Olivia Jade Giannulli, the 19-year-old daughter of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, reportedly wants to return to University of Southern California in the wake of the Operation Varsity Blues college admissions scandal that has both of her parents looking at up to 40 years in prison. Since the scam broke wide open, both she and her sister Isabella Rose Giannulli, 20, have had their academic statuses put on hold while the university conducts an internal investigation.
USC said in a statement back in April that any students believed to be associated with the admissions scheme have had holds placed on their accounts, which prevents them 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.”
“Olivia Jade wants to go back to USC,” a source told Us. “She didn’t get officially kicked out and she is begging the school to let her back in.”
Unfortunately for Giannulli, 19, she’s unlikely to get her wish anytime soon. “She knows they won’t let her in, so she’s hoping this info gets out,” a separate insider 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.”
In a video posted to YouTube in February of 2018 called “My School Morning Routine,” then-high school senior Olivia Jade expressed her dislike of education in general.
“I don’t want to wake up. I don’t want to go to school. I hate school,” she told her subscribers at the time. “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.”
Giannulli lost her Sephora partnership in the wake of the scandal and has likewise not posted to social media or uploaded any new YouTube videos — but has been seen out and about partying in West Hollywood.
