According To His Ex-Sugar Daddy, Nick Gruber Actually Is Straight & An Awful Lay

gruber-lucianoNick Gruberheterosexual man-whore and professional stunt queen — is certainly the man of the hour, and while his 15 minutes should’ve been up about 5 minutes into his rise fall to fame, he seems to have been caught by a giant safety net of shade fashioned by other, slightly more vicious queens. Case in point, 0ver-the-hill guttersnipe, John Luciano, the 49-year-old man Gruber has been linked to when he’s not slobbering over 70-year-old Calvin Klein.

Michael Musto interviewed Luciano for Gawker and let’s just say no one emerges unscathed. We needed a shower just after reading it. According to unlucky Luciano, Gruber is so straight he’d fuck Betty White — but, honestly, who wouldn’t? — and he just sleeps with men for the money, fur and jewels. In other words, Nick Gruber is exactly the person you thought he was, but the way Luciano savagely goes in on the 22-year-old, you can’t help but feel a twinge of sympathy for the kid.

Below are a few choice tidbits from the interview. Word of warning, it’s gonna get severe up in here.

On Nick ‘s passing acquaintance with the truth: “Despite his denying it in your interview, he was completely doing a book [on Calvin Klein]. I see humor in everything because he’s such an idiot.”

On Nick’s sexuality: “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.”

On how Luciano met Nick, while flouting the tenets of AA: “Once in a while, I’ll step in an AA meeting, and that’s where we met. Once a year I’ll get the urge to have an 8 ball and have a little fun. Then I’ll go to a meeting.”

On Calvin and Nick’s relationship: “Yeah, it was true love. Calvin was in love with his body and Nick was in love with the wallet.”

On how Nick lays the pipe: “The worst lover I’ve ever had!”

Honestly, we don’t know who’s a bigger piece of trash: Nick Gruber for pulling stunts even Evel Knievel wouldn’t attempt, or John Luciano for, well, being John Luciano. Head on over to Gawker for the entire interview — it’s a doozy.

    Lester this crush of yours is starting to get pathetic.

  • twoguysbrooklyn

    Your bf is str8 and an awful lay. Don’t you HATE when that happens…

  • Ottoman

    I’d take Betty White over any of these morons.

  • Stache1

    @twoguysbrooklyn: Yeah, but it says so much more about you when you think that’s just okey dokey. Guess the duchbag list got a little bigger today with BF # 2.

  • Stache1

    That picture speaks volumes not only about Grubber but how pathetic some gay men can be in general.

    He assumes he’s totally straight and only in it for the $ but that sure doesn’t stop him from chasing him, trying to make out with him, and parading the gold digger shit around town as his boy.

  • B Damion

    @2eo …I love

    It’s’s like, a gay soap opera. “The gays of our lives” or..or..”As the world turns so do the gays of our lives” lmao… it’s not that creative. But,hey,I’m having a laugh.

  • Stache1

    @Stache1: FYI not directed at you twoguysbrooklyn for the record:)

  • EJC

    Some one please tell me who the fuck cares !
    Enough is enough with this twink,
    let just ditch the bitch and get on with the real world!

  • ShowMeGuy

    If Nick Gruber is a heterosexual…….he’s doing it wrong.

  • AndrewIB

    Oh dear what a terrible mess this man is.

  • MK Ultra

    More PR trying to make Gruber “straight” and make him happen.

  • Rockery

    Fake drama, gay or straight one thing is for sure they are all attention whores

  • onahigh23

    No matter how deplorable Mr. Luciano is for his interview and his lack of discretion, and he is, the use of the term “over-the-hill” is unnecessary as he is only 49 and continues the rampant ageism that exists in our community. Why do we put our men out to pasture after 35?

  • Pablito12ny

    This obsession with deconstructing Nick Gruber in the media is pathological. Simply put, it’s mean-spirited and uncalled for. Why can’t people lay off? Is everyone jealous of what he is, has and stands for? Get the F over it. Live and let live. I’m sick of the ageism. I’m sick of the judgment. Our community is more diverse and open minded than that. Let’s all move on and allow him to do so as well.

  • Dev.C

    great! now can he finally be dropped as topic for discussion his irrelevance is beyond annoying at this point. I’m tired of seeing his name on things.

  • uwe233

    This Luciano guy looks kinda hot. Is there any pic where I can see his face? ;-)

  • mykelb

    Kick this wannabe diva to the curb, and stomp his neck.

  • GlitterKidder

    Guess I don’t need that lobotomy, my head just exploded. #GutterTrash

  • decampbell

    Who The F*ck is John Luciano?

  • bigeetah

    The shopping bags say it all….’Buysexuals’ are a dime-a-dozen (well, actually a bit more expensive than that!) They’ve been around ever since some queen made a buck and they are all the same. Some marry well and become good houseboys, until Daddy wants a new model. Others end up worse than what they started. It never changes.

  • Teleny

    Money Gruber is bisexual. He will hop into bed with anyone if he gets money. At least that’s what I’m getting from this soap opera.

  • nevereclipsed81

    he’s not getting 15 minutes of fame, he’s getting 15 minutes of embarassment. and hopefully he’s on minute 14. basically this kid is an idiot and he will never know how to be likable so we need to stop reading about him. he’s not even hot, he just fooled us into thinking he is because Calvin thought he was.

  • Nyruinz


    Exactly, why not find a hot gay man who can return the feelings!

  • Cam

    So his ex knows he lies about a lot of things, but it never occurred to him that he might be lying about his childhood to get sympathy?

    As for Gruber, wait a second….you mean that he WASN’T attracted to Klein?!!!!?? I’m in shock!

  • Polaro

    Actually, this interview humanized Nick for me in a way everything else has failed to do. This man I do understand. And the way John Luciano tells the story, I believe it. Life is complicated.

  • tdx3fan

    @2eo: Seriously, he is writing this in a way to protect the Grub, and misquoting the hell out of the article to do so. This story is about as “fair and balanced” as Faux News. Read the real interview, and the tone comes across drastically different.

  • tdx3fan

    @Stache1: Power, true power, power to bend any man to your will is a very powerful thing. I am not entirely sure if I had the chance to get the hottest straight boy in town (not Gruber… ewww!!) to worship my every move, just because I threw some excess cash that I really did not need for any other reason, I would be that entirely different.

  • tdx3fan

    @onahigh23: Same reason we call them obese when they weigh 40 pounds over the “desired” weight. We are a culture of lookism, sexism and ageism. We only really spend our effort to give hot people the time of day. I just recently went to Chicago’s Boystown, and seriously, all I could do is laugh at the stereotypes when they felt the need to look away simply because I did not measure up to their ideal of perfection. The truly sad part is that while they spend their money on A&F and Calvin Klein, I actually do things that matter with mine, and I would not have it any other way.

  • tdx3fan

    @Pablito12ny: Lets get this STRAIGHT (as straight as Grub). No one is rallying against Nick Gruber because he is in love with an older man and an older man is in love with him. Plenty of these couples exist, and most of them are not judged when there is real love involved.

    People are against the Grub because he is a homophobic asshole that is truly gay for pay and only dates older men because he knows they will take care of him. There is no love involved at all. This is similar to driving Anna Nichole Slutbone to suicide because of how truly awful of a person she was.

    A LOT of people have traumatic childhoods. Most of them do not grow up to be homophobic gay for pay sluts only in it for the money.

  • BlogZilla

    Most white guys are an awful lay. They know absolutely nothing about sensuality. Sex to them is a dick in a hole.

  • B Damion

    @BlogZilla ….OMG is that true?
    Say it aint so…..

    I live in Greenwich,Connecticut and all the white boys stare at my booty. This one white boy was so fine that I started talking to him but I have not done anything with him yet. I am scared. I have always wanted to play in the snow but was too nervous and now you tell me this? lol

  • Cam


    Usually people that comments like yours are bad in bed. Kind of like the way the biggest homophobes are usually giving blow-jobs to rent boys.

  • tdx3fan

    @B Damion: @Cam: @BlogZilla: To make such a blanket statement is insane. I have had really bad lovers of every single race and background. I’ve also had really good lovers of every single race and background. Yes, I am a slut, but at least I am good at being a slut, and I am white!

  • Cam


    I stated that Blogzilla was most likely bad in bed because normally people that make statements like his are overcompensating.

    Don’t lump my comment in with his…because if you do that must mean that you are bad in bed. lol

  • BlogZilla

    @Cam, no I’m basing it on my experience. Other races seem more comfortable with their sexuality compared to MOST of the white guys I’ve been with. They always act like they are overcommpensating or like sex is about as interesting or deep as going to the rest room. ANd they tend to act ashamed when it’s over with.

    Your assumptions are just as biased and generalizing as my assumption. Actually the best sex I’ve ever had was with a skin head who was white, but that was surprising and rare for me. I’m black.

    What you say about me is true about people that tell bad jokes and aren’t funny always claiming that the person that has to listen to their drivel has no sense of humor or can’t take a joke. No, the problem is the person telling the joke isn’t funny and has no talent.

  • BlogZilla

    (cont.) My last lover was white and couldn’t have sex unless he was drinking. What a sicko. I mean how insulting is that. It didn’t matter who he fucked, cause we had three ways, etc. Always had to drink, regardless

  • BlogZilla

    @B Damion: B Damion, go ahead go for it. Your experience may be different. There are some white boys out there that are really good, but most I’ve been with, the sexual talent seems to be lacking. Being black and sexy, you are the exotic sexual prize they really want, compared to the stiff, dull boring dudes of their own persuasion they have to deal with.

  • TommyBr

    @BlogZilla: Thank you BlogZilla. So, as a black man, are you saying it is OK if everyone judges people by their race? Or just you? Remember this the next time a cop pulls you over.

  • BlogZilla

    @TommyBr: I think people do that all the time, I’m not saying it’s right, but it’s what people do. Haven’t you ever heard this?, “Asians can’t drive worth a s#$!” I don’t think they are generalizing by the way.

  • mekaleka


  • gskorich

    plain and simple. if you have sex with a man and you are a man by definition you are a homosexual, money is not the point here.

  • OrchidIslander

    @gskorich: you’re joking, right? So, a straight man who, on one occassion, experiments with the same sex and never does it again is a homosexual? Your definition is way stringent and does not, at all, take into consideration the vast gray areas of many people’s sexuality.

    Did you really think about it?

  • Realitycheck


    >>I’d take Betty White over any of these morons.

    LOL, thank you, you just made my day!!!
