Disgraced social media influencer Olivia Jade, 19, was spotted partying with friends, despite the fact that news broke that her mother Lori Loughlin is facing between 20 and 40 years behind bars for allegedly paying $500K in bribes to get her and sister Bella into University of Southern Cal.
Unlike Felicity Huffman, who is also charged in the scandal, Lori has refused to cop a plea in the case. About 50 people have been charged in the fraud in all.
Olivia, who unlike Bella has not been spotted with Lori or her father Mossimo Giannulli (who is also facing decades behind bars) since the scandal broke, was spotted in L.A. “drinking, laughing” and staying out late, per reports.
Meanwhile, it seems that reality is coming crashing down on the 54-year-old Lori, who, according to reports, remained blissfully in denial about the severity of the charges until very recently .
“She has been in complete denial and thought maybe she could skate by,” a source told E! News. “She refused to accept any jail time and thought the DA was bluffing. She was adamant she wouldn't do any jail time.”
“Lori is finally realizing just how serious this is,” the source continued. “She is seeing the light that she will do jail time and is freaking out.”
