Nick Gruber: Calvin Klein Has Spies Watching Me

Former Calvin Klein boytoy Nick Gruber says that Klein has hired a private investigator to follow him around:

GruberFor the last month, Gruber says he and his boyfriend, John Luciano, have been tracked by a cop-turned-gumshoe. Gruber tells Confidenti@l that he believes the investigator, a well-known P.I., was hired by Calvin Klein to watch his every move.

But the investigator isn’t sleuthing around incognito. On Monday, Gruber says the private eye got in a scuffle with Gruber and his friends at Toy’s Avenue A Soundcheck party in the Meatpacking District.

He also says the investigator approached the former porn star’s table and began shouting about how Luciano is connected to the mob and being followed by Federal agents. Gruber says the gumshoe showed up to his hotel yesterday morning as well.


Luciano said Klein probably misses Gruber. “I understand what it’s like to be broken-hearted, and I’m sure Calvin’s heartbroken,” he said. “Nick’s a great guy.”

He said that neither he nor Nick will take legal action against Klein or anyone hired to follow them.

Especially if they're carrying cameras for a reality show.

  4. Well, I'm sure in a few years when his career booms because of his reality TV show that we'll all hate to love to watch, he can look back and thank Towleroad for contributing to the initial hype and press that put him on the map.

  5. Let's see, Nick is writing a nastygram tell-all, and he expects Klein to sit back ignore it? I am not surprised that a gumshoe is following him! This really is, as Jack says, a gay train wreck!

  8. I have to agree. This guy is even worth mentioning for what reason exactly?

  9. Is there anyone who doubts that Gruber is responsible for hiring a "private eye" to "trail" him and his reality-tv "boyfriend"?

    I mean, if the private investigator wasn't around, exactly what would the cameras be capturing for the "reality" show?

  10. Yawn. Does anyone really care at this point? His 15 minutes of "fame" are over.

  14. Meth is a helluva drug.

  15. Gumshoe? Really? What year is this, 1942?

    As for this whole topic, I think the above comments hit this right on the head. The attention you provide is the same that will turn him into a must-see trainwreck. Aren't we tired of riding people to their ultimate deaths---Princess Di, Anna Nicole, Lyndsey (within the year), etc.......

    Why would an smart blog support that? Oh, wait, click-thru-rates. This is a business afterall. Never mind.

  16. Now you know what KIWI is really about.

  17. Compare away to Anna N and Lindsay L, but shame on you for grouping Princess D with these losers...

  18. Looks like meth is making Money-Gruber paranoid again.

  20. I agree with all the above comments.

  21. Here's the deal Nick - when the 14 minutes of fame you have left are over, Calvin Klein will still be Calvin Klien and you'll just be some guy who got his rosebud tickled by and 69'd with a 69 year old guy.

  22. At least give us a better pic than the one you use. He looked real cute when he was in court.

  23. Who cares!

    Please Towelroad, don't become the TMZ of gay gossip for prostitutes!
