dakota johnsonWhoa, if new buzz is to be believed, Dakota Johnson's love life off-screen could be getting just as intense as her relationship drama on-screen in Fifty Shades of Grey! Although she is currently dating reportedly "jealous" Jordan Masterson, she had a "secret fling" with much older, 44-year-old actor Stephen Dorff back in 2011. Making things even more complicated: They were introduced by Stephen's on/off again girlfriend, Hollywood publicist Robin Baum, who also represents Dakota. And now, Stephen's apparently infatuated with the young actress ...

So much so that Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson are "trying to protect the 24-year-old." ShowbizSpy.com reports that an insider claimed, "Melanie and Don have gotten wind of Stephen’s advances. And they both think he would be a terrible choice as a boyfriend. ... Melanie and Don have sent him a clear message: Leave Dakota alone!"

 

Ha, a little bit like Christian Grey, eh?

And adding fuel to the fire: “Right now, things are rocky between Dakota and (her boyfriend) Jordan, and she’s flattered by Stephen’s crush on her." Wuh-oh!

Sounds like this could very well be a totally fabricated tabloid story that's just playing on the Fifty Shades plotline. (Kinda like how conspiracy theorists are hell-bent on proving Kerry Washington's pregnancy fake ... a la Scandal!) Or maybe there's some truth to it ... Either way, let's hope whatever's going on off-screen with Dakota's love life isn't insane enough to distract her from what's most important right now: Bringing Anastasia Steele to the big screen!

Would you believe there's any truth to this? What do you think about Dakota with Stephen Dorff?!
