It was only in January that Lauren Goodger announced she had been blocked out of her own beauty brand by her partner company.
And it seems Ferne McCann has now suffered the same fate with her own tanning company, after revealing she has parted ways with the same scamming business.
The former TOWIE star, 26, took to Twitter on Friday to reveal that she would no longer be endorsing her Ferne Beauty products, after claiming that the same company who allegedly duped Lauren now owe her money, too.

Addressing the situation for her 798,000 followers, the former TOWIE star announced: 'I am not working with Ferne Beauty going forward and no longer endorse their products.'
Elaborating on the drama however, the brunette then went on to reveal that she was working with the same company Lauren Goodger had been duped by - and claimed that the business now owe her money, too.
She continued: 'They are the same company that Lauren Goodger has recently talked about and I am still waiting payment from them.'

Not letting the tough time faze her however, Ferne went on to confirm that her career in the beauty world is far from over, and that she is already working on new products for her fans.
She added: 'I will be announcing a new product that I am very excited about and look forward to revealing that to you soon.'
Before finishing her note with: 'Thanks again for all your support!'

Ferne first unveiled her beauty range, consisting of multiple different types of fake tan, back in June.
However her announcement comes just two months after Lauren revealed she had suffered at the hands of the same company, who duped her out of her own business.
The former TOWIE star, 30, embarked on a lengthy rant on her Instagram back in January, which saw her call for legal advice as she explained the reportedly deceitful behaviour of an unknown colleague to her followers.

Posting an image of the pre-typed message on her social media page, she began sadly: 'I don't want to air dirty laundry but I had a company set up years ago with my business partner, and believed I was 50/50 in this business.'
However the brunette went on to explain that her fellow entrepreneur had now blocked her out of all aspects of the company - including the profits, social media pages and vital sales figures.
She continued: 'After years of no getting a penny and being logged out the social platforms for my own brand LAURENS WAY it has now come to me asking for your help.'

The Essex native went on to ask any business who stock her products to contact her in order to work out her profit margin - as she has been told by the trickster that 'she has not sold anything for years'.
'I am now seeking legal help and need people to contact me,' she added with urgency, before admitting in shock: 'It has took a long time for me to accept this has happened to me.' (sic)
Lauren set up her beauty brand back in 2012, which began as a range of fake tans similar to the bronze hue she often rocked on TOWIE.

The bronzing sprays and mousses, which went on to be stocked in Superdrug, even bagged her a nomination at the 2015 Guild Awards Nominee & Beauty Shortlist Awards.
Expanding her business further after the whirlwind success, the reality star then went on to produce eyelashes and enhancing lip glosses - as well as a mobile pampering service for both the Essex and London areas.
However Lauren is no doubt finding the issue even more difficult to cope with than normal, as her main source of support, boyfriend Joey Morrison, is currently in jail.
