Freddie Mercury separated from Mary in 1976, 15 years before her death. So why did he leave her a huge fortune and half of all her future Queen earnings? The star actually spent her final years in a romantic relationship with her partner Jim Hutton. He was surrounded by friends and lived with his ex-boyfriend Joe Fanelli and his friend and PA Peter Freestone. He is survived by his parents, Jer and Bomi Bulsara, as well as his sister Kasmira and her family. But he said, “If I start, I’m going to leave it all to him. No one else gets a dime except my cats. “
Freddie seemed to have it all. He was the ultimate showman and rarely revealed much about his inner thoughts. However, in a candid interview, he said: “I could have all the problems in the world, but I have Mary and it gets me through…
“I still see her every day and love her as much as I ever have. I will love her until I take my last breath. ”
And that’s exactly what he did.

Freddie spoke about his own struggles and how Mary gave him strength.
He said, “You can be loved by so many thousands of people, but still be the loneliest person. And the resulting frustration makes it worse because it’s hard for people to understand that you can be alone.
“Can you imagine how terrible it is when you have everything, but are still desperately lonely?” It’s horrible beyond words …
“I can only name one really dear person to whom I can open up and feel really happy…”
Freddie left Jim Hutton, Joe and Peter £ 500,000 each. He left a quarter of his future Queen earnings to his parents and another quarter to his sister. Apart from a few minor bequests, everything else went to Mary.
But Mary admitted that not everyone was happy with the decision: “Some fans even told me that I was just the house keeper. It hurts. I know several of Freddie’s gay friends were surprised that Freddie left me with so much. who thought they should have been left at home. It was as if people resented me for having what he left me. ”
It took another eight years for Mary to receive most of her will money: “It was a worrying time. The taxpayer had been paid, but without the money flowing, I wasn’t sure if I could afford to keep the house. . I felt a lot of pressure. ”
