Gianni, Mossimo Giannulli’s Son claims his dad is in “solitary” while in prison for his part in the college-admissions scandal.
Life behind bars hasn’t been easy for Mossimo Giannulli. “He’s having a rough time,” a source tells Us of the fashion designer, who is currently serving a five-month sentence for his role in Operation Varsity Blues. Giannulli’s wife, Lori Loughlin, began her two-month stint back in October.
While his son, Gianni (from a previous relationship), recently claimed his father was locked in solitary confinement, the source says that the 57-year-old is actually in Covid-19-related protective custody. “Spending almost all his time in his cell has been very mentally taxing,” explains the source, noting that Giannulli is doing his best to stay positive. “He has been reading, writing letters to his family, and planning future business ventures,” the source adds, “and turning to prayer when he feels weak.”
