Pann reports that Lisa navigated out of the hotel following Frédéric, albeit through separate exits. The artist was recognized for her signature layered hairstyle and apparel and footwear she has previously worn on numerous occasions.

Following her birthday celebrations with her kin in Thailand in late-March, Lisa is currently in Japan. Her present schedule remains undisclosed.

Speculation about Lisa’s close ties with Frédéric gained traction when the billionaire heir started following her on Instagram in 2022 and has since regularly engaged with her postings. Throughout 2023, the two have been frequently observed in each other’s company.

No statements have been made by either party regarding the rumors about their relationship to date.

Born Pranpriya Manoban in Thailand, Lisa, 27, debuted in the South Korean girl group Blackpink in 2016 and ventured into a solo career with her album "Lalisa" in 2021.

She has set a record as the first K-pop artist whose song achieved over 1 billion streams on Spotify with her track "Money."

Apart from her musical pursuits, the singer has established herself in the fashion realm, serving as a global ambassador for eminent luxury labels such as Celine and Bulgari. Her social media influence is notable, with a staggering 100 million followers on Instagram.

Frédéric, 29, is currently the CEO of the watch division of his father’s luxury fashion empire LVMH, managing brands like Hublot, TAG Heuer, and Zenith.

As per Forbes on April 3, Bernard, along with his family, was listed as the world’s wealthiest, boasting a fortune estimated at US$222.4 billion.

The Arnaults’ wealth primarily stems from LVMH, which includes top-tier luxury brands like Christian Dior, Fendi, Loewe, Celine, and Bulgari among others.
