Olivia Jade Giannulli in September last year posted sponsored content on Instagram for Amazon Prime, featuring a photo of her in her new dorm room at the University of Southern California with the caption: “Officially a college student! It’s been a few weeks since I moved into my dorm and I absolutely love it. I got everything I needed from Amazon with @primestudent and had it all shipped to me in just two-days.”
Loughlin was among dozens of people busted Tuesday for allegedly paying bribes to get their kids into top colleges.
Court documents allege she and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”
Before Olivia Jade went off to college in 2018, she generated controversy by posting to her popular YouTube channel that she didn’t “really care about school” but wanted the “experience” of “partying.”
“I don’t know how much of school I’m gonna attend,” she told her nearly 2 million subscribers, according to Yahoo News.
“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.”
Her followers reacted by calling her “spoiled” and “ignorant” — and she posted an apology video a few days later.
Olivia Jade was later featured in a Vogue Teen article about the decor in her college digs.
“I ended up ordering everything from Amazon and made sure it all went with her décor but wasn’t too matchy matchy,” she told the mag.
“I found pretty much everything for my dorm on Amazon’s college store — it was easy to find it all in one place and there were so many options to choose from. I was also able to use my Prime Student membership and received all the items in two-days with free shipping. So the best part was that it was already waiting at my dorm for me when I got there.”
