J.K. Rowling Reveals More Insight on Dumbledore & Grindelwald's Sexual Relationship, But Fans Aren't Happy

J.K. Rowling has revealed some new details about Dumbledore and Grindewald’s relationship and the information is not sitting well with fans.

The “Harry Potter” author and Fantastic Beasts screenwriter revealed that the two characters had an “intense” sexual relationship. While fans are applauding the inclusion of gay characters in the story, they are upset that Rowling did not include these details in the books or films.

“Their relationship was incredibly intense. It was passionate, and it was a love relationship,” Rowling said in a bonus feature interview on the Crimes of Grindelwald Blu-ray set. “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 relationship,” she added.

Jude Law plays Young Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts movies while Johnny Depp plays Grindelwald.

Fantastic Beasts' Ezra Miller Finally Speaks About That Huge Twist Ending in 'Crimes of Grindelwald'!

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hit theaters last week and Ezra Miller, who plays the role of Credence Barebone, has broken his silence on the major twist at the end!

SPOILERS AHEAD! Don’t continue reading if you haven’t seen the movie!

At the end of the movie, Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) revealed to Credence that he’s actually Aurelius Dumbledore, who is presumed to be the brother of Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law).

“I was shocked, stunned, confused, petrificus totalus with wonder and fascination. And I still have a lot of questions for which I have no answers,” Ezra told EW about finding out the big news. Ezra added that he first learned the true identity of Credence after promoting the first Fantastic Beasts movie in 2016.

And does Albus Dumbledore know that Credence is his brother?

“We truly do not know,” Ezra said. “Jude knows. But he won’t tell you.”

As for what the characters will be doing while waiting at Nurmengard Castle, he responded, “Probably just hang out all the time. Hopefully Antonio the chupacabra — who was treated so foully by our fearless leader and master — has some siblings somewhere. We have a phoenix. We have the Obscurus juice. Plus Grindelwald is one of the most formidable wizards of all time. And we’ll get better costumes since we’re now on the villains side.”
