Brand influencer Olivia Jade was dropped by makeup giant Sephora amid her parents’ college entrance cheating scandal. The 19-year-old was named Brand Ambassador for the Sephora Collection in 2018.
According to The Blast, Sephora parted ways with the YouTube star after her mother, actress Lori Loughlin, and dad, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, were arrested and charged with mail fraud and bribery this week.
Sephora announced the end of their partnership with Olivia on Twitter.com.
“After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately,” Sephora tweeted on Thursday.
Olivia, who has over 2 million YouTube followers, created a bronzing and illuminating palette with Sephora Collection. As of yesterday, the collection was sold out and it’s been removed from the company website.
Loughlin, who stars in Fuller House, turned herself in to police on Wednesday. She was released on $1 million bond later that day. Her husband Mossimo was arrested on Tuesday and released on $1 million which he secured with the couple’s Bel-Air mansion as collateral.

Their parents are accused of paying $500,000 to a California man who used his nonprofit to help the girls cheat on tests to get into USC.
Olivia and Isabella have since returned home to California after their brief vacation in the Bahamas.
