Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli reportedly withdraw from the University of Southern California following their parents' arrests for allegedly paying the girls' way into the school.

AceShowbiz - Lori Loughlin's Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli have reportedly decided their fate on their study after their parents got arrested over their alleged involvement in the college admission scam. The two girls are said to have withdrawn from University of Southern California before the university takes any action.

According to TMZ, Olivia, 19, and Isabella, 20, made the decision out of fear of bullying. Sources say the family thinks that if the girls went back to USC, they would be "viciously bullied." Their parents Lori and Mossimo Giannulli reportedly fully support their decision.

Words are the two girls never really wanted to go to USC. The sources say Olivia and Isabella "liked the concept of school principally because of partying, and had their sights set on Arizona State University."

The sources add that Olivia "is a mess, despondent and feeling like it's the end of the world" after the bribery scheme was exposed. She and her sister Isabella will "lay low" now and won't try to enroll in another school, at least not in the foreseeable future.

The scandal has also affected Olivia's endeavor as a YouTube personality. The girl, who has amassed nearly 2 million subscribers on her channel, has endorsed a handful of brands, including Sephora, which has cut its partnership with Olivia following the bribery scandal.

"After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately," the company said in a statement. The beauty chain has a face pressed powder palette bearing her name among its products.

Meanwhile, Radar Online reports that Olivia in particular is "furious" at her parents for the college cheating scam. According to a source, "Olivia flipped out on her parents," telling them, "You ruined my life!"

"Olivia is obviously blaming her parents and she is refusing to speak to them right now," the source continues, adding that the girl is distancing herself from her mother and father right now. "Everyone is pointing their fingers at each other and it is a really tense situation."

As reported before, Lori and her husband are accused of paying $500,000 to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as part of the school's crew team, even though neither is a rower. The "Fuller House" star has since been dropped as a staple on Hallmark Channel.

Lori was arrested along with more than 40 other individuals, including actress Felicity Huffman and Rick Singer, the ringleader of the alleged scam.
