AceShowbiz - Lori Loughlin and her daughter Isabella Rose have been spotted together for the first time since the college admissions scandal. The 54-year-old actress and her 20-year-old daughter were seen hugging it out while running errands in Beverly Hills on Friday afternoon, April 5.
The mother-daughter duo showed their close bond amid the scrutiny that they are facing amid the bribery allegation. Lori was all smiles as she opened her arms to embrace her daughter. They were waiting for the valet attendant to bring their car around when the photo was taken.
Lori wore a red hat and a pair of shades while holding some cash with one hand and her mobile phones with the other hand. Isabella, who was pictured from the back, wore a white short skirt and an olive printed hoodie.
Lori and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were indicted with 48 other people, including "Desperate Housewives" alum Felicity Huffman, for their alleged involvement in the nationwide college admissions scandal. The pair are accused of paying $500,000 to get their daughters admitted into the University of Southern California by pretending the sisters were competitive rowing recruits, while they had never trained in the sport and had no plans to do so. They were released on $1 million bond each.
Lori and Mossimo appeared at a hearing for the case in Boston on Wednesday, April 3. During their 6-minute hearing, the couple waived their right to a preliminary hearing. Meanwhile, the judge denied prosecutors' request for a gagging order, preventing the actresses from discussing the case with their spouses or children.
While Lori and Isabella have shown their close bond amid the scandal, the "Fuller House" star's relationship with her younger daughter Olivia Jade is reportedly not good. The 19-year-old is said blaming her parents for everything. The YouTube star lost her deals with a number of companies in the wake of the college admissions scam.
