Calvin Klein’s Former Boy Toy Claims Designer is Stalking Him
After an on-and-off relationship with iconic designer Calvin Klein, it looks like Nick Gruber has bagged himself a new man.
But Gruber’s new relationship with John Luciano seems to be off to a rocky start as the 22-year-old model is suggesting that Klein is stalking him and Luciano, who is 48, the New York Daily News reported.
"Calvin can hire goons to follow John and I all he wants. We have nothing to hide," Gruber said. "I’ve moved on."
The handsome young man claims that an investigator, who is a well-known detective, has been following him and his sugar daddy and was hired by Klein, 69. Gruber also said that the cop isn’t trying to hide his identity as the P.I. allegedly got into a small fight with Gruber during a friend’s party in New York City’s Meatpacking District.
The model said the investigator began to shout about how Luciano is linked to the mob and is being followed by the F.B.I. Additionally, Gruber said the P.I. appeared at his hotel this week.
Gruber believes Klein hired the investigator to watch his every move because he misses him. Nevertheless, the former porn star said he is in a happy relationship with Luciano, who said he isn’t worried about being followed.
"My family’s been followed before," Luciano, who is distantly related to gangster Lucky Luciano, told us on the phone from Los Angeles. "They were snooping around some friends and celebrities and it’s really silly. I’ve seen them and I laugh."
Luciano also said he believes Klein has hired the snoop because the designer misses Gruber.
"I understand what it’s like to be broken-hearted, and I’m sure Calvin’s heartbroken," he said. "Nick’s a great guy."
The couple said they will not pursue legal action against Klein or the individual sent to follow them.
Gruber and Klein began dating in the spring of 2010 but their relationship was tumultuous at times.
EDGE reported that people close to them called their relationship "on-and-off" and in January Klein appeared at an event without his boy toy. But other reports at the time stated that Gruber loves Klein and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with him.
In April, Gruber was arrested for assaulting Calvin Swint, 20, whom he took home after a party, EDGE reported. Gruber was allegedly resisting arrest by shoving his hands into his pants to avoid being handcuffed. Police searched the ex-porn star and found cocaine in his underwear.
