Sephora has cut ties with Lori Loughlin’s influencer daughter amid the college admissions scandal
Lori Loughlin‘s daughter, 19-year-old beauty influencer Olivia Jade, is getting heat and losing sponsorship deals after her mom was allegedly involved in a college admissions cheating scandal. Loughlin is among dozens charged in an alleged college admissions scam involving elite colleges and universities including Yale, Georgetown, the University of Southern California, and Stanford. The mother of two and husband, Mossimo founder Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly gave $500,000 in bribes to say Olivia was part of the USC rowing team when that was not true, the indictment states. Although it is unclear whether or not Olivia was aware of her parents’ involvement, her uber-popular Instagram and YouTube blogging business appears to be taking a hit.
Thanks to her more than 1.4 million Instagram followers and 1.9 million YouTube subscribers, the USC freshman has done at least 10 sponsored Instagram posts with more than eight different brands ranging from Amazon to Sephora throughout the past 12 months. Most recently, she collaborated with Sephora’s in-house beauty brand, Sephora Collection, to launch the Olivia Jade x Sephora Collection Bronze & Illuminate Palette in December 2018.
