AceShowbiz - Olivia Jade couldn't completely cut all ties with her former boyfriend Jackson Guthy after they called it quits last month. The daughter of Lori Loughlin reportedly still relies on her ex for moral support amid the college admissions scandal.
"Olivia and Jackson are not back together, but she calls him to hang out and still seems emotionally dependent on him a little bit," a source tells Us Weekly. "They are still friends and have the same group of friends, so they will continue to see each other, but are not romantic."
The former couple was spotted together for the first time since their split in Los Angeles on Friday, June 14. At the time, the duo "seemed carefree and were laughing" as they walked down Sunset Boulevard together, according to the source.
Another source told the site that the 19-year-old YouTube star and the 23-year-old singer "run in the same circles and still share a lot of mutual friends."
Olivia and Jackson separated in May as he has been busy working on his music career. "Olivia and Jackson have been cooling off for a couple months," a so-called insider said at the time. "They aren't together anymore, but are still very cordial and really do remain friends."
Another insider claimed that the college bribery case involving Olivia's parents Lori and Mossimo Giannulli factored into their split. "Jackson broke up with Olivia because it was all getting to be too much for him," said the source. "It wasn't necessarily affecting his career, but the fact that he couldn't be seen out in public with Olivia was difficult."
A few weeks later, Olivia's sister Isabella Rose reportedly also broke up with her own boyfriend Nick Penske after dating for around a year. Similar to Olivia's case, the college admissions scandal allegedly caused a strain in Bella's relationship with Nick.
