Lori Loughlin is in the middle of a legal battle after allegedly bribing a college admissions office to get her 20-year-old daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, into the University of Southern California. Now, ahead of the actress’s next court appearance, a redacted doctored resume believed to be Olivia’s, including in her college application, has come to light, E! News reports.
On the resume, which looks to have been prepared by the USC Athletic Department as part of “a presentation of the Giannullis’ youngest daughter to the athletics subcommittee,” the daughter is noted as a coxswain for MAC rowing.
The athletic resume also includes her alleged accomplishments in rowing, which included winning gold in 2014 and 2016 at the San Diego Row Crew Classic and silver in the same competition in 2015. Allegedly, she also won silver in 2015 and bronze in 2016 at the Southwest Regional Junior Championships.
Olivia Jade’s Allegedly Doctored College Resume Made Public
“Her sister is currently on our roster and fills the position of our #4 boat,” the resume states, seemingly referencing her older sister, Isabella Giannulli, who is one year older. “Division 1 rowing programs use scholarships for the oarsmen but rarely with scholarship a coxswain. Although [blank] is non-scholarship she is highly talented and has been successful in both men’s and women’s boats.”
Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly paid $500,000 in bribes to get their two daughters into USC as part of the school’s crew team, despite neither child participating in crew prior to college.
Both parents have since pleaded not guilty to the charges against them. Their daughters haven’t been charged with any crime.
After the scandal broke, Olivia Jade took about a year off from filming videos for her popular YouTube channel. However, she has since returned to the platform in December 2019.
In a video titled “Hi again,” she told her fans, “Obviously, I’ve been gone for a really long time and, as much as I wish I could talk about all of this, it’s really hard for me to say this, just because I know that it’s something that needs to be addressed…it’s just, unfortunately, which is also why I didn’t know exactly when I should come back to YouTube, but the reason for that is just ’cause I’m legally not allowed to speak on anything going on right now.”
As CNN reports, Loughlin and Giannulli’s defense attorneys are claiming that the couple’s donations to USC are legitimate as universities “regularly solicit donations from the families of prospective students” and those donations often “impact the students’ chances of admission.”
Loughlin and Giannulli have yet to respond to the reveal of one of their daughter’s alleged athletic resumes.
