Olivia Jade Feels Parents Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli Have ‘Ruined Everything’ for Her Amid College Scandal


Olivia Jade Giannulli feels “hurt, devastated and resentful” that her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, were allegedly involved in a nationwide college admissions scam, a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.

“[Olivia] was passionate about her career, and now everything she built has imploded before her eyes,” the insider reveals in the new issue of Us. “She feels they ruined everything.”

A second source previously told Us that Olivia, 19, and sister Bella, 20, “were so close” to their mom prior to the scandal, but the trio’s relationship is now strained. The insider revealed, “[Olivia] is not talking to her parents right now. [She] feels she is the victim.” The beauty guru lost brand deals with TRESemmé and Sephora as a result of her parents’ alleged actions.

The source continued, “Olivia blames her mom and dad for this scandal and for the downfall of her career.”

Loughlin, 54, and Mossimo, 55, were arrested in March after they allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.” They were each released on a $1 million bond.

While Olivia is technically still enrolled in the University of Southern California, a separate source told Us she “has withdrawn physically” due to fear of bullying.

The Fuller House star and the fashion designer appeared in federal court in Boston on Wednesday, April 3. Felicity Huffman, another celebrity who was arrested for her alleged involvement in the scheme, also went before a judge on Wednesday.
