Freddie Mercury girlfriend Mary Austin at 70: Where does Mary Austin live now? | Music | Entertainment


Freddie died on November 24 1991 and a funeral ceremony took place three days later.

Three months later, Mary asked Peter, Jim and Freddie’s ex Joe Fanelli to all move out of One Garden Lodge.

This caused some divisions and many saw it as a betrayal of Freddie’s memory. Again, Peter spoke to The Express to clear up a tangled and inflammatory story.

He said: “As you all know in his will he left Garden Lodge and all its contents to Mary Austin. This did not include three adult males.

“So that Freddie’s written will could go through probate it was necessary that we were no longer in the house and we were all given three months to make our arrangements.

“We were not evicted onto the streets, as Freddie had made sure we all had somewhere to go.”

Freddie left each of the three men £500,000 to get started, which was an even more considerable amount in 1991.
