The actor, who played Danny Tanner on both the ABC series and its Netflix reboot, Fuller House, implied that commenting on his friend’s issue was a no-win situation.
‘We’re in such a place where no matter what I say I’m screwed, and I just love her,’ he said. ‘That’s where I am on that.’
Speaking with Us Weekly in December 2019, the one-time America’s Funniest Home Videos host explained why he remained a friend to the star amid the troubled times.
‘I don’t cut people that I love from my life unless they shot me in the eye,’ he said. ‘No matter what, everyone does something in their life that comes out in the press – no matter what we do. I just love her and I’ll always love her.’

Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, 57, were initially arrested in March 2019.
In May of 2020, both pleaded guilty in connection with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, admitting they paid an admissions fixer $500,000 to arrange for the University of Southern California to recruit daughters Isabella Rose, 22, and Olivia Jade, 21, onto the school’s rowing team, despite that they had no background in the sport.
In agreement with their plea deals, Loughlin agreed to pay fines of $150,000 and complete 100 hours of community service, while Giannulli is slated to pay fines of $250,000, finish 250 hours of community service and remain on probation for two years.
Loughlin on October 30 entered a Dublin, California federal prison and was released in December. Giannulli’s currently in custody in Lompoc, California serving a five-month prison sentence.
