A week before actress Lori Loughlin was arrested for her alleged involvement in the college admissions scam, her daughter, YouTuber Olivia Jade Giannulli, talked about giving college advice to high schoolers.

"We are no longer working with" Loughlin, Hallmark television owner Crown Media Family Networks confirmed Thursday. Since news of the USC Scandal has dropped, people are practically begging Sephora to cut ties with Olivia.

She and her husband have been accused of paying thousands of dollars in bribes to get their daughter 19-year-old Olivia Jade Giannulli into the University of Southern California.

According to The Daily Mail, the day after classes began at USC, Olivia Giannulli posted a picture of herself in Fiji; she reportedly stayed there for the entire week of classes. She previously collaborated with the brand on the Olivia Jade x Sephora Collection Bronze & Illuminate Palette.

Global BC has reached out to representatives of unions for local TV and film workers for comment.

Giannulli's parents allegedly portrayed their daughters, Olivia and her older sister Isabella, as recruits to the USC crew team after they figured that for the girls to be recruited as crew coxswains, bribes would have to be paid.

Singer allegedly had the girls pose for photos and then doctored the images to make them appear to be rowing.

"Mostly, my parents made me go to college because both of them didn't go to college", Olivia told Sang.

In correspondence obtained by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, Giannulli at one point tells Singer, the mastermind behind the college admissions scandal, that he wants to get his daughters "into a school other than ASU!"

Both lawsuits were filed in California.

With the college admissions scandal sweeping the nation, the resurfaced video is not a good look for Loughlin and her family, who have been at the center of the cheating allegations along with 50 others, including actress Felicity Huffman and her husband, William H. Macy. "[They] never expected their parents to be charged for any crime, let alone one related to them".

Yale, Stanford and Georgetown were among the universities targeted in the scam.

The original tip that led to uncovering the college scandal stemmed from an unrelated securities fraud probe into Morrie Tobin, a Los Angeles resident who prosecutors said engaged in "pump-and-dump" stock market schemes, a person familiar with the matter said Thursday.
