As the college bribery scandal continues to get messier, there is more news about actress Lori Loughlin’s involvement— and it ain’t good.
According to court documents, Loughlin’s daughter and YouTube sensation Olivia Jade did not fill out her own application for admission into the University of Southern California.
Her reason? She was confused.
“On or about December 12, 2017, Laughlin e-mailed (Rick Singer), copying Giannulli and their younger daughter, to request guidance on how to complete the formal USC application in the wake of her daughter’s provisional acceptance as a recruited athlete,” the affidavit states in regards to Loughlin and husband J. Mossimo Giannulli’s efforts to have her recruited as a student-athlete.
Reminder – Olivia Jade was no athlete.
“Loughlin wrote, ‘[Our younger daughter] has not submitted all her colleges [sic] apps and is confused on how to do so,” the affidavit continues. “I want to make sure she gets those in. Can you tell us how to proceed?’”
Proceed they did, as the affidavit states that Singer, the man who has already pleaded guilty to multiple charges in the college admission cheating scandal, instructed one of his employees ‘to submit the applications on behalf of the Giannulli’s younger daughter.’
Amid the news of the college admissions scandal, Olivia also lost her ongoing paid partnership with Sephora. “After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately,” Sephora said in a statement to NBC News.
Her mother has also lost her partnership with the Hallmark channel.
