      OMG could Calvin Klein’s life mirror that of Liberace’s and more? This is just embarrassing for them both.
      I just really despise gay boys who pretend they are straight pretending to be gay, Walking Contradiction!

      Yep Sohobod is correct, this boy is “thick as shit”

      Cute though- nice to look at

      and it’d be fun to have him draped over your soft furnishing, and lying around the house wearing not very much. Just make sure his mouth is stuffed most of the time, so he cannot speak.

      Perhaps have him wear a slave collar when you have friends round just so everyone realises who’s boss.

      I was so willing to cut him some slack. My bad. Its not PR that he needs, it serious psychological therapy. There is not enough PR to cover up the stink of red-neck denial.

      The author doesn’t call him a gold digger BUT claims he’s looking for someone to take care of him and that he’s not gay…. So sleeping with an old man for dependence and to further a superficial career isn’t gold digging?

      @Dev.C: I think for the price he’ll “pretend” to be whatever you want. Unfortunately, these older wealthy guys don’t want the out, proud and gay. They want the down low types or “straight acting”.

      Did Diana’s death and a subsequent marriage turn Camilla Parker-Bowles into a beloved British figure? Did a handbag line and a diet company endorsement take the joke out of the name Lewinsky? In other news, one of Anthony Weiner’s texting squeezes now has a solo porn video at Vivid.

      Ok I read the article but I’m a bit confused.

      I get that the place you were stationed was very homophobic. However, if your so totally straight as you say you are then why did you need to leave for you safety and also get dishonorably discharged in the process. No clarification there.

      I think it’s fair to say that Klein met him due to his adult work. Why not just come out and say it instead of this BS story of meeting through mutual friends. Yeah, I’m sure you both were running in the same circles.

      “I can’t tell you how many flight attendants end up on Fifth Avenue,” notes a society figure who knows Klein. “They learn.” Gruber didn’t, at least not fast enough for Klein, at least according to this friend….Poor guy though. Losing that $250,000 Bentley. I’d be crying myself after having to give that up.

      “he moved to Los Angeles, became involved with another older man, named John Luciano, and was squired around L.A. by a third, another designer, named Lloyd Klein”
      …..I guess everyone has to try the Gruber out or at least if you’ve got the $. At least once.

      Dear Queerty,

      Why are you wasting time writing a story about this creature? Him and Calvin Klein are not a story we have not seen a billions times before:

      Old financially well-off White guy buys off 20-something White, Asian, light-skinned Latino (or any other light-complexioned ethnic) to be their kept boy.

      I can easily walk through the streets or gay bars/clubs of NYC, and see this any day or night of the week. And the story always ends the same — when the 20-something has either mooched off enough to go it alone, or the old guy has lost it all, the old guy gets dumped. So Nick Gruber is only back because his plan to go it alone did not work out as he had planned.

      My point is giving him any attention feeds the monster. For while you are mocking Nick Gruber (as you should), there’s some dimwit in some media outlet who is so superficial that they are going to give Nick Gruber a shot that he does NOT deserve. With that in mind, also mock Calvin Kelin for being a stereotype.

      @Doughosier: No, but we can blame him for being a classless douche. Seriously, he gives whores a bad name. And he is only beautiful since Calvin paid for the plastic surgery, but I digress. Is it wrong of me to be a bit incredulous of a man who claims to be straight when I’ve seen him get boned in the butt and smoke the flesh cigar….multiple times. Just wondering if perhaps I missed something in the gay handbook about judging a man by his actions caught on film and still available on the Internet?

    • retropian

      Lord, why do I find this worth commenting on? There must be some kind of connection between CK and this kid beyond sex for pay. Is CK codependent? Has he found a troubled young man whom he feels he can rescue? No doubt CK has hired the services of many young and troubled hustlers over the years, so why this attachment to NG? I can only guess that there is some sort of connection. Perhaps CK just feels paternal now, or guilty for giving NG a taste of the life and dropping him. Who can say for sure, but there must be more between them than NG being CK’s boy-toy.

      Aug 13, 2013 at 9:16 pm · @ReplyReply to this comment ·

      @retropian: I think the only “connection” CK feels for this vapid idiot (and keeps him foolishly — and pathetically — and desperately — coming back for more) is that he’s getting to the age now where he probably feels he doesn’t have a whole lot more time left to be the openly gay dude he should have been 40, 50 years ago… :(

      Yeah, ya know snarky works when it’s smart. Not sure what it is with Queerty writers and this need to be snarky and cynical to the point of being juvenile no matter what the subject matter. Case and point; his porn name. Yeah, he did work at SC; but he did the majority of his work at NDS under the name…wait for it…Aaron Skyline. No misprint. You’ve done porn, you’ve done porn; no matter how many names you’ve done it under, which is probably why the writer of the interview did not mention his brief work at SC. Research is kind of an essential tool of journalism…FYI.

      But to the actual subject matter…I don’t know what he is expecting from this reboot. From a “PR” perspective, I’ve yet to see one guy who did gay porn then claim he was actually straight that was able to successfully reboot their entertainment career. It seems that by saying he’s straight, he and his publicist believe that they can wipe out everything related to homosexuality that he’s done; almost to the point of disavowing his relationship with CK. Which doesn’t exactly endear him to the public at large. It just makes him seem like a gold digger who will sleep with anyone and do anything to become rich and famous. Which ya know works for some people; except they’re not so public about it. As to all the issues he’s had before, during and after his relationship with CK, I’ll just drop a little advice to all the would be gay sugar daddies out there…buy gay. These gay for pay guys seem to consistently have something in common with each other…mental instability, violence, drugs, etc. I know it can be thrilling but so can driving a sports car at top speed with no brakes. Fun…but I wouldn’t recommend it.

      Sex with Calvin Klein? Pretty disgusting. Money talks though. I wonder if old guys like Calvin are delusional in thinking they could ever get younger guys if they didn’t have money. I think these older guys kid themselves. It’s like a desperate attempt to feel young again. I wish I didn’t know these things about Calvin Klein. I used to like his underwear. I have some of his jock straps I used to get fucked in. I’ve bought a lot of his cologne too, but not anymore. I never knew he looked like that either. Yikes.

      I have absolutely no idea who this idiot is. I think the majority of people have no clue who he is. How interesting he thinks people care about him. How bizarre he feels he needs to hire a publicist. Really – nobody cares.

      Poor, sad Calvin Klein. All that money and success could still not make him happy. He falls into that age old trap of old man chasing young kids to make himself still feel young and attractive. Money doesn’t buy class or intelligence does it Calvin ?

      Two comments…

      1. The fact that his greatest goal in life is to be a fashion model is just kind of sad.

      2. He isn’t gay…but he is having sex with a wealthy older man who takes care of him.

      Well ok then, if you aren’t gay then you can’t even pretend it’s a relationship, that means you are 100% a prostitute. Thanks for clearing that up Nick.

      Someone airbrushed the FUCK out of the pic above, because this exact story ran on HuffPost and the pic they used of Gruber was a LOT less flattering. When I saw the pic in the HuffPost piece I thought: “Damn! A 37-year-old boytoy? Only in America!”

      Come to find out he’s only 23. I don’t know whether it was drugs or the weight of the world on his precious little shoulders but he looks deplorable for his age! I thought the whole “twink” thing centered on skinny, early-20-something gays who look like they just graduated high school in June.

      Gruber looks old enough to remember where he was when the Challenger exploded, when he wasn’t even born yet.

      Lay off the meth, kids!

      Oh and Gruber—get a fucking job. Weren’t you trying to be a reality TV star? After that failed, weren’t you trying to write a tell-all about your totally-not-gay-relationship with your sugar grandaddy? Then CK swooped in with his lawyers and his checkbook and paid you off, thus proving the old adage that every lowlife has a price….and now you wanna be a model?

      Translation: You’ll be using your high-powered publicist to go to the press every 8 months with your latest get-famous-quick scheme, which of course is nonsensical and futile since: 1) You have no absolutely no discernible skills whilst fully clothed; 2) You’re gonna get some rich old queen to pay your way anyway. But it doesn’t matter because: 3) You’re a press junkie and in your deluded mind getting recognized in public as CK’s ex-whore is better than not being recognized at all.

      I have a better idea, you Pretty Young Thing. Since you’re only 23 and DADT is deader than your career prospects, why not re-enlist?
