AceShowbiz - Lori Loughlin is upset with Morrie Tobin for alerting the FBI about the college admissions scandal, now known as the Varsity Blues Scandal. A source says the 54-year-old actress feels "betrayed" by the finance executive, who tipped off the feds about the alleged widespread bribery scam, and blames him for her problem with the law.
"Several parents are hurt, disgusted and feeling betrayed by the man who ratted out the Varsity Blues scandal, Morrie Tobin, including Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman," the source tells HollywoodLife.com. "Lori Loughlin is very upset and up in arms over what Morrie did."
The source adds, "She is placing a lot of this blame on him. She, along with several other parents cannot believe he would do this. They're livid. A lot of parents who feel just as stunned are rallying around her."
The "Fuller House" star and "Desperate Housewives" alum Felicity Huffman were among 50 people arrested in the FBI's Operation Varsity Blues, which exposes widespread college admissions bribery involving top universities like University of Southern California, Yale and Stanford. Felicity was arrested on March 12 along with college prep business founder William Rick Singer, who was allegedly at the helm of it. Lori's husband Mossimo Giannulli was also arrested on Tuesday, while the actress turned herself in to the authorities a day later.
Lori and her husband are accused of paying "bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team-despite the fact that they did not participate in crew-thereby facilitating their admission to USC."
As for Felicity, she allegedly paid $15,000 to help one of her children get a higher SAT score. Her husband, actor William H. Macy, is not arrested in the case.
