Freddie Mercury bequeathed the vast majority of his fortune to his ex-girlfriend, Mary Austin, and also entrusted her to ensure that the burial place of his ashes would remain secret.
“All my lovers asked me why they couldn’t replace Mary [Austin], but it’s simply impossible. The only friend I’ve got is Mary and I don’t want anybody else. To me, she was my common-law wife. To me, it was a marriage. We believe in each other, that’s enough for me.”
