This isn’t the first time Olivia’s name has been used to falsely promote and sell CBD oil.

In November, the actress shared a post to Instagram urging her followers not to part with their cash after a company stole her image to promote their products.

It comes after Olivia voluntarily deregistered her cancer charity, the ONJ Foundation, just two months after launching it in Australia.
