Lori Loughlin’s husband, Mossimo Giannulli, has been having a rough go of it during his prison stay due to the college admissions scandal.

What’s going on?

Us Weekly magazine reports that Giannulli has been “having a rough time in prison” due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • One source told Us Weekly: “He is allowed to call his daughters and son; those are the only good parts of his day. He tries to sound strong for his children, but because of fear of a COVID outbreak, he has been spending almost all his time in his cell, which has been very mentally taxing.”
  • “Mossimo is spending his time reading, writing letters to his family and planning future business ventures,” the source added. “Mossimo is also a man of God and has been turning to prayer when he feels weak.”

Different than Loughlin’s stay

This is much different than Loughlin’s prison stay, which wrapped up Dec. 28 when she was released, as I wrote about for the Deseret News. Reports suggested that Loughlin was worried about getting COVID-19 in prison. But her celebrity status helped her stay safe.

  • “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 reportedly was hanging “out with a group and keeps to herself,” the source added.
