Lori Loughlin's Daughter Is Reportedly Moving out Amid the College Bribery Scandal
Nineteen-year-old Olivia Jade reportedly moved out of her parents’ Bel-Air mansion amid all the media attention for privacy reasons.
With media attention around the college admissions scandal not letting up, paparazzi show up at the family home every day.
It’s very stressful for everyone. Olivia has decided to move out for now. She doesn’t want to be followed when she leaves her home,” a source told PEOPLE.
According to the source, Olivia is doing well under the circumstances and is “trying to focus on her own life as well.”
Olivia Jade lost endorsement deals, and several partnerships after news of the scandal broke, and she aims to rebuild her once-flourishing social media business. “She wants to focus on rebuilding her business,” the source added. “She spends time with friends and other vloggers that inspire her.”
However, another source told E! News that Olivia Jade “hasn’t been staying there full time for the last few months” and took some more clothes and personal items from her parents’ home last week. "She wants more privacy," the source added.
On Saturday the 19-year-old got spotted at IKEA in Burbank, California, shopping for home goods in oval sunglasses, a pink baseball cap, grey sweatpants, and a black crop top as she tried to go by unnoticed.
Although, it is alleged that the lack of privacy is not the only reason Olivia Jade moved out of her parents’ home. A second source told E! News that the admissions scandal left the relationship with her parents in a bad place.
"Olivia is furious with her parents, and it's going to take a lot to repair their relationship," the source said. "She blames them entirely and feels they have ruined her career."
The source added that Olivia is overwhelmed by the scrutiny her family face because of the admissions scandal, and feeling “completely lost” and not knowing how to deal with the stress.
Olivia is technically still active on social media, even though she hasn’t posted anything since the scandal broke and disabled comments on her recent posts.
Her sister, Isabella, on the other hand, deactivated her Instagram account shortly after Lori and Mossimo pleaded not guilty on all charges in April this year.
Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are among dozens of parents that got charged in the college admissions scandal. They allegedly paid $500,000 to get their daughters, Olivia Jade, and Isabella into USC by passing them off as members of the USC crew team, when neither of them rowed before.
According to reports by USA Today in late March, both sisters remain enrolled at USC, but TMZ reported that they don’t intend on returning to school “for fear of bullying.” Neither of the sisters has publicly spoken out about the scandal.
According to the US Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts, Laura will plead guilty to conspiracy to commit racketeering.
