Oh, Olivia. Olivia Jade‘s past comments on her vlogs have been haunting her — mainly because of how ironic most of them are. In March, the 19-year-old went on the Zach Sang Show to open up about her life as an influencer. “It’s the coolest thing getting DMs from girls, like, ‘I’m applying to college right now. What did you do?’ Like, all this stuff,” the vlogger, who has almost 2 million YouTube subscribers, said at the time. “It’s fun.” We’re guessing Olivia didn’t give that great advice considering she might have not filled out any college applications — by herself.
Ironically, the beauty guru’s appearance on the radio show took place just days before news broke that her mother and father, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, had been arrested for being involved in a college admissions scam. The 54-year-old and her husband, 55, were indicted on March 12 after they allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”
If fans really want advice on how to master college apps, they should most definitely not ask Olivia. According to documents obtained by In Touch, Lori and Mossimo emailed William Rick Singer, the owner of a Newport Beach college admission company, in December 2017 “to request guidance on how to complete the formal USC application, in the wake of her [other] daughter’s provisional acceptance as a recruited athlete.” William allegedly “responded by directing an employee to submit the applications” for Olivia.
Unfortunately for the brunette beauty, college was a huge discussion point in her most recent YouTube videos — simply because she loves giving viewers an inside look at her daily life. In a video posted on August 14, the social media star took to her channel to let fans know how she was feeling about starting her new chapter of being a freshman at USC. “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.” Yup, talk about awkward. Well, we know how much school she is going to attend now – none! 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.”
The Fuller House star and the fashion designer were last spotted arriving at their scheduled court appearance on April 3, in Boston. A day before her court appearance on April 2, she was seen showing off her Aunt Becky smile, giving out autographs left and right. Clearly, Lori’s acting skills are still fantastic because life can’t be all that great at the moment.
