YouTube star Olivia Jade Giannulli is reportedly moving out of her family’s Bel-Air mansion in California to “focus on her own life” amid parents Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli’s alleged involvement in the college admissions scandal.
Loughlin, an actress best known for her role as Aunt Becky on “Full House,” and Giannulli, a fashion designer, are accused of bribing their daughters’ way into the University of Southern California. The couple allegedly paid scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer $500,000 to secure Olivia Jade and sister Isabella as recruits for the school’s rowing team despite neither of them having prior experience in the sport. Singer pleaded guilty to multiple charges in March.
OLIVIA JADE IS REPORTEDLY SPENDING LESS TIME WITH HER BOYFRIEND AMID COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL
Olivia Jade, who is the youngest daughter, removed clothing and personal items from the family’s home this week, a source told E! News.
“Everything that’s going on with her parents is very stressful for her and she needs some space,” an unnamed person told People.
“There is paparazzi at the family house every day,” the insider added. “She doesn’t want to be followed when she leaves her home.”
Olivia Jade, whose beauty and lifestyle YouTube account has nearly 2 million subscribers, wants to distance herself from her parents for both business and mental health reasons, the source said.
“She wants to focus on rebuilding her business and not deal with daily negative attention,” the unnamed person explained. “She doesn’t feel that it’s healthy for her to live with her parents right now.”
