They also said that the Los Angeles County Department of Child and Family Services is actively investigating Upton and is likely to turn their findings over to police.
Upton says The Sun paid her $200 and provided her the "story, instructions and a script to follow for a recorded interview."
Upton was later approached by "Good Morning America" and "Inside Edition" and offered a "large fee" to appear on camera, the declaration states.
"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 the declaration.
The woman lost custody of her child after the television appearance, however, it's reported the girl is now back with her mother under the provision that a family member stays with them.
Upton says she took her daughter to UCLA Medical Center on May 17 and a full medical exam proved the girl never "received treatments including Botox or other such injections," TMZ reported.
Sources tell TMZ that Upton was promised $10,000 to appear on GMA.
ABC released the following statement to the Huffington Post:
"We have just seen the sworn declaration on TMZ written by Sheena Upton, a.k.a. Kerry Campbell, and are vigorously investigating her most recent statement and rapidly shifting story. Good Morning America has repeatedly questioned Upton, members of her family, and other sources who again and again stood by the Botox story. Good Morning America is solely interested in getting to the truth and will share with our audience any new information that we find."
The FDA does not recommend Botox for anyone under the age of 18.
