Olivia Jade’s college dorm room littered with Amazon products emerges

Photographs of alleged admissions cheat Olivia Jade Giannulli’s college dorm room kitted out in Amazon products following a lucrative partnership with the tech giant have emerged.

The 19-year-old, whose parents Lori Loughlin, 54, and Mossimo Giannulli, 55, were accused by the FBI of illegally cheating to get her an acceptance letter from the University of Southern California, is pictured sprawled in the room seemingly without a care in the world. 

Surrounded by electronics and luxury home furnishings, her room appears a far-cry from that of most students, who lack the same influencer partnerships she boasted while studying. 

The series of photographs, taken in an Amazon sponsored shoot with Teen Vogue, advertised its Off To College range, aimed to sell products to students and followers of the star.

Featured in the school are dozens of makeup brushes, mirrors, an Amazon Alexa electronic device, lights store, all seemingly available on Amazon. 

Despite multiple lucrative sponsorship deals, many companies have dropped her in the wake of the scandal.  

Sephora and TRESemmé both cut ties, while she has also reportedly put the brakes on her college career.

Overnight she has gone from a college student making upwards of seven figures a year to an unemployed drop out.

Loughlin and Giannulli ‘agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team – despite the fact that they did not participate in crew – thereby facilitating their admission to USC,’ according to documents. 

The couple emailed Rick Singer in 2016 about their daughters’ college prospects, stating that they wanted to do the necessary work to see that the girls got into USC as opposed to ASU.

Emails obtained by investigators revealed that it was soon decided that bribes would be paid to have the girls recruited as crew coxswains.

A short time after that, photos were taken of older daughter Isabella on an ergometer. 

Dr. Donna Heinel, the senior associate athletic director at USC, presented Isabella as a potential athletic recruit a month later and she was approved for conditional admission.

It was then asked that a check be sent to Heinle for $50,000 from Giannulli, who a short time later asked if he could mention the story to the athletic director at USC when the two men were at Augusta, likely playing at the famed golf club.

Singer stated that this was not a good idea because when he discussed the possibility of Isabella’s admission with him a year ago he thought the family ‘would be good for a million plus.’

Isabella received her admission letter the following March, which was followed by another note requesting a donation of $200,000 to Key Worldwide Foundation. 

After the amount was wired to the organization, a note was returned that stated no good or services had been exchanged for the money, which according to the documents is false.

This same exact process was then repeated with the young daughter, Olivia, it is claimed.

Problems arose however when Olivia’s guidance counselor became curious as to how she managed to receive admission based on her involvement in crew since she did not row.

At the same time, Loughlin complained that her daughter was having difficulty filling out her other college applications, prompting Singer to ask an employee to take care of that task. 

This was done so as not to draw attention to the fact that it was already confirmed that she had received conditional admission to the school. 

Then, at some point, there was a very heated and public altercation between Giannulli and the counselor, which elicited an email from Dr Heinel asking that this not happen in the future so as to avoid detection.

This all began to fall apart in October 2018 when the IRS audited Key Worldwide and began to look into donations made by parents whose children were then admitted to USC. 

The two were told by Singer to say they had given the money to help ‘underserved kids.’
