The 'Fuller House' star was released from prison this week after being jailed for her part in the college admissions scandals alongside her husband Mossimo Giannulli.

A source told E! News: "She texted friends that she was out. She is relieved and incredibly happy it's over with, but she is still very worried about Mossimo Giannulli and upset for him."

Whilst Lori has finished her jail sentence, she is still due to serve 100 hours of community service as well as continue to be supervised for the next two years as part of her release.

However, Mossimo is still expected to remain in prison into April 2021 as he was given a five month prison stint when they were sentenced compared to Lori's two months.

Lori had been hoping to  be released from prison before Christmas.

It was revealed, before her release, that her time at Dublin Federal Prison in Northern California for her role in the college admissions scandal could come before December 25.

December 27 falls on a Sunday, and the Bureau of Prisons states that they "may release an inmate whose release date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, on the last preceding weekday". Usually, that would mean Lori would be released on Friday, which is December 25, but because that is Christmas Day, she could have been let out even earlier on December 24.

Lori, 56, was sentenced to jail alongside having to pay a $150,000 fine and complete 150 hours of community service after she pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bribery, when she offered to pay a $500,000 bribe to the University of Southern California to ensure her two daughters - Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli - were offered places at the school.
