Kerry Campbell used to be a cosmetologist, so she administered the injections herself.

Kerry insisted that she is an excellent mother, and such beauty procedures had no negative impact on the psychological well-being of her daughter.

However, such an ‘investment’ in the future became a scandal: The child protective services suspected that Britney would be better off without such a mother and launched an investigation after having received numerous calls from outraged parents.
