Former Full House star Lori Loughin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have been charged with agreeing to pay bribes to help their two daughters gain admission into the University of Southern California (USC). The couple were a part of a huge indictment accusing celebrities of engaging in a college exam cheating plot.

The couple's daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli, 19, is a prominent social media influencer with nearly two million YouTube subscribers. She used her status as a student at USC to advance her online career.

  1. Olivia Jade participated in a number of paid posts including Amazon's membership program for college students

    She shared the benefits of using Prime Student. "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," she wrote on Instagram.

  2. While Olivia is currently a freshman at USC, going to college wasn't always her priority

    Last August, she posted a video on YouTube addressing her fears about coming to college. "I don’t know how much of school I’m gonna attend... I do want the experience of like game days, partying… I don’t really care about school, as you guys all know," she explained.

    After receiving backlash for the post, she apologized for the video. The teen said, "A lot of people like to attack me for the way I've grown up because it's really different from a lot of people, and so anything I say that's remotely ignorant or bratty or something that I genuinely don't mean, it gets so much backlash."

  3. Last month she took to Twitter explaining where school stood on her list of priorities
  4. The recent indictment ignited a conversation about race, income and the role it has on college admissions
  5. USC released a statement in the wake of the indictment

    The college said it is "conducting an international investigation and will take employment actions as appropriate."

    Dozens of parents were charged in an alleged conspiracy to get their children enrolled in top colleges, CNN reports.

    Olivia Jade's father appeared in federal court and was issued $1 million bond. He was also ordered to surrender his passport and limit his travel to the United States only. Giannulli, along with his wife, Loughlin, has been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, the news network alleges.
