Calvin Klein Whisked Former Boy Toy Nick Gruber Off For Mexican Getaway

calvinnickgruber-450x403Nothing comes between Calvin Klein and his…former boyfriend Nick Gruber, as the tempestuous twosome have reportedly reunited and are vacationing together at an exclusive resort in Mexico.

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.

    Trash is always attracting similar trash.

  • Magnusmina21

    In unrelated news, Mexican journalists announced today that THE COUNTRY HAS RUN OUT OF COKE.

  • Cam

    So basically the guy threatened to write a tell all and Klein started supporting him again.

    Trash is, as trash does.

  • fredo777

    Funny, I thought of the Liberace connection when I saw them posed next to each other, looking as if they had gotten work to look more similar.

  • seaguy

    Klein is obviously lavishing the boy with trips and money to keep his mouth shut on their relationship. I can see it now the Sequal to Behind the Candleabra this time Behind the boxer Briefs…

  • biquee

    that boy is ugly . yuck

  • Rockery

    Do you have to show CK’s face?? He is so ugly, Nick is kind of ugly too (there is no way he is only 23 either, maybe 29), but CK is even uglier. Whew!

  • dvlaries

    You know queerty, this kind of ‘crap news’ just mars the beauty and bouquet of all the encouraging marriage news that’s come of late.
    I suspect it’s a significantly smaller number of us than you suppose who give a shit about the doings of this embarrassing crone and his paid boy-toy.

    This is not a May-December romance. This is a May 2013-December 2014 romance. Klein is just making sure his former piece is not going to get cra-cra and publish anything. Nothing more.

    @ Balehead,

    Please pick up a dictionary. Bullying ” To force one’s way aggressively or by intimidation” etc…

    Disagreeing with something or factually pointing out the age difference, obvious gold digger status or the fact that the guy is a drug addict is not forcing our way by intimidation now is it?

    My statement said quite clearly He threatened to write a tell all and now Klein is supporting him again. That is a fact is it not? Just because Klein may not like that fact being so clearly pointed out doesn’t change that fact. So please stop comparing the horrific, violent, hell that causes so many kids to kill themselves to pointing out that there is a big age difference in this relationship.

    @Cam: Exactly. People are taking this anti-bullying campaign too far. The world cannot be made a safe place for everyone, all the time. If someone cannot take differing points of view, they may as well go off and hide in a cave somewhere.
