Yep, It’s Time for a Deep Dive on Bella Hadid’s Art Director Boyfriend, Marc Kalman

Travis Scott loves his work!

Sorry to anyone still waiting on a wishing star for Bella Hadid and The Weeknd to get back together, but it doesn’t seem like a reconciliation will be happening between those two anytime soon! In fact, Bella seems to have *fully* moved on to a new guy (who isn’t Jack Nicholson’s grandson—remember that brief romance?).

Just to make sure everyone is on the same page, Bella first hinted at her current romance back in July 2021 when she posted a pic of herself living it up somewhere in Cannes before touching down in Paris (model things). “Time of my life,” she captioned the post (per Us Weekly). “Healthy, working, and loved.” Loved by whom, you ask? The guy hiding in the final photo in the (since-deleted) pic set:

Fans promptly tracked down this guy’s identity quicker than the FBI and CIA combined and learned that he’s Marc Kalman. He’s kind of a big deal when it comes to art, so that being said, let’s figure out everything there is to know about Marc, who has been Bella’s low-key other half for a while now.

Marc works primarily in art direction.

If you head to his website, you’ll see that Marc has some A-list clientele under his belt—most notably, he’s done visuals for Travis Scott’s past albums and tour merchandise.

Marc worked on Travis’s branding alongside artist Corey Damon Black, and the pair did an interview with 1985 to discuss their work. The writer of the profile describes Marc as a good listener (A+ quality for a BF to have), a “young Fabien Baron, Charles Saatchi, and Steve Jobs all rolled into one,” and “more cautious and calculating” than his artistic partner.

In the profile, Black said, “Marc manages my impulses. When I’m working on something, Marc is, like, the only person I will talk to. I go into a cave. I don’t want to hear what anyone else thinks.”

Outside of working with Travis, Marc has also designed clothing for A Bathing Ape and worked on branding for Made Fashion Week for Milk Studios.

Marc and Bella have been dating WAY longer than we originally thought.

Page Six reported that Marc and Bella kept their relationship under wraps for A WHOLE YEAR before deciding to go public with their romance on Instagram, y’all. They’ve actually been dating since July 2020, but fans didn’t notice signs of Bella and Marc’s relationship because they often had no physical contact with each other where paparazzi would catch them.

“They hid it well,” a source told the outlet. “If they went out, he would come out first, get the car, and then she would get into the car. They would drive to a location, and he’d drop her off but not get out and go park the car. They were very diligent about not being seen on a public street at the same time.”

And there’s picture proof to back it up! The earliest Marc and Bella were seen together was on July 2, 2020—Marc’s hiding in plain sight in the navy blue tee (he’s the one with the light hair):

And here’s Bella and Marc (pictured in the backward cap) eating dinner on September 24, 2020, once again fooling paparazzi:

Bella and Marc (who was labeled as a “friend,” lol) were also spotted by paparazzi two months later on November 23, 2020:

Amazing how they managed to pull this off for so long!

His Instagram is private.

Don’t hop on IG thinking you’ll find Marc posting—his Instagram is private. He and Bella follow each other though, so…there’s that!


And he’s a low-key person in general.

You rarely see pics of Bella and Marc together, even though they’ve been going strong for a year and a half now. That’s by design and Bella really appreciates Marc’s low-key nature.

“Bella is used to dating men who are well known in the public eye. But she’s loving the fact that Marc is more low-key and behind the scenes than her previous boyfriends,” an insider told Hollywood Life of the couple. “She always has so much going on and so does he. But that allows them to miss each other more often and they cherish the time they do get to spend together. They work really great together.”

He has a big heart.

Bella and Marc have maintained their *very* low-key status since going public as a couple, but a rare sighting in February 2022 only made us love them both more, TBH. Bella and Marc were spotted volunteering together at the Bowery Shelter in New York City.

Bella did share some snaps from the day of giving back on IG, but Marc was predictably absent from the pics.

And that’s all we know about Marc for now. BRB, getting ready to ship the crap out of him and Bella with my whole heart and nothing less!
