Mind blown.

On Wednesday, it was revealed that a new book claims Marlon Brando and James Dean were once in a secret sadomasochistic relationship. Umm, WHAT?

According to DailyMail, James Dean: Tomorrow Never Comes highlights the complex relationship between the two famous actors before Dean’s death at the young age of 24. Whoa.

Apparently, the men would meet up for master and servant style sex sessions where the late Hollywood heartthrob would allegedly ask The Godfather star to burn him with cigarettes. Oh man!

The book further claims that this style of relationship was fueled by Brando’s “ego and insatiable desire for control” — Merp!

While Dean was supposedly in “puppy love” with Brando, the A-lister didn’t reciprocate the youngster’s feelings. Apparently, the activist would play a “cat and mouse” game with his young beau and even make Jimmy watch him have sex with strangers.

Sadly, the book states that the Giant performer used to wait outside of his lover’s home hoping that Marlon would invite him upstairs. How sad!

These crazy tales come from conversations with supposed “friends” and sources, as well as veteran gossip journalists who were closed with James.

The new work also notes Brando’s account of his first meeting with Dean in his memoir Songs My Mother Taught Me is supposedly not true as the pair may have met as early as 1949 when shared acting coach Lee Strasberg had the film icon speak at the Actors Studio — where James happened to be a student.

Hot dang!

It’ll certainly be inneresting to see what else this book has to dish when it hits stands on April 24. Will YOU be snagging a copy?
