Actress Kate Hudson, who owns the Fabletics brand, has cut ties with YouTube personality Myka Stauffer, who's been under fire for "rehoming" Huxley -- the child she had adopted with her husband James -- due to Huxley's "medical needs."

According to People, Hudson confirmed that Stauffer had been "terminated" by Fabletics, as the story around the woman's decision to re-home her adopted son began to gain notoriety.

According to Fox News, Mattel, Barbie, and Suave have also stopped working with Stauffer, and People says Danimals, Chili's, Playtex Baby and Big Lots have also cut ties. Danimals said it was "very sad to hear about this difficult situation."

In a comment, Suave said they didn't have much involvement with her in the first place: "We last partnered with Myka in Fall 2019 as a limited engagement."

Myka and James Stauffer have a full family, but recently gave up their adopted child.

The news about Myka Stauffer "rehoming" Huxley went viral after a story in Huffington Post described how Stauffer allegedly sent him to stay with another family because he has autism and sensory processing disorder.

According to People, Myka and James Stauffer had adopted Huxley in 2017. The couple reaffirmed that they loved Huxley, but felt they had to make this decision.

"There's not an ounce of our body that doesn't love Huxley with all of our being. There wasn't a minute that I didn't try our hardest and I think what Jim is trying to say is that after multiple assessments, after multiple evaluations, numerous medical professionals have felt that he needed a different fit and that his medical needs, he needed more."

Stauffer recently posted a video she called "My 6 a.m. morning routine."

In a recent video about their decision, James Stauffer said there were other challenges Huxley had that they didn't originally know about, and that led to their decision to place him in another home.

"Once Huxley came home, there was a lot more special needs that we weren't aware of, and that we were not told," James said, and continued:

"For us, it's been really hard hearing from the medical professionals, a lot of their feedback, and things that have been upsetting. We've never wanted to be in this position. And we've been trying to get his needs met and help him out as much as possible ... we truly love him."

Stauffer recently penned a message explaining her frustrations with the amount of care her son Huxley needs.

"The last couple days have been hard I don’t want to sugar coat anything. We have had a lot of melt downs, and lots of behaviors that have had us on our knees begging god for guidance!

On social medial and Youtube we rarely show the behaviors or the hard stuff, because we try our best to respect our sons privacy and dignity. We have hard days, lots of them. I wish autism and adoption trauma had a manual to direct you through it all.💙🧩#autism #momstruggles #everydayisanewday"
