Olivia Jade’s name is back in the headlines, and not because she figured out an honest way for wealthy kids to get into college.
It’s fairly self-explanatory, but I digress.
The Blast previously informed you that the social media influencer popped back up in everyone’s Internet browsers after the “Gossip Girl” reboot made a joke about her and her family.
In the premiere episode of the revival of the hit 2000s teen drama TV series, a joke including Olivia’s name and the college admissions scandal was made.
About half-way through the inaugural episode, there’s an interaction between characters Monet De Haan (Savannah Lee Smith) and Luna La (Zión Moreno).
Monet says, “You as someone who loses is bad for business,” before Luna replies, “And everything will be fine so long as you win. Olivia Jade gained followers when her mom went to jail.”

The former USC student filmed herself watching this particular scene and issued her own response on TikTok.
When Luna delivers the line, “Olivia Jade gained followers when her mom went to jail,” Olivia shakes her head, rubs her temples and replies, “no I didn’t.”
She also captioned the TikTok, “no I didn’t.”
The show’s creator, Joshua Safran, saw Olivia’s response and issued an apology. He retweeted Olivia’s TikTok video and wrote, “Ok my bad. Check out Olivia Jade’s video!”

Just when everyone thought the dust had settled, Olivia kicked it back up.
In another TikTok video published on July 12, the YouTuber revealed whether or not she would be taking legal action against HBO Max & ‘GG’ for using her name without her consent.
“I am not suing anybody. I don’t think I even can. I mean, I’m not gunna go and get up against Netflix or HBO or whatever the f**k it’s on, but I think you’re allowed to use names, they didn’t ask, I didn’t give consent. That was the same thing with the college doc. on Netflix, like I didn’t give consent for them to use any of my YouTube videos,” Olivia said.

Basically, Lori and Mossimo cheated the system and paid their daughters’ ways into the University of Southern California.
According to the criminal complaint against them, the couple paid $500,000 to Rick Singer and Key Worldwide Foundation to falsely designate their daughters, Olivia and Isabella Rose Giannulli, as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, even though neither ever participated in the sport.
Both Lori and Mossimo served time in jail for the crime.
On Aug. 21, a judge approved the couple’s plea deal, sentencing Loughlin to two months in jail, a $150,000 fine, and 150 hours of community service, while Giannulli received five months in jail, a $250,000 fine, and 250 hours of community service.
