AARP Member Calvin Klein and His 21-Year-Old Boyfriend Are “On A Break”

It doesn’t look like Calvin Klein is going to throw his porn-star-turned-underwear-model boyfriend Nick Gruber a big party for his birthday later this month, like he did last year at Nick’s 21st. (See photo at right.)

Calvin, 67, has gone “on a break” with his 21-year-old boy toy Nick, today’s Daily News tells us.

Klein has often been spotted out and about without Gruber recently—who was usually at his side since the relationship began in spring 2010. Heck, our anti-social ass even spotted Calvin sans son garçon in a West Village cafe just last Friday.

Calvin is still keeping in shape, too. He brushed off friends’ concerns about a recently injured shoulder and left them to head to the gym.

Gay party promoter and ex-Playgirl marketing chief Daniel Nardicio tells Queerty that, despite the 46-year age difference, Nick says they’re in love and “wants to spend the rest of his life with [Calvin].” He hears Calvin says the same.

Nardicio, however, laid out the terms that everyone has suspected: “If there is a break-up, I would imagine it’d be on Calvin’s part, as he holds the pursestrings.”

Gruber and Klein have been living together for more than a year at Calvin’s West Village apartment. It’s unclear whether Nick has moved out or what prompted the split.

    Kind of a bitchy headline. They’re both adults, what’s the big deal?

  • Marie Cohn

    Anyone can join AARP at 50, so a better headline would be “Social Security, Medicare Recipient and His 21 Year-Old Boywhore Are On a ‘Break'”.

  • mikuy

    thats so nasty

  • christopher di spirito

    I’m confused? Wasn’t Calvin Klein married to Kelly Klein? Was she just his beard like Michelle Bachmann is Dr. Marcus Bachmann’s “wife”?

  • QJ201

    Calvin Klein has had his boytoys for decades.
    This twink was just first CK was public about.

  • Isaac C

    Sick. Klein is the Hugh Hefner of the gay world. He ought to be ashamed of himself.

  • Cam

    Back to Porn for the boyfriend

  • Kurt

    It’s not “sick” Issac C, they’re both consenting adults. It’s not anything that I would want to do or be a part of but you see a lot of rich older men or sugar daddies in gay ghettos and in Palm Springs with their younger kept male prostitutes.

  • Esculapio Mitiríades Torquemada de la Cueva

    Wow. So much judgment. I still don’t see what the big deal is.

  • Esculapio Mitiríades Torquemada de la Cueva

    @CBRad: :-) Well. Yeah. Can’t argue with that. Carry on. I’ll move along.

  • wc1

    They are both connecting adults and are both getting something they want out of the relationship. Its really not any of your business, and it certainly isn’t news worthy.

  • Jeff Lassiter

    Whenever I see them out in NYC, I always think they’re making a gay version of Weekend At Bernie’s…

  • Mike UK

    Calvin Klein’s gay! really!!!

  • Mike UK

    @Mike UK: that made me chuckle! :)

  • Mike UK

    @Jeff Lassiter: that made me chuckle! :) ignore the one above! lol

  • ousslander

    Nardicio would know about such things, being the creepy predator he is

  • WillBFair

    They probably have a lot in common. While Nick watches Real Housewives, Calvin talks about designing a push up bra for Marie Antoinette.

  • Sam

    What’s with all the judgmental people on this board? You don’t like being judged in a negative way but clearly you have no problem spewing your judgement at others. Grow up.

  • WillBFair

    @Sam: You’re right. But for some of us, trophy wives are vulgar. And it’s hard not to take a swing at grampaw.

  • Cam

    @wc1: said…

    “They are both connecting adults and are both getting something they want out of the relationship. Its really not any of your business”

    Accept for the fact that the publicists keep putting out releases.

  • ESA

    @Marie Cohn: That’s what’s so nice about being a grandparent anyway, right? When you’ve had enough, you can send the kids back to Mommy and Daddy, Mommy and Mommy, or Daddy and Daddy, wtfe.

  • Tessie Tura

    AARP starts recruiting at 40. I started getting letters then.

  • Eric in Chicago

    What’s sad is when Gay men were dying right and left to AIDS in the 80’s – Calvin was deep in the closet and pretending to be straight. Now he’s a geezer finally coming out. Too little too late. Go away – but thanks for the eye candy over the years you old mary.

  • Tom

    Typical. What a gross old man & boy gold digger. Hope he takes the old fart for all he has. That’s why some my age (54) can’t even get a date.

  • Elmwoodmac

    When I get to Calvins age hopefully I have a hot young stud to change my diaper too.

    Don’t know about Calvin, but I’m pretty close to his age and recently had several people in their 20s, some gay, some straight, comment that I was in really great shape. And nobody was hitting on anyone. One person said something about a six pack, although I thought it was an exaggeration. And that’s without drugs, plastic surgery, or whatever.
    Given his attitude, though, it wouldn’t surprise anyone into karma if Elmwoodmac ends up in diapers at 60!

  • Elmwoodmac

    Oh B, look at you and your big bad self. You work it girl and keep on workin’ it.

    In the meantime I have to run along for my next triangle lesson. I’m gonna knock ’em

    dead at the home. More cowbell and triangle baby!!

    Re: No. 29 · Elmwoodmac : while the rant in No 29 is mostly incomprehensible gibberish, my guess is that this guy’s issue is that he doesn’t like it being pointed out that his “diaper” statement has little to do with reality – at the age in question, people generally don’t need diapers.

    Sounds to me like “Elmwoodmac” is confusing his prejudices with reality.
