A teenager who claimed to have sold her virginity online for £2 million has now said that the whole thing was a lie.
Alexandra Kefren allegedly sold her virginity to the highest bidder in an auction on the now infamous Cinderella Escorts website in November 2016.
The Cinderella Escorts website claims to have several virgins who are willing to auction off their first time on the site and they claim to have clients that include Hollywood actors.
During an interview on This Morning with Holly Willoughby and Phil Schofield she claimed that she wanted to raise money to stop her parents getting kicked out of their home and that she was inspired by the 1993 film Indecent Proposal, in which a billionaire attempts to buy a night with a woman for a huge sum of money.
The bidding allegedly started at £700,000 and in March 2017 it was announced that a sale had been made for £2m.
However, just over a year later Alexandra has announced that it was all a marketing stunt to promote the escorts agency.
In an interview with porn website Sugarcookie, she said: "It never happened, like, there was no bidder. I didn't sell my virginity."
"The plan was that I would kind of become famous with my modelling career, become a celebrity and all that stuff, and they will get so much publicity on their escort site,"
Kefren also claims that the attention that she has received has caused her family to become angry with her and made her life worse.
She said that she was 'promised what happened in the UK would stay in the UK' but 'it went global in like one or two hours'.
The 19-year-old says that the whole thing has 'ruined her life' after becoming a worldwide news story. She also claims to have suffered with depression and attempted to take her own life 'multiple times'.
She continued: "I thought, I'm just going to this TV show, I'm just going to tell some lies," Ms Khefren said.
"He wrote me two pages just to learn and memorise, they wanted to create a story about myself to make people feel sorry for me.
"They told me that they would not give my real name and my real country. When I got back home I tried every day to drive my parents out of the house to a restaurant or something so they could not watch the news."
As for Cinderella Escorts, Kefren claims that they are not run by a German called Jan Zakobielski, but a Greek man who uses the 'auctions' to trick women into work in Athens brothels.
Cinderella Escorts disputes these claims.
The Metro reports that the company claims that they ended their relationship with Kefren after discovering that she had a secret boyfriend. They claim the Greek man that she alleged to be the real owner of Cinderella Escorts is in fact her ex-boyfriend.
A Cinderella Escorts spokesperson said in a statement: "If Alexandra is angry with us because she lost two million after our decision, angry at herself because she was 'smart' enough to post pictures of her and her boyfriend online before she met the client.
"Just trying to make money with paid interviews, [to] try to become famous as model again or try to make her boyfriend more famous as [a] rapper.
"We don't know for sure. Maybe a mix of all that reasons.
"We cannot watch into the brains of women when they apply, but we can have a high security system to discover all fakes before they sell it."
