Calvin Klein Reconciles with Boytoy Nick Gruber

Calvin Klein and his boytoy Nick Gruber have reportedly patched things up, despite Gruber's threats to write a 'beyond shocking' tell-all about Klein and star in a reality show following their break-up.

GruberPage Six reports:

A source now tells us, “Calvin feels very protective over him. Despite all that has happened, and everything he’s done, he still loves Nick.” We’re told Klein flew Gruber to Mexico and the two met up at an exclusive resort there. The source added, “Calvin wants to keep it low-key.”

Another source said, “Nick and Calvin had been texting and met up at the Chateau Marmont [in Los Angeles] about a month ago. Nick and John broke up around February, but remained friends. John actually encouraged Nick to get back with Calvin. He thinks it would be helpful for him.”

A spokesperson for Klein said: “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.”

  1. "Boytoy" seems a bit judgmental to me. I don't follow the romantic lives of celebrities, and I suppose Klein could be such a whoremonger that the term might be appropriate. However, I think it would be good to demonstrate a bit of respect for the relationships of gay couples if possible.

  2. Who is John? Or are we supposed to know that?

  3. Candideinnc.... Whe the guy is a hundred years older and controls all the money it is a boytoy,... and a bit pathetic and gross ... This is a Liberace all the way.

  4. The tawdry lives of a once famous designer and his white trash prostitute should not be news worthy of publishing!

  5. This is a gross article that did not need to be written. Leave stories like this to the bottom feeders like Harvey Levin.

  6. HBO had a hit show with "Behind the Candelabra". This will be the sequel (or perhaps a mini-series).

  8. Art--

    I am 14 years older than my lover of 23 years. I believe May-December romances can be very, very successful in the right circumstances, where there is emotional parity. The money issue no doubt complicates the relationship, I admit.

  9. Behind the Candlebra II: The Calvin and Nick Story.

    I was a waiter at a gay "high end" restaurant...older wealthy men dragged their boy toys and "dates" (escorts, hookers) in for dinner all the time. Worst was the dude who literally brought in what looked like homeless gay teenagers.

  10. Calvin Klein stock can't be worth a fraction of what it once was. How many actresses (or actors) show up anywhere anymore "I'm wearing Calvin Klein?" Zero.

    Calvin and Kelly - a love story.

    What is this Towlerez?

    I'm kind of surprised by this tacky posting about this tired scary queen and his hooker.

  12. Beyond shocking? In the old days Nick would have just been killed, had an 'accident', or an 'accidental' overdose. In all seriousness he probably does know stuff Klein and others would never want publicized.

  13. Is this the sequel to "Behind the Candelabra"?

  14. @Candid: so are all same-sex relationships above criticism or even salacious gossip just because they are same-sex? Uh, no. We are fighting for equality, not special treatment. That means in this case some folks are going to find the nearly 50 year age difference disgusting, some will enjoy gossiping about this celebrity couple airing their dirty laundry in public, etc. Just as would be done is this couple were of a hetero pairing.

  15. Does anybody believe this PR concoction? Is Klein doing this while trying to get Gruber to sign a non-disclosure/non-disparagement agreement? Is there some mob connection through Luciano? We will probably never know. We are talking about the behavior of old men, and there are plenty of old, straight men with female companions in similar positions, it's just that the gay element can still spark salacious curiosity.

  16. Damn, you bitches are like the gay censorship board.

  17. If there is a 20 plus year age difference and the old troll is incredibly rich and the stud is a pornstar, then yes the boy in question is a toy.

  18. This is really a coincidence, since I have been thinking about getting back together with my much younger boyfriend (btw, he's much better looking than Nick).

    The heart wants what the heart wants.

    He's texted me, and I wrestle with whether I should text him back or not. Maybe if Calvin can let bygones be bygones, I can too.

  19. Have to agree with Jerry. ^^^

    Although lil' guber is kinda hot in that snaggle-toothed Tennesee hillbilly way.

  20. Thanks Jerry, my BF is only 19 years younger so he misses your cutoff!

  21. Even a 20 year difference is one thing.

    A 50-year difference (Klein is about 70, his piece about 20), is quite another. I don't really believe Hugh Hefner's new wife is "true love" either

  22. Nick must have some really juicy sh*t on Calvin, and taking him back as his boy toy is Klein's only way of getting him to shut up that doesn't involve dumping his body in a landfill.

  23. Calvin wants to keep it low-key? ROTFLMAO!

  24. The acceptable range for relationships is half your age plus 9. So if you're 70 (like Klein), it's acceptable to date someone who is 44 or older. If you're 30, you can date someone 24 or older.

    I don't make the rules, I just enforce them.

  25. I'm in my 40's. The 20 crowd seems to love me (and many others in their 40's). It makes me very uncomfortable. Wish the guys in their 40's reacted to me in the same way. :>)
