** FREDDIE & MARY **
It’s about Mary Austin
Freddie’s girlfriend and lover.
Freddie met Mary Austin in 1970 in London, at Kensington Market.
In this time Freddie was still a student.
Soon, the romance between them began.
Mary Austin became Freddie’s girlfriend.
They lived for seven years as husband and wife.
In 1977 they came apart, but remained friends with each other.
Mary lived in Freddie’s neighborhood.
She was helping Freddie with housekeeping, seeing to the house,
feeding his cats.
Mary was managing his property, house and finances and
helped Freddie with his Queen Company.
Freddie and Mary often appeared together on public,
at Freddie’s work, at the routs and parties
…Our love ended up with tears,
but we remained very close to each other, and this friendship is eternal.
Freddie Mercury said.
We take care of each other, and it’s a wonderful form of love.
I can face all the troubles of the world,
but I’ve got Mary,and she’ll save me.
She accepts my lifestyle
When Freddie was dying, it was Mary Austin who cared for him.
She called his parents with the horrible news about his death.
She inherited Freddie’s luxurious house with all antiquities,
a half of his money and a part of the royalties.
Freddie Mercury would dominate a stage with all the force of a hurricane.
But offstage an entirely different kind of man existed.
All the flamboyance was replaced by someone who was very shy,
suspicious of people, and guarded his privacy.
Mary Austin was a woman, whom Freddie had described in the past as the
***love of his life***
***Love is the hardest thing to achieve and the one thing in this business that can let you down the most… Freddie said.
I have built up an immense bond with Mary. She has gone through just about everything and always been there for me.***
Long before Freddie told any of his close friends or the fellow members of Queen that he had AIDS, he confided his secret to Mary.
From that moment she was there each day to try to comfort him
as he gradually became more ill.
Freddie decided to face up to dying by refusing to take his medication,
***It was Freddie’s decision to finally end it all.
He chose the time to die,***
Mary recalls in a whisper.
He knew it was coming.
The quality of his life had changed so dramatically and he was in more pain every day.
Freddie was losing his sight.
His body became weaker as he suffered mild fits. I
t was so distressing to see him deteriorating in this way.
One day Freddie decided enough was enough and stopped all the medical supplements
that were keeping him going.
The overwhelming thing for me was that he was just so incredibly brave.
Freddie looked death in the face and said,
Fine, I’ll accept it now – I’ll go.
But it was peaceful and he died with a smile on his face.
