Every Brand That's Dropped Lori Loughlin and Daughter Olivia Jade Following College Admission Scandal

It should be noted that Jade also has endorsements with Amazon, Dolce & Gabbana, Lulus, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Smashbox Beauty Cosmetics, Smile Direct Club, Too Faced Cosmetics, Boohoo, and Unilever's TRESemmé, yet those companies have yet to comment on the current status of those partnerships.

Loughlin, who was on the cast of the hit 90s sitcom "Full House", and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of spending $500,000 in bribes to help her two daughters gain admission into USC.

Products from her makeup collaboration had been removed from Sephora's website by Thursday afternoon.

When reached by Fox News, a rep for Loughlin said that they "have no information to share".

A 204-page criminal complaint unsealed in federal court in Boston Tuesday, alleges that Loughlin and her husband had her daughters pose as coxswains for a local crew team and on rowing machines, adding that federal agents obtained emails from Loughlin and her husband allegedly implicating them in the scam. The scheme is also being called the "college entrance exam cheating scandal" - because the children's scores on the admissions test were usurped by the money paid.

The entire operation was masterminded by William Singer of Newport Beach, authorities said.

USC said they were investigating her enrollment at the school, as well as other students who might have been involved in the bribery scam.

The revised lawsuit drops Olsen and includes students from Tulane University, an unnamed community college and Rutgers University.

A $500-billion U.S. civil lawsuit filed by a parent on Wednesday in San Francisco accused 45 defendants of defrauding and inflicting emotional distress on everyone whose "rights to a fair chance at entrance to college" were stolen through their alleged conspiracy. TVLine reports that Huffman, known for her role on Desperate Housewives, a "charitable contribution" of $15,000 (£11,500) to participate in the scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter.

Tresemme, on the other hand, hasn't returned TooFab's request for comment but has been responding to comments on their most recent Instagram post.

Her complaint was filed in California Superior Court. More lawsuits are likely.

The Stanford case is notable because it is among the country's most prestigious and selective universities, admitting just 4.3 percent of its applicants a year ago.

They'll probably want to spend as much time together as possible amid the allegations!

Meantime, officials at universities including Yale, Stanford and Georgetown must now examine criminal claims made against key staffers, some of whom already have part ways. But while you might think that, if Loughlin had any involvement in illegal activities, she'd keep her kids' college admission on the down low, well, you'd be wrong.
