Olivia Jade reportedly has no plans to go back to the University of Southern California (USC) following her parents’ alleged involvement in the college admissions scandal, Operation Varsity Blues.

“Olivia [Jade] has no plans to return to USC. She never wanted to attend USC to begin with, and now she is sure that USC isn’t the place for her,” a source close to the 19-year-old YouTube star shared with Entertainment Tonight in a piece published Thursday.

As previously reported, Jade’s parents, Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, were arrested in March and accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get her and her sister, Isabella Giannulli, into USC by pretending their daughters were competitive rowing recruits.

The “Full House” actress and husband have since pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering in the case.
