Lori Loughlin made her first appearance of the new year. As TV Shows Ace reported, she’s preparing herself for her upcoming trial. She’s mentally and physically preparing herself by hiring a prison consultant. Lori is also signing up for martial arts classes.
Because of the situation, those emotions are showing on her face. She ran errands in Los Angeles on Friday, January 10. She will appear in court next month. The 55-year-old will face charges for her alleged involvement in the college admissions scandal.
Lori Loughlin looks tense in new photos
In Touch Weekly was the first to publish the photos of the actress looking tense as she drove around the city. She and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were arrested and indicted in March 2019 because they allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters [Isabella and Olivia] designated as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team.” Their two daughters, Olivia Jade, 20, and Isabella, 21, reportedly never participated in the rowing team.
Olivia Jade drives around with boyfriend
She wasn’t the only one in Los Angeles. Olivia Jade was photographed riding in an expensive convertible with her boyfriend Jackson Guthy, as reported by Radar Online. The YouTube star and her 23-year-old boyfriend were driving around town on Thursday, January 9. The young couple looked happy, relaxed and carefree.
Olivia returned to YouTube in December following a nine-month hiatus. But it seems like her clothing brand Princess Polly is dead in the water. Sephora and Tresemme dropped her after the college admissions scandal unfolded. Olivia has reportedly distanced herself from her parents and blames them for ruining her career.
New report reveals USC didn’t receive rowing photos
Loughlin has received new information that she’s hoping she can use to prove her innocence. As The Seattle Times reported, it was revealed that USC never received the infamous rowing photos that the couple allegedly took of their daughters, according to a TMZ report. They never used the photos to bribe USC officials. Hence, this damning evidence could prove that the couple is innocent.
Loughlin and Giannulli initially turned down the plea deals. Giannulli felt that taking the plea deal would ruin their careers and reputations.
Above all, his wife still claims she’s innocent. And, she’s hoping that this revelation and a strong defense will persuade the judge to see her side of the story.
