Ex-Porn Star Brawls With Chateau Marmont Staff Because He Couldn’t Get A Burger at 1 AM

You might not know that beautiful specimen of manflesh who looks like a rejected member of O-Town, but he’s Nick Gruber, an ex-porn star (and ex-Calvin Klein lovah) who, Page Six explains, is apparently something of a hothead.

He threw down earlier this week at the Chateau Marmont when he rolled in at 1:30 AM, presumably wasted, and tried to get a burger. After being informed by hotel staff that the kitchen was closed at that hour, Gruber reportedly got belligerent at which point a security guard entered the scene and headbutted him (allegedly), causing a fight that ended with Gruber calling the cops. He told police he had been jumped and that the security guard bruised his hand. Really, dude? You don’t think you might have bruised your hand yourself, oh, we don’t know, trying to drunk-punch a most likely rock-solid security guard?

“I’m suing the hotel,” Gruber insisted. “It’s wrong for their employee to attack me. André [Balazs] should have a nicer staff. You don’t attack anyone like that.” A nicer staff and around-the-clock burgers, is what we think he meant.

For the record, the Chateau Marmont has earned the lifetime patronage of one Mr. Tony Bourdain, who refuses to stay anywhere else when visiting Los Angeles. So, we’re pretty sure André’s staff is doing just fine. Of course we hope Mr. Gruber’s hand is okay and that he eventually got the burger of his dreams.
