Now we know what that IKEA trip was for!
Olivia Jade is making her best efforts to move past the drama from Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulliâ€™s alleged involvement in the nationwide college bribery scandal — by moving into her own place!
Between trying to withdraw from USC and facing the very likely possibility that her mom and dad could spend years in prison, times have been hard for the 19-year-old YouTuber. Recently, Liv was spending time with her parents as they prepared to defend themselves in federal court, making it seem likeÂ she was focused on providing them with a Full House of love and support.
But now, gurl is trading that Full House for an empty house where she can â€œstart a new chapterâ€� of her life!
An Us Weekly source dished:
â€œOlivia has been leaning on friends and wants a new place to start a new chapter. Olivia is very much in the headspace [that] she wants to move forward from the scandal. Sheâ€™s focusing on whatâ€™s next and not looking back.â€�
Sorry, mom and dad! A influencerâ€™s gotta influence — and she canâ€™t influence with all that negative energy around her!
While the insider noted that Olivia lived in a dorm at USC at the time the scandal broke, she did not stay on campus â€œtoo oftenâ€� and was mostly â€œliving with friendsâ€� during the school year.Â
After her parents were arrested and charged for allegedly paying $500,000 in exchange to secure her and sister Isabella Roseâ€™s admissions into USC, the starlet tried her best to stay out of the spotlight. She was initially shacking up in boyfriend Jackson Guthyâ€™s Malibu home before returning back to her parents’ place, where she was said to be supporting her mom as the actress prepared her defense for the trial.
But clearly, Liv is not sticking around to see how it all plays out. The source added:
â€œOlivia is moving out fully on her own. [She] wants a new place for a fresh start.â€�
Sheâ€™s already getting started on it, too!Â
On Thursday, moving trucks were seen outside of Loughlin and Giannulliâ€™s mansion in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles. A day later, as we reported, Olivia was spotted shopping at an IKEA furniture store in Burbank, California… with a mystery man in tow.
Yup, that fresh start could mean a fresh new man in her life.Â But it probably just means that Liv is ready to focus on rebuilding her social media empire!
Earlier this month, sources noted that the makeup maven has been ready to â€œrebuild her businessâ€� ever since the scandal caused her to lose several sponsorships and endorsement deals — andÂ rebuilding one’s business is much harder to do when one’s parents are in the kitchenÂ talking defense strategy.
Clearly, Olivia is ready to leave the nest and theÂ future has never been brighter for her.Â The future for her parents, on the other hand, will probably involve orange jump suits.
