Actress Pich Ariza is rumoured to be in a relationship with a rich man after throwing an extravagant birthday party last month and showing off an expensive car and a luxurious apartment.

A source says she is now living in the De Castle apartment block and has a maid, a butler and a bodyguard as if she was the madam of a high-ranking official.

“She lived in a shabby house in Oreussey Market before. She didn’t even own a car. But now she is completely a rich lady.”

The 22-year-old newbie actress, who spent more than $US 10,000 on her birthday bash. insists her recent lifestyle upgrade comes from her own sweat and blood: “I don’t have any special sponsor.

Everything comes from my own income and my parents.”
