If you haven’t already heard of Sheena Upton, she’s the mom who shocked the world when she revealed that she has been giving her daughter Botox.
This week, she has revealed even more- she was paid to lie on “Good Morning America” and “Inside Edition” about the ordeal.
A declaration was written by Upton herself and TMZ obtained it. In the declaration, she said she was approached by the British tabloid, The Sun, “To play the role of Kerry Campbell” for a story called “I Give My 8-Year-Old Daughter Botox.”
Upton said she was offered a pay-day of $200. “I was provided with the story, instructions and a script to follow for a recorded interview,” Upton said in the declaration.
The story would run in The Sun, which lead to Upton being approached for a “large fee” by ”Good Morning America” and “Inside Edition.” From there, she would appear on both of those shows and retell the story.
A source told TMZ that Upton was promised “$10,000” to appear on “Good Morning America.” But 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.”
“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 said in her declaration.
This declaration was written after her daughter was taken away by child welfare officials. after her appearances on “Good Morning America” and “Inside Edition.”
Upton brought her daughter to the UCLA Medical Center on May 17. “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 said in the declaration.
TMZ was told Upton’s daughter was returned by child welfare officials. There was a provision that a cousin would stay with her as well.
