Lori Loughlin 'Never Pushed' Her Daughters Bella Giannulli and Olivia Jade

While Giannulli and her sister are in no way responsible for their parents' mistakes (according to reports, the students involved were allegedly unaware at the time, and are not being prosecuted) it still makes the case more puzzling that Loughlin would allegedly commit fraud so her daughter could attend college - when she doesn't seem that interested in going to school. The young women haven't finished their degrees at the University of Southern California, but they already have found success in Hollywood.

Olivia Jade Giannulli, Lori Loughlin and Isabella Rose Giannulli attend The Women's Cancer Research Fund's An Unforgettable Evening Benefit Gala at the Beverly Wilshire on February 28, 2019 in Beverly Hills.

In addition to sharing paid advertisements for Sephora with her 1.4 million Instagram followers and almost 2 million YouTube subscribers, 19-year-old Giannulli also launched her Olivia Jade x Sephora Bronze & Illuminate Palette in collaboration with the company back in December.

Olivia released an apology video after backlash. "Aaaand you guys haven't cut ties with her yet because??" one consumer asked, while another suggested, "I will not spend another dime at Sephora until they drop this entitled, toxic idiot". She added, "I'm not like that". And it totally came across that I'm ungrateful for college ...


College has become a common theme in Olivia's material.

She didn't label this video as sponsored content, but has posted plenty of "paid partnerships" on Instagram, showing she was directly making money as a college vlogger, including this post about an "invisible aligner" treatment.

Isabella Rose, her older daughter, agreed with her mom's sentiments in the video.

Lori Loughlin, 54, was arrested this morning when she returned to California from Vancouver, where she is filming a TV movie.


Giannulli even admitted in an interview on "The Zach Sang Show" earlier this month that she mainly went to college because her parents wanted her to. A lot of it is unnecessary and I think it's important to just have downtime, free time. "And I just said to her, 'Look, have some back up plan. You can study theater [and] whatever you need to also at school'".

No children of the 33 wealthy parents allegedly involved in the scam were charged with a crime.

It was just back in August when 19-year-old Olivia announced her plans to attend college to her almost 2 million YouTube subscribers, where she was criticised for seeming "spoiled" after saying, "I don't know how much of school I'm gonna attend".

"The prime movers of this fraud" were the parents and other defendants, Lelling said, though he noted some students may face charges down the road.


"It wouldn't come as a complete surprise if the brands now working with Ms. Giannulli took a closer look at the status of their relationship with her and possibly reconsidered next steps for engagement".
