So who is the new girl catching the heart of the young star?

Born in 1990 to Algerian parents in Paris, France, Inès Rau started receiving transgender surgeries at age 16 but kept it intensely private. It was only when she turned 24 that her story came to light.

According to Sports Brief, Rau was notably the first transgender model featured on the cover of the famous magazine Playboy in 2014. She got this chance one more time three years later, in 2017.

However, her appearance in the magazine created controversies in the media. While some people advocate for the liberty of the LGBT community, some generated severe criticism towards the model. Amid this drama, the son of Playboy founder, Cooper Hefner wrote on his wall, backing up for her socially encouraging image:

‘We should collectively be fighting for a more open world, not one that promotes hatred and a lack of acceptance.’

Before Inès Rau, Mbappe had a solid relationship with beauty queen Alicia Aylies, a French model and also Miss France 2017. The couple was believed to have been together for a long time but managed to keep their love under the radar. Rumors about their romance only sparked when Alicia was seen cheering for the France striker at the 2018 World Cup finals. From then, people started questioning whether the two were an item due to their high frequency of staying together. However, the insiders have never confirmed this to the curious public. Alicia never published any images with Mbappe and neither did he.

The only thing we can find on the footballer’s profiles is his pictures practicing with the team or celebrating victories. Therefore, we can just guess that Mbappe and Alicia were probably dating, and their romance lasted for around 3 years. But how and when it started nor why they decided to part ways still remains a mystery.
