Fashion designer Calvin Klein has reportedly lost his New York home for up to six months after superstorm Sandy devastated his apartment block in New York City.
The style mogul was forced out of his luxury triplex penthouse in Manhattan when the massive storm hit America's East Coast last week (ends04Nov12), and residents of the Perry Street building have now been told it could be months before their homes are deemed habitable again.
The basement has reportedly flooded, the elevators are broken, and the building's electrical system has also been damaged.
A source tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "All the mechanics for the buildings are underground and flooded. While his apartment was not damaged, the building is not habitable. Calvin was told they will be displaced for six months."
Former high-profile residents of the building, which was designed by star architect Richard Meier, include Jim Carrey, Hugh Jackman, Sir Paul MCCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills, and Nicole Kidman, who sold her apartment there earlier this year (12).
