Sephora Ends Partnership With Influencer Olivia Jade

Sephora Ends Partnership With Influencer Olivia Jade

The Hallmark Channel's parent company, Crown Media, has made a decision to sever its relationship with Lori Loughlin after federal authorities charged the actress in connection with an elite nationwide college cheating scheme this week. The 19-year-old University of Southern California student was dropped Thursday from advertising deals with cosmetics retailer Sephora and hair products company TRESemme, the companies said in statements.

Sephora's decision to discontinue the collaboration comes after news hit on Tuesday that her parents were part of the nation's biggest college admissions fraud scandal, where almost 40 adults were charged for taking illegal measures to get their children admitted to elite colleges. The indictment says they "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".

Loughlin's representatives did not immediately respond to Mashable's requests for comment.

Lori Loughlin's daughters will not return to the University of Southern California, or USC, because they reportedly can not deal with the bullying. "I'm just gonna be successful at YouTube and not have to worry about school". Fox News noted that Loughlin had been filming a movie in Vancouver.

Hallmark Channel told the Associated Press that actress Lori Loughlin will no longer be involved with the network after starring in more than a dozen of the network's films. Olivia is your typical student who hangs out with her friends, works out after school, etc. ET has reached out to Loughlin's rep for comment.

The Giannullis allegedly bribed sports recruiters to have their daughters accepted into the school as crew athletes, even though they didn't play the sport.

Loughlin has since been released on $1 million bail alongside husband Mossimo Giannulli, while both daughters face expulsion from USC due to the scandal.

Georgetown University said it was "deeply disappointed" to learn former tennis coach Gordon Ernst is charged in the scheme but said Ernst "has not coached our tennis team since December 2017, following an internal investigation that found he had violated University rules concerning admissions". "They are both so anxious about their parents and the repercussions".

Olivia has since disembarked and returned home to L.A. USC officials said on Wednesday that they're still reviewing the applications of students whose families were implicated in the bribery scandal.

The Stanford case is notable because it is among the country's most prestigious and selective universities, admitting just 4.3 percent of its applicants a year ago.

Coaches from Yale, Stanford, Wake Forest and Georgetown universities and USC, among others, are implicated in the case.
