Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli have reported paid their fines levied against them as part of the college admissions scandal sentencing, according to reports.

What’s going on?

Fox News reports that Loughlin paid the $150,000 fine she was ordered to pay in the scandal.

  • Giannulli also paid his $250,000 fine, according to TMZ, which cited court documents.

The couple will now be asked to serve out the rest of their prison sentence. Loughlin was sentenced to two months in jail, while Giannulli has to serve five months total.

  • The couple will need to complete community service projects as well.

Latest on Loughlin:

An unnamed source recently told Us Weekly magazine that Loughlin has been worried about COVID-19 since she was sent to prison.

She also embraced her celebrity status while in prison, as I wrote about for the Deseret News. Her presence has increased COVID-19 precautions there, which has given her quite a following inside the prison.

  • “The other women are happy Lori is there because officials are taking COVID-19 seriously,” the source said, adding, “It would be horrible PR if Lori got COVID-19 and got really sick.”
  • Loughlin does reportedly hang “with a group and keeps to herself,” the source said.
