Kim Kardashian's Makeup Artist Mario Dedivanovic Offers $10,000 Reward After His Kit Was 'Stolen'
Kim Kardashian West‘s makeup artist has lost an essential piece to his celebrity glam job.
Mario Dedivanovic, who frequently dolls up Kardashian West as well as her sister’s Kourtney and Khloé, posted on Thursday on Instagram a video and photos of his makeup kit, which he says was stolen on Wednesday at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Dedivanovic pled with his followers on Instagram and Twitter to help him find his kit, writing, “I flew home to NYC yesterday on JetBlue and my makeup kit was stolen from JFK airport. This has never happened to me before and I don’t know what to do. That kit is my life. So many brushes that I’ve had for 15+ years. I’m offering a $10,000 reward for the return of my kit. Whoever has it please find it in your heart to return it. Please 🙏🏻 it’s a brown rimowa luggage/ 80 lbs. @jetblue”
JetBlue Airways responded on Twitter, encouraging him to continue speaking with the Central Bagging Services team and that a crew member would contact him about his lost luggage.
“We kindly ask you to continue to work with our Central Baggage Services team as all baggage claims must be handled by them. One of our crewmembers will contact you once they locate your bag. We hope that you and your bag reunite soon! Sorry!”
Dedivanovic posted an update on Monday to Instagram, saying in a video that while his bag has not been found, he has hopes that he’ll get it back.
“JetBlue has been pretty amazing, they’ve been working with for the last five days in trying to figure this out and get my bag back,” he said. “So, I still have hopes that I am going to get my kit back. I’ve been trying to rebuild it slowly for the past few days.”
He continued, “Today I actually have work for the first time with all the new stuff that I put in my kit. So it’ll be the first time that I’ve worked without my set of brushes that I’ve had for 17 years. I’m going to be okay, I just still have hope that I am going to get my kit back. It’s not over yet, but I do have hopes that it’ll be found.”
Kardashian West also tweeted her support, asking anyone with information to come forward to reunite the celebrity makeup artist with his utensils.
