Frédéric Arnault, heir to the LVMH empire, was seen supporting Blackpink Lisa’s first performance at the Crazy Horse Paris, a venue known for its nude female dancing.

Lisa reportedly had her first performance at the Crazy Horse Paris on Thursday night, with Arnault and several of his relatives present at the venue, according to Sina.

The wealthy socialite and businessman smiled and showed his signs of support to Lisa throughout the performance, sources said, while Lisa’ two bandmates Rosé and Jisoo also arrived to cheer for her.

Arnault was also seen leaving with Lisa from the airport when she arrived in France Tuesday ahead of her performance at the cabaret.

The Crazy Horse is a burlesque and exotic cabaret club where often dancers strip naked.

Lisa reportedly had six performances, including two solo acts, through the night. She only partially stripped, instead of performing nude as rumors had it.

Discussions about her performances at the globally renowned cabaret made it to the list of trending topics on the social media platform X, formerly Twitter, in many countries including France and the U.S.

The keyword "Lisa’s Crazy Horse outlook" also garnered over 700 million views on Chinese social media platform Weibo.

Despite public criticism for probably setting a bad example for her fans ahead of the show, Lisa’s Thursday performance received acclaim from many viewers, who said they were impressed with the singer’s performing skills, sexiness, and strength. According to them, the artist’s meaningful acts made her look graceful even when she donned swimwear or risqué cut-out apparels.

Feifei, an audience member, said Lisa exploded with confidence on the stage, with the crowd excited and screaming whenever she appeared.

One of the singer’s acts reportedly revolved around an office worker under pressure after stock market losses. Lisa was praised for the way she stripped off her tie and hurled it into the audience, which was described as beautifully done and emotionally intense.

Lisa is scheduled to perform at the venue for two more nights this week, on Friday and Saturday. All of her shows are limited to viewers aged over 16 only, and guests are asked to not use their cellphones during the artist’s performances.

According to Crazy Horse Paris, 50,000 people were looking for a ticket to watch the singer’s performance at the venue.

Born Lalisa Manoban in Thailand, Lisa, 26, made her debut with the South Korean girl group Blackpink in 2016. She then launched a simultaneous solo career in 2021.

She has established her name in the fashion industry as a global ambassador for various luxury brands, including Celine and Bulgari.

Her music career has also soared, and she has become the first solo K-pop artist to have a song reach 1 billion streams on Spotify with her song "Money."

Arnault, 28, is currently CEO of Swiss watchmaker brand Tag Heuer, while his father’s conglomerate is the house that manages Christian Dior, Fendi, Loewe, Celine, Bulgari, and others.
