Chinese news platform Sohu reported that Arnault sent a private jet to pick Lisa up from South Korea at the beginning of this month, so that she could celebrate his birthday with him and his family on Nov. 7.

Sources said the Blackpink star stayed in Paris for a week. She was spotted at the Celine shop at the Paris-based department store Le Bon Marché, a property of the Arnault family.

The news reinforced speculations about the close relationship between the singer and the socialite, which started coming into the spotlight when Arnault started following Lisa on Instagram last year. He has been "liking" the singer’s posts ever since.

He was also present at the Crazy Horse Paris cabaret, known for its nude female dancing, for Lisa’s three-night performance there in September.

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

Her music career has been marked by numerous notable achievements, including the first solo K-pop artist to have a work that reached 1 billion streams on Spotify with her song "Money."

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

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