Sephora cuts ties with Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade

Share

Loughlin is accused of paying Singer $500,000 to help both her daughters cheat their way into USC by bribing an athletics official at the school to pretend the girls were gifted rowers. Olivia has also partnered with Amazon, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Sephora and TRESemmé, among many other brands, although it remains to be seen if any of those sponsorships will be affected.

It turns out that Olivia was a bit of a high-roller herself with the USC elites because Caruso, who has condemned the scandal, serves as the chairman of USC's board of trustees. "HP does not now have a relationship with either of them. HP has removed the content from its properties", the company told Variety.

One of the daughters, Olivia Giannulli, has become a prominent "influencer" on social media under the name "Olivia Jade".

A rep for Olivia Jade declined to comment, as did Estee Lauder Companies, which owns Smashbox and Too Faced.

Though Sephora did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment on the story, Giannulli's various business deals are likely in jeopardy in relation to the scandal. "Brands should always do their proper due diligence on the content and news associated with influencers that they would engage with and are engaging with over time".

Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky on "Full House", faces felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

The group were traveling through the Bahamas at the time when she made a decision to fly home to be with her family.

The couple allegedly "agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team - despite the fact that they did not participate in crew - thereby facilitating their admission to USC", according to the court documents.

Furthermore, the feds say they have recorded phone calls from Loughlin and Huffman talking about the alleged scheme with a witness who was cooperating with investigators.

CNN reports that 50 people were charged in investigation which - incredibly - went by the name "Operation Varsity Blues".

She appeared Tuesday in federal court in Los Angeles, where a judge set her bond at $250,000 and federal agents took her passport.

"Applicants in the current admissions cycle who are connected to the scheme alleged by the government will be denied admission to USC", the university said in an earlier statement.

She later apologised for those comments in a separate video.

"I don't know how much of school I'm going to attend", she said in an August 2018 video.

In response to the headlines about the admissions scandal, the University of Southern California released the following statement: "We are aware of the ongoing wide-ranging criminal investigation involving universities nationwide, including USC".

Trust me, that's not money well spent unless you're just donating buildings at the school.
