"Olivia was harmed and totally embarrassed, he felt that almost all his friends were almost lost because he was barely talking to his parents," a friend who talked to him told CNN .
Giannulli's parents, actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, among the 33 parents accused of giving bribes for their children to attend prestigious institutions.
The pair was accused of paying $ 500,000 in a fake charity to get their two daughters to the University of Southern California as crew recruits. Their daughters did not participate in sport.
Giannulli, visited by Olivia Jade, is a student at the Southern California University from the fall of 2018.
"Her best friend is doing everything they can, but she does not want to see anyone today," added the source. "Olivia has remained off social media because he is so much hate."
A deleted video ad on Olivia Jade Giannulli's Instagram account, published in November 2017, shows two making cookies and getting selfies.
"Winter baking with my favorite @loriloughlin," caption read. "We print selfies from our @HP Sprocket printer to help you remember the day."
Giannulli's parents appeared on court last week but did not inform the public how they planned to plead.
They are charged with conspiracy to make mail fraud and an extra money laundering charge.
Earlier this week, they were accused of conspiring to wash bribes and other payments through a charity run by Rick Singer, the mastermind of the scam, as well as transferring money to the United States to promote fraud, prosecutors said.
"My daughter was completely ignorant about my actions, and in my misguided and deep wrong way, I was betrayed to her," he said in a statement. "This kind of respect for him and the public will take me all my life. My desire to help my daughter has no reason to break the law or make a lie."
The federal judge will have the final say to Huffman's but the prosecutors recommend imprisonment in the "low end" of the sentencing range, a $ 20,000 penalty and 12 months of supervisory release, according to one plea agreement.
