Mossimo Giannulli, who was accused, along with his wife Lori Loughlin, of fraud as a result of the college entrance exams, took his parents’ tuition for the University of Southern California (USC), but never actually registered, according to reports and his own daughter, Olivia Jade.
Mossimo Giannulli, 55, already admitted himself in a new interview called 2016.
“SC was expensive, so that’s how I started my business. I’ve used all that money,” he told The Hundreds, allegedly “not responsible.”
Mossimo Giannulli lived in a student house, despite not being enrolled in USC, where he scored T-shirts for campus groups, which, according to him, triggered his ambition. “I used to have hundreds of thousands of money in my top drawer in my student house. And I thought,” This is a bit too easy. I need a larger platform. If I had a larger account file, I could really kill it. “
The fashion designer reportedly attended USC for the spring mission year 1984 at the College of Continuing Education, a non-degree program without official admission requirements and open to everyone. Students in the program have the status “visitor” at the school.
Olivia Jade told Giannulli’s quasi-college experience at “The Zach Sang Show” on March 8, shortly before he and Loughlin, 54, were arrested and released on $ 1 million bonds.
“I don’t know if I should say this, sorry father,” said the 19-year-old YouTube star. “But he was never enrolled in college, he faked a way through it. Yes, so then he started his entire business with tuition that his parents thought they would study.”
Olivia Jade also claimed in the same interview that she was mainly planning to take advantage of school for her own brand – but it didn’t go as planned.
Mossimo Giannulli and former Hallmark asterisk Loughlin are accused of paying two $ 500,000 bribes to William “Rick” Singer to get daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella in USC as crew team recruits, even though neither of the girls is a rower. They can each be in jail for up to 40 years after they have rejected a plea and were beaten with additional costs of money laundering and conspiracy.
