Actress Lori Loughlin’s 2017 humble-brag about spending a lot of money on her daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli’s education has taken on an ironic new dimension — now that the “Fuller House” actress was busted for shelling out $500,000 in bribes to get her dimwit daughters into University of Southern California.
“If you said ‘England is my city,’ I would have said ‘Why did I pay all this money for your education?’” Loughlin told Olivia Jade during a YouTube clip in which the daughter tried to teach her slang.
“We’re just gonna leave it at that,” Olivia Jade then quips to the camera.
Loughlin was busted last week in a bombshell college-admission cheating ring that ensnared her Target T-shirt tycoon hubby Mossimo Giannulli, fellow actress Felicity Huffman, a cadre of other wealthy parents and a handful of corrupt coaches from the likes of USC, Yale and Georgetown.
Loughlin allegedly paid scam ringleader Rick Singer half a million dollars to get Olivia Jade, 19, and her sister Isabella Rose, 20, admitted to USC under the guise they were recruited to the crew team — even though neither of the waif-like girls is an actual rower.
Singer allegedly had the girls pose for photos and then doctored the images to make them appear to be rowing.
The girls both dropped out of USC after the scandal broke — because they claimed they were afraid of being bullied.
Olivia Jade is perhaps best known as a social media star, who has amassed 1.4 million followers on Instagram and almost 2 million on YouTube by doing makeup tutorials, creating inane videos about what she got for Christmas, and generally just being the child of famous people.
Many of the videos netted Jade lucrative endorsements from fashion, make-up and hair-care brands — but sponsors have been shedding the teen since the scandal broke.
Make-up company Sephora dropped her on Thursday and hair-care company TRESemme followed suit Friday.
Loughlin too has been losing gigs since her arrest Wednesday — Netflix announced it was booting her from “Fuller House,” and she has also lost her longtime position as the face of the Hallmark Channel.
