Dr. Dre Pokes Fun at Lori Loughlin, College Admissions Scandal, Says His Daughter Got into USC with 'No Jail Time'

In 1994, if you had to predict which of these two celebrities — sitcom TV's go-to nice girl Lori Loughlin, or Dr. Dre, one of the founding fathers of gangsta rap — would be arrested by the FBI in 2019, you might have guessed incorrectly. Perhaps that's why proud dad Dre spent his Saturday evening bragging that his daughter had been accepted into college without anyone breaking the law.

In a photo posted to his Instagram account Saturday night, Dre posed with his daughter Truly Young, who is seen holding an orientation packet and Certificate of Admission to the University of Southern California. 

"My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!" wrote the hugely successful producer and music industry mogul.

USC is one of several schools currently caught up in the college admissions scandal involving wealthy parents who paid significant amounts of money to William "Rick" Singer and his companies The Key Worldwide and The Edge in order to ensure that their children were accepted into higher-tier schools.

Loughlin and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, were arrested in March and accused of paying $500,000 to falsely make it appear as if their daughters Olivia Jade Giannulli, 19, and Isabella Rose Giannulli, 20, were recruits for University of Southern California's crew team. Both young women have since withdrawn from USC

Meanwhile, though Dre bragged about his daughter's ability to get into USC "on her own," The Hill points out that in 2013 the billionaire and Jimmy Iovine, Dre's partner in Beats Electronics, together donated $70 million to USC to launch the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.
