Freddie Mercury, originally born as Farrokh Bulsara, was a singer from Great Britain, musician and songwriter, best known as the lyricist and first vocalist of one of the world’s most famous bands ever Queen. As an entertainer, he was best known for his lavish stage behaviour and powerful voice.
Freddie’s intriguing stellar career and especially controversial private life were the centre of massive global media attention for quite some time. What is little known about him is that he left almost his entire fortune, real-estate and private belongings to his former female girlfriend Mary Austin.
Mercury claimed multiple times that she was the love of his life and would forever remain as such, therefore she was entitled to all of his wealth. The couple dated for nearly 6 years before Freddie decided he preferred male partners the most.
The news of his decision completely shocked not only Mary but the whole world as well.
But no matter the devastating circumstances around Freddie’s fatal disease, Mary Austin stood beside him till the very end.
After his tragic passing, Mary was left with the enormous responsibility to take care of his huge mansion, fortune and staff. His will also brought her the negative reactions of Freddie’s closest ones who were quite envious about his final decision for nearly a decade after his tragic death took place.
