Report: Jerry Falwell Jr. Freaked Out About Photo of Him Partying in South Beach - 2019-09-09
Update: World Red Eye, the photography agency that snapped the photos of Jerry Falwell Jr. and his son, Trey, says the photos are authentic, saying it "wholly rejects" Falwell's claim that the images are Photoshopped. In fact, World Red Eye has uncovered more photos of the Falwells partying at Wall Lounge in Miami Beach.
For the past two years, reporters have been slowly dismantling the public persona of Baptist evangelist Jerry Falwell Jr., a "family values"-style Trump supporter with major political sway among evangelical voters.
Oddly, many of the stories about Falwell take place in Miami Beach, a full 900 miles south of Lynchburg, Virginia, where he heads the ultraconservative Liberty University. First, there was news in August 2017 that Falwell had helped his son Jerry "Trey" Falwell III purchase a "flophouse"-like hostel in South Beach. Then, in late 2018, it was revealed Falwell and his wife had, curiously, loaned $1.8 million to a hunky pool boy they'd met at the Fontainebleau. Earlier this year, the plot thickened when photos were leaked of Falwell and the pool boy at a resort in Islamorada. Additional photos, which have so far gone unpublished, supposedly show Falwell's wife Becki "in various stages of undress."
