Prosecutors Claim Olivia Jade Knew Exactly What Was Going On

While Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli have garnered most of the headlines and shouldered almost all of the blame their daughters' involvement in the college admissions scandal, new court documents state the Olivia Jade knew exactly what was going on with her college applications. It's not surprising to anyone who has followed the saga, since images of Olivia Jade on a rowing machine surfaced during her parents' court appearances.

According to Vulture, court documents from April 2019 show Olivia Jade's email address copied on the correspondence with her parents. In new filings, prosecutors claim that Olivia Jade had multiple discussions with her parents regarding how they would hide the admissions scheme from her high school guidance counselor. The new claims explicitly say that Jade asked Loughlin and Giannulli "how to avoid the possibility that a high school counselor would disrupt their scheme."

"They involved both their daughters in the fraud, directing them to pose in staged photographs for use in fake athletic profiles and instructing one daughter how to conceal the scheme from her high school counselor,” court documents state. "When their daughter [Jade] asked whether she should list USC as her top choice school, Loughlin replied: 'Yes, but it might be a flag for the weasel to meddle.'"

The "weasel" that Loughlin references is believed to be Olivia Jade's guidance counselor. Prosecutors insist that Loughlin urged Olivia Jade not to "say too much" about her applications and that she said the counselor was being a "nosey bastard." The most recet filings also describe a situation in which Giannulli had a confrontation with the counselor in spring 2018.

Olivia Jade hasn't released a statement on the scandal, even though her parents are set to be sentenced on Friday.

"I'm legally not allowed to speak on anything going on right now," she said in a video last December. "I genuinely miss filming and I feel like a huge part of me is not the same, because this is something that I'm really passionate about and something I like to do."
