Videos and reports circulated on the social media platform X, previously known as Twitter, suggesting that the singer and the billionaire’s son attended an event hosted by the watchmaker brand TAG Heuer on Sunday.

Dressed in a sequin-embellished dress that highlighted her slender waist and legs, Lisa was seen engaging happily with guests and having private conversations with Frédéric Arnault at times.

Following the party, they enjoyed live performances by Colombian singer J Balvin. Positioned on the upper deck, they were seen whispering to each other occasionally.

Before departing, Lisa seized the moment to snap photos with J Balvin.

Rumors about Lisa’s close association with Frédéric Arnault started after he began following her on Instagram in 2022 and actively liked her posts. As of now, both have remained silent about the speculations surrounding their relationship.

Throughout 2023 and into the current year, Lisa has been frequently spotted with Frédéric Arnault in various countries, including a recent trip to the Rodin Museum in Paris, followed by a shared dinner last month.

Lisa, born Pranpriya Manoban in Thailand and now 27, joined Blackpink in 2016. She launched a solo music career in 2021 with her album "Lalisa," becoming the first K-pop artist to reach over 1 billion streams on Spotify with her track "Money."

In addition to her music career, Lisa has made a name for herself in the fashion world, serving as a global ambassador for renowned luxury brands like Celine and Bulgari. She commands a strong social media presence, with more than 103 million followers on Instagram.

Frédéric Arnault, 29, holds the position of CEO at the watch division of his father’s luxury fashion group LVMH, which encompasses brands such as Hublot, TAG Heuer, and Zenith.

As reported by Forbes, as of May 29, Bernard Arnault and his family rank as the wealthiest globally, with an estimated net worth of US$204.3 billion. The majority of the Arnault family’s wealth comes from their ownership in LVMH, which includes prominent luxury brands like Christian Dior, Fendi, Loewe, Celine, and Bulgari, among others.
