This is what happens when you date whores, you stupid old queen.
"You wanna know what came between Nick Gruber and his Calvin? Everything — and soon everyone will know.
Gruber, our own Nate Freeman has learned exclusively, is writing a tell-all book about his tumultuous two-year relationship with Calvin Klein , and after just days on the market it’s incited a bidding war in the publishing world.
The 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.
Klein, 69, created a stir when he took up with the 20-year-old Gruber in 2010. (He divorced Kelly Klein in 2006.) The couple went on a break this past January, and seemed to have called it quits for good when Gruber was arrested for assault and cocaine possession in April.
Since then, Gruber has completed a reportedly Klein-financed stay at the high-end Meadows rehab center in Arizona, pled guilty to the charges in a Manhattan court, got hit with a sentence of 20 days community service, and left for Los Angeles, where he now lives.
In a possible preview of what he plans to publish, Gruber took to his Facebook profile in May to share the news that he was leaving rehab a changed person.
“I don’t want to go back to my old self,” he wrote. “I want to focus on my future.” One departure from his old self could be a new interest in the opposite sex. He was photographed making out with Chelsea Heath — who was named 2010’s Hottest Girl in America by “Girls Gone Wild” — in Marina Del Rey, and we saw him last week at SoHo restaurant RSVP with another girl who identified herself as “Nastia.”
When reached, a spokesperson for Klein declined to comment."
He pays for your rehab and this is how you repay him? Sketchy.
I wonder if he is going to talk about his peers and their sugar daddies.
I won't be terribly shocked if dear Nicky has an "accident" soon.
Sounds like a fabulous idea. This is a story people need to know the other side of.
The Gay Mafia doesn't tolerate snitches.
How well written could a book by a 24 year old male model be?
Who buys these? What happened to having 6 installments in a magazine?
He is the walking definition of "whore."
This will make his fortune! Everyone desperately wants to read a memoir by the discarded boytoy of a faded and forgotten former fashion superstar.
I doubt this book ever comes to fruition. Nick has very little money, no education, and his he was cut out of Klein's social circle. He's hoping CK will pay him to go away.
Don't you have to know how to write first in order to write a book?
R9 I agree with you, he is just trying to shake some more money out of Calvin. I bet he already blew through his severance pay.
Yep, he's just wanting $$ from Calvin. A LOT of money.
Can't say I blame him.
So Nick got through rehab a changed man, and now he wants to spill about the man that paid for rehab.
R6 and R10 were too busy being snarky to read the rest of the story:
[quote] 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.”
So, r14, the answer to my question would be "No--you just hire someone who CAN write to write it for you."
Any AA can tell you little Nicky's behaviour is 'unsober.' Guess he didn't get much from Meadows Rehab. Likely tooting this minute.
That must have been some powerful foreskin, for Calvin to risk so much.
Do you actually believe that R14?
An old fool is a regretful fool.
[quote}“This is the only way he can get closure,” he said of Gruber on the phone from Los Angeles.
I assume the lawyer did that interview over the phone because he couldn't be seen to say “This is the only way he can get closure” and keep a straight face.
I'm sure it'll end up ghost-written by one of those jobbing writers they get to do those true crime paperbacks or something -
Most of the 'celebrity' books are written by ghost writers or editorial efforts - this'll be no different to that.
Excewpt I;m thinking they may have to watch what names are named, etc - sure some very wealthy heavy hitters are involved - so unless there is solid proof to back up the whore's claims - can see libel laws causing consdierable discomfort not far up the line...
The title: Repulsive: Diary of Calvin Klein's Whore
You actually believe that he has a "well known author" and that he has big money offers from publishers?
You are naive.
Calvin Klein is so gross and embarrassing.
Desperately hanging on to youth that is long gone. I couldn't get it up for him with a crane. I'm amazed this guy could.
maybe he didn't. maybe he just played with asstoys while Cal-Cal jerked off. Or sat on his face.
Who could have predicted that Nick Gruber would be such an ungrateful little whore?
[quote]How well written could a book by a 24 year old male model be?
Apparently you missed the part about a "well-known author" doing the writing part.
[quote]“This is the only way he can get closure,” he said of Gruber on the phone from Los Angeles.
I think he meant to say "money," not "closure."
[quote]Gruber has tapped a well-known author
How interesting for Nick. Usually it's the other way around.
I feel the need to post this little item every time this trash pops up.
[quote]Apparently you missed the part about a "well-known author" doing the writing part.
I doubt he even has that. I don't think there are many people wanting to read about Calvin Klein and his hooker.
Sorry to be a contrarian but 'packages' like this are common someone else wrote Sarah Palin's books, Levi's book, and on and on. Ethan Hawke's novels were 'tweaked' heavily; 'pop' novels and autobios are often 'polished' by writer-editors for hire.). There are lots of writers with experience putting books together who need money (even highly praised writers don't make a fortune). Publisher(s) would want to be sure whore had a story to tell, was willing to be candid, and that ghost could shape the anecdotes and spin them into about 65,000 words. Of course lawyers would read various drafts to be sure that wording was careful. But American libel laws are a joke and since there's proof that there was an intimate relationship between Calvin and whore and probably records of contacts with other big names, the book could be racy without being risky. Most books lose money but it might be a bet that seemed worth it to a few people.
Not saying I know this report is gospel but it's not inevitably improbable.
Why not just call it "The Whore Speaks"?
Between love and madness...lies, depression.
I actually feel bad for Calvin in this case. He tried to help the kid, who is desperately trying to cash in.
And, r22, for an old guy, he doesn't look that bad. Except for what look like cheek implants. I wonder what he would look like if he'd kept it natural.
R34 you are ignoring the fact that outside of gay gossip blogs and a few mentions on commercial tabloid websites, there isn't much of a story to tell and no one gives a shit. How many books do you really think he's going to sell? There isn't much to sell and I doubt besides a few gay rags his book would get any traction with the press nor would there be much of a promotional book tour.
Andy Cohen is in talks with Gruber for a show!!
He can't have all that much of a story to tell, so a book wouldn't be very interesting. But I might want to flip through the pictures section - unless he includes that pic we've all seen of those 2 tongue-kissing on the street. Just thinking about that one still turns my stomach.
Was Nick or Calvin the bottom?
The whole thing is so tawdry and vulgar, but it's not like Calvin Klein wasn't generous to this putrid little white trash whore. He got him dermatological treatment to clear up his gross skin, a nosejob and a brand new set of teeth that was desperately needed. Check out the before and after, especially those chompers that could've mowed the lawn in the before pic.
Maybe this sordid little episode will propel Calvin back into the arms of a woman.
"Was Nick or Calvin the bottom?"
Nothing comes between me and my Calvin's double headed dildo.
That little whore made me feel ten feet tall!
Calvin is a pig bottom
That's what you get when you pick up trash and let it stink up your place.
I bet Harvey Levin is fucking her now.
What's he need closure for? If he's doing a tell all, he wasn't really invested in the "relationship" to begin with.
Of course there's absolutley no interest from the public in such a book so it's pretty clear this is bullshit. Tough call for Calvin though, do you pay him off before he writes a book filled with plenty of lies or do you call his bluff and see if this book actually shows up?
Why would any female want to have sex with Gruber the Loser! The guy is a pig and a low life! I think Gruber the Loser is claing a bluff. I think Gruber the Loser is blackmailing Calvin. However, I don't like Calvin in the least because I think he is gross! I remembered Calvin was being interviewed about his models and Calvin said, those young male models look sooo delicious! He just sounded like a sleazy creep!
heard Judy Bloom is the author in question. Yes, really.
Why doesn't/didn't CK just give him a few million in hush money? It's a drop in the bucket for him, so why is he being such a cheap bastard?
Rich 60 y/o celebrities don't get to fuck 20 year olds without paying the piper. And no....a new nose, dermabrasion and some dental work won't cut it.
Clearly Gruber had nothing going for him which was why he was fucking Calvin Klein.
And after the surgery and makeover he still looks like a tacky loser. Klein should've bought himself a pair of glasses instead.
Please, who is going to want to read the chapter entitled "Rimming Calvin Klein"?
I think the book would kill Klein's already shot image if it includes a chapter called 'How that bastard gave me AIDS'.
Is this the guy that did both gay and straight porn?
his new teeth look great.
Shut Up Kelly Klein you fag hag
What a trash heap! Don't bite the hand that fed you, Nicky.
I'm guessing it's not just the dirt on Calvin Klein he's selling but gossip about other celebrities and their whores. Being a golddigger is a major American fantasy and since the Andrew Cunanan rampage there hasn't really been a high-profile story about a gay golddigger in the mainstream media. If he's got stories to tell about the Velvet Mafia, all the better.
Thank you Judy Bloom.
Legal blackmail...'tis all...
Nick will 'conveniently' be discovered to have had a relapse, and OD before that book gets started . Guys like Klein don't like to be threatened, or blackmailed, or made fools of . You mess with the Velvet Mafia, you have an accident, or disappear, or die. Believe me , it happens more than you think.
[quote]outside of gay gossip blogs and a few mentions on commercial tabloid websites, there isn't much of a story to tell and no one gives a shit.
How very wrong you are. Bet this kid has lots of gossip on a variety of people, not just CK. Plus the humiliating story of an aging diva hooking up with a trashy porn actor 1/3 his age is salacious enough to amuse the hungry hordes. People LOVE to watch the mighty fall.
Sounds like a few people on this thread might be a touch threatened by what could be revealed in that book.
Who cares what this dirty little gay-for-pay has to say?
Anyone who would sue this kid for libel is a fool. The law suit would generate 100 times the publicity.
What in the world would CK have to hide?
R67, he is NOT gay for pay. He is bisexual.

Like who? Fashion types or behind the scenes people? No one gives a shit about those people and neither Klein or his hooker were hanging out with A list stars. Hon you really over estimate how much people actually care.
[quote]Sounds like a few people on this thread might be a touch threatened by what could be revealed in that book.
Sounds like a few dumb queens might be delusional about how much people care about an aging fashion designer and his hooker. Gruber's story is a article in the National Enquirer not a book.
Does anyone know exactly what Klein saw in Gruber? Could it be just a big dick?
Considering what Calvin Klein could probably get or buy, Gruber doesn't strike me as all that attractive before or after.
Is Gruber considered hot?
Well you can tell just by this thread that such a book would sell. Calvin has been dating hookers for decades, during his "marriages" etc. He has made a fool of himself for years with substance abuse related behavior. He started having extensive plastic surgery in his early 30s.
I got to know him and his good friend Chester Weinberger in the mid 70s. I was a kid but I knew a mess when I saw one even then. Calvin did not want to be who he was- which I am sure drove him to his success. I never believed a word he said including "and" and "the". I spent a lot of time trying to get a model friend of mine at the time (also a troubled fellow) away from Calvin because I thought he was such bad news. All that said- you have to respect his success.
I say all this because I believe that a reasonably smart, stable grounded person would stay away from someone like Calvin- and I mean from 1975 forward. This kid is just one of a long line of you use me I use you relationships between deeply troubled people- perhaps Kelly Klein is an exception- but she certainly used Calvin- very effectively.
Good of him to pay for his rehab- Calvin has been in and out of recovery over the years so he knows all about it. A book like this could blow the lid off creeps like Barry Diller- and at least make real good gossip. Isn't that what DL is all about? This kind of scandal is "milk and cookies" for Calvin.
He's uncut, R72.
R73 What secrets about Barry Diller? He is a known Queen with his hunt for young dick....
He has no power
This book sounds horrible and tawdry. When can I order a copy?
He'll get more money from the book then from CC. OTOH, maybe CC needs to put him on the payroll with the stipulation he never sees or hears from or about him again.
THEN make him have an accident.
It's CK, not CC, R77. And, yeah, an "accident" would be a great idea because absolutely NO ONE would suspect the guy who's being blackmailed.
Given that he also met Ann Wintour I think he sealed his own fate with this announcement.
I wonder if Mr. Gruber has a "Plan B." You know, like what the fuck he's going to do with the rest of his life once he blows through this extortion money. Does this kid have any education, any real work experience? His mediocre and rapidly failing looks are only going to get him so far.
Oh wait, he's a whore and whores don't think of long range plans.
Carry on, turd blossom.
R80, a couple million in hush money is a lot more than he would get with a PhD in this economy.
OK, R70--who cares was this dirty little bisexual has to say about anything?
r82, I don't know, maybe - just maybe - the ones making money with the Calvin Klein brand? How about the ones - like us - who lap this kind of tell-all up like it's liquid gold?
You had no right to use my life for your book, to twist facts so that beautiful, sacred love became so much tawdry trash! "Calvin: Story of a Rectal Prolapse" is nothing but a vulgar collection of perverse sexual acts that are sheer and utter FILTH!
Blanche Devereaux - Klein
Take care, dearest Nick. Accidents do happen from time to time.
Gruber is totally expecting Calvin Klein to be the highest bidder for him to NOT sell the story. Probably will get the check when he signs a paper that he won't participate in any published books or articles about Calvin for about 30 years.
Those rentboys aren't as dumb as you think, Calvin. Sometimes the tell tales out of school.
Joey Stefano (sorry about that David Geffen !!)
Just a photo of Klein's face tells a far more gruesome story than any words that could be committed a page.
Gruber met a lot of famous people through CK. Calvin probably would be concerned with Gruber blabbing about the friends. That could add to the money offer.
You are completely judgmental, OP. Is it really necessary to call him an old queen? You lonely, no account assholes need to mind your own business.
[quote]Ethan Hawke's novels were 'tweaked' heavily....
Noooo! Say it isn't so!
"heard Judy Bloom is the author in question. Yes, really."
What will the title be? "Whorever"? "Grubber"?
Wow, this bit of gossip is really hitting a nerve of some "old queens" around here.
But, R70, can I please imagine him as "gay-for-pay"? Bisexuality and homosexuality is gross.
Gay Man on DataLounge
Am I the only one that thinks dirty Nick looks like CK's grandson? And if Nick can make a good talk show guest, then there's a lot of silly fraus that would buy it just to find out about the "destruction" of America.
Wow R92 has a thing for plain looking rentboys with cankles. Run along and clean the skidmarks out of your muumuu.
[quote]"heard Judy Bloom is the author in question. Yes, really."
[quote]What will the title be? "Whorever"? "Grubber"?
"Are You There God? It's Me, Male Prostitute"
Charlie thee were hundreds of replies to the John Edwards/Rielle Hunter affair, it didn't translate to book sales for Hunter. Unless CK socialized with people on the level of Pitt/Jolie, I don't think people would be that interested.
Hmmm, not really a good comparison, R97. Hunter's book involves people in politics, which is boring to begin with, and there wasn't any dirt on anyone besides John and Elizabeth Edwards (snore). I guess it really depends on what the big "secrets" are and who they involve.
Most of you whores would go down on Nick Gruber in a second if you had the chance.
Actually R98 it is. The list of real celebrity autobiographies that have bombed is large. Again, unless he has good dish on people that everybody knows (Pitt/Jolie, TomKat, etc...) no one is going to care. Gruber planted the story himself, just as he set himself up being photographed kissing a girl in LA a few weeks back. He's running out of $$ and is looking for a big payday from Klein quick.
No one bought the book that Hugh Hefner's ex girlfriend wrote about being one of his blonde bimbos despite the fact that the TV show the remaining girls were on was a hit at the time and there were thousands of messages and discussions written about them and the show.
To answer the earlier poster, Nick would be a lousy talk show guest. He's quite unattractive. And stupid. And mainstream shows won't touch the guy with a 40-foot pole.
And it's not as though people would enjoy thinking about what it's like in the sack with Calvin.
It's just gruesome.
I hope his Crayola box has a sharpener.
A tell-all book from Calvin Klein's former boytoy would have sold very well in 1987, but this is 25 years later. Calvin Klein is a figure form yesterday.
Posters just don't get it. MOST books flop. Most novels flop (particularly those not in a popular genre). Most serious non-fiction flops. Most collections of short stories flop. Most biographies and autobiographies flop. Most cook books flop. Most books about UFOs and psychic phenomena flop. If this report is true, it will not be a surprise if the resulting book flops. However, publishers still buy manuscripts, and still buy packages (author's story shaped by ghost and editor). Whether anybody on this thread would buy such a book doesn't matter. The hope is that out of all the books published in a given season, a FEW will catch on and become modestly profitable, nearly always for reasons no one can really explain.
R104 read R103.
Could the famous author be Stephen King?
Or has someone dug up Jacqueline Susann?
IF it's just about Calvin Klein, there won't be a lot of interest. If it includes a lot of info about other famous people at Klein parties and gatherings, it could gain an audience. During the time they were together, it's not as if Calvin was out with a lot of name friends while Nick stayed at home. The kid met a lot of people.
The whole thing of Klein showing this trashbag around and introducing him to the likes of Anna Wintour would make it worth reading imho. I can't wait for reading stuff like how he was treated by Klein's friends and associates and how he writes trash about them. I hope for something in the sense of that scene in First Wives' Club with Dame Maggie Smith and Sarah Jessica Parker.
But of course the public is supposed to not show interest in any way in order for Klein and his handlers to negotiate a smaller sum of money for Gruber's silence.
Nick should try that "semi celebrity" poses for Playgirl schtick. It would be the first time he was fully nekkid after all the work Calvin paid for.
I hear they pay $ 20 or so ......
I'd read it especially if it's anything like R108 describes.
I have heard the Anna Wintour crowd are a bunch of snobby jerks. Also, I have read that Anna Wintour is a major bitch who thinks she is hot stuff! I think she is really over ratted in her attire and she is a complete joke. Honey? she doesn't come close to the legendary and the true pinnacle queen of class, Babe Paley!!!
Tell All coming soon. From Gruber's own lips:
""Calvin taught me how to roll my sleeves"
"I was the first man [Calvin] fell in love with,"
I don't know why, but there's, like, something about me that attracts everyone. I have a nickname called Romeo. I get every girl, and even guys. Something about me draws them all in."
"Paradoxically, even though Gruber had an "exclusive" relationship with Klein for two-and-a-half years, he insists he is straight. There's no doubt that sex is his currency."
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
