The 19-year-old, who was allegedly accepted into USC under false pretenses thanks to a hefty bribe on the part of her mom and fashion designer dad, Mossimo Giannulli, is an influencer that has regularly collaborated with fashion and beauty brands, sharing sponsored content with her 1.3 million Instagram followers and nearly 2 million YouTube channel subscribers. HP has officially cut ties with the famous mother and daughter, Variety reports, though the future of Jade's partnerships with Amazon, Dolce & Gabbana, Lulus, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Smashbox Beauty Cosmetics, Boohoo, TRESemmé and more remain uncertain.
Several months later, in March 2017, USC mailed the oldest daughter her formal acceptance letter, the complaint states. The Justice Department alleged that her parents (who have both been arrested) paid $500,000 to get her and her sister Isabella Giannulli, 20, into USC, by allegedly passing them off as crew athletes. 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.

In addition to Loughlin and Gianulli, dozens of others, including actress Felicity Huffman and Gordon Caplain, chair of NY law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher, have been accused by prosecutors of cheating on college entry exams and falsifying sporting records in order to get their children into top universities.
All University of Southern California applicants who are connected to the alleged admissions cheating scheme will be denied admission, university spokesman Gary Polakovic said Wednesday. "We will make informed, appropriate decisions once those reviews have been completed. Some of these individuals may have been minors at the time of their application process", he said.

A representative for the Hallmark Channel previously had "no comment" on the situation, according to Yahoo News. Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, surrendered to federal authorities on Wednesday. About 50 people were charged in connection with the scheme.
In the largest known college admissions scandal in US history, federal prosecutors on Tuesday said a California company made about $25 million by charging parents to secure spots for their children at elite schools, including Georgetown, Stanford and Yale, by cheating the admissions process.
