The first on is Nutrisystems, who issued this statement: "Due to the seriousness of the allegations we are dissolving our relationship with Mr. Taylor effective immediately," the company's rep confirmed to "Extra."

Nutrisystem has already replaced Taylor's image on their website with slimmed down San Diego Padres star Matt Stairs.

Taylor has also been dropped by Title Sports drink as their spokesperson. "As of immediate effect, Title Sports Drink will no longer be using the name, fame and likeness of Lawrence Taylor in its endorsement campaign," a company rep told "Extra."

Meanwhile, Taylor's wife, Lynette, made a last-minute cancellation on a scheduled interview with Larry King on Thursday. Taylor is currently out on $75,000 bail.
