Lori Loughlin's daughter loses Sephora, TRESemme deals over college bribery scheme

Authorities say the social media star's parents took part in a bribery scheme to get her into college.

Actress Lori Loughlin's eldest daughter has been dropped by another company that advertises on her popular social media accounts as the fallout from a college-admission bribery case continues.

Hair products company TRESemme said in a statement Thursday that it is no longer working with Olivia Jade Giannulli.

Earlier in the day, the cosmetics company Sephora made the same move. The company said after reviewing the developments, it had ended its partnership with Giannulli "effective immediately."

Giannulli, a 19-year-old student at the University of Southern California, had promoted TRESemme products on her social-media accounts, which include a popular YouTube channel. Her parents are among 50 people arrested in a nationwide college bribery scandal.

Prosecutors allege Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli paid $500,000 to have their two daughters labeled as crew-team recruits at USC, even though neither is a rower.
