Since her early years, Isabella has enjoyed lavish life, living in fashionable mansions in Bel Air and Beverly Hills with her parents, having many celebrity friends of her age. She has a younger sister, Olivia Jade, and a half-brother, Gianni.
Mother, Lori Loughlin
Born on 28 July 1964, in Queens, New York City USA, Lori Anne Loughlin is the oldest daughter to her parents, Lorellee and Joseph Roy Loughlin, who was an experienced foreman working for three decades for the New York Telephone Company.
In her teenage years Lori was introduced to a modeling agency in Manhattan, which offered her a contract, so Lori became a print model before she even turned 12. At the age of 15 she debuted as a TV series actress, appearing in “The Edge of Night” as the dancer Jody Travis in 1980. After several minor roles in sitcoms, Lori landed the role of Rebecca Donaldson in ABC’s “Full House” (1987 – 1995). She could also be seen in such series as “Summerland”, “In Case of Emergency” and the spin-off from “Beverly Hills, 90210” from 2008 to 2011, landing the role of Debbie Wilson. Her latest roles were quite successful, including the sequel series’ of “Full House”, and Netflix’s “Fuller House”. However, she was dropped from all her projects after the exam cheating scandal around her daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose.
Father, Mossimo Giannulli
Isabella’s father, Mossimo Gianulli, born in 1963 into the family of a landscape architect and a homemaker, soon understood what makes the world go round, and started small businesses from his early years. After studying for three years in the University of Southern California, he dropped all in 1987 to fully focus on his clothing brand, “Mossimo”, founded in 1986. In only two years his business earned over $4 million, continuing to grow. His clothing line included casual teenage clothes (jeans, T-shirts, underwear), and then expanded to sweatshirts and sweaters. In 1998 Mossimo took the most serious misstep in his career – he decided to change the concept of the brand from the beach wear to high-fashion, but the company lost over $45 million, dropping from $50 million to $4.5 million in a year.
In 2006, Iconix Brand Group acquired the brand from Mossimo, for over $27 million.
Sister, Olivia Jade Giannulli
Isabella’s younger sister, Olivia Jade Giannulli was born on 28 September 1999, in New York City USA. A YouTube star and Instagram sensation, she enjoyed her luxurious life from her teenage years. In 2017 her YouTube channel gained over one million subscribers, while her Instagram account is followed by 1.4 million subscribers. She had several commercial contract with such cosmetic brands as Sephora, TRESemmé and others, but they all distanced her after Olivia was involved in the scandal of her enrollment at the University of Southern California.
Right after her parents were both arrested and accused of bribery, she stopped posting new videos on her YouTube channel, later admitting in one of her Instagram posts that she wasn’t in fact interested in higher education, and only wanted to enjoy the ‘college life’ and visit sports matches and parties at the campus.
Isabella matriculated from Marymount All Girls Catholic High School in 2016, enrolling at the University of South Carolina. However, she was subsequently expelled from the college due to the nationwide bribery scandal around the university.
Isabella hasn’t had much of a chance to develop her career successfully, as she’s only started growing as an actress, appearing in “Home & Family” and “Alone Together” TV series’, and such TV films as “Every Christmas Has a Story” (2016) and “Homegrown Christmas” (2018). Her acting career experienced a crisis as her family was involved into the bribery scandal, and her mother, sister and Isabella herself lost almost all their jobs and contracts, as well as their reputations.
Personal life, rumors about her relationship with Andrew Beyer turned out to be false
Isabella has kept her private life low-key, however, she gave way to rumors about her relationship with Andrew Beyer, her schoolmate and, as, she once wrote, her ‘5th grade crush’. Isabella posted many photos of them holding hands, hugging and even kissing to cheeks, sprouting the rumors around their affair.
Nevertheless, they appeared to be just friends, as Andrew has recently announced his engagement to his long-term girlfriend Sophie Sitinas.
Isabella’s parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, were arrested on 13 March 2019; the couple allegedly paid $500,000 to the Key Worldwide Foundation supposedly as a donation, which in fact is suspected of being a bribe. Lori and Mossimo were accused of influencing the results of entrance exams to the University of Southern California, while the admissions committee of the college were assured that Isabella and her younger sister Olivia Jade would join the USC’s women’s rowing team. The court stated that neither of the girls were ever involved in sports, and neither of them was going to train at all.
Lori and Mossimo were released on $1 million bail bond, while they were also accused of money laundering, rejecting the plea deal. However, the Giannullis are now indicted to devalue the school’s degree, as the alumni of the University of South California are facing troubles during their job interviews, as employers doubt their education was fairly obtained. However, both Isabella and her sister Olivia Jade keep sharing photos of their luxury life, not caring much about the fuss around their family. On 22 October 2019 Lori Loughlin was charged with conspiring by US Attorney Andrew Lelling.

Isabella develops her Instagram account, trying to attract more subscribers to benefit from sponsored posts, but the number of her followers has only reached 300,000.
