SALT LAKE CITY — Updates on Lori Loughlin made the rounds through celebrity news websites Monday. And one update from an unnamed legal source explained Lori Loughlin’s process as she awaits her trial in the college admissions case.
An unnamed legal source told People magazine that Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are focused solely on their court case, going as far as to Google their case and keep track of the details.
“Lori is obsessing over every detail of the case,” the source told People magazine. “She’s not working, she’s not doing anything. She’s just reading the files again and again.”
“The family was told to remove their Google alerts and to stop searching their names because it’s not good for them to see what’s being said. But this is a full-time concern of hers.”
Loughlin and her husband are due in court on Tuesday.
Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Giannulli, could become team crew recruits for the University of Southern California. The couple pleaded not guilty in the case.
On Monday, the Deseret News reported that an unnamed source told Page Six that Loughlin spends a lot of time around her church’s support network. However, Loughlin and her husband have seen their own friends step away.
“A lot of these people are socially prominent, give to charities, have done the right things wealthy people are supposed to do in this town. They’re scared they might get ostracized by association,” the source told Page Six.
“They’re calling less, inviting less. Hanging back — for now. If (Giannulli and Loughlin) are not convicted, everything will go back to the way it was,” said the friend. “But if they are, well, they might want to move. It’s sort of Bel Air ‘Bonfire of the Vanities.’ ”
