Just when you thought this case couldn't get worse, it definitely does for Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman. The two moms, who bribed thousands of dollars to get their daughters into ivy league schools, are now being sued for their actions. A mom whose son didn't get into college is suing Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman for $500 billion.
Yes, you read that right. 500 billion dollars. Not only have Lori Loughlin and her daughter Olivia Jade been kicked out of brand deals, now they will have to deal with an even bigger consequence. There has been no word on if Felicity Huffman has been dropped by any companies she currently works with or if Lori's husband Mossimo has lost any deals.
Jennifer Kay Toy is the mother who is suing the two as well as everyone else involved because "legitimate applicants to colleges were denied access due to the illegal activities." She's not wrong. In the statement, Jennifer says that her son Joshua had a 4.2 grade-point average, which is higher than most. He wasn't accepted into multiple schools, and she said she now knows why.
She said in the lawsuit that she feels as though his hard work and 'rights to a fair chance' were stolen. Jennifer continues and says, "I’m outraged and hurt because I feel that my son, my only child, was denied access to a college not because he failed to work and study hard enough but because wealthy individuals felt that it was OK to lie, cheat, steal and bribe their children’s way into a good college. I’m now aware of the massive cheating scandal wherein wealthy people conspired with people in positions of power and authority at colleges in order to allow their children to gain access to the very colleges that Joshua was rejected from."
Jennifer also said, "I’m not a wealthy person, but even if l were wealthy l would not have engaged in the heinous and despicable actions of defendants.” She did not explain why she is suing for 500 billion dollars, but she is suing every single person involved in the case.
It seems like Lori, Felicity, and everyone else involved in the case just got a lot more put on their shoulders. $500 billion is a large amount of money, but there are more than 1000 people involved in this scam. It will be interesting to see how this lawsuit plays out.
