Spilling her secrets! Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli’s younger daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, shared stories about lying to her parents in a YouTube video that resurfaced amid her parents’ alleged involvement in the nationwide college admissions scandal.
The vlogger, 19, recalled sneaking out in high school to visit her boyfriend in the June 2018 clip titled, “sorry mom & dad…” After explaining how she got away with her antics, Olivia admitted, “I just make my parents sound like they don’t keep tabs on me. I promise I’ve been in trouble plenty of times.”
The beauty guru, who confessed to doing “some really shady s–t” when she was younger, added: “I don’t know how I didn’t get caught for it. Lucky I’m alive and breathing. Really their only thing was for me was about safety, like, ‘Don’t Uber by yourself … be classy, you only get one reputation,’ like, that whole sort of thing. Yeah, glad I listened to them. I think I came out decent.”
Olivia noted that while she’s “pretty innocent” on her YouTube channel, which boasts nearly 2 million followers, she never lies to her fans “about being crazy or partying.”
The social media star’s revelation is one of many to reemerge as Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli, 55, headed to federal court on Wednesday, April 3, just weeks after being arrested for allegedly paying $500,000 to secure Olivia and her older sister Bella, 20, admission into the University of Southern California as crew team recruits.
A source exclusively told Us Weekly that Olivia and Bella, who are technically still enrolled at USC but have “withdrawn physically” due to fears of bullying, have distanced themselves from their parents.
While Olivia “feels she is the victim” and is “not talking to her parents,” according to one insider, a second source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that “Lori has felt trapped for the last few weeks, not wanting to leave her house or go out with friends.”
However, the Fuller House star seemed to be in good spirits as she arrived at the John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse in Boston on Wednesday. She smiled and waved at fans as they called out, “We love you” and “Lori, pay for my tuition!”
The 90210 alum and the fashion designer appeared in court alongside Felicity Huffman, who was also arrested in March for allegedly participating in the scandal on behalf of her daughter Sofia, 18, with husband William H. Macy.
