  • Lori Loughlin Fired from 'Fuller House' Following College Admission Scandal

In the wake of the charges against her mother Lori Loughlin for her alleged involvement in a scheme to pay her daughter's way into college, Olivia Jade, whose real name is Olivia Giannulli, has reportedly quit university.

Olivia Jade, a popular YouTuber with nearly 2 million subscribers, is suddenly at the center of massive controversy, and even legal trouble, after her mother, actress Lori Loughlin, allegedly paid bribes of $500,000 to get her daughter into a prestigious college.

"After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately", a rep confirmed to Fast Company. Olivia Jade is friends with Caruso's daughter, Gianna, and the two, along with other friends, were spending spring break aboard his yacht in the Bahamas, according to the outlet.

It is now unknown whether or not Olivia will be expelled from University of Southern California, where she is now enrolled. Her daughter, Olivia Jade, was also dropped from makeup giant Sephora. Fox News noted that Loughlin had been filming a movie in Vancouver.

"Dozens of individuals involved in a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits were arrested by federal agents in multiple states this morning and charged in federal court in Boston", a DOJ news release said of the case.

Giannulli, who goes by Olivia Jade, is a social media influencer with more than 1.4 million followers on Instagram and 1.9 million subscribers on YouTube.
