YouTuber David Dobrik Defends Olivia Jade Over College Admissions Scandal
David Dobrik‘s usually goofing off, but he took a break from his class clown persona to wish Olivia Jade, daughter of Lori Loughlin and designer Mossimo Giannulli, well as her mom and dad face prison time for the College Admissions Scandal that had everyone talking earlier this year.
David’s been friends with Olivia, who is also a YouTube star, for some time now and the former USC student was even seen partying at David’s house soon after the scandal broke.
“I hope she’s doing solid,” David told People. “Everybody has screw-ups in their life, but you learn from mistakes and that’s just how things work.”
David and Olivia were last seen together in April and that quote doesn’t necessarily make it sounds like they’ve been keeping in close touch.
Olivia Jade has been M.I.A. from social media and her YouTube channel for over eight months, except for one throwback photo paying tribute to her embroiled mama, Lori Loughlin, the day after her 55th birthday. She also posted-and-deleted a pic of herself flipping the bird to the camera and tagging media sites that had been reporting on her allegedly strained relationship with her mother in the wake of the scandal.
Though the other biggest name in the scandal, Felicity Huffman has served her time in prison and was released after 11 days, Lori is yet to be convicted or sentenced since the Full House actress and Mossimo pleaded not guilty to money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud. More recently, she and her husband were served an additional federal charge for conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery. If found guilty, they could see more than forty years behind bars.
If that’s the case, it’s good to know that Olivia Jade and her sister, Isabella Rose Giannulli, will have their friends supporting them. It’s unclear how much information they had about their parents’ alleged crimes to get them into the University of Southern California and Olivia said she didn’t really even want to go to college, anyways.
