Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli’s fate still hangs in the balance a year after they were named in the FBI’s college admission cheating scandal case for allegedly paying $500,000 to make it appear their two daughters Olivia Jade and Bella were rowing team recruits to guarantee their admission to the University of Southern California. The couple pled not guilty to charges of money laundering, conspiracy to commit mail fraud, and bribery; they face up to 60 years in prison if convicted when they go to trial.
Loughlin’s defense team had been trying to get her indictment dismissed amid the coronavirus pandemic. In response to that, prosecution released pages of evidence, including the staged photos Olivia and Bella allegedly took to prove they were “real” athletes for their USC applications, last week. The photos spread on media outlets and social media. E! got a little intel about how Olivia feels about that and how she’s been spending quarantine with the case still looming.
Olivia is “extremely embarrassed” about the photos, E!’s source said. “[She] is fully aware [that] this predicament is ongoing, and she will have waves of sadness and anger.”
Olivia “just wishes this was over,” the source furthered.
The beauty vlogger has been quarantining with her boyfriend rather than her parents, the source said: “Olivia has seen her parents during quarantine but is spending most of her time at her boyfriend’s house in Malibu. [Jackson Guthy]’s parents have a compound in Montecito that they have been spending time at as well.”
