Colin Firth is dealing with a serious issue in his over 20 year marriage to Livia Giuggioli.
Giuggioli is accusing Italian journalist Marco Brancaccia of stalking her with “frightening” messages, according to British newspaper The Times. Brancaccia denies the allegations telling the publication that she was only lying to hide their year long relationship (which occurred from 2015-2016).
“A few years ago Colin and Livia privately made the decision to separate. During that time Livia briefly became involved with former friend Mr. Brancaccia. The Firths have since reunited,” the Oscar winner and film producer’s rep said in a statement obtained by The Times. “Subsequently, Mr. Brancaccia carried out a frightening campaign of harassment over several months, much of which is documented. For obvious reasons, the Firths have never had any desire to make this matter public.”
Colin and Livia share two sons together, 16-year-old Luca and 15-year-old Matteo.
