BLACKPINK's Lisa is making headling again after social media users suggest a budding relationship between her and Frédéric Arnault, the CEO of Tag Heuer and LVMH heir.

The rumors started earlier this year when Lisa was seen with Frédéric on multiple occasions, including that time when the K-pop idol was spotted at an unknown restaurant in Paris with an individual, whom fans speculate to be Frédéric.

Then in August 2023, fans believe that Lisa was out vacationing with the young CEO's family after Lisa and Frédéric's sister-in-law, Géraldine Guyot-Arnault, posted identical photos just days apart.

With all of these speculations, neither confirmed nor denied, many fans, especially BLINKS, are curious about Frédéric's identity.

A CEO and son of 'Europe's wealthiest man'

Frédéric is the fourth child of Bernard Arnault and Hélène Mercier. His father is the CEO of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, a conglomerate specializing in luxury goods.

Early in his childhood, Frédéric developed an early love of timepieces. His father gave him a TAG Heuer Aquaracer for his 11th birthday, which marked the beginning of his close relationship with the company. This connection opened the door for him to enter the high-end watch business. He is now the brand's youngest CEO at 28.

Frédéric graduated from the École Polytechnique, one of France's most prestigious universities, with a degree in Computational and Applied Mathematics from 2014 to 2018. The said university is also known for producing top-tier scientific and technological leaders

Frédéric also held internships at Facebook and McKinsey & Company, as per his LinkedIn profile. He has excellent conversational skills in Italian, German, and both English and French.

Prior to working as the CEO of TAG Heuer, the 28-year-old businessman first became the head of connected technologies in September 2017 and later became the strategy and digital director for a year.

He gained fame in 2020 when he teamed up with Barbie's Ken, Ryan Gosling, as an ambassador for the said brand after he took over.

A sporty business magnate

On his Instagram, the young executive is very fond of playing chess with his dad as well as playing tennis with pro athletes, including Roger Federer and Félix Auger-Aliassime. He also does golf, running, and kite-surfing.
