Calvin Klein’s ex-boyfriend, Nick Gruber, has revealed that the fashion icon forced him to take a lie detector test.
Gruber (22) and Klein (70) started dating in 2010 and broke up earlier this year, around the time that Gruber was arrested for assault and cocaine possession in April.
The former x-rated model has been working on a tell-all book about the affair titled Obsession: My Life With Calvin Klein. He also opened up about the relationship in a new interview with Page Six Magazine.
Gruber insisted that he was faithful to Klein during their “exclusive” two year relationship. Despite this, he claims that Klein forced him to have a lie detector test to prove his fidelity, a test which he says he passed.
“…what kind of partner would make you take a lie detector test? I was like, ‘Did you ever cheat on me, Calvin?’ I never cheated on him,” said Gruber.
He continued: “I fell in love with him, but then, sooner or later, I realised it was paternal. That’s what I learned in therapy.”
Gruber revealed that he took Klein to have his-first ever McDonald’s burger. “I made Calvin go to McDonald’s and have a Big Mac, and he asked if they had it medium rare,” he said with a laugh.
“He took a bite, and he was like, ‘Ugh, what’s this?’ I’ll never forget that story: medium rare for a Big Mac at McDonald’s…”
Gruber told Page Six that he is straight, although he is now once again involved with a man; the wealthy 48-year-old John Luciano, the grand-nephew of mobster Lucky Luciano.
Bizarrely, Luciano admitted to the magazine that he sets his younger boyfriend up with women for sex so that he can stay happy in the relationship.
“He craves something, I think, from older men,” said Luciano, adding: “The most intimidating thing is having sex with your boyfriend and pulling down his pants and his ex-boyfriend’s name is staring you right in the face.”
In addition to mainstream modelling, Gruber has also performed in x-rated solo videos and photo shoots for a number of gay adult sites.
Klein has never come out as gay and has married and divorced two women but, according to some biographers, he is bisexual. Gruber claims that he was the first man that Klein fell in love with.
