Same story as always, she inherited a great fortune, Freddie said about her this, Freddie said that, "love of my life" etc... Boring.
If something is repeated a thousand times doesn't mean that it's all true.

Btw... wasn't Barbara Valentin very important for him too? AFAIK she wasn't allowed to go to the funeral, and was not mentiond in the movie at all. What is the story behind that?

Freddie did find Barbara more fun than drab Mary, but i truly believe it was Jim Hutton that lighted the fire for Freddie, he brought so much joy and love
to Freddie's heart and Freddie even began calling Jim his "husband" so i am sure hairy Mary was envious of that!

That photo of Mary is shocking, what an old hag sh has turned into and you would have thought somebody who had Freddie's millions would have kept themselves presentable and young looking.
You get what you reap.

Yeah, getting ripped in to someone else over how they look in a shit photo is a bit daft. How she looks, how she spends her money etc is nowt to do with any of us. There's fandom and there's voyeurism.

This photo is not shocking to me, she is 68 years old.
It's shocking to me that she still earns enormous money on Freddie's name and account. And I wondering how someone can judging Jim for the book in which describing how much Freddie and he loved each other. How anyone can calls him gold digger?

She interited the money and the rights to the songs? What should she have done??? She is right about JIm. The book was awful and indiscrete. She is the only one (apart John) who stood loyal to Freddie and did not write a book or shit like that. The biggest golddiggers are Maylor though. Exploiting Freddie and insulting him at the same time. That's where you should be shocked

Ladies, Gentleman and EMI2565: This "article" did appear in The Daily Mail! What do you expect and why are you debating it as if it had featured some serious information? I, for one, am not at all sure that the "new" photo featured in this crap-story actually really shows Mary Austin.If so, who cares? To even assume that people owning millions have to "keep themselves presentable and young looking“ is pathetic. by the way, the "article" got one "fact" wrong. The 25 percent share of Freddie's future earnings, that belonged to his parents, didn't fell to Mary Austin when they passed away, but to Freddie's sister (and to her handsome son, hopefully). Financially they're all well off, Mary Austin can look like King King or Baby Doll if she wants to and we are debating the same old bullshit presented to us by the Red Tops over and over again. This can be heaven for everyone, right?

Why is Jim's book insulting? Or awful? He had the right to tell their story, that was his life too.
Many people believe in fairy tales about Mary and Freddie, like those shown in the movie. If this book doesn't exist would be easier for persons who created stories like this to twisting the facts, so I'm glad that this book exists.

About Brian and Roger, do I agree or disagree with all what they do, it doesn't matter. They are members of the band and they have a part in making Queen's music and it's logical to make money from it.
