Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are charged with paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as crew recruits.
Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are in the middle of a legal firestorm, and it's putting a strain on their marriage.
The "Fuller House" star and the fashion designer have pleaded not guilty for their respective involvement in the college admissions bribery scandal and are struggling to remain a united front.
“Lori is constantly arguing with Mossimo because she is beginning to grasp that they are in very serious jeopardy,” a source told Us Weekly.

The actress's friends are also worried about her. They were reportedly never fans of him and believe Giannulli "concocted" the situation.
Another source added that Loughlin is "in denial" about the severity of her situation and "doesn't believe she should have to spend any time in prison."
To make matters worse, their daughter YouTuber Olivia Jade, who benefitted from their alleged bribes by getting into the University of Southern California under false pretenses, was spotted partying with other YouTube stars in Studio City, Cali.
According to TMZ, Jade was laughing and dancing at the party while her student status at USC is currently in limbo. The college said it would be reviewing the kids involved in the scandal on a case-by-case basis.
