Olivia Jade, who once infamously shared how little interest she had in her college education, is now reportedly desperate to return to the University of Southern California where her status is currently under review.
19-year-old Olivia Jade Giannulli is the youngest daughter of actress Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, both indicted in the college bribery scandal shocking the nation since March when the illegal scheme was uncovered.
Just like her older sister, 20-year-old Bella, Olivia Jade remains suspended from the University of Southern California since their parents were accused of getting the young women in that university through illegal means.
But a source close to Olivia Jade recently told US Weekly that the makeup enthusiast and YouTuber is “begging the school to let her back in,” mostly in order to rehabilitate her public image, as another informer suggested.
Even when she hasn’t been officially expelled from the high education institution, Olivia Jade allegedly has no real hopes of being allowed to stay in the school, and all she would be interested in is in getting this story about her spread.
“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,” an insider explained.
Olivia Jade and Bella’s academic status at USC was put on hold in April 2019, soon after their parents were arrested in relation to the scheme, both facing conspiracy and money laundering charges.
“USC has placed holds on the accounts of students who may be associated with the alleged admissions scheme,” read a statement issued by the college.
“I don’t want to wake up. I don’t want to go to school. I hate school. My school is super chill and cool and nice to me about working. And they’re super supportive with my job and stuff. I like my school, I just don’t like school in general."
“This prevents the students from registering for classes (until they have agreed to participate in the review of their case), withdrawing from the university, or acquiring transcripts while their cases are under review,” it followed.
While the bribery scandal has put Olivia Jade in the center of the public eye with the shocking news of her mother, the “Fuller House” star, facing up to 40 years in prison as she refuses to plead guilty to the charges, it is not her first college-related scandal.
Back in 2018, Olivia Jade was the subject of controversy among her fans for her comments about how little interest she had on getting a college education.
After finishing her high school education in a private school, and ahead of her now controversial admission to USC, she mentioned how busy her work schedule was going to be now that she was creating a beauty collection with Sephora, leaving her little time to commit to her studies.
“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 confessed.
Her own subscribers and fans were greatly disappointed by her shameless privilege and spoiled views about getting a higher education, something that millions struggle to accomplish.
Despite apologizing for her insensitive and shallow remarks, once she was attending USC she once again admitted not to like “school in general.”
“I don’t want to wake up. I don’t want to go to school. I hate school. My school is super chill and cool and nice to me about working. And they’re super supportive with my job and stuff. I like my school, I just don’t like school in general,” she said.
Whether Olivia Jade knew about the means her parents used to secure her a place in USC or not, her comments certainly aggravate the public outrage surrounding these wealthy families.
