The disturbing puzzle of whether Kerry Campbell did or didn’t inject her 8-year-old daughter with Botox continues, as does the mystery of whether the woman is actually called Kerry Campbell or Sheena Upton! It seems these wouldn’t be the first lies the woman has made up in search of fame –her earlier deceptions landing her in jail. But now the British reporter who first broke the story is adamant about what she saw.
Alley Einstein, the British reporter who first reported on the Botox mom in March 2011, says she definitely witnessed Sheena Upton inject her daughter with something from a bottle labeled as Botox. Einsten admits, though, it could have been anything in the bottle.
“She’s just a ridiculous human being.”
Reported earlier, child protection officials in Los Angeles have doubted the truth of Upton’s Botox claims since Upton appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
On the show, “Kerry Campbell,” (a.k.a. Upton) claimed she routinely injected 8-year-old daughter Britney with Botox to give the little girl the edge in child beauty pageants.
Paranoid that she will lose custody of Britney and her younger sister, Upton yesterday denied she had ever injected her daughter with Botox and said she made the whole thing up for publicity. Unfortunately for her, that doesn’t let her off the hook with CPS. They are understandably worried about a mother using her child to gain fame.
Now, Einstein now says Upton has been trying to extort money from her for weeks, threatening to let “all hell break loose.” Upton had already been paid $800 for her story. The interview took place in a West Hollywood hotel after Einstein heard about the story through a relative of Upton that Einstein interviewed for a previous article.
“I told her she’d be one of the world’s most hated women when my article would appear,” Einstein said. “She said: ‘That’s fine! I’d be happy if that occurs!’”
The woman has lied before. Way before she allegedly lied about injecting her 8-year-old daughter with Botox, Sheena Upton served 14 days in jail for driving violations. In two of the incidents, she lied to cops, according to records.
The incidents date back as far as May 2003, when she was charged with giving false information to a police officer during a traffic stop. After a guilty plea a Los Angeles Superior Court sentenced her to 4 days in jail and fined her $20 in court costs. She didn’t pay.
In 2004, Upton was charged with driving with a suspended license. She didn’t turn up to court but later entered a guilty plea again. She got off with simply being ordered not to drive without a license. But on May 27, 2005, she was caught violating the judge’s order. Again she lied to police officers. She got 10 days in jail, and a $40-fine. Upton didn’t pay for that fine either, until authorities sent a collection agency after her.
So, Upton/Campbell doesn’t have a very intimate relationship with the truth. What do you believe now?
