Tweens/teens lying about being pregnant

Ok first off I am not a school counselor not doi have any training in mental health.

However, after an incident at my child's school I am really wondering about something. How common is it for young girls to lie about being pregnant? I was beyond shocked to hear that a 12 year old girl would make up a fake pregnantcy and take it so far as to accuse another student whom she had never been intimate with of getting her pregnant and then telling that boy that he needed to be her boyfriend now. . She concocted a strange scenario for how this could be, which really brought home how little she understood about the science behind human reproduction, and it seemed so beyond the normal to me. So I went online and looked this up and low and behold I find that this isn't that uncommon.

Do those of you that work with tweens/teens see this in your work? Is it really not that strange?
