Entertainment And News

She is a USC student.

There is a warrant out for Lori Loughlin's arrest over allegations that she, her husband, and nearly 50 other people paid enormous bribes to get their children into elite colleges. Mossimo Giannulli was arrested and posted bail in the amount of $1 million. Attention has now turned to Loughlin's 19-year-old daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli. Olivia is an influencer who goes by the name Olivia Jade. She has more than one million followers on IG and nearly two million subscribers to her YouTube channel. Olivia is a freshman at the University of Southern California but now it seems her admission to that university may be the result of a $500,000 bribe her parents paid to get her and her older sister into USC. Who is Olivia Jade?

1. She is Lori Loughlin's youngest daughter

Olivia is the younger of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli's two daughters. Loughlin and her husband are accused of paying bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their daughters admitted to USC as recruits to the USC crew team, despite the fact that they never participated in crew either before or during college. Olivia Jade's older sister Isabella was admitted to USC as a crew recruit and according to the FBI documents, Loughlin and Mossimo wanted the same treatment for Olivia Jade.

3. She has a YouTube channel

Olivia vlogs on her YouTube channel posting videos of her makeup routine or of her getting ready for a party at USC. In early February, Olivia tweeted: “YouTube will always be my #1 passion. I promise I’d way rather be filming 24/7 than sitting in 6 hours of classes straight but an education is also super important to me.” In early September Olivia uploaded a college dorm tour video full of Amazon products (she claimed the video was not sponsored by Amazon, however she did note on an IG post on the same topic that it was a sponsored post.)

In August 2018, Olivia Jade posted a video to YouTube in which she told her nearly two million followers that she didn't care about school and was only going to college to party. “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 of like game days, partying…I don’t really care about school, as you guys all know.” She was largely bashed by her followers as being "privileged" and "spoiled."

5. She turned comments off on her IG

Between her parents allegedly bribing officials to get her into USC and her immature comments on her YouTube channel the internet has about had it with her and took to her IG to let her know. “How about you put some effort into using your brain instead? Maybe that way you could get into USC by your own merits. Or how about being happy with wherever you got to go to continue your education because that in itself is a privilege. Your family disgusts me,” user @Avril.616 wrote on Olivia Jade’s Instagram page. She has disabled commenting on her account.

6. She accused her dad of faking his way through USC

In an interview on the Zach Sang Show on March 8, Olivia Jade said her dad was never enrolled at the University of Southern California. “He has a really crazy story in college, He, like, built his whole entire brand and he wasn’t actually, like, ever … enrolled in college.But he, like, faked his way through it and then he started his whole business with tuition money that his parents thought was going to college. That’s, like, such a different time. I don’t know if I was supposed to say that, but it’s OK.”
