As reported by Nate, the singer and the socialite were seen at the same location in Miami Beach, Florida, with photos of them surfacing on X, previously known as Twitter.

They maintained a distance from each other in the photos, with Lisa walking alongside French media personality Géraldine Guyot, who is Arnault’s sister-in-law, while the socialite was seen a short distance away with his brother. The quartet was dressed in formal attire.

Speculation regarding Lisa’s close relationship with Arnault intensified as he began following her on Instagram in 2022 and consistently liked her posts. The artist has frequently been seen in the socialite’s company throughout 2023.

According to Sinchew, Lisa is actively broadening her footprint in France through various commitments, including a recent performance at Le Gala des Pièces Jaunes, a charity event led by France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron, on Jan. 26.

Born Pranpriya Manoban in Thailand, Lisa, 27, made her debut as a member of the South Korean girl group Blackpink in 2016 and embarked on a solo career with the release of her album "Lalisa" in 2021.

She has made history as the first K-pop artist to have a song surpass 1 billion streams on Spotify.

Beyond her music career, Lisa has carved a niche for herself in the fashion industry, becoming a global ambassador for prestigious luxury brands like Celine and Bulgari. Her influence also extends to social media, where she boasts an impressive following of 100 million on Instagram.

Arnault, 29, is currently the CEO of LVMH’s watch division, overseeing Hublot, TAG Heuer and Zenith. His father’s conglomerate LVMH manages prestigious luxury brands such as Christian Dior, Fendi, Loewe, Celine, and Bulgari, among others.
