New Details Surface in Lori Loughlin Bribery Case

Oct 22, 2019  •  Post A Comment

With actress Lori Loughlin and her husband facing new federal charges, additional details about the college bribery case against the couple have surfaced, The New York Post’s Page Six reports.

The report cites a new indictment from a Boston grand jury indicating that admitted “fixer” Rick Singer sent an email to the couple in August 2016 to work out some of the details as the couple allegedly schemed to get their daughters admitted to USC.

The Post quotes the court documents saying Singer wrote that “he needed a copy of their older daughter’s transcript and test scores ‘very soon while I create a coxswain [rower] portfolio for her. It would probably help to get a picture of her on an ERG in workout clothes like a real athlete too.’”

According to the documents, Mossimo Giannulli, Loughlin’s fashion designer husband, responded: “Fantastic. Will get all.”

The Post adds: “The next spring, in March 2017, Singer’s accountant then ’emailed a $200,000 invoice to Giannulli and Loughlin. The invoice thanked Giannulli and Loughlin for their pledge to KWF and further stated that their “private contribution” of $200,000 was now due,’ court papers show, referring to Singer’s straw ‘non-profit,’ the Key Worldwide Foundation.”

According to The Post, the court documents allege that Giannulli emailed Singer a few days later, sending a cc to Loughlin, informing Singer: “We are currently on holiday in the Bahamas but will gladly handle this when home next week.”

The documents reportedly continue to detail the correspondence. Click on the link above to The Post for additional details.

  1. O’boy. Bet Lori Loughlin and her husband are now wishing they took the plea deal. In just a few days Felicity Huffman will be out of jail and have all this behind her. No more lawyer’s fees. She can tell the press that she did wrong, is very sorry about it, served her time, and now wants to put this all behind her and get on with her life. Unfortunately for Lori Loughlin, she will continue to be in the spotlight for weeks, months or even years to come. The plea deal may not have sounded good at the time but in retrospect, it would have been the smartest thing she could have done. It wouldn’t surprise me if her lawyer(s) weren’t responsible for convincing her to fight it. And, of course, they get more fees. Now, win or lose in court, she has already lost in the court of public opinion. While Felicity Huffman goes on with her life.
