Calvin Klein's Ex Is Too Straight for Fire Island
Nick Gruber recently came out as straight, but the former gay porn star most famous for dating Calvin Klein is still making super-gay headlines.
“Kicked Nick Gruber out of the VIP tent at the Ascension Party,” porn mogul Michael Lucas wrote on Facebook. “He was screaming at people for touching him while declaring he is ‘straight.’”
Michael, host of the VIP tent at the annual Fire Island Pines event, later elaborated:
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.”
So what’s Nick’s side of the story?
As part of a must-read new Gawker interview with Nick, Michael Musto got an official statement from the fame whore's poor publicist Matt Rich, who explained, “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.”
The cause? What, finding another sugar daddy?
