As the massive college admissions cheating scandal unfolds, speculation is mounting as to whether or not the University of Southern California will take action against Lori Loughlin's daughters, Isabella Rose, 20, and Olivia Jade, 19.
The "Fuller House" actress' daughters are students at the prestigious school, but the way in which they got in is the subject of bombshell new charges brought on by the Department of Justice against 50 people, including Loughlin and Huffman, allegedly involved in a years-long scheme in which wealthy parents paid fixer William Singer to get their children into elite universities.
Isabella and Olivia's future at USC will depend upon if the school determines that they were or weren't aware of their parents' bribery to get them into the university, TMZ reports.
According to official documents, Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, "agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team -- despite the fact that they did not participate in crew -- thereby facilitating their admission to USC."
But did their daughters know that they got into their top choice school on false pretenses?
TMZ cited sources who said that "students will not all be evaluated the same way" because of varying levels of awareness of the bribery that went on behind-the-scenes.
"If the students knew they were admitted because of bribes, they will be expelled," TMZ reports. "If they were in the dark, the University will evaluate all of the circumstances and the decisions will be student-specific."
Though the affidavit doesn't explicitly state whether or not the young women knew that their parents were allegedly bribing their way into the school, it does show that the scheme involved Loughlin and Giannulli submitting staged photos of both Olivia and Isabella posing on rowing machines in an effort to make it look like they actively participated in crew.
As part of the scheme, Olivia and Isabella were made to seem like they were crew coxswains, despite the fact they neither of them had ever rowed or participated in crew in high school.
In another section of the affidavit, Loughlin asked for direction on submitting Olivia's college applications because she was "confused on how to do so," with Loughlin adding that "I don't want to call any attention to [her] with out little friend at [her high school]."
Singer replied to Loughlin's inquiry by directing one of his employees to submit Olivia's applications for her.
TMZ also reported that USC officials "are furious at the parents who engaged in bribery," saying that the scandal "has tarnished the school, the students and the athletic programs."
In the wake of the bombshell admissions scandal, Olivia's past comments about her father having "faked his way through" college and her own mixed feelings about going to school resurfaced online.
"I don’t know how much of school I’m gonna attend," she shared with her nearly 2 million subscribers last summer. "But I’m gonna go in and talk to my deans and everyone, and hope that I can try and balance it all. But I do want the experience of like game days, partying…I don’t really care about school, as you guys all know."
She later apologized for her "super ignorant and stupid" comments.
Giannulli was arrested on Tuesday morning and released on bail later that afternoon. Loughlin was shooting a project in Vancouver at the time of the mass arrests and was expected to turn herself in to authorities on Wednesday morning after landing back in Los Angeles.
