Olivia Jade Giannulli’s personal and professional woes seem to be getting worse by the day. After reports indicated that the YouTube personality and social media influencer lost several big-name sponsorships, there’s another report that says that her application to trademark her name on several different products was rejected due to poor punctuation.
Her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, are currently facing charges for paying bribes to the University of Southern California (USC). Loughlin and Giannulli reportedly paid up to $500,000 and even pretended to make their daughters look like athlete recruits in order for them to secure spots at the USC.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Giannulli’s trademark application for her beauty brand was not accepted due to bad punctuation. The 19-year-old wanted to trademark “Olivia Jade Beauty” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
However, the USPTO sent a letter back to her stating that her filing was in danger because of her poor punctuation. Government officials sent her a letter that read, “the applicant must correct the punctuation in the identification to clarify the individual items in the list of goods.”
Giannulli was hoping to put her name on several different beauty products that included makeup kits, concealer, primer, bronzer, mascara, and other items. The USPTO officials added, “Proper punctuation in identifications is necessary to delineate explicitly each product or service within a list and to avoid ambiguity. Commas, semicolons, and apostrophes are the only punctuation that should be used.”
Both Olivia Jade Giannulli and her sister Isabella Giannulli have reportedly dropped out of USC after the college admissions scandal made headlines. One of the reasons why they don’t want to return to school is because they are scared of all the bullying they might endure from their peers.
Giannulli has not made any public comments about the scandal, nor has she said anything that would indicate her wanting to return to school to finish her education. Before the college admissions scandal made headlines, Giannulli said in her past interviews that her parents “forced” her to go to school. She also admitted having no interest in her studies and said that the best thing about attending USC was the “game days and the parties.”
Both Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are expected to appear in a Boston courtroom on April 3rd along with fellow Hollywood actress Felicity Huffman. Both have so far made no comments about the case.
