Olivia, an established YouTube influencer, has already lost one of her business ties (Sephora) because of the controversy.

The 19-year-old University of Southern California freshman has found herself caught in the crossfire after her parents, actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly paid $500,000 for her and her sister to gain admission to the elite university. As of Thursday afternoon, the retailer had pulled the palette from its web site.

Among the USC applicants who allegedly gained admission via bribery are the daughters of actress Lori Loughlin, best known for her role on the hit sitcom "Full House".

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.

"Desperate Housewives" actress Felicity Huffman, who is married to longtime actor William H. Macy, was also charged in the case. I don't really care about school, as you guys all know'. Her last pic on IG was shared in February and her last YouTube video went up just days before the scam was revealed!

"There were essentially two kinds of fraud that Singer was selling", U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said.

Other than Huffman and Loughlin, dozens of other people, including the CEOs of companies, were charged in the case, which was called "Operation Varsity Blues" by federal officials. "She is in school and I'm glad".
