Olivia Jade isn’t speaking to her parents after college admissions scandal
Olivia Jade Giannulli, whose parents, Lori Loughlinand Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly bribed her way into college, is living with her boyfriend in Malibu to escape the backlash — and giving her mom and dad the silent treatment, according to a new report.
“Olivia has been staying with her boyfriend in Malibu. She’s not talking to her parents right now,” a source told Us Weekly Thursday. “Olivia hasn’t been out with friends. She is completely in hiding right now. Olivia is posting private Stories on her Instagram, using the only-close-friends option, to share her days on social media with her close circle.”
Another insider told the gossip outlet that the 19-year-old beauty and YouTuber “is still very upset at her parents” — but her friends are encouraging her to forgive them.
“A lot of Olivia’s friends have been telling her not to be mad at her parents since they were just trying to do the best they could for her, but she doesn’t listen,” the source said. “Olivia feels she is the victim.”
Prosecutors charge that “Fuller House” star Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli allegedly paid $500,000 to get Olivia and her 20-year-old sister, Isabella Rose Giannulli, into the University of Southern California by pretending the sisters were competitive rowing recruits.
Both parents were released on $1 million bond each.
Both Olivia and Isabella have decided to drop out of USC because they’re afraid of being bullied over the scandal. However, the second insider told Us Weekly that Olivia “is still enrolled” at the campus, “but she has withdrawn physically, she’s not there.”
Olivia Jade has amassed nearly 2 million views on her YouTube videos. But her career has taken a hit in the scandal, which caused her to lose partnerships with TRESemmé and Sephora.
