Olivia Jade is getting support from boyfriend Jackson Guthy now that her mom Lori Loughlin has started her two-month prison sentence.
Olivia Jade Giannulli, 21, is “staying strong” for her mother Lori Loughlin, 56, who just went to prison for paying $500K in bribes to get her daughters into USC. Olivia’s father Mossimo Giannulli, 57, was also sentenced to prison time for his part in the college admissions scandal, and has been ordered to surrender by Nov. 19. Having both of her parents behind bars for the holidays will be “extremely difficult” for the influencer, but multiple sources tell HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that she has a great support system — including her boyfriend Jackson Guthy, 24.
“She’s been spending as much time as she can with her family and has just doing everything she can to be there for her parents while they prepared for this. Her boyfriend [Jackson Guthy] has really been there for her too, he’s been a rock for her and she’s so grateful she will have him to lean on while her parents are away,” our source says.
And according to a second source close Olivia, she’s “proud” of how well her mom is doing. “Olivia is so proud of how bravely her mom is handling her sentence,” the insider tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “She never imagined their family would be in this type of a situation or that something like this could ever happen, but Olivia knows that what her parents did was wrong.
“Of course, Olivia is going to miss her mom so much while she’s away and it’s going to be really difficult knowing they’ll be in prison during the holidays. Olivia knows she has a huge support system around her and she’s always been strong and independent. She will get through this time with her family no matter what and is staying positive by focusing on the next chapter when this is behind them,” the insider says.
“Olivia has been involved with her parents situation for so long,” explains our source. “and she is both relieved and shocked that her mom is finally in prison. Olivia is being strong for her parents and her mom and she has had plenty of tears but she is happy that she will have the chance to start fresh in 2021 with her goals and dreams and her parents will leave all the drama to this year. It has been trying but Olivia has accepted it and is doing the absolute best she can for all involved.”
