Was The 8-Year-Old Botox Girl Story A Hoax?

ABC News

From the “what’s going on department,” here’s a Botox Girl update.

Last week I posted the story of the 8-year-old girl supposedly given Botox injections by her mother.

‘Good Morning America’ had originally reported it and outraged Americans when it aired a segment in which a woman named Kerry Campbell admitted to injecting her 8-year old daughter with Botox so she would do better in child beauty contests.

Now, TMZ is reporting that the ‘Botox Mom’ — whose real name is Sheena Upton — made the whole thing up.

According to a sworn declaration by Upton, the British tabloid The Sun approached her and offered her $200 to play the role of Kerry Campbell, a women who injects her eight-year-old daughter with Botox. (Upton agreed.)

It was the article published in the Sun that got the attention of ‘Good Morning America.’ In Upton’s revised version of the events, ‘GMA’ then booked Campbell on the show, not knowing she was just a character that Upton was playing.

The Sun is standing by the veracity of its initial story, and insists that Upton did inject her daughter with Botox.

A spokesperson for Good Morning America said this to Mediate:

“We have just seen the sworn declaration on TMZ written by Sheena Upton, a.k.a. Kerry Campbell, and are vigorously investigating her most recent statement and rapidly shifting story.”

Read on to see the ‘Good Morning America’ report that lead to this odd mess.
