Of course, Lori Loughlin’s daughter, Olivia Jade, is going to drop out. How could anyone with any self-awareness ever show their face on that campus again?
Olivia has decided not to return to the University of Southern California after her parents were indicted in a massive college bribery scam.
The whole thing highlights “those parents,” that only want their kids socializing with the “best” kids. Neither the parents nor the kids wanted the school for educational value; rather it’s used as a social stepping stone.
The 19-year-old YouTube star has “no plans to return to USC” when classes resume on Monday, following her mom’s indictment and arrest for her alleged involvement with the college fraud scandal.
“She can’t handle anything right now. She seems more and more upset every day. She just wants to stay home,” says the source.
Although it is unclear whether or not Olivia Jade was aware of her parents’ involvement in the scandal, her booming Instagram and YouTube blogging business has taken a hit since the news broke. On Thursday, Sephora severed ties with the teen.
“She feels she has worked very hard to get different work deals and everything is just gone. She thought she knew what the future had in store for her, and it all just crumbled,” says the source. “It’s a never-ending nightmare for her. She understands the serious consequences her parents are facing and she is very scared.” [excerpt via People]
It is sad and ironic that in trying to fulfill her parent’s wishes (that she attend college), she is losing the business she had been building for herself. I realize there are a million reasons not to feel bad for her, but It is such a vulnerable age, and I do feel bad for her. She didn’t ask for any of it.
No doubt it will make her stronger, lessons she may have had trouble getting in her insulated environment, so hopefully, that is the plus side. A little reality in an unreal life. I hope she is strong enough.
She sounds more upset about her ‘deals’ than not going to school which she previously admitted was only good for parties. Maybe she should think about the deserving student whose place she took. Zero compassion here for her ‘nightmare’. It’s not too late to grow up!
