Mbappe is neither gay nor transgender, although he has never come out in the past to make any statement about his sexuality. The French star footballer is not openly dating anyone at the moment, but he has been linked to several women in the past, including Inès Rau, who is transgender, and Rose Bertram.
Born on December 20, 1998, and now 25 years old, Kylian Mbappe rose to fame as a footballer for the French national team and Paris Saint-Germain. Although where he has always gotten the loudest audience is on the field of play, his love life has also been a subject of speculation because of his alleged past relationship with a trans. Here is all to know about his love life and sexuality.
Is Kylian Mbappe Gay?
For now, there is nothing to suggest that Kylian Mbappe is gay. There have been many questions as regards his sexuality, but he has never come out to clear the air, even though the most popular speculations suggest that he is straight.
One of the main reasons why his sexuality has been questioned is because of his alleged relationship with Ines, which began in 2022 and ended in the same year. Apart from Ines, who now identifies as a woman, the soccer star has never been linked to any man in the past. This makes it difficult for many to believe that he is gay.
The only other time that his sexuality has become a topic of discussion was during the 2023 FIFA World Cup semi-finals when Mbappe gave Moroccan player Achraf Hakimi a bear hug. This got people to start talking and asking if there was something more between them. However, it turned out that the two are only close friends who have always maintained a strong bromance, even at club level.
With that said, even though the questions regarding his sexual orientation have continued to attract so much attention, Mbappe has never come out to clear the air and bury the rumors for good.
Is Mbappe Transgender?
No, Kylian Mbappe is not transgender. The footballer was born a man, and he has always identified with his gender. The footballer was born in 1998 to his parents, Fayza Lamari and Wilfried Mbappé. He was raised in a small family together with his siblings Ethan Mbappé and Jirès Kembo Ekoko. All through his childhood, there has never been any report of him having a gender crisis at any point.
In the same way that he is not trans, he is not also gender fluid, which means that he is only identified by male pronouns: he, his, and him. As an athlete, he plays in male sports, where he is excelling.
The closest he has ever been linked to transgender is when it was alleged that he was in a relationship with the trans model, Ines. Ines Rau, who is considered to be one of the most popular trans in the world, was born a man, but even before the age of 18, she decided that she wanted to be a woman, thus leading to a gender-affirming surgery. She has come to be known for her career as a model and also the first openly transgender Playboy Playmate of the Month.
Rumors started going around in 2022 when she was sighted with Kylian Mbappe, having a cozy time out. They were also following each other on Instagram, but there were no details on how they met and began dating. However, the claimed relationship did not last a long time before they went their separate ways and unfollowed each other on the social media platform.
Since then, he has not been linked to any other trans, nor has he said anything more about his claimed relationship with Ines.
Who is Mbappe Dating?
At the moment, there is no indication that Kylian Mbappe is dating anyone. The footballer is also not married and has never walked down the aisle in the past.
Inasmuch as the popular belief right now is that he is either single or has managed to keep his relationship and love life, what is known is that he has dated several other women in the past.
One of the first women he was linked to in the past is Camille Marie Kelly Gottlieb, who is an influencer and the daughter of Princess Stéphanie of Monaco. The 25 year-old met with Mbappe when he was playing for AS Monaco, and in 2017, they were rumored to have started dating. They were not together for long before it all came to an end.
The next woman that he is linked to is French singer and model Alicia Aylies. The beauty queen who was crowned Miss France in 2017 and also the representative of the country at the Miss Universe 2017, was linked to Mbappe in 2018. This relationship did not last long before it ended.
It was after this relationship that Mbappe allegedly dated Ines for some time, and then he moved on to model Stella Maxwell, also in 2022. They were not together for a long time before they parted ways, and then he was said to have moved to Rose Bertram. This relationship was not confirmed before it was rumored to have ended in 2023.
Are Alicia Aylies and Mbappe Together?
No, Alicia Aylies and Mbappe are no longer together. The manner in which they met is unclear, but it is likely in Paris, where they both lived and worked in 2018. As indicated, it was also in the same year that they began dating. Alicia showed how serious she was by coming to watch her then-boyfriend play.
Alicia Aylies was also at the 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia, where the French national team won the tournament and Mbappe was named the Best young player of the competition. She was present in all the games, wearing Mbappe’s jersey.
In spite of all these, the former lovers managed to keep a better part of their relationship very private, so much so that even though the relationship did not survive to 2019, many of their fans do not know they were no longer together.
The exact reason why they parted ways has never been shared by either of them, but Mbappe has since moved on to other women, as indicated above. On her part, Alicia has not been linked to any other person apart from Mbappe. However, it was reported in April 2023 that she had delivered a daughter with someone who was not named, although rumors claimed the baby belonged to French footballer Benjamin Pavard, who made it known he was not in a relationship with her.
