Michael Lucas Kicked Nick Gruber Out Of Fire Island Party For Being Aggressively “Straight”

gruberWell, queer we are, kids. It’s Monday morning and Nick Grubernoted heterosexual, former gay porn star and (most famously) Calvin Klein’s on-again-off-again-gay-again boy toy — is already making headlines. This isn’t news so much as just juicy gossip from one queen to another. And that queen is gay porn impressario Michael Lucas. Make sure your emergency flashlight is charged ’cause the shade is about to fly.

Lucas attended Fire Island‘s annual Ascension Party — where, he notes, he buys “a large VIP tent” and invites his friends to party and bullshit. Not only did Gruber not receive an invite, he apparently also missed the memo that Fire Island is gayer than a 22-year-old boy dating a 70-year-old man for fur and jewelry, leading to this lovely story Lucas so graciously shared via Facebook:

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.”

I have never heard about this guy before and had no idea what he looked like. I’ve never read any of the gossip that supposedly surrounds him. So, I guess he came to a gay party to let everyone know he is “straight.”

For an allegedly straight guy Nick Gruber sure has stunt-queening down to a science.

    Maybe Gruber should come out as a “buysexual” & end this grubby mess!

  • philipj999

    Shame on the nobody for playing the ‘do you know who I am’ card. When someone says that the proper response is always, ‘No, I do not’. Even if you do. Congrats to ML for doing the right thing. Although I still think ML is a major asshat most of the time.

  • Cam

    LOL!!! If “Do You Know Who I Am?” didn’t get Reece Witherspoon out of a ticket, it’s sure not going to do anything for this guy.

    But also….

    1. The guy did gay porn, he would know who Lucas is since he probably auditioned for the guy, so pretending he didn’t know this was a gay party is beyond idiotic.

    2. You would think with all his money Klein could find a polite hooker.

  • B Damion

    I wish the very worst kind of diarrhea on you Nick Gruber. Please get a real job and for god sake GO AWAY!

  • Caleb in SC

    @Cam: “Polite hooker?” Lol!!! The whole “hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold” thing only exists in Westerns.

  • iMort

    I am quite sure that there are plenty of sweet well mannered pretty boys out there just waiting to be snatched up by some altruistic rich queen. Why, anyone, would put up with a selfish abusive prima donna is beyond me. No-one is that hot. It is a rather sad comment on our community when we let these little B**ches run roughshod over our lives just because their beauty makes us feel better about ourselves. Like older straight men and their trophy wives. If these guys had no money they would be utterly alone. How many older gay men do you know with hot young lovers???

  • Kangol


    LOL! Excellent wit!

  • KentonForshee

    “I don’t know, and I don’t even want to know who you think you are.”

    That’s such a brilliant reply. Good for him.

  • Dev.C

    Calvin Klein could do so much better, and good for Michael Lucas kicking that asshole out.
    And why should Michael care who Gruber is? Lucas has a gay porn Empire? what does Gruber have other than a
    annoying personality and bad skin?

  • Caliban

    OK, fine. He’s “straight.” He just sells his services to wealthy men.

    That’s SO much better!

  • pierre

    Straight to bed, that is.

  • Stache1

    I think Queerty and the commentators here are being mean and cruel to Gruber. He probably hates having to go there being that he’s so straight but sometimes you’ve got to go into the lions den if you want to earn a good living.

  • Tackle

    Good forMichael Lucus. A job well done. But I really do have a hard time believeing that Michael did not know who Nick was and had never read about. C’mon Mike. We know that you read. Queerty.

  • haringfan1

    @streeteditions: Good one!, well done

  • Kevin

    Perhaps he was trolling for a new cash cow, either way he got exactly what he deserves “I’m not gay” hookah please

  • Taliaferro

    @streeteditions: I think you mean, “grubby” mess.

  • offbeatoh86

    @streeteditions: Buysexual: Noun; Swings whichever way the money flows from.

  • dewin

    Who’s Michael Lucas?

  • Mike

    This is a little too dramatic. I’m not sure I believe it.

  • Snapper59

    I thought I read this guy is in trouble already for getting into a bloody fist fight in a club in the Hamptons. Sounds like an all around a-hole.

  • LeNair Xavier

    Michael Lucas probably does know who Nick Gruber is. He’s just avoided stories about Nick Gruber because besides the part of suddenly coming out as “straight”, Michael Lucas getting a sugar daddy makes his and Nick Gruber’s live mirror each other to a degree. The one main difference is Michael Lucas married his sugar daddy.

    Either way, the life of a kept boy is ugly and deplorable. To the point that the kept boy themselves don’t even want to see it.

  • rcblue73

    Gruber was merely there to declare his normalcy to counter an infestation of homosexuality. Like straight couples I’ve known who go to gay clubs to show off their normal sexuality. I remember one guy at a place I worked relating with a lot of laughter how his girlfriend “accidently” pushed a ‘fag’ down a flight of stairs at a gay bar. Great fun.

  • Stache1

    @rcblue73: You lost me when you got to “Gruber” and “normalcy”. Didn’t have to read it any further to know that the rest would be pure babble from a dip shit troll.

  • Stache1

    @LeNair Xavier: You’re right in every respect. Lucus looks down the road. He’s smart. Marry your daddy and get everything in writing.

  • Dez

    How the hell is anyone supposed to know who this douche is? Because he’s done gay porn and was Calvin Klein’s f*ck toy? Oh and because on top of all that, he’s “straight”? Nick Gruber should realize that if people know who he is, they’re more likely to treat him with contempt.

    & this is going to sound really horrible, but when I see all these stories about young people killing themselves and it’s so tragic to wonder why they would do it- of all people, I wish the likes of Nick Gruber would jump on the suicide bandwagon.

    Horrible I know, but isn’t he?

  • Faggot

    @KentonForshee: That’s a standard reply heard at many roped stanchions in front of gay clubs all over North America — usually delivered by some pissy drag queen doing the front door. One wonders how many times Andrei Lvovich Treivas (aka Michael Lucas) has heard that said to him over the years.

  • Faggot

    @dewin: An uncircumcised Jew.

  • Joel J

    @Cam: Some guys are attracted to bad boys, especially if the bad boy claims to be straight.

  • scotshot

    @Tackle: He is D list. Who knows the nobodys.

  • Kenover

    Only the truly famous and utterly fabulous Zsa Zsa Gabor could indignantly demand “Don’t you know who I am?” and pull it off. And Zsa Zsa had bigger cojones than this little twit. She said it to a cop and promptly slapped his face!

  • pauleky

    @rcblue73: I had a friend who told me her boyfriend was never more affectionate with her than when they were in a gay bar. He and his partner have been together now for around 15 years. :-)

  • Dave

    Michael Lucas is a despicable human being. He sues people who are closeted and download his porn illegally, some of them are teenagers who end up killing themselves. He is a hardcore Republican who is a founding member of GOProud – the group that brought in Ann Coulter to speak about how marriage equality is a bad idea for gays, and how DADT should have remained in effect in the military. Added to this vile mix, he’s a Islamophobe who supports the extreme right wing in Israel and the settlements on illegal occupied land.
    How exactly people buy his movies is beyond me.

  • H8trsneedluv


    Nobody should ever wish suicide on anyone – what a horrible thing to say. You’re not funny….cyber bulling is never funny.

  • Faggot

    @Dave: I am sure that you wouldn’t resort to calumny, so one wonders where you got this information from — namely, that, as you stated, Michael Lucas is: 1. litigious insofar that it even resulted in teenage suicide; 2. is a founding member of GOProud (from what I saw he actually confronted Ann Coulter at their fundraiser); 3a. how he is against marriage for gays and 3b. supported DADT; 4. where exactly has he exhibited Islamophobia; 5. and where has he shown affiliation with right wing parties in Israel?

    It seems that you have been watching ML closely and know a great deal about him. Would it be possible for you to document your sources on these six points, Dave?

    Thank you.

  • Faggot

    @H8trsneedluv: @Dez Indeed. Bullying is made much easier now that people can troll around in cyberspace and only have a virtual identity. In the realm of electronic communication so many virtual ruffians and annoying tormentors are born. How many would be so fearless to actually have the chutzpah to say such horrible things beyond their computer screens?

  • DarthKitsune

    *GASP* Michael Lucas did something that didn’t annoy me? IT’S THE END TIMES!!! Bravo Miss Lucas, I’m with you on this one.

  • Cobalt Blue

    Nick Gruber is so trash and disgusting that even a gross ma’am like Miss Lucas looks like decent people by his side.

  • dvlaries

    So, is this part of the PR rehabilitation started for Gruber and is Klein’s team already spinning this as poor, victimized Nick mistreated by a hostile gay pornographer…?
