This admission comes after reports of the stalking allegations were made public due to leaked court documents, which the Firths' statement said was "greatly to be regretted".

Yet that's exactly what his wife of 20 years, Livia Giuggioli, did - and then had an affair with an Italian man who she now claims is stalking her. The statement continues: "Subsequently, Mr. Brancaccia carried out a frightening campaign of harassment over several months, much of which is documented".

Admitting to the affair, Livia - who Wednesday The King's Speech actor in 1997 - claimed Brancaccia stalked her once the romance had come to an end.

He adds that he received "hundreds of messages of love, photos and videos, even a diary" from Giuggioli spanning a year's time at one point.

But the couple claimed Friday that the previous extramarital relationship had, in fact, occurred in a statement to The Times, a United Kingdom -based publication. But, the scandal that just broke between Colin Firth and his wife Livia Giuggioli has us reeling, and nearly seems like a made-for-the-movies plot line itself.

According to the rep, Livia and Colin, who tied the knot back in 1997 and have two children together, never spoke publicly about the affair for "obvious reasons".

Colin Firth's wife, Livia, had a fling with Marco Brancaccia. He claims he sent two messages on WhatsApp and an email to Colin which he "regrets".

Colin Firth won the Best Actor Oscar for The King's Speech. He is accused of threatening to write compromising articles about her and Firth before emailing photographs to the British actor, prompting a police probe.

A spokesperson for the Italian police confirmed to The Times that authorities are investigating the situation.

Through a statement from his lawyers, Brancaccia has denied engaging in such behavior, claiming he "has absolutely nothing to do with the events described".

Prosecutors have put in a request to judges in Rome to take the case to trial.

The Marco Brancaccia connected with Firth and his wife is not to be confused, however, with a freelance journalist and photographer also named Marco Brancaccia. Or at least, that's the only explanation we can think of for stepping out on Colin Firth.

A source told The Sun Online: "He speaks Italian, is Wednesday to an Italian and often visits Italy".
