A schoolgirl who sensationally claimed she had become pregnant by a ten-year-old boy admitted that she was lying – but now claims she has been raped, according to reports in Russia.
The 13-year-old girl, only known as Darya, reportedly told the police that a 15-year-old boy forced her to have sex after he threatened to call her a “whore” on social media if she refused.
Russia’s largest daily newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda reported yesterday that the teenager was suspected of being the real father and had been arrested in the Krasnoyarsk region of Siberia.
Now the newspaper says he is suspected of rape.

The case gained worldwide attention last month after Darya had broadcast a prime-time Russian TV show with the little boy, Ivan, and said he was the only boy she’d had sex with.
The girl insisted on her story, although a doctor who examined the boy for the show said he was too sexually immature to be a father.
A source close to the family told the newspaper that she now admits she was lying, but only to prevent the shame of rape.
She claims that the boy ‘grabbed her by the hair’ and told her to ‘undress’ and that ‘it was all very fast, on the stairs in a residential building’.

Darya has become an Instagram celebrity in Russia with her ‘Pregnant on 13’ postings.
Since the TV program last month, however, she has given the new account to investigators and doctors.
But the source said, “As for the girl who is an Instagram star – it’s a simple protection.
“She’s so embarrassed now and it helps her survive what happened to her.”
The pregnant girl, who recently turned 14, and her parents, along with the teenager and his parents, have been interviewed by Russian detectives, it is understood.
The Russian investigation committee is expected to make an announcement about the case.
Lawyer Anton Kolosov warned that there was a high legal threshold for demonstrating rape.
The age of consent in Russia is 16.

Dr. Evgeny Grekov, an expert in urology and andrology, researched Ivan for the show called “Father at 10!”
He said: “We have re-checked the laboratory results three times so that there can be no errors.”
The medic said on camera: “There cannot be sperm.
“He’s just a kid.”
He had hardly begun “adrenarche” – the early stage of sexual maturation, Dr. added. Grekov ready.
He said: “There is not even a testosterone. And to add, he still has childish sexual organs. Puberty has not started. So we have many questions. “
A male neighbor in Zheleznogorsk, a city with nuclear production, said: ‘Obviously someone else did this. They just want to hang it on the boy now. “
The ten-year-old boy was asked if someone else’s child could be. He answered: “This is not possible.”
The boy of the boy Galina was convinced that he was telling the truth.
“I believe my son. That he is the father. I understand that he himself may not realize what happened. “
Ivan’s mother Galina, 28, also appeared in the controversial Russian TV program
Ivan said that “Darya has never been with another man and that he is the father of her baby”
Darya’s ultrasound. She told Russian TV: “I saw my baby during an echo. It was so small and cute. Now I am ready to give birth ‘
Mother Elena of the girl – reportedly terminated with cancer – had said about the pregnancy that she now had a “reason to live.”
At first she thought her daughter had undergone food poisoning before she realized she was carrying a child, she said.
Darya told viewers during last month’s TV show that it was Ivan’s idea to have sex.
She said: “But I didn’t mind.
“He closed the door and left the key in the lock so his mother couldn’t open the door.
“It was a bit scary that it would be painful.
“It was just a little – and then everything was normal.
“It was a bit embarrassing, we just hid under the blanket.
“I didn’t think he could do such things at the age of 10 … I thought nothing would happen.”

Psychologist Denis Davydov said when Darya was questioned if she had someone else, she gave a “sharp rejection.”
“This gives me the right to say she had no contact with other boys or men, she only had Vanya as a partner,” he claimed.
Ivan said that “Darya has never been with another man and that he is the father of her baby.”
The children say they became a target for bullying in Zheleznogorsk after their story became known.
According to the children, they met a year ago and fell in love at first sight.
Darya, who is two months pregnant, said during the On Air show: “A friend of mine introduced us and two days later we started dating.
“Ivan said he was in love with me. We have tried to spend as much time as possible together. We love to walk the streets with hands and kisses.
According to the girl, who is planning to keep the child, she and her boyfriend look after each other and set their social media as “married.”
The boy – who gave her roses when they started dating – was asked by the famous Russian presenter Andrey Malakhov when he realized that “when you kissed Dasha, and so forth, this could lead to such consequences?”
Shortly after the start of their sex life, Darya said she felt sick and began to suffer from constant nausea and vomiting
