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. You guys honestly think Gruber is straight? Not buying that claim for a second. He's a typical gay, dumb twink who realized he could use his looks to get what he wanted, but needed drugs to mask the shame he felt in doing so. This is what we all get when we value looks over personality, kindness, humour and intelligence. Let this be a cautionary tale to sugar daddies and boy toys everywhere. Dating someone closer to your age is typically healthier and more likely to succeed. I have seen May/December relationships work, but they didn't also involve money and power, or were more about casual sex than a relationship.

  2. Chapter One

    "So, like, he was totes old and all but, like, he was also really rich and I got to live like a prince, and like, it was totes unfair that I consume ejaculate for a living, but, like, it's his fault because he's all old n'stuff and if he wants me to stick around he needs to let me spend his money"

    There. I just saved the world time and money. You're welcome.

  4. Must have fallen behind in his rent. That happens to former rent boys. I predict same-day bargain-bin at Barnes&Noble for this book.

  5. Hmmm, what happens to the throw-away hustlers of rich gays? Well, this . . .

    I'm sure Calvin's already gone thru 10 million more blonde 22-year-old gold-digging twinks since kicking this one to the curb. Old news. This is his thing -- he's been doing this for a zillion years.

    This one should be cruising round Wall Street to look for a rich finance daddy. He's only got a year or 2 left to sell his ass & then it's over & certainly Calvin wouldn't go near him. He'd say, "Over 22? Ew, nevah!"

    I do kinda hope he has something new to tell bout Calvin but I doubt it.

  6. Read fast, because this guy will self-destruct within a couple of years. "Nick who?"

  7. Silly don't fall in love with rough trade. He tried to have a gay version of "Pretty Woman" and failed.

  8. With Elton John off partying with Dolph Lambert (and others), the boytoy market seems to be thriving. I am jealous because I would like to get naked with Dolph too. No, not the Dolph on my TV, the Dolph in person! Nick Gruber not so much. Well, not at all.

  9. Can you say Media Whore? i think that there should be a sitcom about two hustler media whore boys who broke up with their well known partners... FOX could produce it. It could star Gruber, of course, and the queen of the Media Whores, Beau Breedlove of Portland mayor banging fame... They could call it... wait... WHORESING AROUND. I know Beau could probably use the money. He's not been in the public eye for some time.

  10. Let's see, Calvin Klein paid for:

    1) new hair
    2) new teeth
    3) a bubblier butt (implants)

    "Oh, how sharper than a serpent's tooth......."

  11. Oh please ( actually lets go retro and say Oh Mary!) This male bimbo just needs the money because his sugar granddaddy is no longer paying the bills ( perhaps his book can become an HBO movie with Kellan Lutz)

  12. Maybe he and Marc Jacobs rent boys can get together and do a tell all on all the things we already know. Rent boys and men with a lot of money do some shady things. Big deal and frankly there is nothing that Calvin Klein or Marc Jacobs would do behind closed doors that would shock or make me want to buy and read about.

  13. nick gruber is as gay as the day is long. The term gay for pay is often used on porn models to market them.

    klein went out and leased himself a rent boy. the lease is up, now the rent boy is writing a book (haha, more like someone else is taking his drug fueled ramblings down for him)

    there is nothing new or shocking about any of this. it's only novel in some peoples eyes because it's a boytoy and not a trophy wife.

    also, the crack about klein exploiting nick.

    It's only exploitation if they don't agree to it, or don't benefit. this was a mutually beneficial arrangement for both of them. Don't go saying bad things about klein just because of his age.

  14. does anyone have a link to all this information about g4p etc? i'd like to read it

  15. It is uncanny how much Gruber trying to play straight acts like Ryan Phillipe.

  16. Good for him. I hope the book is successful and he makes a lot of money.

  17. But I thought their love was real!

  18. Does anyone remember when Calvin married a model-(female!) named Kelly? I think there were kids.
    What was that all about? It was obvious that Calvin was gay.
    Why so much uproar now?

  19. He's just a shady, untrustworthy little s#it who is using Klein's name to make money.

    Calvin Klein is stupid enough to put himself in this position so I have no sympathy.

  21. I hate to admit it, but that picture is pretty smoking hot as far as twinkie types go. I can definitely see why Klein decided to Nick Gruber into his own personal Pygmalion/Eliza Doolittle project.

    I've heard fabulously wealthy gay men in New York can and do all sorts of depraved things involving power, humiliation, control, S & M, etc.--read some Ethan Mordden, or Larry Kramer's "Faggots," which described a remarkably seamy orgy at a posh apartment where everyone more or less loses their minds while jacked up on testosterone, poppers, and cum. (Supposedly Arthur Laurents screamed at Kramer on the street one day that he should "Stop giving away all our secrets!" Kramer's hatred of the extremes of the gay scene infused not only that novel but also "The Normal Heart.")

  22. For a Florida white trashy boy, he should be happy his teeth are fixed and look great now. He got as much as he gave. Time to move on. If he wants "revenge" for no longer being with CK, he should be happy to know how pathetic Calvin looks now that he "came out" by simply buying himself a young whore who could be his grandson.

  23. I hope it's as good as Behind The Candelabra. You need a lot of dirt to sell that book. I'm hoping for tales of glass coffee tables and sleeping with his eyes open. Whatever, I'll read it. So will everybody else.

  24. He looks like an expert in wearing high heels.

  25. Who exactly would be in the market for this book? Straight people wouldn't care much to hear of the sexual relations between a twink and his daddy...and most gay men below the age of 40 probably don't want to hear about sex with a daddy either.
