Justice has been shockingly swift for Lori Loughlin’s family. It was just Monday when all of this began – Lori and her husband were indicted for bribing USC officials and NCAA officials at a cost of $500K to fake her daughter’s athletic status. Her older daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli was partying on a yacht belonging to USC’s Board of Trustees Chairman at the time, but she was hustled off the yacht (Invictus!) very quickly. There were lots of rumors that Olivia would be expelled from USC. Well, she’s not even giving the university a chance to expel her – she’s leaving of her own accord, which is probably what the school worked out with the family behind the scenes anyway.
Lori Loughlin’s daughters are not letting USC decide their fate, because they will NOT be returning to the University for fear of bullying … sources connected to both daughters tell TMZ. We’re told 19-year-old Olivia and 20-year-old Isabella have made the decision to withdraw from the University. Our sources say they have the full support of their parents, Lori and Mossimo Giannulli, both of whom have been indicted in the college bribery scandal.
Our sources say the family feels certain, if the girls went back to USC, they would be “viciously bullied.” So, the decision has been made.
We’re told Olivia and Isabella never really wanted to go to USC. Our sources say they liked the concept of school principally because of partying, and had their sights set on Arizona State University. That’s why Mossimo sent an email saying he wanted to get his daughters “into a school other than ASU!” Our sources say Olivia in particular “is a mess, despondent and feeling like it’s the end of the world.” We’re told Olivia and Isabella will “lay low” and not try and enroll in another school … at least not for a long while.
Because of BULLYING. LOL. Is it really classified as “bullying” if other students are like “your cheating, lying ass doesn’t belong here”? Isn’t that just a statement of fact? Anyway, of course Olivia Jade won’t apply to any other school. I predict she’ll parlay this scandal into a reality show or something like that. She’s already seen an increase in followers on all of her social media platforms. But! It seems like Olivia is already losing some of her sponsorships.
Lori Loughlin’s alleged cheating is already costing her daughter, Olivia Jade — ’cause Sephora just kicked the kid to the curb in the wake of the college admissions scandal. A honcho for Sephora — which had a partnership with Olivia — tells TMZ, “After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately.”
Olivia had a makeup partnership with the cosmetics chain that produced the Olivia Jade x Sephora palette. That page on Sephora’s website has been 86′d. Olivia’s page with clothing brand Princess Polly is no longer active … we’ve reached out to the company to see if the line has been completely shelved, but no word back so far.
The question in my mind isn’t “why did Sephora drop her?” but “why did she have a Sephora contract in the first place?” I know she’s an influencer and she has more than a million followers, but yeesh, why did Sephora get into bed with her?? Variety reports that HP has also ended their sponsorship deal with Olivia, as did Lulus (online fashion retailer), who says they have no plans to work with Olivia again. Olivia also has sponsorships with: Amazon, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Smashbox Beauty Cosmetics, Smile Direct Club, Too Faced Cosmetics, Boohoo, and Unilever’s TRESemmé. Variety says that all of these deals could be shelved. *cackle*
