AceShowbiz - Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade was reportedly aware of what her parents did to get her and sister Isabella Rose accepted into college. The 19-year-old beauty vlogger "fully knew" that her mother Lori and father Mossimo Giannulli allegedly bribed her way into the University of Southern California, but didn't see anything wrong with it.
"Olivia fully knew what her parents did to get her into USC, but didn't think there was anything wrong with it," a so-called insider tells Us Weekly, two months after news of the college admissions scandal broke. "She didn't get into any other California schools."
Olivia was reportedly upset at her parents after the news broke and caused her to lose some endorsement deals. She has since moved from her family home, but a source said in April that she has realized "that they were just trying to do what's best for her."
Another insider said earlier this month that Olivia "has been very supportive of her parents" amid the scandal. "She now knows that this is very serious and has been calling her mom and dad every day to check in and see what is the latest with the upcoming court dates," so the source dished.
Another report recently said that Olivia is yearning to go back to USC, where her status is under review amid the bribery allegations against her parents. "Olivia Jade wants to go back to USC," a source told Us Weekly earlier this month. "She didn't get officially kicked out and she is begging the school to let her back in."
Knowing the odds, another source said, "She knows they won't let her in, so she's hoping this info gets out." The so-called insider added, "She wants to come out looking like she's changed, learned life lessons and is growing as a person, so she for sure wants people to think she is interested in her education."
Lori and Mossimo have pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering to get their daughters admitted into USC. They are facing up to 40 years in prison if found guilty.
