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

28-nick-gruber

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. 


Calvin Klein's Ex-BF Announces He's Straight, Crashes Gay Party, Gets Kicked Out

Nick-gruber-hot1Take a look at Nick Gruber, and you may recognize him for a number of reasons. You may have seen his work as a fashion and fitness model, a gay porn actor, or simply Calvin Klein's former boytoy and train wreck. If so, then you should know that Gruber has enlisted the help of a new publicist, Matt Rich, to help erase most of that from your memory and brand him with a new squeaky-clean public persona. Gruber subsequently celebrated his newly-announced straighthood by attending a party thrown by porn-entrepreneur Michael Lucas on Fire Island over the weekend. Then, after reportedly telling people not to touch him, Gruber was kicked out of the event. 

Lucas gave his account of the event on his Facebook page:

"This weekend was "Ascension" - the biggest party of the summer on Fire Island. Every year I buy a large VIP tent that's up above the dance floor, where I invite my friends.

I saw this arrogant guy who was being rude to people, shoving two guys away after they bumped into him. I heard him say, "keep your hands away from me! I"m straight!" So I went over to him, and asked him why he was being so rude. 

He said, 'I am straight, and I don't want any gay people to touch me.' At which point, I told him 'you're leaving.' He said, 'do you know who I am?' I said, 'I don't know, and I don't even want to know who you think you are.'

Then he said, 'try me.' I said 'watch me'. I called over to security and had him hauled away without his feet even touching the floor. Then someone explained to me that this is the ex boyfriend of Calvin Klein, Nick Gruber, who just 'came out' as 'straight.'"

Calvin-klein-nick-gruberNot surprisingly, Rich released a different version of the incident to Gawker and Michael Musto on Gruber's behalf:

“Nick was the guest of Hal Rubenstein and David Nichols and wasn't familiar with how these mass events work in terms of ‘areas’ and VIP areas. Nick overreacted when he was told to leave one area. He is sending a private apology to Mr. Lucas. It was Nick’s first time at Fire Island, and he was glad to be there with several friends and support the cause.”

And as for Gruber's supposed aversion to phyisical contact with gay people? Rich explained that to HuffPost Gay Voices:

"After about the fifth guy grabs your ass, you say, 'Look, I'm not interested.' He apologized. He didn't know what kind of party this was going to be."

Gruber himself finally explained his reluctance to wear the "gay" label in his interview with Gawker:

"That’s false information. I don’t believe in labels, I believe in what my heart tells me I love. If people say, 'What are you?' I say, 'I’m not gay. I’m straight, but I believe in love.'"

Calvin Klein, Gruber's reported former "sugar daddy", has yet to comment on any of the latest controversy, instead opting to keep a low profile and finish building his mansion in Southampton by Labor Day, according to the New York Post


Nick Gruber is Back with Calvin Klein, Plotting Return to the Runway

Page Six chronicles the latest chapter in the Calvin Klein-Nick Gruber romance saga:

GruberSources tell us Gruber, a former erotic model, is preparing to move back from Los Angeles and restart his career. We hear he’s signed with Planet PR and is taking meetings with modeling agencies to walk the runways during September New York Fashion Week. Page Six reported in May that Gruber and Klein rekindled their relationship and took a Mexican vacation together. The couple had split in January 2012 after dating for two years, but after Gruber was arrested for assault and cocaine possession at his West Village apartment and completed a stint in an Arizona rehab facility — which Klein allegedly paid for — the troubled model fled to the West Coast. Gruber then lived with new boyfriend John Luciano, but they broke up in February, and Gruber has since taken up with Klein.


Calvin Klein Reconciles with Boytoy Nick Gruber

Calvin Klein and his boytoy Nick Gruber have reportedly patched things up, despite Gruber's threats to write a 'beyond shocking' tell-all about Klein and star in a reality show following their break-up.

GruberPage Six reports:

A source now tells us, “Calvin feels very protective over him. Despite all that has happened, and everything he’s done, he still loves Nick.” We’re told Klein flew Gruber to Mexico and the two met up at an exclusive resort there. The source added, “Calvin wants to keep it low-key.”

Another source said, “Nick and Calvin had been texting and met up at the Chateau Marmont [in Los Angeles] about a month ago. Nick and John broke up around February, but remained friends. John actually encouraged Nick to get back with Calvin. He thinks it would be helpful for him.”

A spokesperson for Klein said: “I can confirm they are friends and no more. There is no relationship whatsoever, but at the same time Calvin holds no grudges and has put whatever problems they had behind him.”
