Another not-so flattering report on what Lori Loughlin and her daughter Olivia Jade did to get Olivia into the University of Southern California has emerged in People. Apparently, Olivia didn’t even fill out her own application to the school, according to court documents People reviewed. Authorities detailed in a 200+ page affidavit that Loughlin included her daughter on an email between her and William Singer, the alleged mastermind of the college admissions scandal. Singer pleaded guilty last Tuesday to multiple federal criminal charges, including racketeering conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy.
The affidavit stated that “on or about December 12, 2017, Laughlin e-mailed [Singer], copying Gianulli and their younger daughter, to request guidance on how to complete the formal USC application in the wake of her daughter’s provisional acceptance as a recruited athlete.” (Loughlin and her husband were charged in the scandal for allegedly paying $500,000 to make it appear that both their daughters had been rowers to guarantee their admission to USC.)
“Loughlin wrote, ‘[Our younger daughter] has not submitted all her colleges [sic] apps and is confused on how to do so. I want to make sure she gets those in. Can you tell us how to proceed?’ [Singer] responded by directing an employee to submit the applications on behalf of the Giannulli’s younger daughter,” the affidavit stated.
People added that the affidavit also includes Singer and Loughlin’s alleged exchange following Olivia Jade’s November 2017 acceptance to USC. Regarding the USC admission, Loughlin reportedly wrote to Singer, “This is wonderful news.” He replied, “Please continue to keep hush hush till March.” And Loughlin replied back, “Yes, of course.”
Olivia Jade is now reported to be withdrawing from the university in the wake of the scandal.
