Love is love.
Paris Saint Germain star Kylian Mbappe is rumored to be dating Ines Rau, who became the first transgender model to appear on the Playboy cover.
Italian news outlet Corriere dello Sports dropped a bombshell that Mbappe was seen at the Cannes Film Festival with Rau and was later pictured carrying Rau on a luxury yacht.
Ines reportedly had sex reassignment surgery at the age of 16 and has had a diverse career of modeling, being a dancer, and DeeJaying in Spain.
Ines was also Playboy magazine’s ‘Playmate of the month’ for their November issue, making her the first openly transgender woman to be featured that way.
Rau made her first appearance in Playboy back in 2014, and in 2017, became the first transgender model to star on the cover. Despite the backlash, Cooper Hefner, the son of the Playboy founder Hugh Hefner said: “We should collectively be fighting for a more open world, not one that promotes hatred and a lack of acceptance.”
Rau said in a previous interview for Playboy, via ETOnline: “I lived a long time without saying I was transgender.
“I dated a lot and almost forgot. I was scared of never finding a boyfriend and being seen as weird. Then I was like, ‘You know, you should just be who you are. It’s a salvation to speak the truth about yourself, whether it’s your gender, sexuality, whatever.
“The people who reject you aren’t worth it. It’s not about being loved by others; it’s about loving yourself.’”
She added: “When I was doing this shoot, I was thinking of all those hard days in my childhood.
“And now everything happening gives me so much joy and happiness. I thought, ‘Am I really going to be a Playmate — me?’ It’s the most beautiful compliment I’ve ever received. It’s like getting a giant bouquet of roses.”
