Lori Loughlin's YouTuber daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli may have broken her Instagram silence with an "I love you so much" birthday tribute for her mother. But don't let the gushy tone deceive you. Entertainment Tonight is reporting that their relationship is far from completely fixed.
"Therapy has helped to bring the family together during some really rough times," its source started. "Olivia and her mother have been communicating and things have improved." (At one point, Olivia and her mother were not talking at all.)
"Lori has apologized many times to her girls and has told them that she only wants the best for them," the source continued. "Olivia has forgiven her, but she still carries some resentment because she realizes that this scandal has marked her and will never entirely go away."
Entertainment Tonight's source added that Olivia is so done with the University of Southern California, the college her parents allegedly paid $500,000 to get her and her sister Bella into by making it appear that they were rowing team recruits.
"Olivia has no plans to return to USC," the source said. "She never wanted to attend USC to begin with, and now she is sure that USC isn't the place for her. Right now her goal is to rebuild her brand and her business." Olivia has looked to her fashion designer dad Mossimo Giannulli for business advice. "He has been encouraging Olivia to create a new brand, either makeup or beauty related," the source said.
