Freddie Mercury’s lovers who broke his heart – and the three who saved him
By David Jones for the Daily Mail. Desperate to avoid his fans seeing how his once-muscular body had been ravaged by Aids, the legendary rock showman shut himself away in his London home with a coterie of friends and former lovers, and was only persuaded to release a statement admitting he was suffering the disease 48 hours before his death. According to his long-time personal assistant Peter Freestone, who was nursing him when he died in November , he was so terrified that his last resting place might be defiled by bigots that he insisted the whereabouts of his ashes must never be revealed. Enduring love: Freddie and his 'wife' Mary Austin in fancy dress for his 39th birthday in All of which explains the excitement this week after the chance discovery of a small bronze plaque, mounted in secluded gardens at Kensal Green Cemetery, West London, which appears to have been laid as a tribute to Mercury by someone very close to him.
Queen's Freddie Mercury never wanted to have an in-depth discussion about his sexuality with the public. However, it was well known that this icon of rock had had relationships with both men and women. At one point he claimed to be bisexual, but he may have been a gay man who got involved with members of the opposite sex because he was trying to survive — and build a career — in a very homophobic world.
