NEW YORK (1010) -- Actress Lori Loughlin's daughters will reportedly not return to the University of Southern California for fear of being bullied, following revelations that their parents paid $500,000 to get them admitted to the Los Angeles university.

Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella, 20, have decided to withdraw from USC, TMZ reported, because they feel if they return, they will be "viciously bullied."

According to TMZ, their decision not to return has the "full support" of their parents Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli. 

Olivia "is a mess, despondent and feeling like it's the end of the world," a source tells TMZ. She and her sister plan to "lay low" for the time being. 

We're told Olivia and Isabella will "lay low" and not try and enroll in another school ... at least not for a long while. 

According to court documents, the parents paid $500,000 to have their daughters designated as recruits for the crew team at USC -- despite the fact they did not actually participate in crew. Giannulli allegedly sent action photos of their daughters on rowing machines to Rick Singer, the ringleader of the alleged scam, and he presumably sent them on to USC.
