Kerry Campbell, aka Botox mom, claims nothing about her Sun story was true – including her name. Sheena Upton alleges the Sun tabloid offered her $200 to pose as Kerry Campbell and claim she gave her 8-year-old daughter Botox injections to help her in beauty pageants.
In a sworn declaration obtained by TMZ, Upton says the Sun provided her with “the story, instructions and a script to follow for a recorded interview.”
“I have never given my daughter Botox, nor allowed her to get any type of waxing, nor is she a beauty pageant contestant,” she says.
After the initial Sun story, Upton says she was paid “large sums” for interviews on Good Morning America and Inside Edition. Child Protective Services removed Upton’s daughter from her care and placed the child with relatives shortly after the interviews aired. Upton is currently under investigation.
Upton claims she took her daughter to UCLA Medical Center for a doctor to prove she was never injected with Botox. "After my daughter received a full medical exam, the results indicated that she has not ever received treatments including Botox or other such injections,” Upton alleges.
Both ABC and Inside Edition have responded to Upton’s claims. "On May 13, Inside Edition aired an interview in which we repeatedly challenged a mother on the safety and the sanity of her claims that she injected her 8-year-old daughter with Botox. Inside Edition is now investigating the published report that she fabricated the story,” a rep for the show said in a statement.
"We have just seen the sworn declaration on TMZ written by Sheen Upton, aka Kerry Campbell, and are vigorously investigating her most recent statement and rapidly shifting story," an ABC News rep said. "Good Morning America has repeatedly questioned Upton, members of her family and other sources who again and again stood by the Botox story. [GMA] is solely interested in getting to the truth and will share with our audience any new information that we find."
