Where Lori Loughlin And Husband’s Huge Fortune Really Came From

Full and Fuller House star Lori Loughlin and
her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, made headlines when they were charged in the largest
college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the U.S. Department of Justice. The celebrity couple was accused of shelling
out half a million to help their daughters make the cut. Let’s take a closer look at their real net
worth — and how much they stand to lose. “Bread! Dough! Money! Yay! Money!” Lori Loughlin wasn’t even supposed to be a
regular on Full House, where she starred alongside the Olsen twins as Uncle Jesse’s lady love. The starlet was originally contracted to only
six episodes, but Aunt Becky soon became a fan favorite and producers loved the way she
interacted with the Tanner girls. They ended up giving her a supporting role,
where she became a mainstay and finished out the series in 1995. Loughlin’s first big break was a Tab Cola
commercial, and by the time she landed her role in Full House, she was already working
in TV. The series helped make her a household name,
and she’s since landed some big roles, from the 90210 reboot, to some G-rated basic cable
cult hits. All this hard work helped her amass a pretty
impressive $20 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Mossimo Giannulli knows what it’s like to
get a helping hand from Mom and Dad. Though his parents didn’t spend half a million
dollars helping him cheat his way into USC — the alma mater he ditched before launching
his namesake brand — he did supposedly receive a generous $100,000 loan from his father to
start his clothing line, according to the Hollywood Reporter. And according to his daughter Olivia Jade,
the time he did spend in college was “faked”: “I don’t know if I’m supposed to say this. Sorry dad! But, he wasn’t ever, like, ‘enrolled’ in college. But he, like, faked his way through it, and—” “Whoa.” Now, if the name Mossimo sounds familiar,
that’s because you’ve probably seen it in every Target across America. Children of the early aughts might think of
the brand as those affordable, not-so-trendy basics your mom picks up while browsing for
snacks and school supplies, but at one point, Mossimo was a streetwear brand with the same
cool power as a modern day Supreme. The clothing line was worth a whopping $275
million in 1996. What can we say? The ’80s and ’90s had a thing for neon-colored
activewear. Today, Giannulli is worth about $80 million,
according to Celebrity Net Worth. According to Variety, Loughlin and Giannulli
live in a 12,000 square-foot mansion in one of Los Angeles’ most star-studded neighborhoods
that was listed for $35 million in 2017. Basically, it’s the pinnacle of luxury, which
served these two well when they were both arrested — Loughlin reportedly used the
property as collateral to post her $1 million bond. That wasn’t the first time Loughlin and Giannulli
benefited from their real estate purchases. The pair purchased a different Bel Air home
in 2002 for around $8 million, which was renovated and sold in 2011 for $16.6 million. In 2010, they purchased a $7.5 million Beverly
Hills, Tuscan-style villa. They renovated that house, too, and sold it
for more than $18.2 million. Believe it or not, Fuller House was one of
the most-watched TV series of 2016. It held up to both The Walking Dead and Sunday
Night Football, which says a lot for a second incarnation of an old sitcom that doesn’t
even have the Olsen Twins in it. Each episode reportedly pulled in 14.4 million
viewers within 35 days of its Netflix premiere. It’s unclear exactly how much Loughlin made
from the Full House reboot, but it’s probably enough to afford at least some of the rent
on the Tanners’ undeniably expensive San Francisco home. Loughlin’s Fuller House salary hasn’t been
disclosed publicly, but co-star Jodie Sweetin’s payday was revealed during a 2017 child support
case. According to The Blast, the actress made a
whopping $26,000 per week playing Stephanie Tanner. As a smaller character who only appears in
13 episodes, Loughlin’s payday is likely far less than Sweetin’s, but still nothing to
sneeze at. According to Business Insider, Full House
had one of the most-watched series finales ever with a whopping 24.3 million viewers. With a fan base like that and the sheer amount
of reruns, you’d think the stars would be making bank long after the series stopped
airing new episodes. That’s apparently not the case. In an interview with PopEater, series star
Bob Saget revealed that he couldn’t retire with his Full House money, and he apparently
hardly makes anything on reruns. “There’s no Full House money. I didn’t own the show. You get nothing. Residual checks on shows are nothing. They buy a cycle. Full House just started a new cycle, so someone,
not me, is going to make a fortune. Whatever I get is found money. I hate talking about it. Nothing’s what anybody thinks.” If Danny Tanner isn’t lining his pockets on
reruns, imagine the pennies Loughlin must be earning from the show. Loughlin has a knack for turning small roles
into something greater. Not only did she manage to make herself a
regular with the Full House franchise for two separate series, but she also managed
to transform an initially small role in the 2013 Hallmark Canadian Western drama When
Calls the Heart into a years-long gig. In a 2017 interview with Today, Loughlin revealed
that When Calls the Heart was originally a TV movie that was hoping to get picked up
as a series. She signed on for just a single day of filming,
but producers were hopeful that her name would help catapult the film into long-term success. “And, it, now we’re heading into, Season 4
is airing, it’s looking good for Season 5.” Things are actually still looking good for
the Hallmark series, which is now in its sixth season. But things aren’t looking so good just for
Loughlin’s role. According to Deadline, the show will continue
without the actress following fallout from the scandal and her arrest. The show is temporarily on hiatus as producers
reportedly figure out what to do with the episodes they’ve already filmed. Loughlin’s paycheck took a major hit following
the news of her alleged involvement in the widely-publicized college admissions scam. “We are constantly hit all day long with
news, just by picking up your phone, headlines pop up, and it’s not always pleasant.” Hallmark completely cut ties with the star,
who had spent five years playing Abigail Stanton on When Calls the Heart. She also starred in some of the network’s
Christmas flicks, and no less than 15 installments of the channel’s Garage Sale Mystery movies. Following Loughlin’s departure, the Garage
Sale Mystery series was cancelled. In addition to Hallmark giving Loughlin the
boot, the actress will not appear in the fifth and final season of Fuller House. “How would you like to see it all end?” “Oh my goodness. I actually don’t want to see it all end.” Though she may have already been written off
the series before her legal drama, the Hollywood Reporter confirmed there were “no plans” to
bring back Aunt Becky. In truth, it’d probably make for a pretty
awkward Thanksgiving… Mossimo Giannulli’s clothing brand experienced
an astronomical rise and spectacular fall. According to the Los Angeles Times, “Giannulli’s company grew from a garage operation
in 1987 into a $72-million annual enterprise in eight years.” The majority of that success came from casual
menswear, rather than higher-end designs. Mossimo had grown to 300 employees, and in
1996, it went public on the New York Stock Exchange. At 32, Giannulli became the youngest chairman
of a company listed on the NYSE. Unfortunately, all good things can’t last. Just a year later, the company reportedly
lost $18.7 million. Ever wonder how Mossimo ended up going from
runways to Target? The whole thing went down in the new millennium,
an era where neon athletic wear fell out of favor for butterfly clips and Spice Girls-approved
pleather. According to the Los Angeles Times, Giannulli,
quote, “signed over rights to his name, signature, voice and personality” in 2000 to help save
his sinking company. The licensing deal actually worked, and the
designer was expected to earn at least $8.5 million in royalties the first year. Giannulli’s Target deal shocked longtime fans
of Mossimo because it positioned the brand away from the world of high fashion and made
it a mainstay for busy families on a budget. The brand went from being advertised in GQ
and Vanity Fair to slapping its name on area rugs and baby clothes. But Target believed it could rake in more
than $300 million worth of sales with the brand’s new image. The box store wasn’t wrong. Mossimo became one of the retailer’s “billion
dollar brands,” but Target announced plans in 2017 to phase out the product line. A decade after Mossimo’s IPO, Giannulli sold
his company for a reported $119 million in 2006 to Iconix Brand Group, which owns a variety
of clothing and accessories companies, including Ed Hardy, Joe Boxer, and Candies. That price tag may not seem like a lot compared
to Mossimo’s $275 million valuation in the ’90s, but the brand was projected to pull
in $20 to $25 million in royalties in 2007. In comparison, Mossimo saw $32 million in
sales in 1992, long before the Target licensing deal. In other words, while Target was still probably
making a killing on the brand, Giannulli’s cut was likely far less than when he was flying
solo in his company’s heyday. The same day Iconix announced its Mossimo
deal, it also agreed to buy Mudd — you know, those jeans you see at Kohl’s — for $88
million. This helped boost Mossimo’s outlook, and shares
of the brand closed up 40 percent following news of the acquisition. As part of the deal, Giannulli joined Iconix
“as creative director for his namesake brand,” so all in all, the whole thing sounded like
a decent decision for Giannulli. Loughlin and Giannulli’s collective $100 million
net worth might mean nothing if they’re forced to pay billions requested in a lawsuit filed
in March 2019. Loughlin and Giannulli were sued alongside
other parents indicted in “Operation Varsity Blues” for “no less than” $500 billion. The multi-claim fraud class action suit was
brought by Jennifer Kay Toy, an angry mom who just so happens to be an award-winning
former teacher. Toy claims her son, Joshua, had a 4.2 GPA
but didn’t get into some of the colleges wrapped up in the admissions scam even though he applied
to them, unlike Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade: “Clout is an actual word.” “Oh, I just thought it was like a social media
thing.” “Once again: Money on that education.” $500 billion a lot of money to demand, considering
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos — the “richest man in modern history” — only has $131 billion. Deadline reports that Toy’s suit is, quote,
“unlikely to be the last such lawsuit to be filed in the coming week and months out of
this sprawling conspiracy,” so Loughlin and Giannulli had better prepare for the worst
and hope for the best. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your

  4. BeZerka Viking says:

  6. Peter O says:

    Money can’t buy brains mutha phuckas

  7. Sandra Gonyea says:

    We need more celebrity names that were involved in this scam. No wonder Hollywood hates Trump. He's doing an amazing thing. God bless the President and his family.

  8. TheJeniferLeah says:

    Of course she should lose her job. Doesn’t every one else lose their job when they are charged with a crime? 🤷‍♀️

  9. Creepy Stack 10 says:

    could you imagine , your kid gets a 4.2 gpa and you’re prepared to take the financial burden of these monster school payments to a top school for four years, annnd they can’t even get in to their preferred choice b/c someone’s rich daughter who doesn’t even want to be there is making makeup videos from their dorm 🙄🙄🙄

  10. Massie Block says:

    They should pay their debt to society like everyone else

  11. Creepy Stack 10 says:

  12. Betty Cooper says:

    Sound like she didn't have much faith in her daughters on getting in the college's by themselves and if they couldn't do it by themselves put them in the college that they can afford and that they could do it by themselves see what she done to herself and to her daughters that's very poor parenting

  13. L Shit says:

  14. Sally Cannon says:

  15. Barbara Minchew says:


  16. Izzy Troyer says:

    all she says is basically.

  17. Karen Terrell says:

    Bla, Bla, Bla!!!👺

  18. Bri Can says:

    Sad that her mother thought so little of her that bribes were necessary. I believe she could have gone to USC on her marketing skills and sm following. That is why a lot of people go to school in the first place and Olivia was already successful as a teen. Also, not everyone needs college. Pushing your desires on your kids when they can be successful without school is shameful. Finally, all Loughlin needed to do was ask Caruso (her daughters best friends with his daughter) to 'put in a good word.' That is not illegal and people network like this all the time.
    The lawsuit from the low IQ mother and dolt son has no merit. She is an opportunist moron.

  19. mark miller says:

    olivia the clueless knows her crew career is over….lmao

  20. Marg P says:

    I get that mom is pissed but 500 billion dollars?? Isn’t that a little excessive? And I’m sure it wasn’t just her son who got screwed. Seems like everyone’s is just super greedy.

  21. Ric Rovey says:

  26. mybetterfilms says:

    Nah let her be the star of her own Lifetime movie

  27. Paul Gee says:

    No matter what happens, Lori & her husband (and her kids) will be "crying all the way to the bank".

    I #TripleDogDARE "Fuller House" to send Aunt Becky off with an off-screen, "She went off to college" line.

  28. Planet_Molly says:

    I hope all these people will ask for forgiveness and will also endeavor to somehow make it up to this country . And I hope they will be forgiven by those in this world who understand what forgiveness truly is.

  29. michii834 says:

    Lock her up!!!!

  30. Chelsea Ozanic says:

    Didn’t everyone already know all of this? It has been all over the news and they are pretty famous, so it’s not new news lol. 😂

  31. Kimberley Webb says:


  32. lin2theZ says:

    I think we should cut off her hair, make her walk through LA naked and go……shame, shame, shame

  33. Ramon Indra says:

    Dude mossino is a thing in 90

  34. Anthony Calore says:

    I don’t care what she did ! She is following other rich people ! It’s not a crime it’s a life style ! Besides she is so very insanely beautiful ! This is rare ! Her daughter is a clone ! She is a loving mom stuck in a twisted lifestyle ! Don’t hate u would have done the same if u were her !anyone to turn on her is guilty ! She is a sweet kind good hearted lady who would die for her kids ! U jealous hypocrites ! Go fuck your self

  35. Allison Shea says:

    So..they don't make any money from Full House, and she is a B-list actress who "magically" is worth $25 million? And Oprah is a billionaire for having a talk show? Hollywood is a joke! Hmmm..how DID these people make their money?

  36. Grey Matters says:

    So stop letting out the steam on this problem and bring out all the fake and purchased degrees and titles.

  37. Don K says:

    I actually own clothes from his fashion line…

  38. Mr Wisdom says:

    Can't say we feel sorry for them. Lori the truth eventually comes. You just didn't think you would be caught. 👓👁

  39. Charlotte Buchanan says:

    Why does everyone keep forgetting Bella??everyone's talking about Olivia Jade.

  40. Allison johnson says:

    If they can fire rosanne for her tweet ( her opinion) than they should fire this actress etc for her criminal behaviour ( not bad decision) as well.

  41. Amanda Garcia says:

    These two are SICK people. Sick. Their behavior has been DEPLORABLE and completely SHAMEFUL……worse than "common criminals" is the fact they "hid behind" their facade w/their FAKE PERSONALITIES portraying themselves as decent members of our society. Sick. Absolutely sickening.

  42. Lasna34 says:

    I doubt Lori Loughlin made 20 million from acting. She's a C list actress. Maybe B list on her Full House days. Most of the money is from her husband. Plus you don't know ppl's spending habits. Her 1st husband was rich as well. And I thought Mossimo went out of style since the 90s. I forgot that brand existed.

  43. Michael G says:

    Fake face award 8:45

  44. Ong Wai Kean says:

    This woman basically tarnished her own image.

  45. Ann Schiraldi says:

    College is not for everyone,,

  46. Doc Holiday says:

    Good spent your tons of money on lawers and food in prison . .

  47. nuke97 says:

    I wish the public would recognize that she is only the tip of the iceberg. Countless other wealthy families do what she did.

  48. #STAY DIERTY says:

    There gonna be poor AF after this case and all the lawsuits poor people aw the life that's coming those kids are gonna get a reality check boo hoo

  49. Elizabeth K says:

    Why hasn't Target distanced itself from that amoral man?

  50. BELIC68 says:

    Their Cavalier attitude towards college is despicable, when so many smart deserving kids would do anything to get into college, if you have to lie and bribe you're way into college, you shouldn't be in school at all

  51. Don Diego Vega says:

    About the 500 billion dollar law suit. That should be thrown out. Besides, the parents didn’t run the network of conspirators, one man did. He brought in the clients. Even the ones who foolishly paid 6 million dollars, they were clients. The coaches at the colleges who were paid big money, they are also guilty
    People listen to tv newscasts, but they are like the supermarket tabloids. They just report sensationalism. The truth is, this was not a con this is not a hoax this is not a scam. It really did work. And it was illegal.
    In my opinion, all of the parents should have to pay large fines which in turn should be turned over to the schools so that the students in the school will benefit.
    None of the parents supposedly have criminal records, this is a first offense so they should just get off with the fine.As for the faculty members that took money payment to lie, they have to go up for trial.
    Regarding the children, even though many of them are probably over 18 and are technically adults, I think they should be kept out of this completely. It was their parents doing they didn’t do anything other than go to school and study. Now they are futures are in jeopardy. It would be best to leave them out of it completely. They shouldn’t even be showing up to the courthouses.

  52. Tyrannosaurus Thunder says:

    What happened to the good old days when we used to BLOW our way to the top or get what we want???

  53. Devin Peirce says:

  56. Ababy says:

    People who look too good to be true usually are… Lori always looked too squeaky clean to be true.

  57. Clan Maccus says:

    Toxic family

  58. 256101120 says:

    Eprocto-Files Never said it was ok either way. Just saying, I think the parents we're more concerned about image than education.

  59. Rivienne M says:

    just the fact that Olivia doesn't care about taking school seriously says it all

  60. Brenda Echols says:

    Hated Full House! The twin toddlers always sounded coached on every line, not to mention sounding like a robot everytime they spoke. I thought it was kinda creepy. All these men and little girls. It wasnt funny either. Just plain weird show.

  61. markman manmark says:


  62. oregonxyz says:

    here come the huge lawsuits…

    funny thing is that the kids who would have went to college would just be working in restaurants at minimum wage after graduation

  63. eblgraphics says:

    Why cheat we in the name of Zeus cheat…

  64. Ol Sl says:

    Disgusting people. Target needs to cancel their Massimo contracts and Fuller House needs to axe Becky.

  68. Candis Carnegie says:

    Boy! Target dodged a bullet!!

  69. Talia T says:

    She should've realized her kids were too stupid to ever graduate from any college and saved herself the money and sent them to a community college. 🙄 Either that or pay for some tutors. Although I'm sure she would've figured out a way to pay for some sort of "liberal arts degree" for them though. 😂😂

  70. R Rockwell says:

    The daughter publicly admits her dad faked his way thru college. I don't believe he wasn't involved in this college bribe scandel.

  71. L Lynn says:

    I do indeed feel sympathetic toward her career after this scandal. However some point in life there has to be fair standards for everyone. You have broken the fair game by taking other less fortunate student college entrance spot. You could have arrange company or other business for your daughter (although it isn’t fair but still your daughters earned it like an inheritance or gift, most importantly it doesn’t effect other peoples chance in life) You have committed a sin thus need to endure the consequences.

  72. Fifth harmony for Life says:

    What are you doing LORI LOUGHIN ?

    What the hell are early aughts? 1:34

  74. Jacobim Magoto says:

    I will stop leaving disparaging remarks about Lori, if her husband comes forward and accepts responsibility for cheating, rather than throwing his wife under the bus

  75. Mel Vern says:

    All about "Aunt Becky." How bout her hubby, does he lose his clothing line at Target?

    Lori L. worked since she was 11 years old and a lot of people made money off of her hard work.

  82. Larry Judah says:

    Hi Nicki Swift!

    Absolutely YES. Lori and her husband have not only made there children damaged goods, eery have ruined countless lives of people that believe in honesty and integrity. Lets talk about a the lives that were changed from this scam for honest college kids that could have been admitted to UFC and made potentially awesome strides for humanity.

    If you want to dumb this down to basics. MAIL FRAUD.

  83. Leon Phantasm says:

    Talk about your rich white privilege. Bye Becky.

  84. Reggie Wagstaff says:

    Their older daughter looks like a werewolf. She better have a tight snapper if she wants to keep a man.

  85. Thea Jones says:

    This girl is simply clueless. Hopefully the parents will be going to the full house and lets see if they can game the system there. They better be consulting an expert in surviving prison, because with their I'm not concerned attitudes that's where their going. Signing autographs and smiling for the cameras outside of court doesn't look good to the prosecutors.

  86. Dr. No says:

    I hope they go to jail and do community service giving back to the poor

  99. Bella Veritas says:

    I used to like Lori Loughlin, but I have no respect for anyone who thinks that they are above the law. Actors and Actresses think that they are more important than they really are. All they are is court jesters, their job is only to entertain us.

  100. Belin Romero says:
