(Newser) – Already queasy over the college admission scandal? You might want a paper bag. Lori Loughlin's daughter not only said last year she was at the University of Southern California just to party—she joked in 2018 that she was "never" at high school, People reports. "I'm, like, excited to go… do the school prank," Olivia Jade Giannulli says in the video posted on her YouTube channel. "But I'm also literally never at school that I think my class doesn’t even—and maybe they forget I go there!" She then laughs and says, "I'm just kidding!"

Olivia Jade's parents allegedly paid $500,000 for the so-called "social influencer" to get into USC, a subject she inadvertently touched on during a March 8 radio interview: "Mostly my parents really wanted me to go because both of them didn’t go to college. I'm so happy they made me go—that sounds so terrible," said the 19-year-old, per Vox. "They didn't make me! ... I do like it. It's also cool to create content from a whole different side of things, like in school." (Read more college admissions bribery scandal stories.)
