(CBS/KYTX/AP) SAN FRANCISCO - It's a story that has caused an outcry around the world - Kerry Campbell admitted on national television to injecting her eight-year-old daughter with Botox.

Now, apparently, the girl is no longer living with her.

According to ABC News' Good Morning America, she has lost custody of her child and is under investigation.

According to CBS affiliate KYTX, Campbell is a beautician from Birmingham, England, who lives in San Francisco.

She first talked publicly about using Botox on her daughter Britney in March when she told UK paper The Sun that the drug was becoming common in children's beauty pageants.

Pageant officials deny those claims.

In an interview with the paper, 8-year-old Britney is quoted saying: "My friends think it's cool I have all the treatments and they want to be like me. I check every night for wrinkles, and when I see some I want more injections."

She also told the paper she wants a breast and nose job soon so she can "be a star."

Britney also said, "The injections used to hurt, but now I don't cry much."

The shots can be painful and aren't recommended for anyone under 18 for cosmetic purposes.

A source close to the girl told ABC News that she is not living with her mother, and she is doing well.

Kerry Campbell declined to tell "Good Morning America" where she got the drug but said it was a trusted source.
