(Los Angeles, CA_AP) — Actress Lori Loughlin may have thought the charges against her were bogus. There are several reports that say the former Full House star thought the District Attorney in Boston was bluffing, and believed that she might be able to skate by.
There are also reports that she and her husband Mossimo Giannulli rejected a plea deal. Loughlin and her husband are accused of paying $500-grand in bribes to get her kids into USC and they face hefty fines and prison time.
(Boston, MA) — A dozen people accused in the nation’s biggest college admissions bribery case are due in Boston federal court today. They include six college athletic coaches, an associate athletics director, two SAT/ACT test administrators, and two people accused of working with alleged ringleader Rick Singer.
Singer’s accused of orchestrating the cheating and bribery scandal. He’s pleading guilty. The case involves elite schools including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and USC. A number of wealthy parents, including actors Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, are accused of paying bribes to get their children into the colleges.
In related news, hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre and his daughter were forced to remove tweets celebrating her recent acceptance to USC that also showed Andre Young taking swipes at parents who cheated to get their children in.
It seems Dr. Dre forgot USC named a building in his honor after he generously donated $70 million dollars to the school.
(Los Angeles, CA-AP) — The fallout from the college cheating scandal continues for the daughter of actress Lori Loughlin.
The makeup company Sephora has reportedly dropped its partnership with Olivia Jade. TMZ is reporting that the 19-year old YouTube star was behind a product called the Olivia Jade x Sephora palette and the partnership has been terminated, effective immediately.
Loughlin and her husband are accused of handing over around half a million dollars in bribes so their kids can get into USC.
(Los Angeles, CA) – It looks like Brynn Cameron and Blake Griffin have officially called it quits. Once believed to be engaged, rumors have been circulating that the two parted way back in September. Griffin reportedly has been seeing Kendall Jenner since July.
But the NBA baller’s recent steps to establish paternity of this little boy and little girl is the most significant sign that the relationship is all the way done. Cameron was living with Blake but allegedly moved out when his relationship with Jenner was publicized.
According to our sources, Griffin recently filed paperwork to legally establish paternity of Finley and Ford, the kids he has with ex-fiancée Brynn Cameron. Filing for paternity is the first step in getting a court ordered custody and child support agreement, and Griffin filed the documents shortly after he began dating Kendall Jenner.
We’re told Cameron actually fired off her own documents filed by powerhouse attorney Samantha Spector in response to Griffin, again seeking joint custody, but also asking the judge to establish child support based on Griffin’s annual salary.Child support is established based upon income, and Griffin recently signed a $173 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, so there’s a good chance she’ll get a giant monthly payment. There’s also a good chance Griffin will argue the amount.
Brynn earned a few headlines after having kids with Blake because she also has a baby with former NFL player Matt Reinhart. To be fair, the two dated while student athletes at USC where they had their son.
There’s speculation that Brynn believes Blake walked out on his family for a Hollywood relationship and she wants to ensure that her family will be taken care of.
(SL) – An acting U.S. Attorney in New York is shedding some light on what he calls the dark underbelly of college basketball. Joon H. Kim announced Tuesday at a press conference that federal criminal charges have been brought against ten people, including four top-tier college basketball assistant coaches, managers, financial advisers and representatives of a major international sportswear company, widely reported to be Adidas.
Kim says coaches at some of the nation’s top programs took cash bribes to deliver star athletes to an adviser or agent. He also said employees of the sportswear company funneled cash to the families of college recruits to have them play at schools sponsored by the company.
Court documents show the assistant coaches charged in the corruption scheme are Arizona’s Emanuel Richardson, Auburn’s Chuck Person, Oklahoma State’s Lamont Evans, and USC’s Tony Bland. Kim said the bribes and payouts ranged from 13-thousand-dollars up to 100-thousand. The FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office have been investigating the criminal influence of money on coaches and NCAA student-athletes since 2015.
