UPDATE: Calvin Klein’s Ex-Boy Toy Gets No Jail Time For Bloody Nightclub Brawl
We’re shocked to learn that Nick Gruber, Calvin Klein’s salacious tell-all writing, cocaine-possessing, rehab-attending, and friend-punching 23-year-old on-again-off-again boyfriend was involved in a bloody brawl in a Hamptons nightclub this past weekend.
The New York Post reports that Gruber punched another man during an altercation at SL East nightclub in East Hampton, “causing a laceration over his right eye,” according to a spy. Following the incident, Gruber and the other guy were taken outside, where the model-cum-porn-star threw an SL security guard on the ground and ran. Police were called to the scene and a manhunt began for Gruber, who fled the scene.
Artin Bey Archer, Pink Elephant director of VIP relations, explained:
“It was a blood bath. The [other] guy had blood all over his face. I saw him on the ground, and he was . . . taken away in an ambulance. Nick left before around six police cars arrived. Around 20 police officers started a full-scale manhunt . . . using [flashlights] to search through the bushes.” Two SL busboys were seen mopping up blood after the incident.”
Gruber’s rep Matt Rich confirmed the spat, but claimed that Gruber was the real victim and was simply acting in his own defense:
“The guy pushed him first, then there was a bit more pushing. Nick punched him out of self-defense, and the guy suffered a cut above his eye. Nick is fine. Nick did not flee the scene, the club security told him to leave. There were no cabs, so he walked to the main road to find one. He has not been questioned by the police. Nick does not know the guy, nor does he know why the guy started pushing him. Unfortunately, when you are a well-known face, people target you for the wrong reasons.”
A local police spokesperson said there was no arrest record, and we’re just relieved to here that Nick is okay, because bloody assault aside, that’s all we really care about. He and Klein have a real shot at being happy this time around, and if something were to jeopardize that, it would be really devastating for us.
UPDATE: Page Six reports that Gruber voluntarily went in for questioning on August 2nd to answer questions about the altercation.
“Police saw my name in the Page Six story about the fight, and called me on Wednesday to say they wanted to interview Nick,” explained rich. “He voluntarily . . . spoke with the police for an hour, it was a friendly conversation, and he was not arrested.”
There you have it, folks.
