Olivia Jade's college dorm room littered with Amazon products emerges

Olivia Jade's college dorm room littered with Amazon products

Photographs of alleged admissions cheat Olivia Jade Giannulli's college dorm room kitted out in Amazon products following a lucrative partnership with the tech giant have emerged.

The 19-year-old, whose parents Lori Loughlin, 54, and Mossimo Giannulli, 55, were accused by the FBI of illegally cheating to get her an acceptance letter from the University of Southern California, is pictured relaxing in the room seemingly without a care in the world. 

Surrounded by electronics and luxury home furnishings, her room appears a far-cry from that of most students, who lack the same influencer partnerships she boasted while studying. 

The series of photographs, taken in an Amazon sponsored shoot with Teen Vogue, advertised its Off To College range, aimed at selling products to students and followers of the star.

Alexa, get me into college: Photos from the shoot show an array of expensive products which can be bought from Amazon. These include a $75 Amazon Echo and dozens of pricey make-up accessories including brushes and a leather-bound storage box with gold detailing

Featured in the shoot are is an extensive array of pricey makeup brushes, mirrors, an Amazon Echo electronic device costing more than $75, lighting equipment and more - all apparently available on Amazon. 

Discussing her room in Teen Vogue, she explained: 'I found pretty much everything for my dorm on Amazon's college store—it was easy to find it all in one place and there were so many options to choose from. 

'I was also able to use my Amazon Prime membership and received all the items in two-days with free shipping. So the best part was that it was already waiting at my dorm for me when I got there.'

And, in a bid to really hammer the message home, she praised Amazon again, adding:  It's a no brainer—it has so many perks if you are a college student... students get exclusive deals and discounts on textbooks for class. Plus you can sign up and try it for six months—that's more than a semester!'

Despite multiple lucrative sponsorship deals, many companies have dropped her in the wake of the scandal. 

Sephora and TRESemmé both cut ties, while she has also reportedly put the brakes on her college career.

Overnight she has gone from a college student making upwards of seven figures a year to an unemployed drop out.

Loughlin and Giannulli 'agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team - despite the fact that they did not participate in crew - thereby facilitating their admission to USC,' according to documents. 

The couple emailed Rick Singer in 2016 about their daughters' college prospects, stating that they wanted to do the necessary work to see that the girls got into USC as opposed to ASU.

Emails obtained by investigators revealed that it was soon decided that bribes would be paid to have the girls recruited as crew coxswains.

A short time after that, photos were taken of older daughter Isabella on an ergometer. 

Dr. Donna Heinel, the senior associate athletic director at USC, presented Isabella as a potential athletic recruit a month later and she was approved for conditional admission.

It was then asked that a check be sent to Heinle for $50,000 from Giannulli, who a short time later asked if he could mention the story to the athletic director at USC when the two men were at Augusta, likely playing at the famed golf club.

Singer stated that this was not a good idea because when he discussed the possibility of Isabella's admission with him a year ago he thought the family 'would be good for a million plus.'

Isabella received her admission letter the following March, which was followed by another note requesting a donation of $200,000 to Key Worldwide Foundation. 

After the amount was wired to the organization, a note was returned that stated no good or services had been exchanged for the money, which according to the documents is false.

This same exact process was then repeated with the young daughter, Olivia, it is claimed.

Problems arose however when Olivia's guidance counselor became curious as to how she managed to receive admission based on her involvement in crew since she did not row. 

Drama: There was a very heated and public altercation between Giannulli and the counselor, which elicited an email from Dr Heinel (above)

At the same time, Loughlin complained that her daughter was having difficulty filling out her other college applications, prompting Singer to ask an employee to take care of that task. 

This was done so as not to draw attention to the fact that it was already confirmed that she had received conditional admission to the school. 

Then, at some point, there was a very heated and public altercation between Giannulli and the counselor, which elicited an email from Dr Heinel asking that this not happen in the future so as to avoid detection.

This all began to fall apart in October 2018 when the IRS audited Key Worldwide and began to look into donations made by parents whose children were then admitted to USC. 

The two were told by Singer to say they had given the money to help 'underserved kids.'

A rising country music star has died in an alleged accidental shooting with a gun that was being used as a music video prop. 

Justin Carter was 35 years old when he was killed at his apartment in Houston, Texas, on Sunday. Very few details about his death have been revealed. 

The singer had recently signed a deal with Triple Threat Management.

'Justin had a potential, in our eyes and a lot of people's eyes, to be the next Garth Brooks,' company spokesman Mark Atherton told ABC 13

Atherton said the gun used in the accidental shooting was the same one that was slated to be used for a music video shoot.

Rising country music star Justin Carter was killed in an accidental shooting at his apartment in Houston, Texas, on Sunday. The singer was 35 years old

Very few details about Carter's death have been released, but one source said that he was killed by a gun that was going to be used in an upcoming music video shoot 

Loved ones said Carter spent a lot of time recording music at Enclave Recording Studios in northeast Houston and was finishing up his new solo album when he died. 

He had released at least six songs since late 2018, including hits Wouldn't Know and RUN. 

Triple Threat Management intends to release the rest of his music, with the proceeds going to his family, including his young daughter.  

Carter's mother, Cindy McClellan, told ABC 13: 'His music was his world. He was always there for everybody.'  

The family has asked Veterans Affairs to cover expenses for the former service member's funeral, a post on his Facebook page says. 

Funding approval could take several weeks so relatives have asked for donations to be sent to beehere04@gmail.com.

According to his website, Carter 'fully committed' to having a career in country music last year and had written, produced and recorded more than 30 songs in the span of six months. 

He was scheduled to perform at three shows in 2019. 

'Justin is a Texas born and Texas raised country boy to his core,' his website says. 'His passion and drive stem from being influenced by some of the greats since he was just a child. 

'He grew up listening to Waylon, Hank, George and Jones. Some of his favorites are Clay Walker, Garth Brooks and George Strait. 

'Justin's passion is derived from the sound of old country, and he clings to that feeling he gets when he hears it and tries to push that into his music. 

'Times are changing and so are the generations taste in music, but Justin tries to keep a happy medium between both old and new to satisfy everyone.'

Wendy Williams' husband Kevin Hunter said that the family is 'dealing with' the talk show host's residency at a sober house to battle addiction issues - amid a new report indicating that he's still linked to a massage therapist 14 years his junior.

The 54-year-old talk show host 'is doing well,' Hunter, 47, told Entertainment Tonight of his wife of 22 years on Thursday, two days after Wendy revealed on her program, The Wendy Williams Show, that she's been living at a sober house to stave off feelings of addiction.

'We're doing well as a family,' Hunter said, adding they're 'moving forward with working on her sobriety and doing the work to help others, not just ourselves,' likely alluding to the 888-5HUNTER hotline the couple set up to those struggling with addiction. 

The latest: Wendy Williams' husband Kevin Hunter, 47, said that the family is 'dealing with' the talk show host's residency at a sober house to battle addiction issues. He was snapped with the TV host, 54, last summer in NYC 

'Anybody that has to deal with this knows this a family process,' said Hunter, who remains romantically linked to a 33-year-old massage therapist named Sharina Hudson. 'And we are dealing with it and moving forward.'

Sources told DailyMailTV Wednesday that Hunter remains involved with Hudson despite the toll it continues to take on Williams, who was sidelined from her show earlier this year as she dealt with thyroid problems linked to Graves’ disease.

While Hunter 'is in love with Sharina', he's resisted her repeated overtures for him to leave Williams, citing their financial dependence on the TV star.

'The only reason he is still with Wendy,' a source told DailyMailTV, 'is because he and Sharina can't take care of themselves - they need her money. Sharina has given Kevin several ultimatums over the years and he's had to point out, "We can't afford to take care of ourselves."'

Two-timer: Hunter remains romantically linked to a 33-year-old massage therapist named Sharina Hudson, sources told DailyMailTV, as the two were pictured together in this shot 

Out and about: The couple was snapped in their native NYC in 2012

Bold: Williams on Tuesday revealed she was living at a sober house to stave off feelings of addiction 

Williams, who is also managed by Hunter, told him, 'Don't you dare humiliate me' after confirming her husband's infidelity via a private eye she hired, DailyMailTV confirmed.

The charismatic media veteran told her fans on the emotional broadcast about her daily routine as she strives to keep clean.

'After I go to the Pilates, I go to several meetings all around town in the tri-state area,' she told her studio audience. 'I am driven by my 24-hour sober coach back to the home that I live in, here in the tri-state with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family ... I know, either you are calling me crazy or the bravest woman you know. I don't care.'
