American designer Calvin Klein dated 22-year old Nick Gruber for two and a half years and now post break-up, Klein is having private investigators follow his ex because his replacement may have connections to the mob. 

Is Calvin Kleins Ex Dating a Member of the Mob?

It’s not like 69-year old fashion designer Calvin Klein dating someone 47 years his junior is scandalous enough. The American designer carried on a relationship with 22-year old Nick Gruber for two and a half years and now three months after their breakup, he’s having him followed by private investigators.

Three months ago Calvin Klein and Nick Gruber ended their two and a half year relationship and now Nick has moved onto another man. An alleged mobster. The ex of the fashion designer states that he’s been approached by private investigators in both New York and LA asking questions about whether his new boy toy has a connection to notorious mobster Charles “Lucky” Luciano.

Nick says that his new boyfriend, Hollywood animator John Luciano, has nothing to hide and that he’s “moved on”. Allegedly Page Six reports that Klein hired the thugs to follow the new couple because he believes that, “Luciano and Gruber are involved in various unsavory business activities intended to embarrass him.”

While Nick has said that he’s going to write a book about their relationship and base a reality TV show around it. Hopefully more news will develop because since The Sopranos ended, we have yet to get our mobster fix. But this time it has a fashion connection which means we’re even more interested. Let’s hope no one has to go swimming with the fishes anytime soon, especially Calvin.
