Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Olivia Jade Reveals Her Father ‘Faked His Way’ Through College in Recent Interview


As the repercussions of the college admissions scandal continue to play out for actress Lori Loughlin, the comments her daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli made before the scandal broke are now getting some extra attention.

In a recent interview with the Zach Sang Show, Olivia Jade talked about her father Mossimo Giannulli and his experience in college way back when.

“He didn’t come from a lot, so it’s cool to see that he built it all himself,” she says. “He has a really crazy story, in college he, like, built his whole entire brand and he wasn’t actually, like, I don’t know if I’m supposed to say this, sorry dad, ever enrolled in college. But he, like, faked his way through it and then he started his whole business with tuition money that his parents thought was going to college. That’s, like, such a different time. I don’t know if I was supposed to say that, but it’s OK. It’s a cool story.”

Olivia’s parents were recently released on a one-million-dollar bond after being accused of paying $500,000 to get their children into the University of Southern California.

“Mostly my parents wanted me to go because both of them didn’t go to college,” Jade also says in the interview. “I’m so happy they made me go. That sounds so terrible. They didn’t make me.”

Olivia has also lost her ongoing partnership with Sephora amid the scandal.

“After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately,” Sephora said in a statement to NBC News.
