Freddie Mercury left Mary everything for ONE reason: Was he wrong when Mary admitted THIS? | Music | Entertainment

Freddie wrote Love Of My Life for Mary and meant every single word. Not only when he wrote the song, but until his final, devoted breath. He didn’t just love her because they had been a couple, for him it went far beyond that. Even so, he once admitted he planned to leave everything to her when he was gone for another very important reason.

Freddie said: “If I dropped dead tomorrow, she’s the one person I know who could cope with my vast wealth.”

Except, many years after Freddie’s death, Mary revealed how much of a burden it had been, leaving her paranoid and unable to sleep – and under attack from many who thought she did not deserve to receive so much. And openly told her so.

Mary said the “jealousy” of other people who had been in Freddie’s circle “hit like a bullet train.”  

“Some of the fans even told me I was only the keeper of the house. That hurt. I know several of Freddie’s gay friends were surprised Freddie had left so much to me. There those who thought they should have been left the house. It was like people begrudged me having what he had left me.”

In his will, Freddie ensured Mary would receive 50% of his share of future Queen revenue, with Freddie’s sister and parents receiving 25% each. According to reports, on the deaths of Freddie’s parents, their share also reverted to Mary, not Kashmira.

Back in January, it was estimated that Mary’s share of the profits from Bohemian Rhapsody’s sensational box office triumph could bring Mary up to £45million, with the remaining Queen bandmates sharing up to £70million each.

Mary still lives in the same house. She famously never wanted to redecorate, saying: “‘Why would I want to change it? It is his taste and style. It’s beautiful. His presence is everywhere.”

Fans still come to pay their respects and remember their hero, while inside Mary guards Freddie’s memories and his secrets, as he had always wanted. But she revealed how she had been forced to fight hard to stay true to Freddie’s wishes.

Mary said: “I felt very much out of my depth really. Freddie’s staff had been like family to me, but after his death most of them had left because he’d been so generous to them.

“I had sleepless nights worrying about everything. I felt as if I’d done something wrong and paranoia set in.”

It was also another eight years before Mary received the bulk of his money from the will and she said: “It was a worrying time. The taxman had been paid, but without the money coming through I didn’t know if I could afford to keep the house. I felt under a lot of pressure.”
