A picture of French soccer star Kylian Mbappe and Moroccan soccer star Achraf Hakimi has gone viral on social media. Fans have noticed the picture in a way to interpret that Mbappe might be gay. His rumored transgender model girlfriend Ines Rau also started trending on social media due to the speculations.
France and Paris Saint-Germain forward Mbappe was instrumental in defeating Morocco in the semi-final of the FIFA World Cup 2022. He was heavily involved in both the goals scored by France in their 2-0 triumph. Theo Hernandez and Randal Kolo Muani got on the scoresheet that night.
Mbappe posted a picture embracing his PSG teammate Hakimi after the match. He captioned it, “Don’t be sad bro, everybody is proud of what you did, you made history.”
Mbappe and Hakimi are very good friends. The players were spotted sitting and talking on the floor inside the stadium after the semi-final.
Mbappe will represent France in the all-important World Cup final on Sunday, December 18, 2022. France will face Argentina and Lionel Messi in the showpiece event. On the other hand, Hakimi and Morocco lost out on the 3rd spot against Croatia on Saturday. Josko Gvardiol and Mislav Orsic were on target for Croatia while Achraf Dari scored for Morocco in a 2-1 loss.
Did Kylian Mbappe come out as gay?
Fans have speculated if Mbappe is actually gay but no official reports have been made public about it. The 23-year-old soccer player has previously been linked to Emma Smet, a French actress. However, they never made their relationship public and if they were ever together, they are not anymore.
Rumors have recently claimed that Mbappe is dating Ines Rau, who rose to fame in 2017. She was the first transgender model on the cover of Playboy.

Mbappe’s Twitter post for Hakimi went viral. Not for the best of reasons. Fans have said that Mbappe got “a little too excited” around Hakimi. A ‘bulge’ in his shorts was noticed by social media.
One fan joked: “Ok bro, but why you hard?”
Another fan responded, “Not that there is anything wrong with being gay.”
Did you not know he's gay?
I thought that was common knowledge now?
