On Wednesday morning, Lori Loughlin’s youngest daughter was spotted leaving a nightclub after partying with friends. It appears the young girl is determined to live her life despite her parents being implicated in the college admissions scandal.
Olivia Jade Giannulli, 19, was captured on camera at around 2 a.m. leaving Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood with some friends. Lori Loughlin’s daughter was dressed casually in a pair of plaid pants, a black shirt, and a denim jacket for the outing.
Olivia chose to go out during a critical time in the college admissions scandal just as things appeared to get tougher for her mother and father, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli. However, this wasn’t the first time she was spotted clubbing.
Last week, she was photographed at YouTube star, Jake Paul's party. Her images were captured via Instagram and Snapchat, then posted to Twitter.
Another source has claimed that the teenager has become a bit unruly in the wake of the scandal. The insider alleged that she wasn’t listening to her parents anymore.
The source said:
“Olivia Jade is totally over it and won’t listen to anything her parents say now. She is in no way ready to forgive anything her parents have done. Lori doesn’t understand Olivia’s reaction. She seems to feel her act was selfless and misunderstood and she wants to prove she had all the best intentions and even that she was, in some way, duped into breaking the law.”
On Tuesday, a USC soccer coach involved in the scam secured a plea deal. Sources said the coach could divulge crucial information about the motives of the rich parents who wanted to get their students into the university.
Olivia’s parents were accused of allegedly paying $500k in bribes to get Olivia and her sister, Isabella Rose Giannulli into USC. The two sisters were marked as crew recruits even though they didn’t play the sport.
It’s also possible that Olivia could be called to testify in her parents' case. The girl’s parents are facing charges of bribery and money laundering.
They are among 50 people who’ve been implicated in the case. “Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman is one of the parents who are also facing charges in the scam.
It seems Olivia has been using partying as a way to deal with the stress of the scandal facing her family. In April, she was spotted at the home of YouTube star David Dobrik on a Thursday night in Studio City, CA.
According to reports, the teenager appeared to be having fun but didn’t forget to be careful of the public scrutiny she was under. It was alleged that she asked the partygoers to avoid using their cell phones.
