Olivia Jade and her boyfriend Jackson Guthy have not only cooled off but reportedly split in the wake of the national college admission scam called “Operation Varsity Blues.”

“Olivia [Jade] and Jackson [Guthy] have been cooling off for a couple months,” a source close to the 19-year-old YouTube star shared with US Weekly on Tuesday. “They aren’t together anymore, but are still very cordial and really do remain friends.” (RELATED: Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Bragged About Going To School To Party)

Another report the same day alleged that Jade was “excited” to be moving out of her parents’ home and into her own place following all the drama revolving around her parents after they were arrested and accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get her and her sister, Isabella Giannulli, into the University of Southern California (USC) by pretending their daughters were competitive rowing recruits. The two have since pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering in the case.

“Olivia is doing well and is really excited to be moving into her own apartment,” source told People magazine. “She’s leaning on and hanging out with close friends at the moment.”

As previously reported, Jade reportedly started speaking to her parents once again after the news broke of the national college admission scam.

“Olivia was angry with her parents at first, but now realizes that they were just trying to do what’s best for her,” a source close to the social media celebrity shared. “Olivia loves her mom and dad very much, but is especially close with Lori.”
