Who is Marc Kalman? Bella Hadid's art director boyfriend works with Travis Scott
Bella Hadid, in all her statuesque glory, is taking Cannes by storm at the moment. In the midst of red carpet appearances and media interactions, Hadid squeezed in some time to strut the runway and sit front row at some of the shows with the crème de la crème of the fashion world at the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. In the midst of all her professional commitments, Gigi's little sister has found the time to catch a break and celebrate herself as well as her new relationship.
Hadid has been seen out in public with a mystery man for the past couple of months with speculations being rife that the two are dating. Hadid did not publicly confirm the reports but continued to keep up appearances with her rumored new beau. She was last spotted with her mystery man in June while leaving a restaurant in West Village, New York City, and the couple was accompanied by Hadid's friends. After months and months of rumors swirling around her dating life, The Weeknd's ex-girlfriend has now confirmed that she is indeed taken by posting a photo of her sharing a cozy moment with her new love via Instagram.

Who is Bella Hadid dating?
Bella Hadid did not tag her boyfriend or reveal his identity in the blurry photo but many are speculating him to be Marc Kalman. However, a report by The Sun confirms that the person in the photograph with Hadid is Marc Kalman. The two have been photographed hanging out with each other a lot in the past couple of months in and around New York City. Kalman's Instagram is set to private and has 3,144 followers, Hadid is one of them.
There's a Kardashian connection also between Hadid and her new boyfriend. According to ELLE, Marc Kalman has worked as an art director for Kylie Jenner's boyfriend Travis Scott and Hadid is close pals with Kylie's sister Kendall Jenner. Kalman is famously known for his work with Scott in the music industry and even has a portfolio site showcasing his various projects, which includes doing album art for Scott and creating branding for Milk Studio's Made Fashion Week.
Hadid shared the loved-up photo with her new boyfriend days after Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd were photographed during an outing. Fans of the two were excited about the prospect of a romance between the two but it was quashed almost immediately after sources confirmed there was no love brewing between them. “Angelina and The Weeknd had a business meeting. It had to do with their HBO shows. They got along great, but there is nothing romantic happening between the two of them," sources said.
This is Hadid's first public relationship after her on and off affair with the 'Blinding Lights' hitmaker between 2015 to 2019. In March 2020 he released his fourth studio album titled 'After Hours' and fans couldn't ignore the references he made about the nature of his relationship with Hadid. For instance, in the song 'Scared to Live' the singer addressed his on-off relationship with the model and encouraged her to move on with someone else. "No, don't be scared to live again / Be scared to live again / You always miss the chance to fall for someone else (Uh, uh) / 'Cause your heart only knows me," he sang at one point in the track.
