Gruber, who has an on/off relationship with the fashion icon had recently reconciled with him.
A source reveals, “Calvin paid his rent two years upfront, and was just saying how happy he was in the relationship.”
Nick Gruber, 22, a model and former gay porn star, was accused of assaulting New Jersey college student Calvin Swint, 20, during the early morning brawl.
Gruber reportedly grabbed Swint’s genitals and seemed jealous, according to a prosecutor at Gruber’s arraignment on Tuesday evening.
The former porn star asked Swint “to go out in the hallway and, unprovoked, punched him in the face,” the prosecutor said.
Police took Nick into custody after a doorman called them to Gruber’s penthouse, where he was having a party.
Nick was fighting being handcuffed and was seen shoving something into his pants. Police later found a stash of cocaine in his underwear.
Gruber was arraigned on charges of assault, resisting arrest and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
The model was ordered to return to court August 9 and to stay away from Swint.
Swint told The Post he didn’t want to press charges: “I don’t want to be involved in any of this. We’re good friends, end of story.”
Swint added, “Everybody expects Nick to be somebody. He’s a great guy, he’s a funny guy — he’ll make it, he was talking about going to college. I’m absolutely not in a relationship with him. He’s like my brother, so if he was angry, I could understand why he could take it out on me. We all get depressed sometimes. I feel for him. No one else was on the balcony, just us. It happened, and then I left. I felt embarrassed . . . I’ve never been in a fight before. I went downstairs, and the doorman asked if they should call the police because my eye was bleeding . . . I’m sorry this happened.”
