YouTube star Olivia Jade Giannulli is on the mend after a frightening fall in her bathroom left her with injuries to her head and face.
During a makeup tutorial, the 21-year-old detailed the incident, explaining she fainted the night before. “A crazy thing happened to me last night,” she began. “I ran into the bathroom thinking I was gonna throw up and then I passed out. I locked the door because I didn’t want my boyfriend [Jackson Guthy] to come in because I was, like, dying!”
The influencer added that her boyfriend “heard this big thud,” then came running in the room to check on her. “The door was locked but I was trying to unlock it,” she said. “It’s so spotty, I barely remember.”
It was then the brunette beauty revealed the extent of her injuries. “I split my lip a little and then I have a bump on my head, right there, and my nose hurts really bad too,” Giannulli shared. While lifting up her lip, she included a caption on screen that read: “also chipped my tooth.”
The latest video is one of two that the controversial star has released since vowing to return to YouTube in 2021 after the college admissions scandal that sent both her mother, Lori Loughlin, and father, Mossimo Giannulli, to prison.
Last week, Giannulli shared her first vlog in over a year, where she briefly talked about her appearance on Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk, during which she apologized for her family’s involvement in the scandal.
“Obviously, did my Red Table Talk interview and I think if you have any questions for me or you have anything to say or you’re like ‘Why are you back?’ you can go watch the interview. I think I kind of disclosed what I thought I needed to say on there,” she explained during her comeback video.
Giannulli then inserted an “editor’s note” into the video, clarifying her original statement. “I didn’t want this to come across the wrong way and I’d rather just say something and make the video look a little weird,” she said in the clip. “I don’t mean to say that in a dismissive way or a pretentious way. I think what I was trying to get across was I felt like the thing I wanted to do the most was apologize for so long and I felt like I got to do that at Red Table.”
“And so although I can’t change the past, I can change how I act and what I do going forward,” she said, adding: “but just for my own mental sanity I don’t want to keep rehashing things. I just want to move on and do better.”
Both of Giannulli’s parents were locked up as a result of their involvement in the college scandal. Loughlin was released in December 2020 after spending nearly two months behind bars. Her father, Mossimo, is currently completing his sentence at a federal prison in Lompoc, Calif.
