How much did Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli sell their house for?

However, though Loughlin and Giannulli’s original asking price was $28.65 million, the couple sold their Spanish-style home for much less.

Why did Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli sell their house?

Loughlin and Giannulli first put their home on the market in January, with a source telling Entertainment Tonight at the time that the couple’s decision to sell their mansion came as a “shock” to those close to them. “Everyone seems shocked Lori and Mossimo would put their house up for sale in the midst of their legal troubles, but they’ve wanted to sell their home for a long time,” the insider said at the time.

The source continued, “They have been through so much in the last year, and selling hasn’t been their priority. At this point, the case is taking much longer than they originally thought, so they decided to put it on the market again. It is one step they are taking in an attempt to get back to their normal lives.”

The source also confirmed at the time that Loughlin and Giannulli’s decision to sell their home wasn’t because of financial troubles but something the couple had wanted to do for a while before the college admissions scandal turned their worlds upside down in March 2019. “They aren’t selling their home because they are cash strapped,” the insider said. “They are doing very well financially.”

When were Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli arrested for the college admissions scandal?

Loughlin and Giannulli were arrested in March 2019 after accusations that they paid bribes of $500,000, so their daughters, Bella, 21, and Olivia Jade, 20, would be admitted to the University of Southern California as crew recruits, even though neither daughter played the sport. The couple’s guilty plea came a month after a judge refused to drop their charges.
