Mario Dedivanovic partner: Kim Kardashian has long relied on Mario Dedivanovic as her go-to cosmetician. Although the Kardashian family is renowned for its extreme closeness, each sister of the family has friends and coworkers who have been a part of their personal inner circles for many years.
Many of the family’s most dependable confidantes have made appearances on both Keeping Up with the Kardashians and The Kardashians throughout the years, from Kylie Jenner‘s friendship with Stassie Karanikolaou to Khloé Kardashian’s relationship with Malika Haqq.
Unlike some of her sisters, Kim Kardashian collaborates with a large number of her allies, such as Tracy Romulus, the CCO of KKW Brands, Jen Atkin, Chris Appleton, and Mario Dedivanovic, her makeup artist.
While Mario is well-known in the beauty industry and for his friendship and business relationship with Kim, he has remained relatively quiet about the specifics of his personal life. So, does Mario have a partner? Continue reading to learn what he revealed about his personal life.
Who Is Mario Dedivanovic’s Partner?
Mario Dedivanovic is single at the moment and likes to keep his personal life private. The founder has even revealed that he has been single for 18 years now.
There is a chance that Mario is still keeping a lot of his personal life private even if it doesn’t seem like he has a partner because he hasn’t featured anyone on his open Instagram feed or talked about a significant other there.
After all, Mario already lives a public life as one of Kim’s closest friends.
He has spent his entire life putting his career first, and as a result, he currently runs the highly successful business “Makeup by Mario” as its CEO. In a March interview with Forbes, Mario gave a little insight into his personal life, saying:
“I didn’t have a partner for 18 years because I was married to my job, permanently on the road, doing brand partnerships or the Master Class. I took my first summer vacation last year [in 2022]. I started to have weekends off and it was groundbreaking.”
Since March the 39-year-old makeup artist has not given any update on his personal life and his Instagram feed is also inactive since January of this year.
Is Mario Dedivanovic Gay?
Yes, Mario Dedivanovic publicly came out as gay in November 2019. Despite appearing on both of Kim’s reality shows throughout the years, Mario has kept a lot of information about his personal life private.
Kim gave Mario the Artistic Achievement Award in November 2019, and during his acceptance speech (which he later shared on Instagram), he came out as gay in front of the audience.
The makeup artist revealed that he had come out to his mother Ljulja Dedivanovic a few days ago. He got his start at Sephora. During the awards show, Mario said,
“I told her, finally, that I had spent my entire life and childhood suppressing my thoughts, suppressing my dreams, my feelings, my creativity, and trying to be invisible so that no one would know how I am feeling inside, and so no one would see how I walk, how I talk… I knew that I was born different.”
“Right now, I stand here for the first time in my life [as] a proud, 37-year-old gay man. Right now, I finally feel that bright light that I’ve been dreaming of my whole life.”
