The Sun: Botox Mom Is Lying!!!

5/19/2011 10:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

U.K. newspaper The Sun is ADAMANTLY denying it scripted a fake Botox Mom story for Sheena Upton aka Kerry Campbell -- and claims they only published the story after a reporter WATCHED the woman inject her daughter.

Kerry Campbell Botox

A rep for The Sun tells TMZ ... the paper "strongly denies any suggestion it solicited or knowingly published a false story regarding Kerry Campbell and her daughter."

We broke the story ... Upton gave a sworn declaration claiming The Sun approached her and paid her $200 to "play the role of Kerry Campbell" -- a mother who injected her 8-year-old daughter with Botox for beauty pageants.

But The Sun says it didn't even break the story -- claiming they received it from a "reputable UK news agency" -- and the reporter from the agency "watched Ms. Campbell administering what appeared to be Botox to her daughter and provided compelling photographs."

The Sun says it is considering legal action.

Charlie Sheen's Watch    

First - She confirmed she had her tested at UCLA and no traces of botox. She wins. Still a failed mom though.

Different Rules Apply    

She is back peddling saying it was made up so she won't lose her daughter and face criminal child abuse charges.

I hope The Sun does go after this woman for lying. She's in serious need of help, maybe the only way to get it is to have her charged and go to court.

Someone earlier commented that the mother may be suffering from Munchausen syndrome. I'm starting to wonder that myself.

Perhaps if she stopped spending a fourtune on pagents she wouldnt need the money so bad to make a fool, (lying or otherwise)out of herself and her child.

This still makes her a crap mother.

So $200 was all it took for her to admit she's a bad mother? Wow.

None of this story has been verified yet, not the UCLA botox testing, not the Sun's story, not even sure what this woman's real name is. So, seriously, it's just in limbo. Nobody has "won" or "lost" yet,(accept that little girl).
