A new press report revealed that the French national team and Paris Saint-Germain star, Kylian Mbappe, may be linked to a transgender model named Ines Rao.
The Italian website, Corriere dello Sport, confirmed that Kylian Mbappe, 22, and the model, Ines Rao, of Algerian origin, have been having an affair for months, when they were first spotted last May, at the Cannes Film Festival.
Where many sites circulated the news of the relationship between Mbappe and Rao, and pictures of the duo spread widely on social media platforms.
Ines Rao was born in 1990 in the French capital, Paris, from a family of Algerian descent. She was born a male and underwent a sex reassignment surgery at the age of 16, after being inspired by the life story of the English model Caroline Cozy. After that, she lived as a woman but did not reveal her transgender identity until the age of 24.
Ines Rao gained fame by becoming the first model to appear on the cover of the famous “Playboy” magazine.
It is worth noting that Mbappe’s mother is also of Algerian descent, Fayza Al-Amari, born in 1974, and a former French handball player, who played in the French First Handball League with AS Bondi from the late nineties to the early 2000s, and she was playing in the wing center right hand.
