Remember about three weeks ago when we found out Olivia Jade Giannulli and her boyfriend had broken up?
For those who missed it, the controversial YouTube star was dating musician Jackson Guthy, whom you may know better from his short-lived time as a teen idol who toured with Big Time Rush and One Direction around 2012.
He’s now 23 and still plugging away looking for a second bite at the music career apple. (Don’t worry, his parents are billionaires, he’ll be fine.)

Anyway, they’re dunzo now, so why are we even talking about it?
Well, there seems to be a bit of a discrepancy here with the story the public is getting.
Guess it runs in the family…
See, the story we heard earlier this month was that the couple had grown apart — but ultimately it was Olivia who broke it off, despite how supportive he had been during her scandal.
She had even crashed at his place for a while as she kept a low profile, away from her parents…
Full House star Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are looking down the barrel of a very public trial for their alleged role in the massive college admissions scam.
They’re accused of bribing USC officials to pretend she and big sister Bella were on the crew team, even though they’d never participated in the sport; they just wanted to guarantee admission to the college.

Considering the massive amount of evidence the feds gathered, most parents involved plead guilty. But not Lori and Mossimo.
Now Mom and Dad are facing up to 40 years on charges of fraud and money laundering if convicted. Olivia and her sister may even have to testify!
You’d think a supportive boyfriend would be something she’d want to hold on to.
So it always struck us odd she chose that moment to split.
But… did she though??
On Wednesday an inside source spilled to Us Weekly it was the other way around!
“Jackson broke up with Olivia because it was all getting to be too much for him.”
Ooh, the plot thickens.
The new insider claims it was the scandal that drove Jackson away:
“It wasn’t necessarily affecting his career, but the fact that he couldn’t be seen out in public with Olivia was difficult.”
So maybe it wasn’t Olivia hiding out at his place at all; maybe he was the one who felt like they needed to hide out.
It makes sense.
Since they broke up, she’s been spotted partying with other YouTubers, clubbing with her sister, generally not looking like she has a care in the world.
Well, at least we know she isn’t stressing about her final exams. LOLz!
Who do YOU think dumped whom??
