Calvin Klein's Model Boytoy Nick Gruber Writing 'Beyond Shocking' Tell-All About Relationship: VIDEO

Calvin Klein's former boytoy Nick Gruber, who had a run-in with the law in April and subsequently entered a Klein-financed rehab session, is writing a tell-all about their relationship, the NY Daily News reports:

GruberThe 24-year-old male model plans to share all the sordid details, and a source tells us there are two strong offers on the table with a third one on the way. We reached out to Gruber and he confirmed he’s ready to tell his side of the story. “Yes, it’s true that I’m writing a book,” he said.

Gruber has tapped a well-known author to develop the book as they begin to flesh out the structure and chapters. The writer spoke with us anonymously, and called the content that will be revealed “beyond shocking.”

“This is the only way he can get closure,” he said of Gruber on the phone from Los Angeles. “He has a lot of secrets about Calvin and he has the right to tell people.”

After just two days of shopping the book — tentatively titled “What Came Between Me and My Calvin” — the offers started piling in.

“If it was just [Gruber’s] story, then there’s no way we could sell the thing, but because it’s about his relationship with this very private, very high-profile person, it’s generating a lot of interest,” said the writer.

TMZ cornered Gruber on the street last week and questioned him about their relationship.

  1. Yeah, that'll be worth reading. Should be 10 cents a copy on Amazon within a week.

  2. The only way he can get "closure"? I suppose when you hook up with trash you shouldn't expect much in return.

  3. Let me write a list of things I would find shocking about their relationship:

    Oh wait. I just did.

  4. I don't really think it'll be all that shocking, since the Internet already pieced together the details awhile ago: Gay-for-pay porn actor becomes gay-for-pay boytoy in exchange for dental caps and a new hairline.

    If we've learned anything from Hugh Hefner and his exes. Calvin will come out of this relatively unscathed, and Nick will just look even more like a tool.

  5. My bet is the book will never be published -- Klein will pony up enough cash to get Gruber to withdraw the project.

  6. The shocking part won't be that Gruber was gay-4-pay or a will be the long rumored info on Calvin and his sexual interests - kins, desired age of partners, fetish tastes. Those will prove to be juicy. Only hope that Gruber is prepared to back up his claims because Calvin will be ruthless with his legal hammer.

  7. Gay men treating each other like crap--what else is new in the world?

  8. When you say, "Nick Gruber is writing a book," what do you mean?

  9. Calvin has lied down with dog...and and has awaken with a nasty flea it seems.

  10. I am shocked that this guy knows how to write.

  12. Why is he being called a "male" model? What other kind could he be?
    If it were a woman, would she be called a "female" model?
    What kind of sexism is this?

  13. "“If it was just [Gruber’s] story, then there’s no way we could sell the thing."

    Ya got that right.

  14. Shocking to heterosexuals' ears. I don't care what kind of sex Calvin is interested in. I'm not sex negative. I don't think Calvin should pay him off to avoid it being published. People who are fine with sex and understanding of human sexuality won't look down on him. At the same time, I have to say to Calvin, this is what you get for worshipping heterosexual males and hooking up with one. There are a lot of Calvin Kleins in the gay community. Through stupidity and delusion they think heteros are the bees knees. Calvin could have found a gay man would was better looking, not interested in financial gain and humiliating him.

  15. You can put good money on the fact that this was all cooked up as a way to get a bit of press and money for Nick and that Calvin's people will approve every word of whatever book might result. (I'm sure TMZ just randomly ran into Nick and randomly managed to confirm Nick is staying sober, has Calvin's support, and maybe still likes women.) It's charming to see the PR system works like this for gays, too.

  16. "He has a lot of secrets about Calvin and he has the right to tell people." - This sentence is what is wrong with so many gay boys.

  17. First summer read for 2013!

  18. The only way he can get closure. And by closure, he means, of course, money. And who in hell is making offers on an unwritten manuscript by an unknown,uhmmm, "author?"

    Posted by: BobC562 | Aug 20, 2012 12:05:42 PM

  19. Sorry, but I don't feel bad for Calvin. So tired of these old whithered queens using money to buy and exploit poor (and often minority) people. How many of these queens fly off to countries like Brazil and the Dominican Republic to buy and exploit them?'s gross and disgusting...act your (considerable) age Calvin. Just desserts.

  20. I'm not happy about this or of any tell-all because they are only done for money and spite. I don't know why gay people do this to each repeatedly but we can be incredibly stupid.

    But Klein is at blame here too. We have older friends, some well known who have built amazing careers. When they arrive with a boytoy on their arm I can understand the desire but the stupidity coming from one who should be far wiser but whose pecker has more control then his brain never fails to amaze me. Yes, he was hot and twenty-two but he's taken the affair public and trashing your 50-odd year career down the tubes. Was it worth it?

    Posted by: OS2Guy | Aug 20, 2012 12:25:06 PM

  21. Yes, the only way he can get "closure" is to have somebody else write a book that he dictates to them so that he can make even more money exploiting a older, rich, famous gay man who was too stupid to realize what a slutty golddigger he was.

    I could go on....

  22. I think ""writing"" needs double quotes around it...ugh people like this deserve to never have sex again. Not saying that everyone that does gay for pay or has a relationship that exchanges sex for goods is awful, but this guy seemed scummy from the get-go. And yeah, I think ol CK is getting his comeuppance for idolizing what is at best a rocky endeavor (straight on gay mansex)

    Posted by: MaddM@ | Aug 20, 2012 12:31:45 PM

  23. He doesn't sound gay-for-pay to me. He sounds gay

    Posted by: Mike C. | Aug 20, 2012 12:37:07 PM

  24. Maybe 'humiliation' is one of CK's fetishes?

    "You've been such a naughty boy, Calvin. "

    Posted by: Commando | Aug 20, 2012 12:37:57 PM

  25. Considering all the potential choices for bf in the world, why would CK choose this guy? What would that tell us about him and the world he lives in? Other than that, there's hardly much of interest in this idea.
