YouTuber Olivia Jade caught up in massive Federal Bureau of Investigation college fraud scandal

Hallmark Star Lori Loughlin Charged In Alleged College Admissions Scheme

Hallmark Star Lori Loughlin Charged In Alleged College Admissions Scheme

But one of the daughters, Olivia Giannulli, who goes by the name Olivia Jade and is now in her first year at USC, apparently didn't always want to go to college.

"Beginning in or about 2011, and continuing through the present, the defendants-principally individuals whose high-school aged children were applying to college-conspired with others to use bribery and other forms of fraud to facilitate their children's admission to colleges and universities in the District of MA and elsewhere, including Yale University, Stanford University, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California, and the University of California-Los Angeles, among others", an affidavit in support of the criminal complaint alleged.

DeVos said in a Fox News interview that although the Justice Department is leading the case, her department is reviewing whether it should play a role. Several of the coaches accused of accepting bribes have been fired, placed on leave or have resigned.

Loughlin has reportedly been arrested for her alleged involvement in a scam that helped her daughters get into USC.

Legal experts said that was a hard argument to make since the two students, Erica Olsen and Kalea Woods, got into the elite college.

The actress posted a $1 million bond after her appearance Wednesday in federal court. A spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation confirmed to ET that there is an arrest warrant out for Loughlin, who was out of town and not at her house when authorities showed up. According to the media outlet, another person wrote, "It says in the article most kids were not aware that their admission was contingent on bribes".

IMG Academy in Bradenton said late Tuesday that 36-year-old Mark Riddell has been suspended indefinitely. Andrew Lelling, the USA attorney for MA stated that the people arrested include nine coaches, two examination administrators, one exam proctor, one college administrator and 33 parents.

The golfer has not been charged with a crime or implicated in the bribery scandal. The scandal is being called the largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted.

Authorities who accused dozens of super-wealthy parents of paying bribes to get their kids into elite USA colleges say the investigation isn't over.

She's among 40 actresses and CEOs charged, including "Desperate Housewives" alum Felicity Huffman.

She appeared Tuesday in federal court in Los Angeles, where a judge set her bond at $250,000 and federal agents took her passport.

It was unclear when the "Full House" star Loughlin would turn herself in. Loughlin shares two children with Target fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli (yes, that Mossimo) who has an estimated worth of $80 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

The next court date for both Huffman and Giannulli is in Boston on March 29 at 2:30 p.m. local time.
