The federal indictment charging Mossimo Giannulli and Lori Loughlin with bribery shows two new alleged quotes from the designer that some say may incriminate them further.
Giannulli and Loughlin are among the 52 people charged in the so-called college admissions scam. They have been accused of shelling out $500K to get their daughters Isabella and Olivia Jade admitted to University of Southern California as crew recruits, though they'd never participated in the sport. On Monday, USC said the girls are no longer enrolled.
According to CNN, the mastermind of the alleged scam, William "Rick" Singer, contacted the pair saying he needed Isabella's transcript and test scores "very soon while I create a coxswain portfolio for her."
"It would probably help to get a picture of her on an ERG in workout clothes like a real athlete," Singer wrote, referring to the indoor rowing machine.
"Fantastic," Giannulli replied, according to the indictment. "Will get all."
Once she was enrolled at USC, Singer emailed Giannulli an invoice for $200K, which Giannulli then forwarded to his accountant.
"Good news my daughter ... is in (U)SC... bad is I had to work the system," he allegedly wrote.
People reports that the pair are freaking out about the new bribery charges.
"They feel like this is David versus Goliath. How do you go up against the federal government, when the government has decided to make an example out of you? How can you possibly move forward from this?" a source close to Loughlin, 55, tells People.
"This stress is about to break them," says the source.
With the new charges, the pair face up to 50 years in prison.
