TOM Felton may have played a wizard, but he apparently couldn’t conjure up any magic with Olivia Jade.
The Dancing with the Stars alum shared a story about the Harry Potter actor sliding into her DM’s, only to fail to get her to notice him.

Olivia, 22, shared her story with E!’s Down in the DMs, explaining that Tom, 34, reached out to her with the message: “Hello mate. Dig your work.”
He added a snake emoji in honor of his Harry Potter character, Draco Malfoy, and his Slytherin house mascot.
But the reference was lost on Olivia.
“I haven’t seen the Harry Potter movies, so I didn’t get the joke,” the social influencer said. “I didn’t respond and now I just exposed that I’ve seen it and I didn’t respond so that’s also rude of me.”
The daughter of Lori Laughlin did apologize for giving Tom the cold shoulder, and subsequently outing him.
“I’m really sorry I’m going to expose you, but I think you’re probably a really nice person,” she confessed.
“I just need to watch more movies.”
While Tom may have struck out, Olivia has reportedly put a spell on Euphoria star Jacob Elordi.
The two were spotted grabbing coffee in Los Angeles on December 2021, sparking relationship rumors.
The pair appeared to be having a low-key afternoon as Olivia was dressed in a sweat suit and Jacob was in a hoodie and jeans, according to photos obtained by the Daily Mail.
Jacob was walking his golden retriever, Layla at the time.
The sighting comes as the Kissing Booth star was dating actress and model Kaia Gerber, however, they have reportedly called it quits.
HOOKING UP WITH THE STARS
Before that, there were rumors she was hooking up with her DWTS partner, and married man, Val Chmerkovskiy.
Val, 35, and Olivia were shockingly eliminated on November 8. But the rumors of a behind-the-scenes hookup continue.
Earlier in the season, a person alleging to work on the set of DWTS claimed in a TikTok video that she was approached by a male cast member with a strange request.
The TikTok user claimed the dancer requested “for his wife not to come near his trailer.”
She added that the dancer in question “and his wife are never seen on set together,” before alleging to have heard the “Dancer and young female dancer partner/contestant giggling.”
Olivia then jumped in, saying: “I just want to clear the air before this goes any further or this video blows up any more.
“First of all, the woman who posted it blocked me and somebody sent me this video.
“I’m just gonna be super blunt and straight up and say Val and I are not hooking up, we have never hooked up.”
Olivia went on to say: “This is a complete rumor. We’re genuinely really good friends and I adore his wife.
“It’s literally just a dance show and we’re just friends and I don’t know why everything always has to be something. But I’ve obviously already seen a ton of negative comments and, yeah, I mean, I get it if it was true, but it’s not so let’s end this hear and lets f**king dance and have fun on this show and not create lies.”
‘A LITTLE CRUSH’
But The Sun sources say Olivia definitely had a “little crush” on Val at one point, though now views him “like a brother.”
The insider claimed: ”There is for sure nothing going on with Olivia and Val.
“She is close with both him and his wife because she genuinely cares so passionately about the show but that’s it.
“She for sure thinks he’s cute and maybe originally had a little crush but looks up to him now like a brother. His advice means a lot to her.”
Val has been married to fellow DWTS dancer Jenna Johnson since 2019.
Olivia should be accustomed to controversy at this point.
Prior to her appearance on the show, she found herself wrapped up in the college admissions scandal that made national headlines.
In 2019, Olivia’s parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, were indicted and accused of bribing administrators at the University of Southern California to accept Olivia and sister Bella Giannulli.
Both Lori, 57, and Mossimo, 58, were sentenced to time in prison and ordered to pay $400,000 in fines between them.
