JK Rowling, the author of a famous wildly successful Harry Potter series is making headlines for her comments during an interview she gave as part of a special feature for the BluRay release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. In the interview, she said the characters Dumbledore and Grindelwald were in a relationship. Yes, you read that right! A sexual relationship.

“Their relationship was incredibly intense,” she said in the Distinctly Dumbledore feature on the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Blu-Ray.

“It was passionate, and it was a love relationship. But as happens in any relationship, gay or straight or whatever label we want to put on it, one never knows really what the other person is feeling. You can’t know, you can believe you know.

“So I’m less interested in the sexual side – though I believe there is a sexual dimension to this relationship – than I am in the sense of the emotions they felt for each other, which ultimately is the most fascinating thing about all human relationships.”
