Lori Loughlin and husband Massimo Giannulli are still dealing with the legal repercussions of their alleged involvement in the widespread college admissions scandal.
Their daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, is also dealing with the consequences.
Following the scandal, all students linked to the scam had their accounts put on hold by the University of Southern California, according to Insider. That means they are unable to register for classes, withdraw from the university, or receive their transcripts. Olivia and older sister Isabella reportedly left the school voluntarily in the midst of the scandal. Now a source is telling Us Weekly that Olivia wants to go back to USC.
“Olivia Jade wants to go back to USC,” the source explained. “She didn’t get officially kicked out and she is begging the school to let her back in.”
Of course, Olivia didn’t seem like a particularly eager student when she was attending the school and during the allegedly fraudulent application process. The social media personality posted many videos openly lamenting the fact that she had to go to school. Despite some of her sponsorships being linked to her college student lifestyle, Olivia’s heart didn’t seem to be in it.
“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,” the then-high-schooler expressed in one now-infamous YouTube video. She expressed similar sentiments about college in another YouTube video.
Olivia is reportedly hoping that a return to school would help her overhaul her damaged public image in the wake of the scandal. Another source explained, “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.”
Oof. What a mess.
