Ines Rau is the rumored transgender girlfriend of France’s soccer player Kylian Mbappe. She is well-known for making history when she became the first transgender Playmate. She was Playmate of the month in November 2017. Although she had appeared earlier for the magazine in a May 2014 issue. Becoming Playmate of the month was a first.
She was in disbelief when she was selected as the Playmate. “When I was doing this shoot, I was thinking of all those hard days in my childhood,” she said in an interview. “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.”
A few years before this in 2013, at the age of 23, she first posed nude for a French luxury magazine called OOB. She posed nude again for Playboy in 2014.
Ines Rau celebrates nudity
Playboy announced French transgender model Rau’s appearance as Playmate on social media, writing:
“Nudity shouldn’t be taboo. Nudity means a lot to me, since I went through a transition to get where I want to be. Nudity is a celebration of the human being without all the excess. It’s not about sexuality but the beauty of the human body, whether male or female.”

Kylian Mbappe gets constantly trolled for allegedly dating Ines Rau
Since her claim to fame in 2017, Ines Rau has worked for various fashion designers. However, nothing made her catch the public eye. Until recently, when she roared into the headlines in May 2022. Photos of herself and Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe getting cozy on a beach and appearing at the Cannes Film Festival together surfaced. According to rumors, Rau and Kylian are dating.
Mbappe was the star performer for France in the recently concluded FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. He scored a hat-trick in the final against Argentina and also won the Golden Boot. He was instrumental in the runners-up finish pulled off by his nation. However, rumors about his relationships are still floating around the internet. He has also been rumored to be dating Rose Bertram, a Belgian model.

Some of the fans criticized the people who are trolling Mbappe.
The public response to the rumor that football star Kylian Mbappe is dating Ines Rau, a transgender woman, is disheartening. There’s really no hope for humanity.
