Lori Loughlin's daughter was vacationing on the USC Trustee yacht when the scandal broke

She sunbathed while her parents faced accusations that they had sinned.

The daughter of actress Lori Loughlin was supposedly vacationing in the Bahamas on the yacht of Rick Caruso, president of the Board of Trustees of the University of Southern California, as her parents were named on Tuesday in a federal indictment charging them with fraud to take his daughters to school

Loughlin's daughter, USC freshman Olivia Jade Giannulli, was spending a vacation with Caruso's daughter, Gianna, also a student of the USC, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Caruso owns a 216-foot vessel called Invictus.

Neither the students nor Caruso are charged with any crime, but Loughlin and her husband are among dozens of wealthy people, federal authorities accused of paying up to $ 6 million in bribes to get their children into elite schools. Loughlin, a regular at Hallmark and star of the comedy "Full House" who returned in the sequel series "Fuller House", and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $ 500,000 to make their two daughters are fraudulently accepted by the USC. Each was released with a $ 1 million bonus on Wednesday.

"My daughter and a group of students left for spring break before the government announcement yesterday," TMU Caruso, a multi-million dollar developer, told TMZ on Wednesday. "Once we realized the investigation, the young woman decided that it would be better for her to return home."

The Loughlin representative said he had no "information" about the report. A spokesperson for Caruso did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comments.



Olivia Jade Giannulli allegedly spent the night on the yacht of the president of the custodians of the USC, while her mother, Lori Loughlin, was being accused of paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to be admitted to school under false pretenses.

Giannulli, an influential person on social media with millions of followers on YouTube and Instagram, attracted more scrutiny this week with a video he posted before starting the fall semester of last year, saying He did not care at school and was only there to experience the days of play and the "party". He also turned his life as a student into a marketing opportunity, publishing branded entries for Amazon and other companies.

Caruso has condemned the USC employees involved in the scheme, which included the creation of false recruitment profiles that made Loughlin's daughters appear to be crew athletes.

"The charges filed today against USC employees are troubling and the alleged activity is absolutely wrong," Caruso said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday. "I am sad for any innocent student who might be impacted, there is no other option than zero tolerance for this type of behavior, and everyone involved will be responsible."
