According to Herodotus, Rhodopis was a slave who was freed, became a "hetaira" or courtesan and became wealthy (in that order); but she never married the Pharao. In Strabo (400+ years after Herodotus), Rhodopis is a courtesan who marries the Pharao, but it is not said that she has ever been a slave. The only constant is that she was a "hetaira".

"True story by Aesop" makes no sense. Aesop was a writer of beast fables. The tale of the courtesan Rhodopis is really from Herodotus, which again does not necessarily mean it is a "true" story. Herodotus lived some 150 years after the famous Rhodopis. As we have a page for "Rhodopis", it is not necessary to expound the origins of Rhodopis here.
