- Lori Loughlin’s daughters Olivia Jade and Bella are reportedly not allowed to leave USC amid the college bribery scandal their parents and Felicity Huffman allegedly participated in.
- The school released a statement saying that the students involved are under review and can’t withdraw.
If you found out your parents had (allegedly) conspired in a bribery scheme to get you into one of the most elite colleges in the country, you’d probably want to leave that college ASAP due to sheer embarrassment. But Olivia Jade and her sister, Bella, are not so lucky, because USC is making them stay there, pending review.
The school released a statement about it yesterday, titled “USC Information on College Admissions Issue,” which, LOL. Sure, Jan.
“USC has placed holds on the accounts of students who may be associated with the alleged admissions scheme,” it reads. “This prevents the students from registering for classes (until they have agreed to participate in the review of their case), withdrawing from the university, or acquiring transcripts while their cases are under review.”
“Among many factors investigators could consider in reviewing each case are any developments in the criminal cases, including plea deals by parents. Following these case-by-case reviews, we will take the proper action related to each student’s status, up to revoking admission or expulsion.”
According to earlier reports, the school was also considering revoking degrees of alumni who were thought to have been involved in this type of scam. As of March 22, the school ID’d eight alumni who they think got in through similar schemes.
It’s unclear whether Olivia Jade and Bella are actually going to class or not (the lack of sneaky Twitter pics from other USC students makes us think not), but apparently Olivia in particular has been hard-core avoiding her parents since the news broke. But hey, at least her beauty brand trademark application finally went through, sans spelling errors, so there’s something???
