Botox To An 8 Year Old, WTF!

May 19, 2011 at 2:56 AM


LIKE other eight-year-old girls, Britney Campbell loves dancing to Lady GaGa, is fond of fashion and enjoys putting on make-up.

But Britney’s beauty regime goes way beyond playing with Mummy’s lippy.

Once every three months, Britney climbs on a beautician’s table and watches as mum Kerry prepares needles of Botox and fillers to be injected into her face.

Beautician Kerry, 34, from Birmingham, buys the substances online and injects them into her daughter’s forehead, lips and around her eyes.

The beauty-pageant obsessed single mum also takes her to have her body waxed, in a bizarre bid to stop her growing hair when she eventually hits puberty.

Kerry says these shocking and potentially dangerous treatments will guarantee Britney becomes famous as a teenager.

She says: “What I am doing for Britney now will help her become a star.

“I know one day she will be a model, actress or singer, and having these treatments now will ensure she stays looking younger and baby-faced for longer.

“I’m sure people reading this will think I am being irresponsible, but I ensure that I test the Botox and fillers I buy online on myself first.

“All I want is for Britney to have the best start in life, so it is easier for her to become a superstar.

“More mothers should do it for their daughters.”

Kerry is proud Britney is one of the youngest children in the world to have Botox injections and fillers for beauty purposes.

Despite doctors and plastic surgeons recommending Botox only be used by adults, Kerry claims Britney is in no danger.

Kerry, who also regularly administers Botox and fillers on herself, says: “I’m proud Britney is getting to have these beauty treatments at such a young age.

“I wish that I’d had the same advantages when I was younger.

“She is a lucky little girl and is going to be famous because of the benefits I am giving her so early.”

Worryingly, Britney – whose research scientist dad died four years ago aged 83 – regards the injections and waxing as part of normal life.

She demands the top-ups of Botox, complaining she can see wrinkles.

Britney says: “My friends think it’s cool I have all the treatments and they want to be like me. I check every night for wrinkles, when I see some I want more injections.

“They used to hurt, but now I don’t cry that much.

“I also want a boob and nose job soon, so that I can be a star.”

Shockingly, Kerry, who now lives in San Francisco is not alone in her quest to make her daughter wrinkle-free for life.

This behaviour is becoming a trend in the competitive world of American child beauty pageants.

Kerry says: “When Britney takes part in pageants, parents talk about how they have given their daughter an extra jab to plump her lips or lose a wrinkle.

“Everyone is doing it and talking about it.

“We are not doing anything illegal, and I don’t want my daughter being the only one who doesn’t have a bit of extra help.”

Kerry is currently preparing Britney for the competitions, as well as saving up for a £2,000 dress.

Britney is also learning the piano for the events’ performance sections.

Amazingly, in the UK and US there are no criminal laws stopping a child having these types of procedures as the industry is self-regulated.

Kerry says: “If I want Britney to be successful, I have to be realistic. She has to start as early as possible.

“I give her between 1-2ml of a saline and Botox solution per session.

“In the past 12 months she has had different parts of her face and lips injected four times. I make her frown before injecting, which helps identify a potential wrinkle. This means we can get it before it even develops.

“I know the correct amount to give her as I am a trained beautician.

“I’d rather she be perfect and have a little frozen face. Some people say her eyebrows look a little pulled already but they look striking.”

Kerry buys Botox and Restalyne over the internet, spending £150 per 3ml vial. She has a home-assembled kit of needles from the local chemist and from a diabetic friend.

Kerry says: “I also buy vials of fillers and Botox from our local “beauty dealer” – one of the mums at school.

“It’s all safe and I am not worried.Britney’s young and healthy.”

Kerry first injected Britney with Botox in May last year, as a present to celebrate her eighth birthday.

She says: “One day I had to keep her home from school as she had a slight headache, but apart from that she has had no reaction at all.

“She also has her virgin wax monthly, which gets rid of her fluffy leg hair and makes sure she wont develop pubic hair in the future.

“It will save her a fortune in waxing when she’s older.”

Little Britney says: “I feel like a supermodel and if I do ballet or go swimming I don’t have to worry about hairy legs. Although the pain makes me cry, I feel like a cool grown-up when it’s all over.” Kerry plans to get Britney’s eyebrows waxed this year.

She is also hoping to get them lightly tattooed to an arched shape and is also considering a light pink tattooed lip-liner.

She said: “All this pain and effort now will benefit Britney no end.

“When she’s a superstar earning millions, she’ll always be grateful for what I did when she was so young.”


What has the world gone into??

This story goes back in March when she revealed to the world that she gives her 8 year old daughter botox injection. SERIOUSLY?? BOTOX FOR AN 8 YEAR OLD?? Trust me, I’ve had injections in my face and it hurts like no one’s business so for an 8 year old to go through that? I heard botox is a lot more painful.. gosh..!

A kid should be a kid! This mom should be penalized for her actions! She’s absolutely delusional.. and she’s living her dream through her kid, forcing her to go through this.. omg I’m still in disbelief.. this is the most shocking thing ever and apparently it’s a normal thing, a trend in the pageant world?? At first I thought what kind of beautician or dermatologist would give an 8 year old injection but to my surprise, it was the mom herself giving it! It’s a no wonder… because a beautician would be sued for malpractice..

The worse thing of all, the kid seems clueless as to what she’s forced to go through.. she’s led to believe that she has WRINKLES and BODY HAIR? Waxing at that age?? She hasn’t even hit puberty yet.. this fucking mother has traumatized the girl by making her paranoid about getting wrinkles, and she will forever think she’s not pretty and would need surgeries to look good. Before we know it, she’ll be like Heidi Montag who had 10 surgeries in a day.. this girl is 8 but she already talk about wanting nose job and boob job? EXCUSE ME, develop some fucking boobs first before talking about getting them done!

I can’t go on anymore. All I know is that I want some serious punishment for the mom. Apparently right now she has lost custody of that kid and is now feeling the remorse and asking for forgiveness… umm NO. Gosh it pisses me off that the mom was boasting about this, like she was doing her kid a huge favor, and this is the right thing to do.. adadakljdasldakfhsdfljsdf. Motherfucker.

THE mum who injected her daughter aged eight with Botox told The Sun last night: “I cannot put into words the remorse I feel.

“I am going to seek therapy for my obsession with looks so I will no longer push my insecurities about appearance on to her.”

Kerry Campbell was talking to us after her daughter Britney was taken away by the authorities.

And as she remained separated from her last night, the single mum wailed: “I will not use Botox on her ever again.

“I honestly felt I was helping her. I regret doing it and remain committed to being a good mother and being reunited with my daughter.”

It is a far cry from her comments when we broke the original story back in March.

Then she boasted about how she injected the poisonous anti-ageing drug into little Britney’s forehead and lips in a bid to win child beauty pageants and prepare her for stardom.

The Birmingham-born part-time beautician – who also admitted giving the youngster leg and bikini waxes – caused outrage as our story made headlines around the world.

Officials from the US Child Protection Unit have now taken Britney from her San Francisco home to stay with relatives. They have banned her mum from any contact with her until an investigation is complete.

Speaking through a close family relative, Kerry, 34 – who is staying with family in LA – told The Sun: “I never wanted to harm Britney in any way and I thought I was helping her.

“What has happened is devastating and I realise now that I was wrong.”

She was injecting Botox – bought for £150 per 3ml vial over the internet – into Britney every three months.

She used needles from a chemist and a diabetic friend.

She told The Sun at the time: “What I am doing for Britney now will help her become a star.

“I know one day she will be a model, actress or singer and having these treatments now will ensure she stays looking younger and baby-faced for longer.

“I’m sure people reading this will think I am being irresponsible but I ensure that I test the Botox and fillers I buy online on myself first.

“All I want is for Britney to have the best start in life so it is easier for her to become a superstar.

“More mothers should do it for their daughters.”

The Sun Online was inundated with comments from disgusted readers.

One, Lecharde, wrote: “It’s so awful to see when parents try to follow their own childhood dreams by living vicariously through their children.”

Yoursun agreed, writing: “I feel physically sick. This woman is destroying her daughter’s childhood, and all for a chance at fame, as if it is the most important thing in the world!

“It’s such a dangerous and unnecessary risk to take.”

The story also caused huge debate on social networking sites Twitter and Facebook.

The US TV shows Good Morning America and Inside Edition last week interviewed both Kerry and Britney.

Viewers watched in horror as Kerry continued to boast about the vile beauty regime. She said: “I am proud that Britney is one of the youngest people ever to have Botox and feel I am giving her the best start in life.”

But after thousands of complaints, US officials acted on calls to their child abuse hotline.

Trent Rohrer, of the San Francisco social services department, said: “It’s pretty unusual for a mom to be injecting an eight-year-old with Botox and certainly is grounds for an investigation.”

Britney was removed from the family home, leaving Kerry remorseful about her actions.

She told a relative: “I realise now what I did was wrong. I was so consumed with making Britney a star that I didn’t realise how bad my behaviour was.

“I am not emotionally unstable or an evil mother. Britney is the light of my life and I was trying to help her.

“I can no longer bring myself to look at the comments on websites covering the story. It makes me feel like I am being beaten up.

“I want Sun readers to know that I love my daughter with all my heart. People have said so many horrible things about me, when all I wanted was the best for my child.”

Kerry claims Britney is also distraught at being taken from home by social services.

She said: “I have been in tears and I know that Britney is crying as she misses her mummy. All she wants is her old life back and for us to be together.”

Relatives of Kerry and Britney in the US say they are doing their best to protect the vulnerable young girl.

But, worryingly, one family member, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, remained supportive of her mum.

She told The Sun: “Kerry is a fantastic mother and she was simply trying to give her daughter a leg-up. Britney has shown absolutely no ill effects from the treatment and has always been a happy child.

“To say she is being abused is plain ridiculous.”

Kerry added: “I now realise that what I was doing was wrong. By concentrating on Britney’s looks I was ignoring the things that were more important, like her being a normal child.

“The entire world hates me but I will fight to get my daughter back. I have been hounded and become a hate figure, which I probably deserve.

“But I want to take this opportunity to apologise to the world for my mistake. I vow never to give her Botox again.”

I know from a mother’s point of view that she wanted the best for her kid, but she was doing it all wrong. Oh boy, was it so wrong. The best would be providing the kid with the best education, the best life, the best childhood.. but not traumatizing her like this. She has already ruined her kid and you can’t undo what she has done to her.
