Lori Loughlin’s hubby, Mossimo Giannulli, loses bid for early prison release
The children of college scam convict Mossimo Giannulli treated the end of his five-month prison sentence with the pomp of a graduation ceremony — as they all showed up to escort him home from the big house.
Daughters Olivia Jade, 21, and Isabella “Bella” Rose Giannulli, 22, along with his 30-year-old son from another marriage, Gianni Giannulli, went together to pick their dad up last Friday from a federal prison outside Santa Barbara, Gianni told “Extra” host Billy Bush.
The two girls had a special surprise for their dad, as they hid in the back seat and popped up when he got in the car.
The siblings showed up bright and early, as they arrived at the Federal Correctional Institution in Lompoc, Calif., right at 8:30 a.m., the earliest time they were allowed, Gianni said.
Mossimo, 57, was released after doing his sentence for paying $500,000 to get his daughters into the University of Southern California as rowing recruits despite them never being coxswains.
While he was expected to be released on April 17, the fashion designer is now on home confinement and will be monitored with an ankle bracelet for the remaining two weeks of his sentence.
His wife, “Full House” alum Lori Loughlin, served two months in prison for her role in the nationwide bribery scandal and was released in December.
Olivia Jade broke her silence on her parents’ prison sentences and the scheme itself the same month as her mom’s release.
“I felt so ashamed and embarrassed … although I didn’t really 100 percent understand what had just happened because there was a lot that, when I was applying, I was not fully aware of what was going on,” she told Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris on Facebook Watch’s “Red Table Talk” at the time. “When I got home [from spring break], I just felt so ashamed.”
The YouTuber added, “A huge part of having privilege is not knowing you have privilege, so when it was happening, it didn’t feel wrong. It didn’t feel like, ‘That’s not fair. A lot of people don’t have that.’ … I was in my own little bubble. Focusing on my comfortable world.”
