Loughlin has also served as a recurring guest star on the Netflix reboot of the show that launched her to fame. They're accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters into USC.

The two are said to be afraid of being bullied by other students after their parents, Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, were indicted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for allegedly paying half a million dollars to ensure their daughters were accepted into the elite university. On the trivia show, she was pitted against singer Rydel Lynch and Rachel, who explained that even though she earned a higher score at the end of the show, the production team instructed everyone to re-film everything as if Olivia actually won.

The case is one among many in a sweeping criminal probe into alleged bribery and backroom dealing to rig admissions into USC, Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, and other top-flight schools.

Lori Loughlin's daughters, Isabella and Olivia Jade Giannulli, have made a decision to drop out of University of Southern California, TMZ is reporting.

Rumors swirled that Olivia Jade dropped out of USC amid the controversy, though the school confirmed to Newsweek she was still enrolled.

A source previously told ET that, while Olivia, a 19-year-old vlogger, "is all about fashion and her YouTube channel", it may be a bit harder for 20-year-old Bella to leave college.


The streaming service and Warner Brother Television has not commented on the news that Aunt Becky will not return to the fifth and final season of Fuller House.

As the scandal has unfolded, Olivia has lost some of the lucrative brand-sponsorship deals she has landed over the years. The entertainment site notes Jade "is a mess, despondent and feeling like it's the end of the world".

Olivia Jade appeared on Tap That Awesome App, a now-obsolete show from Awesomeness TV that aired on Verizon mobile devices, back in 2016.

"The producers have told the kids - and their parents - that if they have any questions or need anything from them at all, they will be available to help talk it through", says the insider. For both of them to attend the school legally, it would have cost about $448,000.

"Mostly my parents wanted me to go because both of them didn't go to college", Olivia Jade said.

In a statement, USC Interim President Wanda M. Austin details the school's plan to carry out "a case-by-case review of current students and graduates who may be connected to the alleged scheme".
