The Blackpink star uploaded to her Instagram on Wednesday images taken at Paris’ Rodin Museum and a restaurant in the same city. Prior to her post, images of her with Frédéric at these places were already circulating on social media and had garnered attention.

Consequently, many people believe that Lisa’s act of posting these photos subtly affirmed her and Frédéric’s time spent together and the speculations regarding their romantic connection.

"Their love story is real," a netizen commented.

"At first I thought it was just a rumor, but now that she has posted photos at the locations where she was seen with Frédéric, congratulations Lisa," expressed another.

The rumors about Lisa’s close relationship with Frédéric arose after he started following her on Instagram in 2022 and consistently engaged with her posts. To this point, neither among the two has publicly commented on the rumors about their relationship.

Nevertheless, Lisa has been frequently spotted with Frédéric in various countries throughout 2023 and into the current year.

Lisa, born Pranpriya Manoban in Thailand and is now 27, became a member of the South Korean girl group Blackpink in 2016.

She embarked on her solo music career with the release of the album "Lalisa" in 2021 and achieved a significant milestone as the first K-pop artist to surpass 1 billion streams on Spotify with her song "Money."

Beyond her music, Lisa has established herself in the fashion industry, serving as a global ambassador for prestigious luxury brands including Celine and Bulgari. She also commands a significant social media presence, boasting over 100 million followers on Instagram.

Frédéric, 29, currently serves as the CEO of the watch division at his father’s luxury fashion conglomerate LVMH, which includes brands such as Hublot, TAG Heuer, and Zenith.

According to Forbes, as of May 3, Bernard Arnault and his family are recognized as the world's richest, possessing an estimated fortune of US$206.9 billion. The substantial wealth of the Arnault family primarily stems from LVMH, which owns prominent luxury brands like Christian Dior, Fendi, Loewe, Celine, and Bulgari, among others.
