Lori Laughlin's youngest daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, was allegedly aware her parents engaged in questionable activity to get her into USC, according to a new report about the college admissions scandal.
“Olivia fully knew what her parents did to get her into USC, but didn’t think there was anything wrong with it,” a source who remained nameless tattled to Us Weekly. “She didn’t get into any other California schools.”
Unlike fellow actress Felicity Huffman, who cut a plea deal, Loughlin and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, have pleaded not guilty to money laundering. "[Lori and Mossimo] claim they were under the impression they might be breaking rules, but not laws," another insider told Entertainment Tonight. "They feel they were manipulated by those involved and are planning that as part of their defense."
No charges have been brought against Olivia Jade directly, but Vanity Fair suggests that the fallen beauty blogger appears in at least a few of the charging documents against her parents, including in an assertion that Loughlin included Olivia Jade in at least one email about soliciting help for her admission application.
Will she be further entangled in this legal debacle? Only time will tell.
