8 Year-Old Botox Story Is Fake!
The salacious story of an 8 year-old girl who received Botox treatments is totally fake! According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sheen Upton used the false name Kerry Campbell and took a fake picture of herself holding a syringe up to her 8 year-old daughter. But after Child Protective Services took her daughter away, Upton came clear in video statements to TMZ.com, saying she did the whole thing for money.
Unfortunately, she’s not going to get any cash; ABC News is refusing to pay the $10,000 “photo licensing fee” to a British booker for the story. “We had agreed to pay a $10,000 licensing fee to a U.K. freelancer for the pictures, but obviously in light of everything that’s happened, zero money has been sent that way,” says ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider. “We have a contract with the freelancer, which obviously stipulates that the images depict what they purport to show, that there’s no staging in any way,” he goes on. “So with all those open questions, we’re going to hold [the money] back.”
Upton says the U.K. Sun offered her $200 to make up the story. “Honestly, I don’t even know what Botox is,” Upton told TMZ. “I was scripted to do everything.”
Hold the phone! All this nonsense for $200 bucks? This whole thing is sadder than an episode of Toddlers and Tiaras.
At least the girl can move her eyebrows?
