Nick Gruber's Ex, John Luciano, Speaks Out on Calvin Klein, and Gay-for-Pay


Recently, ex-Calvin-Klein-boy-toy Nick Gruber had a few interesting announcements to make, such as him being "mostly straight" but "believing in love". They're part of a new PR campaign launched by him and his new publicist, Matt Rich, to clean up and re-invent the model's image. That was, until John Luciano, another one of Nick's ex-sugar daddies, picked up the phone and called Michael Musto at Gawker. In Gruber's first interview with Musto, he denied ever dating Luciano. This statement obviously didn't sit well with Luciano, who had a few things to say about the model who previously totaled his $100,000 BMW.

"Whatever crap Nick was smoking when he gave you that interview, I had to laugh. I had to set a couple things straight. We dated for nine months and we’re still friends. I was having lunch with him in Beverly Hills the day the article came out. ...I see humor in everything because he’s such an idiot...

"I’m not sure what he’s trying to do—modeling, whatever, that’s great. But why lie?...everyone knew we were dating. Page Six came out to my family’s house and did a whole spread on it. Can I tell you the riddle about Nick? He’s straight. He had a very fucked up, abusive childhood— horrific, practically worse than a cattle dog—and most women are not going to take care of him, so he turns to the company of gay men for support, paternal love, mentoring, and all those things. At the end of the day, if he can choose between sleeping with Zac Efron and Betty White, he’s going to choose Betty White, because that’s the way he is. When he went back with Calvin, Calvin should have just let him sleep with women, and he would have been fine. He’s gay for pay, and that’s what it is."

And his opinions on Gruber's relationship with Calvin Klein?

"Calvin was in love with his body and Nick was in love with the wallet. And there’s nothing wrong with that. I date younger guys, and as long as it’s legal, it’s OK, but I don’t fool myself."

It's not exactly clear how Luciano's little tell-all is going to affect his friendship with Gruber. Although, if porn entrepreneur Michael Lucas is to be believed, Gruber supposedly doesn't want gay people touching him anymore.

  2. "I date younger guys" ALL gay men do that. Nothing new there.

  3. Like food at the supermarket, young and sexy has an expiration date. Some people don't get that.

  4. I am sooo tired of the NYC press and blogs all over this dude. He has zero substance. Yet he's all over the place. His new pr rep is certainly earning his keep. Nick, get an education, get a job, get off the gravy train.

  5. It all reminds me of Gladys Glover:

  7. I think that senior citizens dating or pursuing young men is gross regardless of grandpas bank account balance. It frankly freaks me out. 2-5 year age difference is one thing....10 or more or going for Twinkies when you taking Centrum Silver??? Its
    embarrassing, repulsive and vampirish.

    He's not your friend, you old pervert. He's a prostitute, you're a john. He's selling you a Boyfriend Experience, and you're happily paying his bills for the privilege. But a real relationship? You idiot.

    He's younger. Like the straight guys who say 'my girlfriend is 19!' or 'my girlfriend weighs less than 100 pounds!' or 'my girlfriend is Asian!/Blonde!' Doesn't matter what the object looks like, matters what the object represents to the trick.

  11. *rolls eyes* This was only ever interesting for the comic value. It was a slight chuckle at best and that ended long ago. Why America is so fascinating by trashy people who aren't the best looking, not smart, not funny and not at all entertaining is beyond me. Maybe he can have a reality show following the Kardassians. He's about at their level of bland trashiness.

  12. I have to admit that I have all of Nick Gruber's gay adult movies and in each one he goes solo - even in groupings where everywhere is doing everything, Gruber does nothing other then offer his uncut and rather small (for being a porn star) penis for oral pleasure. He doesn't kiss other guys or perform anal, he is just there. Luciano is right. He is little more than gay for pay and quite honestly, not worth the time to view unless it is simple curiosity.

  13. Seriously, these stories are far, far, far past their 15 minutes. Among any and all of the Nick Gruber towleroad stories I've ever read, one thing I can never remember reading in the comments: "oo, wow, that was really interesting. I want to hear more!"

  14. who gives a crap about this himbo?

  15. Can we just put Nick Gruber and everyone associated with him on a rocket to the Sun? Mankind would be better off for it.

  16. ALL of these "People" need to just go away. We need to pull a Chelsea Handler and put a gag order on what I now assume is Herpes Simplex 3.

  17. I love Nick Gruber.

  18. @mike67: Which bimbo? Gladys Glover?

  19. Wow, not a lot of pity here for Nick. I was hating on him like all the rest of you but now I have compassion for him. It's easy for you all to tell him to just get over it. I have known people from troubled backgrounds and it isn't that easy.

    What is easy is for anonymous people to type cold heartless messages on their computer screen. Cruelty comes too easily. May you all never be judged as you judge others. We're all damaged in some way. What's yours?

  20. WHO CARES?! This just sounds like some dramatic love triangle. This is not affecting anyone except these select people's egos.

  21. Double deep fried hot mess with extra sauce please!!!

  22. What Zeta said. He's a hustler, not a 'friend'. And he better have some back up plan because his hustling his body days are numbered.

    I would say the same thing if he was a woman. A hustler is a hustler.

  23. Gruber isn't "fugly", nor is he all that handsome in my opinion. I live in a college town and see guys hotter than he is every single day on the street and in the local shops.

    Gruber is a male prostitute with very serious issues. If Luciano is correct about Gruber's desire for paternal attention, then Klein, Luciano, et al are exploiting this guys troubled psyche and should be ashamed. Friend? No indeed, friends don't treat each other as a commodity to be passed around for a good time or prurient pleasure. Gruber needs professional help. He is to be pitied, not hated or exploited.

    I hope he gets the help he truly needs before his life ends in a real tragedy. Unless things change and he gets help, I think his life or maybe someone else's will end very badly.

  24. Valentin: I'm with you. The hate and vitriol on this site is just awful. Everyone acts like he is a predator. He is just a mixed up kid who got involved with a bunch of older guys. This Luciano sounds like a real charmer doesn't he? What a pig. He makes me feel sorry for Nick Gruber. If everyone knows whats going on on the front end then no one can complain when things do not work out. I wish him well. Everyone deserves to be happy and to be able to make a living any way they can. Leave him alone. The New York tabloid press just sucks!

  25. I remember pics of Gruber from his porn days with yellow corn teeth with big gaps - yeah Calvin paid for an overhaul and bigger butt implants but I know what's under all that plastic and porcelain. Yechhh.
