In the grand tradition of milking one’s fifteen minutes of fame for all they’re worth, Calvin Klein‘s 22 year old ex-boyfriend Nick Gruber reportedly plans to write a tell-all book about his torrid two-year relationship with Calvin Klein, and after just days on the market it’s incited a bidding war in the publishing world.
The 22-year-old male model plans to share all the sordid details, and a source tells us there are two strong offers on the table with a third one on the way.
We reached out to Gruber and he confirmed he’s ready to tell his side of the story.
“Yes, it’s true that I’m writing a book,” he said.
Gruber has tapped a well-known author to develop the book as they begin to flesh out the structure and chapters. The writer spoke with us anonymously, and called the content that will be revealed “beyond shocking.”
After just two days of shopping the book — tentatively titled “What Came Between Me and My Calvin” — the offers started piling in.
“If it was just [Gruber’s] story, then there’s no way we could sell the thing, but because it’s about his relationship with this very private, very high-profile person, it’s generating a lot of interest,” said the writer.
Klein, 69, created a stir when he took up with the 20-year-old Gruber in 2010. (He divorced Kelly Klein in 2006.) The couple went on a break this past January, and seemed to have called it quits for good when Gruber was arrested for assault and cocaine possession in April.
In a possible preview of what he plans to publish, Gruber took to his Facebook profile in May to share the news that he was leaving rehab a changed person.
“I don’t want to go back to my old self,” he wrote. “I want to focus on my future.” One departure from his old self could be a new interest in the opposite sex. He was photographed making out with Chelsea Heath — who was named 2010’s Hottest Girl in America by “Girls Gone Wild” — in Marina Del Rey, and we saw him last week at SoHo restaurant RSVP with another girl who identified herself as “Nastia.”
