  • A Mom Whose Son Didn't Get Into College Is Suing Lori Loughlin And Felicity Huffman For $500 Billion featured image

She's the daughter of popular actress Lori Loughlin.

Paris-based Sephora says in a statement Thursday that after reviewing the developments, the company has ended its partnership with 19-year-old Olivia Jade Giannulli "effective immediately".

Others also slammed Sephora for still carrying the product, and thus, associating with Gianulli! As her following grew, fashion and cosmetics brands linked with the social media star so they could promote their products.

The decision comes after fans of the brand took to their social media pages and website - where a palette created by Olivia Jade was being sold - to share their pleas that Sephora detach from the influencer.

Loughlin, who was on the cast of the hit 90s sitcom "Full House", and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of spending $500,000 in bribes to help her two daughters gain admission into USC.

"We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations", Crown Media Family Networks said in a statement Thursday.

Some of Jade's online videos and photos were paid partnerships with Amazon.com Inc and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise Co.

Loughlin has not yet entered a plea in the case, and her attorney declined comment Wednesday after her first appearance in a Los Angeles federal court.

The entire operation was masterminded by William Singer of Newport Beach, authorities said.

She said the rigidity chafes a bit but called the result "heartwarming", adding, "You go to bed and you don't have any bad dreams".

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

Felicity Huffman ("Desperate Housewives", "American Crime") was among the other prominent parents, including a lawyer, doctor and hedge fund manager, indicted in the scam.

The original suit was filed on behalf of two Stanford University students who claimed they were harmed because they were denied a fair opportunity for admission to schools to which they applied.

Despite making the choice to attend post-secondary, Olivia has admitted that school isn't really her thing.

In the largest known college admissions scandal in US history, federal prosecutors on Tuesday said a California company made about $25 million by charging parents to secure spots for their children at elite schools, including Georgetown, Stanford and Yale, by cheating the admissions process. The scheme is also being called the "college entrance exam cheating scandal" - because the children's scores on the admissions test were usurped by the money paid.

Giannulli said in one of her vlogs, "I don't know how much of school I'm going to attend, but I'm gonna go in and talk to my deans and everyone, and hope that I can try and balance it all".
