The college bribery scandal has seen many parents arrested for allegedly attempting to bribe their children's way into college including actress Lori Loughlin. Loughlin and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli are accused of paying more than $500,00 to secure admission to the University of Southern California for their two daughters, Isabella, and Olivia Jade. Although their college status is still under review it seems that Olivia Jade is eager to head back to class!
Many sources have said that Olivia Jade never even wanted to go to college and simply wanted to focus on her burgeoning career as an influencer and entrepreneur, alleging that it was her parent's idea for her to pursue higher education. Now a source is telling US Weekly that she wants to continue her studies at the school her parents are accused of bribing to guarantee her admission. “Olivia Jade wants to go back to USC,” a source told Us. “She didn’t get officially kicked out and she is begging the school to let her back in.” In a statement, USC said any student connected with the college bribery scandal would have their status placed under review.
“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.”
Another source thinks that this may all be a calculated move by Olivia Jade to make it appear she's interested in returning to college since the likelihood of it actually happening is pretty slim. “She knows they won’t let her in, so she’s hoping this info gets out,” the insider explained to Us. “She wants to come out looking like she’s changed, learned life lessons and is growing as a person, so she for sure wants people to think she is interested in her education.”
While USC has stated there are many factors to consider when looking at each student's account, including “plea deals by parents,” there has been no mention of Olivia Jade or her sister's readmission to the college. Both Loughlin and Giannulli have pleaded not guilty to the charges they are facing, a contrast to fellow actress Felicity Huffman who pleaded guilty to the fraud conspiracy charge brought against her.
