A source said: "Jada told Jacqueline that they had 'decided to go in another direction' with the school."

Olivier has reportedly "thrashed-out" a compensation deal and signed a confidentiality agreement about the school. The couple - whose children go to the school - have denied they follow the faith. - Bang
