Blackpink’s Lisa was spotted spending time with LVMH heir and French businessman Frédéric Arnault in Paris, rekindling dating rumors between the two.

An onlooker said in a post uploaded late last month to Chinese social media platform Weibo that she saw Lisa with a man in the Musée Rodin’s gardens. The post included photos allegedly taken of the two to back the user's claim.

The user's allegations were further bolstered when Lisa uploaded a photo of her visit to the gardens on Instagram on Wednesday, as part of a compilation of photos.

“I was basking in the sun this afternoon at the Musée Rodin gardens when I saw a girl taking photos of her ice cream,” the Weibo post said.

“She turned around, and we made eye contact. I thought ‘she looks a lot like Lisa.’ The man beside looked pretty familiar, too.”

The user said the two were not covering their faces with sunglasses, but that no one bothered them.

“They were just like a normal couple, enjoying the sun, eating ice cream and taking a stroll in the garden.”

Onlookers speculated that the man in the photos was Arnault. Dating rumors started up again after Lisa’s post on Wednesday, with people saying she had “confirmed” their relationship after the allegations were made.

Arnault is the CEO of LVMH Watches, a division under French luxury-brand conglomerate LVMH. Rumors of the businessman and Lisa dating first started after the two were seen having a meal together at a restaurant in Paris in July last year.

He has since been linked to the Blackpink member after he attended Blackpink shows and was reportedly spotted with her on various occasions, including attending Lisa’s performance as a special guest at the Crazy Horse Cabaret.

YG Entertainment, Lisa's agency at the time when the dating rumors first started, refused to comment on her relationship. The two have not publicly denied nor confirmed that they are dating.

Lisa debuted as a member of Blackpink under YG Entertainment in 2016. She founded her own label, Lloud Co., in February.

The singer launched her solo career with her first single, “Lalisa,” in September 2021. She will make her acting debut with a role in the upcoming third season of HBO’s “The White Lotus.”
