Olivia and Isabella have not been charged by authorities, but parents Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

TMZ reported on Thursday that actress Lori Loughlin's daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Giannulli, have chose to leave USC amid accusations that their parents illegally used bribes to help them gain entrance into the college.

The six-color Olivia Jade x Sephora Collection Bronze & Illuminate Palette, which costs $28, is not available on Sephora's website any longer, according to NBC. It's unclear whether or not she will be expelled from the school. CNN also is seeking comment from the actresses' representatives. Nearly instantly after the announcement, a video showing Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli, an Instagram and YouTube influencer, complaining about her college classes drew outrage. They were booked and released on bail set at $1 million each for allegedly paying a college consultant company $500,000 to ensure their two daughters would be accepted to the University of Southern California as athletic recruits.

Meanwhile, in other related news, Loughlin was recently released on $1 million bond.

The couple are among 50 people charged on Tuesday with taking part in a scam that steered graduating high school students into elite universities, including Yale, Georgetown and Stanford, by cheating the admissions process.

Some of Jade's online videos and photos were paid partnerships with Amazon.com Inc and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise Co.

An attorney representing her parents didn't immediately reply to a request for comment. The accused mastermind, William Singer, pleaded guilty to racketeering charges.

Sounds like even if Olivia Jade had no involvement in her parents' alleged scheme, her partners may not want to be associated with the negative attention the scandal is drawing.

Adding, USC will "conduct a case-by-case review" for current students and graduates who may be connected to the scheme and they "will make informed, appropriate decisions once those reviews have been completed".

It also appears Olivia may have more at stake than just her education.

Olivia Jade apparently capitalized on her experience at USC with sponsored posts for various brands. You could count on seeing her in Christmas movies, too. USA Today reported that she is now a freshman at the University of Southern California. Andrew Lelling, the United States attorney for MA stated that the people arrested include nine coaches, two examination administrators, one exam proctor, one college administrator and 33 parents.

She posted a video to her YouTube channel on the day she was due to start college past year, saying: 'I don't know how much of school I'm gonna attend.
