In a statement, Hallmark Channel's parent company, Crown Media Family Network, said it was "saddened" by news of the allegations. Nearly instantly after the announcement, a video showing Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli, an Instagram and YouTube influencer, complaining about her college classes drew outrage.

Former Hallmark movie darling Lori Loughlin has been dropped by the network in the wake of the college admissions scandal that shook the news cycle on Tuesday.

Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $500,000 so they're two daughters, Olivia and Bella, could get accepted into USC. Olivia has 1.9 fans that follow her YouTube channel, but has had to disable the comments sections after she was viciously bullied after her parents' arrests.

It is now unknown whether or not Olivia will be expelled from University of Southern California, where she is now enrolled.

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". "I just love all of it. She just finished her first year of college and she really enjoys it and I think she'll get her degree", Loughlin stated when asked about Isabella's dreams of becoming an actress. "You can study theater [and] whatever you need to also at school.' I think I've shown her and presented all the pitfalls that there might be".

"Thereafter, the Giannullis agreed with [the witness] to use bribes to facilitate her admission to USC as a recruited crew coxswain, even though she did not row competitively or otherwise participate in crew", the complaint alleges.

Giannulli has also been sponsored by a number of other companies, including TRESemmé, Princess Polly, Smile Direct Club, Amazon Prime Student, Clinique, Lulus, Windsor, Dolce & Gabbana Beauty, Conair, Boohoo and Smashbox Cosmetics.

Officials said the operation was the "largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice". So did her empire, despite Stewart's efforts to separate her personal actions from it: "Wrong - you're the brand", he said.

Some parents paid between $15,000 and $75,000 per test to help their children get a better score, prosecutors said. Loughlin was arrested in California in Wednesday and appeared in court.

Giannulli founded the Mossimo brand with $100,000 borrowed from his father, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Furthermore, the feds say they have recorded phone calls from Loughlin and Huffman talking about the alleged scheme with a witness who was cooperating with investigators. The racketeering conspiracy case includes 33 parents, as well nine coaches from universities that include USC, UCLA, Yale, Stanford and Georgetown.
