The blame game. After it was revealed that Lori Loughlin was allegedly involved in the nationwide college admissions scandal, her daughter Olivia Jade’s world was rocked. Now, the Full House star’s little girl “feels she is the victim,” a source told Us Weekly.
“She is still very upset at her parents,” the insider dished to the publication. “A lot of Olivia’s friends” are telling her “not to be mad at her parents since they were just trying to do the best they could for her.”
The brunette beauty, 54, and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters [20-year-old Isabella and 19-year-old daughter Olivia] designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”
Loughlin stood in front of a judge on March 13, after she was arrested and was then released from jail on $1 million bond. Her next court date is April 3.
Ever since the news dropped, the YouTube star lost brand deals with TRESemmé and Sephora and her clothing line collaboration with online boutique Princess Polly is no longer accessible.
“Olivia blames her mom and dad for this scandal and for the downfall of her career,” a source said. The California native “was initially trying to shrug off the scandal as something that would pass after a week and she could go back to her life.”
The insider added, “Now that her endorsement deals have fallen through, she is very upset with her parents. Olivia didn’t even show interest in going to college, she wanted to take time and work on her beauty career, but her parents were the ones who wanted her to get an education.”
In August 2018, Olivia made it clear via her YouTube channel that she really was only in college for “game days” and “partying.” However, Olivia ended up apologizing for her remarks. “I don’t know how much of school I’m gonna attend, but I’m gonna go in and talk to my deans and everyone, and hope that I can try and balance it all … But I do want the experience … I don’t really care about school, as you guys all know,” she admitted.
As of now, a source told In Touch that Olivia will not be returning to school because “everyone is talking about her and she’s terrified she’ll be attacked by bullies because of the scam. Right now, she feels like her whole life is over!”
