in the guest bedroom, where he later found Becki standing in the corner of the room, giggling and staring, he claimed.
A few nights later, he stayed in the guest bedroom again. This time, he claims Becki jumped on top, and performed oral sex on him.
Becki Falwell allegedly used fake Facebook accounts to flirt with a student. Jerry Falwell Jr denies this happened.
According to chat logs sent to the outlet by the student, after the act, Becki started to send the student suggestive messages via a dummy Facebook account as well as sending him gifts.
All the while, the student struggled to keep what was happening a secret: “I don’t want to be a homewrecker,” he said, “that took a toll on the soul.”
“She was the aggressor,” he said.
Chat logs appear to show Becki complimented the student on several occasions in September 2008.
In December 2008, he apparently sought to stop Becki’s advances by saying he did not want a romantic relationship with her.
“Maybe time will heal whatever wounds that I have caused and your Christian heart will allow you to forgive me,” was the reply in the chat log.
The student is now 34 and said he hasn’t heard from Becki in more than eight years. That was, he said, until the “pool boy” reports broke.
He claims Becki texted him to admit that the scandal is proving a “nightmare” for her.
In a statement, Jerry and Becki Falwell denied the allegations
“It is unfortunate that the coverage of our departure has turned into a frenzy of false and fantastic claims about us,” they told Politico.
“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.
“At this time, however, we think it is best to move on and help the Liberty community focus on its very bright future.”
