Bella and Olivia Jade Giannulli Were Dropped from Their Sorority, But Here’s Why They Can’t Withdraw from USC

Kappa Kappa Gamma isn't playing.

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli's college-aged daughters, Bella and Olivia Jade Giannulli, have been the de facto student faces of the Varsity Blues scandal, and they're currently finding themselves in a real pickle. They've been dropped by their sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and aren't allowed to withdraw from USC despite their parents' legal troubles stemming from the lengths they went to get the sisters into the university.

“Olivia and Bella were both in Kappa Kappa Gamma and the sorority has since kicked them out and is trying to distance themselves from the situation as much as possible,” an anonymous source told Us Weekly.

The same publication noted in April that the sisters — and every other student named in the Varsity Blues scandal —  currently can't register for classes or withdraw altogether.

“USC has placed holds on the accounts of students who may be associated with the alleged admissions scheme,” explains a statement provided to Us Weekly. “This prevents the students 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. Among many factors investigators could consider in reviewing each case are any developments in the criminal cases, including plea deals by parents. Following these case-by-case reviews, we will take the proper action related to each student’s status, up to revoking admission or expulsion.”

Olivia Jade moved out of her parents' house in May and her parents have struggled at home by "blaming each other and disagreeing on things," a source told E!.

"They are starting to turn on each other and there is incredible stress and tension," the source said. "There have been dark and tense moments. But they know that their backs are up against the wall and they are hoping to get through this together."

Earlier this week, the sisters ended their recent social media shyness and both wished their mom happy birthday via their Instagram accounts as Loughlin and Giannulli prepare to present a united front in court next month. While the couple are confident they'll be exonerated, some lawyers think otherwise.
