Livia Firth, wife of British actor Colin Firth, has dropped the harassment charges against her ex-lover, thus preventing the details of their love affair from being revealed. Maiden Livia Giuggioli, 48, reported Marco Brancaccia to the police after he allegedly sent her a compromising photo of her when she ended their relationship. “The parties have asked the court to postpone the preliminary hearing to formalize the agreement. This prevents any other public statement by either party on this matter,” said a spokesman participating in the negotiation adding that Marco wants to “clean up her name, “but Colin and Livia don’t want any private details to be made public in court.
The British press revealed in March that Livia and the photographer had a one-year relationship, during a period in which she was momentarily separated from the actor. Firth and Livia married in 1997 and have two children, Luca, 16, and Matteo, 15.
It was last year when Livia Firth denounced to the Italian police “the terrifying campaign of harassment” to which she was subjected by the journalist and an investigation was opened that forced the actor and his wife to explain under what circumstances this had taken place. extramarital affair and the reasons that had forced them to go to the police. During the investigation, “abusive messages and emails” were found on Brancaccia’s phone.
The 55-year-old photographer denied the accusations that Firth and his wife have made against him and told the magazine People that he had barely had contact with Livia since their relationship ended. “The reality is that Livia and I have known each other since we were young and then we had an 11-month love relationship between 2015 and 2016,” explained the journalist. “It ended in June 2016 and I did not call her again. I sent her two messages from WhatsApp, a text message birthday greeting and an email to Colin, which I really regret.
In this message, he told the British actor about the relationship he had with his wife. “I sent it in a moment of frustration, of sadness,” Brancaccia has argued. “It was a terrible mistake, so much so that I even apologized. But going from that to being a stalker is not correct, “he explained.
During these months the Italian journalist has also given details about his adventure. He said he and Livia Firth used to travel so they could see each other “as many times as possible” and that during that period they visited Italy, Brazil, London and New York. “It was a love story,” he said. And he explained that the end of their relationship occurred when he pressured Livia to divorce her husband. “When I asked her when she would tell Colin, she abruptly ended our relationship.”
The Firths have recognized the adventure that Livia had with Marco Brancaccia during their separation. And they explained that when they resumed their marriage relationship, they faced for months a “terrifying campaign of harassment” by Branccacia, which is neatly documented. A situation that the Firths have never wanted to make public for obvious reasons.
