Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade is reportedly furious her parents 'ruined' her life with college admissions scandal
Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade is reportedly furious with her parents after they "ruined" her life with the college admissions bribery scandal.
The social media star is said to be "devastated because everything she built imploded before her eyes" after her mother and father were arrested for allegedly participating in a cheating scam to get their two daughters into higher education.
Authorities claim the couple paid $500,000 in bribes to have their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California (USC) as recruits to the rowing team, even though neither participates in the sport.
The 19-year-old beauty blogger has been dropped by major brands including Sephora and TRESemme and she and 20-year-old sister Isabella have dropped out of the University of Southern California (USC), amid an ongoing investigation by school officials.
While it's said that Isabella is more upset about giving up her college degree, Olivia Jade is more concerned with the damage to her online brand.
"Bella and Olivia are suffering in their own ways from the fallout of their parents' decisions," a source allegedly told Entertainment Tonight this week, adding that Bella was "far more invested in college and would have loved to have completed USC".
They continued to report that Olivia didn't want to attend higher education in the first place, stating: "[Olivia] is really angry with her parents because she told them she did not want to go to college and she was pushed. She has been passionate about her career and wanted to work and was doing well, but that wasn't enough.
"Her parents said she would have to juggle college and her career. Now she's devastated because everything she built imploded before her eyes. She feels they ruined everything."
The source added that the YouTube star is so humiliated by the scandal that she "doesn't even want to go out".
"Bella and Olivia have a very tight-knit group of friends who have been there to support them," they explained. "They've needed that support because they're being attacked at every turn."
After the alleged scandal emerged, a number of Olivia's old video resurfaced, seemingly revealing her true feelings about schooling.
In one video filmed on her last day of high school, Olivia joked that she rarely attended classes.
"I'm, like, excited to go prank my, like, do the school prank, but I'm also literally never at school that I think my class doesn't even — and maybe they forget I go there!" the teen said, before saying she was "just kidding!"
The 19-year-old previously came under attack for confessing in her vlogs that she didn't care about college "but wanted to experience game days and partying" and, in a podcast interview, revealing that she didn't initially want to go but that her parents "really wanted me to go".
Court documents released last week also claimed that Olivia hadn't written her own college applications.
Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli are among more than 30 accused parents, this including actress Felicity Huffman, who allegedly paid a firm up to $6.5m (£4.9m) to cheat on students' college entrance exams or bribe top coaches to offer fake sports scholarships.
The couple is scheduled to appear in federal court in Boston next month.
