Nick Gruber's Ex, John Luciano, Spills The Tea On Calvin Klein's Boy-Toy

Calvin Klein's on-again, off-again, now on-again boy toy Nick Gruber is currently on an image revamp tour. Said tour includes loud proclamations that he's straight (and subsequent ejection from Michael Lucas-hosted parties). 

Now Michael Musto is currently digging up his own dirt on Gruber via interviews with Gruber himself and now a phone interview with Nick's 49-year-old ex-boyfriend John Luciano. (The ex-couple are pictured below.)

Here are some excerpts from their interview on Gawker:

John Luciano: Can I tell you the riddle about Nick? 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.

Michael Musto: When he dated you, was it gay for pay?

Luciano: Are you smoking crack? Of course! No, I‘m so special! Of course it was. I’m not gonna fool myself. The only person you should never lie to is yourself.

Musto: Did he cheat on you?

Luciano: It wasn’t that type of relationship. I fixed him up with girls. I didn’t care who he slept with. The kid’s straight, and I know that sounds crazy, but he’s straight. He’d choose any female over the hottest male.

Musto: I know, like Betty White. Does he have any idea what he’s doing when he’s in bed with a guy?

Luciano: The worst lover I’ve ever had! I like Nick and am friends with him and still try to help him, and I’m the one who encouraged him to get back with Calvin, but our relationship was very open. Have you ever slept with a woman?

Musto: I tried.

Luciano: I never have. It’s just not in me. I couldn’t imagine if I had to do that to survive, what that would be like. Someone like Nick, he has to sleep with men to survive, and that has to do some sort of damage. Most of our relationship had nothing to do with sex. He provided constant hours of entertainment. You can only imagine.

While this is clearly salacious, don't you also think it's kinda sad?

Anyone have high hopes for Nick's apparent attempt at an image revamp?

all this does fascinate me somehow....not proud of that, but there it is. What I find interesting is that I can't seem to find clear Google Images of Luciano himself...beyond the one where kissing StraightBoy is blocking his face. What gives with that? 

"Luciano: The worst lover I’ve ever had! I like Nick and am friends with him and still try to help him, and I’m the one who encouraged him to get back with Calvin, but our relationship was very open."

I do not know any of these people, but when someone is interviewed and says he is still a friend, why would they want to cast disparaging remarks on the person? We keep saying that people's private lives are just that...private. If Mr. Gruber has relationships and agreements with any man...or woman for that matter...isn't that his business? And the business of the other party?  

Whether he is gay for pay or doing it all for the love of sex, not our business.  Let this guy have a life other than the "boy toy" of this person or that person.
