New Evidence Discovered Against Actress & Husband
A status conference will be held today as an update on those involved in the college admissions scam, among them actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion mogul Mossimo Giannulli. Being addressed in the conference are 1.5 million pages of emails, nearly 500,000 other documents, 4,000 intercepted or consensually recorded telephone calls and text messages seized by the government. Below are some of the details being revealed. Following that is our previous account of this week’s news updates about the case as it pertains to actress Loughlin, Mossimo and their two daughters.
What’s in the Documents
- Details from prosecutors of how William “Rick” Singer, the mastermind behind the scheme, structured the scam, which he described as a “side door” approach to parents looking to gain admission for their children into elite colleges.
- Prosecutors have stated documents show Loughlin and Giannulli as specifically rejecting the ‘legitimate’ approach,” this despite their previous defense to the contrary.
- Emails discussing the fake athletic profiles created for Loughlin’s and Giannulli’s daughters who applied to the University of Southern California (USC) as rowing recruits. CNN reports, “In one element of the profile created for their older daughter, she is described as ‘an earnest, outspoken, incredibly positive-minded coxswain” who “puts extra effort in to everything she does.'”
- An email exchange discussing the need for a rowing photo of one of Loughlin’s daughters for her application. Per CNN, “After Singer sent now-former USC official Donna Heinel the falsified profile of the older Giannulli daughter, Heinel requested a different photo of the girl. “Donna asked for a picture of her in a boat,” Singer wrote to one of his associates. “Is there a coxswain picture we can use that is tough to see the face since they are sitting online?” Singer wrote.”
- An email outlining Giannulli’s response to being contacted by a USC development official to set up a visit for his daughter to the college and about “flagging” her application to note that Giannulli is an alumnus of the university. Giannulli’s response, as cited in a CNN article, “‘I think we are all squared away,’ Giannulli responded to the official. He forwarded the email to his wife, Loughlin, with an addition — “The nicest I’ve been at blowing off somebody.'”
