Nate Berkus is apparently abandoning his Manhattan home for Hollywood after falling for Rachel Zoe's former assistant, Jeremiah Brent. According to the New York Post, the interior designer-turned TV star, 41, is so smitten with his new boyfriend, he has decided to relocate to the West Coast in order that they can be together. A source told the paper: 'Nate came to LA, bought a luxury Mercedes and saw a Hollywood Hills home and nabbed it all in the same day.' Indeed, the source acknowledges, now The Nate Berkus Show has been cancelled, Mr Berkus has little reason to stay in New York. He can actually run his design empire from LA. 'He’s been telling people now that he isn’t tied down with the show and his Target line has proven successful, he really can live anywhere,' the source said. 'Nate is inseparable from Jeremiah.' It first emerged that Mr Berkus and Mr Brent were dating in October. The news appeared to be confirmed after they were spotted kissing at a Barney's event in New York on December 5. 'They were kissing at the sunglass rack in the men's section,' a fellow guest told the Post. They were also seen together at a series of parties that week including a signing for Mr Berkus's new book, The Things That Matter, and a benefit for The Tyler Clementi Foundation. A tweet from Mr Brent following the latter event then indicated that the relationship was going from strength to strength. 'So proud @Nate_Berkus,' it read. 'Beautiful evening promoting truth, love and education http://www.tylerclementi.org. Love is love.' Mr Berkus, who tragically lost his partner, photographer Fernando Bengoechea, in the December 2004 tsunami while on vacation in Sri Lanka, was previously in a two-year relationship with Brian Atwood, which ended in 2009.
