Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade painted as seasoned rower in apparent fake résumé released by prosecutors

Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli has extensive rowing experience on her résumé, but federal prosecutors say it’s phony baloney.

Prosecutors for the U.S. Attorney’s Office - District of Massachusetts filed new documents in the college admissions scandal case, including a falsified résumé for the social media influencer. While Olivia Jade, didn’t participate in the crew, it says she was a coxswain, a person in a non-rowing position who steers the boat, and had many accolades for it, including gold, silver and bronze medals at all different competitions.

There’s a lot of redacted info on the resumé, including her first name, but it’s clearly Olivia Jade’s as it notes her older sister is on the rowing team — and Isabella previously was admitted to USC as a crew recruit. Prosecutors claim Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid disgraced college admissions expert Rick Singer $500,000 in total to get both girls into University of Southern California designated as as crew recruits, despite neither woman playing the sport.

It is unclear who wrote the resumé, which was submitted along with a profile page, and which suggests that Olivia Jade, who is known for her online makeup tutorials, would be a successful coxswain in one of USC's four boats. It also calls her “highly-talented” and says she’s been “successful in both men’s and women’s boats.” Her skill set is described as “awareness, organization, direction and steering.”

Prosecutors claim Loughlin and her husband ran the scam with Singer twice. In Olivia Jade’s case, they allegedly set up a falsified crew profile for her. They also took an "action picture" of Olivia Jade on an ergometer for the fake profile, presenting the teen as a coxswain for the L.A. Marina Club team.

Prosecutors claim Donna Heinel, the former USC senior associate athletic director who worked with Singer, presented Olivia Jade to the USC subcommittee for athletic admissions, and — based on the falsified athletic credentials — obtained the subcommittee's approval to admit her to USC as a crew recruit. Shortly after, Loughlin and Mossimo sent a $50,000 check to USC and a $200,000 check to Singer’s fraudulent charity.

Previous documents showed that Mossimo attempted to keep a guidance counselor at Olivia Jade’s private high school from interfering with her being recruited as a crew athlete at USC. Someone supposedly questioned him about Olivia Jade being admitted to college for the sport and he said that she rowed crew at a private club. As a result, the school promised not to interfere with her application to USC.

The defense of Loughlin and her husband is reportedly that they didn’t realize they were doing anything wrong and that the money was a legitimate donation to the college. They face multiple charges, including bribery and money laundering conspiracy, and face up to 45 years in prison if convicted.

Olivia Jade and Isabella are no longer currently enrolled at the university — as of October.

Last week, other papers were filed by prosecutors to rebut Loughlin’s legal team’s claim that the government has been withholding evidence. They insisted no such evidence is being held back, taking a swipe at the couple by noting, "the absence of such evidence is a result of their criminal conduct, not any government disclosure violations." The documents also said that some of the evidence Loughlin’s team was citing as being withheld was from interviews that hadn’t yet been conducted. Again, it took a dig at the defendants, stating, "The government has broad powers, but they do not include mental telepathy or time travel. The government cannot disclose witness statements before the witnesses make them."

Prosecutors are seeking an October trial for the couple. Currently on the books are two status conference hearings, on Feb. 27 and May 2, neither of which the couple are required to attend.

Separate from the pair’s legal woes, they’re trying to sell their lavish L.A. mansion for $28 million.
