It de­pends on who you ask. Ac­cord­ing to some peo­ple in Olivia Jade’s in­ner cir­cle, the vlog­ger — who had to pub­licly apol­o­gize af­ter brag­ging on her YouTube chan­nel that she hated school and was only at USC for the boys and the par­ties — knew her par­ents had pulled strings but wasn’t aware they’d gone to il­le­gal lengths. “Her par­ents talked freely around her,” says a source. “She knew they’d called in some fa­vors, but she thought it was a com­mon thing for peo­ple with money to do.” Lori and Mos­simo al­legedly paid $500,000 to pass off Olivia (and her sis­ter Is­abella) off as re­cruits for the USC crew team, even though nei­ther had par­tic­i­pated in the sport. But other friends claim Olivia was clue­less. “They in­sist she knew noth­ing about what was go­ing on,” says the source, “and say she’s the in­no­cent vic­tim in all of this.” Ei­ther way, she’s now in a pow­er­ful po­si­tion, and if she wants to re­pair her ru­ined rep, she’ll have her day in court. “Olivia could sing like a ca­nary on the stand,” says the in­sider. “She wants to clear her name, even if it’s at the ex­pense of her par­ents’ free­dom.”
