Olivia Jade has returned to Instagram with a fresh post for the first time in five months.
The 20-year-old daughter of Fuller House actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli was seen in a low-cut black tank top with spaghetti straps while laying in bed. She stared at the camera then pulled a funny face.
‘I hope you have a beautiful day,’ was all the former USC student said in her caption to her 1.4M followers. The comments were mostly positive with followers saying, ‘The most beautiful’ and ‘you too my darling!’
This comes days after she made her first YouTube post since her parent’s ‘Varsity Blues’ college admissions scandal broke in March.
Back to social media: Olivia Jade has returned to Instagram with a fresh post for the first time in five months. The 20-year-old daughter of Fuller House actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli was seen in a low-cut black tank top with spaghetti straps
Interestingly, Olivia has the same number of Instagram followers since before the scandal broke.
Her last post was made on July 29 and was a flashback photo with her mom Lori. Jade was just a toddler at the time. The caption read, ‘One day late. happy birthday. i love you so much ❤.’
Before that, her last post was on February 28 as she shared an alluring image from an event.
Jade had to turn away from social media after her parents were arrested and charged in March for allegedly paying $ 500,000 to get both Olivia and their other daughter Bella into the University of Southern California as rowing recruits. Neither Olivia nor Bella row.
In October, things took a turn for the worse when Lori and her husband were slapped with additional charges including mail fraud, money laundering and bribery.
The Hallmark channel star was said to have considered pleading guilty, but was talked out of it by her husband.

Lori and Mossimo are just weeks away from their trial date with up to 60 years in prison on the table for their crimes.
Her next court date will be January 17, 2020.
It has been claimed that Lori is rehearsing for the court date with mock trials conducted by her attorney.
Jade cannot say anything about the case on social media. And she explained that in her YouTube video which was shared last week. She also promoted the new clip with a link on Instagram.
‘Obviously I have been gone for a really long time,’ she began.

‘As much as I wish I could talk about all of this, it’s really hard for me to say this because I know that it’s something that needs to be addressed. It’s just unfortunately which is also why I didn’t know when I should come back to Youtube. The reason for that is because I’m legally not allowed to speak on anything going on right now.’
The 20-year-old former influencer addressed what she could while speaking out about operation varsity blues in which her parents have pleaded not guilty.
‘A part of me is like “Should I come back to Youtube right now?”‘ she continued while sitting in a new bedroom that appeared to be different than the chic mansion she grew up in.
‘It’s been so long and I actually really really miss it. I genuinely miss filming and I feel like a huge part of me is just not the same because it’s something I am really passionate about and something I really like to do.’
She’s back: This comes days after she made her first YouTube post since her parent’s ‘Varsity Blues’ college admissions scandal broke
She continued: ‘But I also didn’t know and debated for seven or eight months like well if I can’t talk about it is there a point in coming back? And not being able to say anything. I want to come back because I want to come back. There is no point in me just talking for 10 minutes to the camera about how I wish I could say something when I really can’t. So, I’m going to leave it at that.’
At the end of the video, she thanked her subscribers for ‘sticking around’ before saying this is the ‘best she can do.’
Olivia went on to say that she ‘wants to move on with her life’ and said she is ‘terrified to make this video and come back.’
The youngest daughter to Lori then revealed more of her vlogs will be coming back soon with a little message at the end of the video that said, ‘Thank you for watching. I’ll see you soon.’

After the news broke of the scandal, Olivia halted her Youtube channel and went radio silent on social media.
Shortly after, her handful of brand deals started to slip away as companies like HP, Sephora, and fashion retailer Lulus all ended their contracts with the star.
‘HP worked with Lori Loughlin and Olivia Jade in 2017 for a one-time product campaign. HP does not currently have a relationship with either of them,’ the company said in a statement in the wake of the scandal.

Fellow actress Felicity Huffman recently finished up her two-week jail time for paying $ 15,000 to have her daughter’s SAT scores altered.
She was also given a year’s probation, 250 hours of community service and had to pay a fine of $ 30,000.
Toby MacFarlane was sentenced to six months in prison for his involvement in the scandal after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
He was ordered to pay about $ 82,000 in back taxes and interest to the IRS after he lied about his son’s height for the basketball team and designated his daughter as a soccer player.
