Was 'Botox Mom' Paid to Lie?

Now we hear that it may have all been nothing more than a stunt. TMZ reports that it has received a sworn statement made by Sheena Upton, claiming that a British tabloid, 'The Sun,' paid her $200 to pretend to be Kerry Campbell for the story 'I Give My 8-Year-Old Daughter Botox' that ran in March.

"I was provided with the story, instructions and a script to follow for a recorded interview," TMZ quotes Upton as stating.

According to the website, Upton also says 'Good Morning America' and 'Inside Edition' approached her after 'The Sun's report, and says she was offered "a large fee" to tell her story on air.

"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," she says in the statement, according to TMZ.

After the 'GMA' story, officials from the San Francisco Human Services Agency reportedly removed the girl from her mother's custody, but according to TMZ she has been returned home after a medical exam showed the youngster never had Botox.

According to TMZ, an ABC News spokesman says the network is looking into the statement.

"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," the site reports. "'Good Morning America' has repeatedly questioned Upton, members of her family, and other sources who again and again stood by the Botox story."

I don't know, but I'd pay money for this story to go away.
