Reports state that Olivia Jade was allegedly partying it up on USC billionaire Rick Caruso’s yacht during spring break while her mother was being indicted. Caruso is on USC’s board of trustees and it has been reported that Olivia Jade is good friends with his daughter Gianna “Gigi” Caruso. The pair were on the yacht with friends while vacationing in the Bahamas. Meanwhile, while Olivia was enjoying the sun, Lori Laughlin was dealing with indictment, arrest, and posting bond. Lori Loughlin is now planning her defense but the days of carefree bliss in the Bahamas may be coming to an end.
After news broke that Lori Loughlin was one of the high-profile people included in a nationwide, federal investigation regarding college-entrance fraud, the fallout has come to her daughter as well.
It is unclear if Olivia Jade Giannulli was aware of her mother’s alleged participation in the scheme. Lori Loughlin is out on $1 million bond and will appear in a Boston court where she will enter a plea on March 29, 2019.

The backlash against Olivia Jade is growing swift and severe. People are calling her out as well as her mother on social media and accusing her of using white privilege to get opportunities that she didn’t work for nor deserves.
On Thursday, Sephora announced they were ending their partnership with the social media influencer and YouTube star over the scandal.
It has been alleged that Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli paid $500,000 for Olivia Jade to become a crew recruit enabling her to attend USC.
In 2018, Olivia Jade was under fire for saying that she didn’t really care about school but was looking forward to “game days and parties.” The statements were made in one of her YouTube videos.
She was not only met with backlash, but people accused her of being “spoiled” and even a “privileged brat.” In the video, Olivia Jade stated she didn’t really care about school.
