It’s all going down in Hollywood.
After news broke this morning that Full House actress Lori Loughlin allegedly paid for her daughter, Olivia Jade, to get into the the University of Southern California as a rowing recruit, the internet has brought up the 19-year-old’s comments about uni in the past.
It was just back in August when Olivia announced her plans to attend college to her nearly 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.”
“But I’m gonna go in and talk to my deans and everyone, and hope that I can try and balance it all. But I do want the experience of like game days, partying…I don’t really care about school, as you guys all know.”
YouTube will always be my #1 passion. I promise I’d way rather be filming 24/7 than sitting in 6 hours of classes straight but an education is also super important to me so thank u for ur patience and letting me figure out time management . Ily bbs

Days later, she posted an apology after she was slammed in the comments section of her video. However, just last month, she took to Twitter to claim that her online presence will always be her number one passion.
“YouTube will always be my #1 passion. I promise I’d way rather be filming 24/7 than sitting in 6 hours of classes straight but an education is also super important to me so thank u for ur patience and letting me figure out time management,” she said.
Now, however, her fans and followers seem to have a better understanding of the influencer’s nonchalant outlook on receiving an elite education after it was revealed that her mum, Lori Loughlin, and her dad, designer Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly paid for their daughters to be admitted into USC.
Lori allegedly ‘agreed to pay bribes totalling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters’ — Isabella Rose Giannulli and Olivia Jade Giannulli — “designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC,” the documents stated.
Isabella, 20, and Olivia, 19, are often with Loughlin on the red carpet — including just last month — and have found degrees of social media stardom. Olivia has over a million Instagram followers, thanks to her glamour shots giving followers a look into the life of a celeb kid.
A rep for Loughlin told Yahoo Entertainment US she didn’t immediately have a comment
