A press release has sparked a deafening surprise about a possible connection between Paris Saint-Germain striker and France national football team Kylian Mbappe and transgender Playboy model Ines Rao.
According to the website “Corriere dello SportKylian Mbappe, 22, and Algerian-born model Ines Rao have been in a relationship for months and were first spotted together last May during the Cannes Film Festival.
Ines Rao was born in Paris in 1990 to an Algerian-born family who was born male but underwent sex reassignment surgery at the age of 16 after being inspired by the life story of transgender English model Caroline Cosey. After that, she lived as a woman, but did not reveal her transgender identity until she was 24 years old.
Ines Rao rose to fame by becoming the first model to appear on the cover of Playboy magazine.
Notably, Mbappe’s mother is also of Algerian origin, Faiza Al-Ammari, born in 1974, 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 played in the center of the right flank.
