Lori Loughlin Posts $1 Million Bail After College Entrance Scam Exposed

Hallmark Star Lori Loughlin Charged In Alleged College Admissions Scheme

Sephora has dropped its partnership with Olivia Jade Giannulli on Thursday after her mother was indicted in the sweeping college admissions bribery scandal that broke this week.

Olivia Jade, a popular YouTuber with nearly 2 million subscribers, is suddenly at the center of massive controversy, and even legal trouble, after her mother, actress Lori Loughlin, allegedly paid bribes of $500,000 to get her daughter into a prestigious college.

Loughlin, Giannulli, and Hodge are among 50 people charged with taking part in the largest such scandal in USA history, which prosecutors said steered graduating high school students into elite universities, including Yale, Georgetown, and Stanford by cheating the admissions process. "I'm just gonna be successful at YouTube and not have to worry about school", she said in the video.

The fallout was swift Tuesday as several college coaches and one administrator were either fired or placed on administrative leave.

While Giannulli and her sister are in no way responsible for their parents' mistakes (according to reports, the students involved were allegedly unaware at the time, and are not being prosecuted) it still makes the case more puzzling that Loughlin would allegedly commit fraud so her daughter could attend college - when she doesn't seem that interested in going to school.

Loughlin became famous as the wholesome Aunt Becky in the 1980s and '90s sitcom "Full House". She appeared in court for a hearing just a few hours later and a spokesperson for the United States Attorney's Office told ET the actress would be released on a $250,000 bond.

FBI Special Agent Joseph Bonavolonta said the parents spent anywhere from $200,000 to $6.5 million to guarantee admissions for their children. Loughlin also stars in Hallmark's ongoing "Garage Sale Mysteries" movies and the series "When Calls the Heart".

Two college students have filed a lawsuit against the University of Southern California, Yale University and other colleges where prosecutors say parents paid bribes to ensure their children's admission. Her husband, Giannulli has been charged with the same offense.

Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Laura Eimiller confirmed that Loughlin was arrested in Los Angeles on Wednesday morning and that she will appear in court this afternoon. The line had been in circulation since late a year ago, according to reports.

Loughlin and Giannulli were charged on Tuesday, as well as more than 40 other people.

Munn noted the irony in the situation, pointing out that the parents who forked out millions in bribes to get their children into top colleges are now finding out "that their kids only have dreams of being an influencer".

Big names such as actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin headline the list of some 50 people charged in documents released Tuesday that describe a scheme to cheat the admissions process at eight sought-after schools. Under the terms of her bond, Huffman also surrendered her passport. Mossimo was one of Target's earliest - and buzziest designer deals that brought fashion to the masses.

The next court date for both Huffman and Giannulli is in Boston on March 29 at 2:30 p.m. local time.
