Sheena Upton, the woman who claimed to have injected her eight-year-old daughter with Botox and then withdrew the claims, stating she was an actress paid to say those things, is still under investifation by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services. She can expect another visit this week.
Upton appeared on national TV, on “Good Morning America,” claiming to be someone called Kerry Campbell. Her claims to have injected her eight-year-old daughter with Botox, causing a national outcry. Upton dropped the bombshell that it was all something she made up for money.
Either way, the child protection authorities were not impressed and Upton, who lives in Southern California, temporarily lost custody of her two daughters to a family member. However, all four of them now live together as the DCFS continues its investigation.
“Social workers from the Los Angeles County of Department of Children and Family Services will be visiting Sheena and her two daughters this week,” an inside source has reported. “The visit was supposed to happen last week, but had to be rescheduled. Sheena has had a family member staying with her since all of this drama erupted.”
Upton could still face criminal charges, regardless of whether she actually injected her daughter with Botox. The DCFS will turn their findings over to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, wjo will then determine what counts, if any, Upton could be charged with.
“Sheena could be looking at several labor law violations or a child neglect charge. DCFS is being extremely thorough with the investigation. Officials want to make sure the girls are emotionally and physically well cared for,” the insider revealed.
So unless the visit is again rescheduled, Upton will meet with the DCFS this week.
