In recent days, the global entertainment industry has been abuzz with speculation surrounding the relationship between BLACKPINK's Lisa, a K-pop sensation, and Frédéric Arnault, the heir to the LVMH empire and CEO of TAG Heuer. The duo, often seen together at various events, has sparked rumors of a potential romantic relationship, leaving fans and media outlets worldwide in a state of anticipation.
Lisa, a member of the globally renowned K-pop group BLACKPINK, has been a hot topic in the industry for her daily routine, city visits, and now, her personal life. The rumor mill started churning when Lisa and Arnault were spotted dining together in Paris, a moment captured by paparazzi that quickly went viral. This sighting, coupled with their frequent appearances together at events due to Lisa's official relationship with Bulgari and Celine, has led to speculation about the nature of their relationship.
Frédéric Arnault, the third son of Bernard Arnault, the founder of LVMH and the world's wealthiest person in 2023, is a notable figure in his own right. A graduate of the prestigious École Polytechnique in France with a degree in applied mathematics and computer science, Arnault is a polyglot fluent in French, English, Italian, and German. He began his career at TAG Heuer as the Head of Connected Technologies and ascended to the position of CEO in 2020.
The speculation about Lisa and Arnault's relationship has been fueled by their frequent appearances together at events. Arnault's presence at these events is often work-related due to Lisa's professional ties with Bulgari and Celine. Their relationship seemed to deepen when Arnault showed his support for Lisa backstage at Coachella 2023, where BLACKPINK was headlining.
Despite the rampant speculation, both Lisa and Arnault have remained silent on the matter. Some fans believe they are merely good friends, while others are hopeful for a romantic relationship. Regardless of the nature of their relationship, it is evident that they share a strong bond, both as business partners and friends.
Korean media outlets, including JoongAng Ilbo, Maeil Kyungjae, and Sports Kyung Hyang, have reported on the alleged relationship, leading to mixed reactions from netizens. Some have congratulated the pair, while others insist they are just friends. Some comments include, "Lisa is a veteran now, so it is understandable if she dates," and "All I know is that Lisa could do so much better, ㅠㅠ. The man is honestly ugly AF. It's a relief that he is at least rich."
As the world awaits an official announcement, the intrigue surrounding Lisa and Arnault's relationship continues to grow. Whether they are friends or more, one thing is certain: they have the world's attention.
