- Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are heading to court for their part in the college admissions scandal.
- New documents reveal that the couple is planning on "presenting a united front" at trial.
It's been too long since we last got information about the college admissions scandal (aka Operation Varsity Blues), so let's dive into some updates, shall we?
As you may already know, Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are facing up to 40 years in prison for allegedly bribing their daughter Olivia Jade's way into USC. The couple's next court date is August 27, and according to legal documents obtained by The Mercury News, Lori and Mossimo are determined to put on a "united front."
The prosecution for the case was arguing that Lori and Mossimo shouldn't be represented by the same lawyers, as it puts the couple at risk of "their attorneys having divided loyalties between the two co-defendants." However, in the documents, Lori and Mossimo's lawyer rejects that argument and responds, “Giannulli and Loughlin are innocent of the charges brought against them and are eager to clear their names. And they believe their interests will be advanced most effectively by presenting a united front against the Government’s baseless accusations.”
This seems to be quite a different story from a couple of months ago when Lori and Mossimo were reportedly turning on each other. Back in April, a source shared, "There's a rift between Lori and Mossimo. He is completely mortified by this whole thing and she is putting on a happy face and acting like everything will be okay...[Lori and Mossimo] are blaming each other and disagreeing on things. They are starting to turn on each other and there is incredible stress and tension."
Well, I guess we'll just have to wait and see what actually happens at their trail!
