A Russian fan at the 2018 World Cup has been going viral on social media after cameras panned to her in the stands multiple times. She's since been going viral on social media for a different reason.

Natalya Nemchinova, a 28-year-old Russian supporter who had everyone talking earlier this month, was allegedly outed as being an adult film actress. She has since denied the reports.

The Sun reported that "online detectives" outed her as a pornstar.

"Online detectives quickly discovered she was an adult film actress - after zooming in on her Fan ID ahead of the Egypt match on Tuesday night.

They then discovered she has appeared in X-rated movies under such aliases as Natali Nemtchinova, Natalia Andreeva, Delilah G, Danica, Amanda, Asya and Annabell," it wrote.

She had been dubbed one of the "most beautiful" fans at the World Cup.

She has since clapped back at the tabloids, saying her label of a pornstar is incorrect.

“In fact this is a very old story. I was in a relationship with a young man five years ago,” she told reporters. “When we broke up he got back at me. He uploaded a home video to the internet and that is how it began. I never worked as a porn actress, I never sold my body for cash. I was a model for some time, but that was my hobby, not a steady job.”

She said she was shocked by all of the news.

“I was shocked by all this, I even cried, I am lucky that there are people who support me and who know who I am,” Nemchinova said.

Russia, meanwhile, has advanced to the knockout stage of the World Cup. It finished second in Group A.
