    Colin Firth And His Wife Worked Through Her Affair



    Last week we learned that Colin Firth and his wife of 21 years, Livia Giuggioli, were in stuck in the middle of some extramarital boyfriend drama of the highest degree. During a 2015/2016 hiatus in their marriage, Livia hooked up with an old childhood friend named Marco Brancaccia, who allegedly turned stalker once she decided to go back to Colin. It was the kind of affair that could turn a break into an official split, but not for Colin and Livia.


    According to People, this story should be accompanied by some Ashford & Simpson, because they’re solid as a rock. A source says that Colin and Livia worked through the affair and subsequent stalker drama, and their marriage is all good.

    “These two have a solid commitment, are on the same level, and worked through it. They got back together, and things are fine. They have a good marriage. It’s not uncommon for a marriage to go through periods where it seems stale, especially with children involved,” adds the source.


    Colin and Livia have two sons together. As for their marriage getting stale, I’m sure everyone who would have chosen Mark Darcy over Daniel Cleaver just screamed “HOW EVEN THOUGH??“. Another source echoed the first by stressing that they have a “committed relationship.” Well obviously – if Colin didn’t immediately call it quits after opening WhatsApp and discovering sex pics from his wife’s side piece, I’d say he’s in it like a pair of cement shoes. Speaking of, you know that was probably something that was mentioned when they were working things out. “Don’t want to be a bother, but if we take another break, can I ask that you don’t pick someone who will message me after? Thanks in advance, love.”[COLOR=#666666 !important]

    Half the couple had less of a ‘solid commitment’ than the other. She’s extremely lucky that he was willing to take her back. I would have left her clothes in suitcases on the door step (or actually probably made a bonfire) and changed the locks.

    Colin Firth's Wife's Ex-Lover Charged with Stalking Her After Affair

    Marco Brancaccia has been officially charged with stalking Colin Firth’s wife Livia Firth, British newspaper The Times reported.

    The Italian journalist had a relationship with Livia while she was briefly separated from Firth between 2015 and 2016. Last year, police opened up an investigation against Brancaccia after Livia filed a police report in Italy accused him of launching “a frightening campaign of harassment” — which he denies.

    They found “abusive messages and emails” on Brancaccia’s phone during the investigation, The Times reported.

    Though lawyers for Brancaccia and Livia appeared at a closed pre-trial hearing in Rome on Tuesday where charges were formally made, The Times reported a lawyers strike rescheduled their meeting until July. There, the judge will decide whether or not to send the case to trial. All hearings are expected to be held in private.

    If convicted, Brancaccia could face five years in jail, The Times reported. Said prosecutor Maria Monteleone, “We think we have enough evidence, otherwise we would not have asked for a trial.”

    A rep for Firth declined to comment.

    In March, Brancacccia, 55, denied the claims Firth, 57, and Livia, 48, had made against him — telling PEOPLE he had barely been in contact with Livia since their relationship ended because he had been on assignment in Brazil since the end of the romance and he did not contact her during his one trip home to Italy last summer.

    “The reality is that Livia and I have known each other since we were youths, then in 2015-2016 we had an 11-month love affair,” Brancaccia explained. “After it ended in June 2016 I never called her again. I did send her two WhatsApp messages, one happy birthday [text message] and an email to Colin, the latter which I truly regret.”

    He continued, “It was sent out in a moment of frustration, sadness — a terrible moment. In the email to Colin — which now in retrospect I truly regret sending — I informed him of the affair I had with Livia. I would never now send that email. It was a terrible mistake, so much so that I even apologized. But to go from that to being made out to be a stalker is just not right.”

    During their 11-month affair, Brancaccia said he and Livia would often travel to see each other “as often as possible” — visiting Italy, Brazil, London and New York and writing WhatsApp messages during the day. “It was a love story,” he said.

    Brancaccia claimed that the end of their relationship came after he pressured Livia on when she would divorce Firth. “I have no reason to doubt that when she said she loved me and she wanted to be with me, she was being honest,” he said. “But when it came to actions, and I asked her when she would tell Colin, she abruptly ended the relationship.”

    In a statement obtained by PEOPLE, Firth and Livia confirmed the relationship, saying, “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 statement continued, “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.”

    Brancaccia says he wrote to Firth in detail about his affair with Livia after he saw the two step out together on TV.

    “It hurt me very much so I wrote to him and told him everything about our affair. After a couple of days he answered. He was polite. He wrote something along the lines of, ‘You hurt me, but I understand that you are hurting too.’ After that, I never got in touch with them again.”

    Firth and Livia married in 1997 after first meeting on the 1996 set of the BBC drama Nostromo. The two later moved to the Italian region of Umbria and welcomed two sons, Luca, 16, and Matteo, 15. Firth has since become an Italian citizen.

    After learning of the suit in Spring 2017, Brancaccia filed for calumny against Livia in May 2017 for purportedly falsely accusing him of having committed a crime in front of a police or judicial authority.

    “Together with my lawyers we established that what had been written in Livia’s complaint was slanderous,” he told PEOPLE. “I have never threatened Livia or any other member of her family.”

    Colin Firth and Livia Giuggioli Split a Year After She Admits to Affair With Her Alleged Stalker

    Anyone remember that wild story last year about Colin Firth, Livia Giuggioli, and her affair with her alleged stalker? Well, E! just got an update about their marriage, and it looks like they've decided to finally call it quits after 22 years of marriage.

    According to their reps, Colin and Livia have decided to separate. The official statement said, "Colin and Livia Firth have separated. They maintain a close friendship and remain united in their love for their children. They kindly ask for privacy. There will be no further comment."

    This announcement comes more than a year after Colin and Livia made headlines when she admitted to having an affair with an Italian journalist named Marco Brancaccia while she and Colin were separated. At the time, their rep told British newspaper The Times, "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.”

    When all this was unfolding, Livia also accused Marco of stalking her, prompting an investigation by the Italian police. Marco denied this and claimed she just wanted to cover up their affair. He told The Times, "I wrote an email to Colin about my relationship with Livia, which I now regret sending, and she filed a complaint against me for stalking out of fear that I could go public with what she had revealed to me about her marriage and work.”

    As of now, it's not clear whether Colin and Livia will go through an official divorce.

    I may be a bitch, but he should have left her when the affair first came out. He seems like such a gentle soul and he deserves someone that treats him better.

    It’s not cheating if they’re separated! But regardless it sounds like their marriage has been in trouble for a while and they’ve separated and reconciled at least once that we know of, so maybe this is for the best. And for all we know he had dalliances with other people too, maybe they didn’t make it to the tabloids so yeah, I’m in no rush to judge but I’ll probably be alone in that.

    Yes, I think there was a blind or two suggesting it was messier than it looks. The whole thing seems like a contorted damage limitation exercise to save face. He hates Brexit, though, so it's not all bad.

    No, you're not alone. Affair while separated = not cheating.

    My issue isn't so much the cheating, or not cheating, but that she tried to railroad the other guy as a stalker to cover her ass.

    Do we know he didn’t stalk her? He was writing to her husband, supposedly after their affair had ended, for no other reason than to hurt her. And calling and texting and even making threats to go public even after she had cut off contact. Sounds like stalking at worst, at best he was a controlling jerk who couldn’t take no for an answer and couldn't accept being broken up with.

    According to a legal complaint, his harassing behavior began in September 2016 after he was nixed from Giuggioli's life, including an alleged threat to write damaging articles about the couple”

    He has yet to prove he wasn’t staking her and if she and firth filed a legal complaint and prosecutors are on record saying there was enough evidence to move forward with the case then I imagine they had some receipts.

    I don't know, it just seemed that way from what I read prior. But I'm just saying that if she did accuse him falsely, which I guess maybe she didn't, I'd be more judgey about that than whatever cheating may or may not have taken place. It's a weird story.
