Former model KAREN MULDER seemed to have put her troubled past behind her as she frolicked on a beach in the south of France with her boyfriend.

The 33-year-old blonde created massive controversy in 2001 when she filed a rape case against PRINCE ALBERT OF MONACO, before going on to accuse her father and modelling bosses of sexual abuse.

However, Mulder later retracted her allegations and underwent psychiatric treatment, and the Dutch beauty seemed happy again as she kissed and hugged model JULIEN ZUCCOLIN in the exclusive Bidart resort.

An onlooker says, "She still looks absolutely stunning and in great shape and she's been turning heads everywhere she's been since she got here."
