A report that Lori Loughlin's daughters, Bella and Olivia Jade Giannulli, were kicked out of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority at University of Southern California in the wake of the Varsity Blues scandal has been debunked by sorority reps.
"The story regarding these two individuals is false," the sorority wrote in a statement sent to Entertainment Tonight. "Bella Giannulli remains an active member of the Delta Tau chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma."
Olivia Jade wasn't kicked out, either, but for a totally different reason, according to the statement: "Olivia Jade did not complete the membership process."
The sisters haven't been allowed to register for classes or withdraw from the university while the case moves its way through the court system.
“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.”
Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, will next appear in court together on August 27, when they're expected to waive their rights to separate attorneys.
