The fallout isn’t over yet. Lori Loughlin is still waiting to go to trial for her alleged involvement in the nationwide college admissions scandal, and it’s now been revealed that her daughters, Isabella and Olivia Jade, are no longer enrolled at the University of Southern California. The school’s registrar released a new statement about the ordeal on Monday, October 21.
“Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli are not currently enrolled,” the statement released to CNN began. “We are unable to provide additional information because of student privacy laws.”
It looks like the Fuller House star’s youngest daughter, Olivia, is doing her best to stay positive amid the controversy. The influencer, 20, was spotted out and about this weekend at a star-studded birthday party held in Beverly Hills. She appeared to be in good spirits while holding hands with her boyfriend, Jackson Guthy, after their reconciliation was revealed in August.
Meanwhile, Olivia’s older sister, Isabella, 21, has also been photographed in Los Angeles on various occasions since news of the scandal broke.
As we previously reported, Lori, 55, and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, 56, were arrested in March after they were accused of paying $500,000 “in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team” — even though the girls didn’t participate in crew. It also should be noted that neither Olivia or Isabella have been charged with any wrong-doing.
Since then, Lori and Mossimo have pleaded not guilty to money laundering and conspiracy charges, unlike Felicity Huffman who pleaded guilty to the charges against her. The Desperate Housewives actress is currently serving her 14 day sentence in prison. It’s reported that she’ll only be there 13 days, because the day she was taken in and booked is being counted as time served.
Looking ahead, Lori and Mossimo might not receive such a favorable outcome if they are convicted down the line. “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling told Boston’s ABC affiliate WCVB during a recent interview.
Time will tell.
