After the split early last year between the 70-year-old fashion designer and his 47-years-younger (that makes him 23!) former love, Gruber was arrested for cocaine possession and for punching a 20-year-old intern for Senator Frank R. Lautenberg, who dropped the charges. Following a stint in rehab (paid for by Klein) and strapped for cash, Gruber also planned to write a tell-all and tape a reality show about their ill-fated romance, but has since dropped plans for both projects.
The New York Post reports a source saying that Klein still feels very protective of the younger man. “Nick and Calvin had been texting and met up at the Chateau Marmont [in Los Angeles] about a month ago.”
The paper also quotes a spokesperson for Klein stating the designer wants to keep the relationship “low-key” but there is no renewed romance between the two: “I can confirm they are friends and no more. There is no relationship whatsoever, but at the same time Calvin holds no grudges and has put whatever problems they had behind him.”
Maybe not, but this definitely has the makings of a great follow-up to Behind the Candelabra.
