Lori Loughlin's Daughters Reportedly Not Returning to College
The school involved in the alleged college admissions scandal may soon have two fewer students, reports say, because the girls' family is worried they'll be "viciously bullied."
Lori Loughlin’s daughters, Isabella and Olivia, are reportedly not returning to the University of Southern California, reports say, because their family fears the girls will be "viciously bullied" if they return.
People reports that Olivia Jade has no plans to go back to school, with a source telling the magazine that "she can’t handle anything right now.
TMZ reports that Olivia is said to be "a mess, despondent and feeling like it's the end of the world" and that the family worries she and her sister will be bullied.
CNBC reported Friday evening that a school spokesperson said in a statement that both girls are still officially enrolled.
Olivia, a popular YouTube vlogger with 2 million followers, has seen her budding career implode overnight. Her make up kit has been pulled from store shelves by Sephora, and her clothing collection for the fashion label Princess Polly has also been scrapped.
Loughlin has reportedly been booted from “Fuller House” as well. Deadline quote sources close to the production as saying, "She's toast. It's over."
The actress, who plays Aunt Becky, reportedly "will not be invited back" for the show's final season on Netflix.
The news comes a day after Loughlin was canned by Hallmark, where she was known as the “Queen of Christmas,” having appeared in 18 holiday movies on the channel.
The other actress caught up in the scandal, Felicity Huffman, is getting a message of support from her “Desperate Housewives” costar Joely Fisher.
"Truth is I would do just about anything for our children (short of federal crime),” she wrote on Instagram. “I understand wanting only good for your offspring and I am conflicted."
More is being learned about how the FBI uncovered the largest college admissions scandal in U.S. history. It was information they reportedly got from a crooked financier identified as Morrie Tobin.
Tobin lives in California and was busted for financial fraud. In a bid for leniency, he tipped off the FBI that the Yale women's head soccer coach had offered his daughter a place at the Ivy League school in exchange for a $450,000 bribe, according to the Wall Street Journal. That apparently opened the door to the entire federal investigation. Tobin was not charged in connection with the college admissions scandal.
