The plot has definitely thickened for Lori Loughlin as it relates to the college admissions scandal. As we’ve told you, she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, alleged paid a half a million dollars in bribes to get their daughters, Isabella and Olivia, into the University of Southern California. As such, they’ve been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
Now sources are saying that Olivia knew what was going on. As heard in Olivia's own words, she was never super interested in going to school, but her parents insisted. According to reports, Olivia got wind of their efforts to get her into USC, went along...and now she’s distraught and embarrassed.
An insider says, “She would have never gone along with it if she thought this would happen.” And testifying in court is absolutely terrifying to her because, according to the source, “She feels that she has already been through enough embarrassment over this situation and a court appearance would make things ten times worse.”
- And while the YouTube star – who lost endorsement deals with TRESemmé and Sephora in the wake of the scandal – believes that her folks ruined her career as an influencer, she doesn’t want them to go to jail. “She feels like she’s living in a horrible nightmare,” the insider said. She hasn’t been home and has been hiding out with her friends. Neither she nor Isabella have been back to school in the wake of the scandal.
- However, Isabella seems to be cool about this situation. In fact, she was spotted with her mother in Beverly Hills over the weekend. The two were hugging as they waited for a valet attendant.
