New reports are coming in stating that former “Fuller House” actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli enjoyed a secret trip to a very exclusive California golf resort after they served their respective jail sentences for their roles in the college admissions scandal.
The Sun reported that Loughlin and Giannulli were spotted enjoying some downtime at The Madison Club in La Quinta late last month.
“They arrived together in the afternoon of Friday, April 23 and kept a super low profile,” an insider said. “It was the perfect high-end place for them to reconnect after such a long time apart and Mossimo was released from home confinement.
“The Madison Club is one of the most exclusive country clubs in the world and it’s somewhere they clearly knew they wouldn’t be photographed,” the source added.
Loughlin and Giannulli are believed to have stayed at the A-list resort for that entire weekend before returning to their home in Los Angeles.
The Madison Club has long been a celebrity hotspot, with the club’s description reading, “Whether it is championship-caliber golf, gourmet cuisine, a multitude of outdoor activities, or luxurious residences, The Madison Club is the finest family-oriented community in the Coachella Valley.”
The Kardashians have vacationed at the resort in the past, and Sylvester Stallone has previously owned a $3.35million home in the community. Membership at the club includes a one-time $600 initiation fee, and it can cost up to $2,000 a month.
Loughlin and Giannulli pled guilty last year to charges related to them allegedly paying $500,000 in bribe money to have their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before. Loughlin served two months in prison, and was released at the end of December, while Giannulli served five months and was released earlier in April.
A source recently told US Weekly that Loughlin and Giannulli want to leave Los Angeles and buy a home in Idaho so they can get away from everything and “work on their marriage.”
“They recently downsized from their spacious home in Bel Air, which overlooked the Bel-Air Country Club, to a smaller home in the guard-gated community of Hidden Hills,” the source said. “They had looked at homes earlier this year in Idaho and were prepared to move out of Los Angeles, but eventually decided to stay as their daughters really wanted them close by at the time.”
The source added that they feel more comfortable leaving California now that “both girls have their own places and are trying to lead a normal life with their own friends and business opportunities.”
