I am sure many of you would have heard about the Botox Mom story. The Botox Mom, Sheena Upton aka Kerry Campbell hit the headlines for injecting Botox for her 8-year-old daughter. Looks like the whole story is a lie spun by The Sun to make a few bucks according to the botox mom’s declaration.
TMZ has obtained a sworn declaration written by Sheena Upton, who claims she was recently approached by the British tabloid, The Sun, and asked “to play the role of Kerry Campbell” for a story called “I Give My 8-Year-Old Daughter Botox.”
Upton now confesses The Sun paid her $200 adding, “I was provided with the story, instructions and a script to follow for a recorded interview.”
After the story ran in The Sun, Upton says she was approached by “Good Morning America” and “Inside Edition” and claims she was offered “a large fee” to appear on camera. She went on both shows and re-told her story.
After the interview, child welfare officials took Upton’s daughter away.
Upton now admits in her declaration, “The truth is I have never given my daughter Botox, nor allowed her to get any type of waxing, nor is she a beauty pageant contestant.”
Upton says professionals agree with her declaration, because on May 17, she took her daughter to the UCLA Medical Center and says, “After my daughter received a full medical exam, the results indicated that she has not ever received treatments including Botox or other such injections.”
We’re told the UCLA reports were forwarded to child welfare officials, who then returned Upton’s daughter to her, with the provison that a cousin would stay with her and the child for the time being.
As for “Good Morning America” — sources connected with Upton claim she was promised $10,000 to appear. We do not know how much she was offered for “Inside Edition.”
As for the declaration — signed under penalty of perjury — we’re told Upton wrote it so her lawyer can secure full rights to custody of her daughter.
An ABC News insider tells TMZ, “There is no truth to the story about compensation, but they did pay a broker no more than $10,000 to license photos.”
Wow, how sick can people get? Looks like money always does its job well in bringing the worst out of people. When people say The Sun did something like this, it doesn’t really surprise me. The Sun is a tabloid that has a reputation of such crap.The Sun continues to decline it made up the story.
