Jim Hutton Cause Of Death
JIM Hutton and Freddie Mercury spent several years together before the Queen singer died of complications from AIDS on 24th November 1991.
They began dating in the 1980s and eventually lived together for several years.
Though they never married (gay marriage was illegal at the time), they both wore wedding rings to symbolize their devotion to one another.
Freddie reportedly shared with Hutton that he would understand if he no longer wanted to be with him when he was diagnosed with AIDS in 1987.
The Daily Beat said Hutton responded by saying: “Be reasonable; I’m not leaving here. I intend to stay here for a while.
Hutton eventually cared for Freddie until his death in 1991.
Mercury and Me, a book by Hutton about her time with the singer, was published three years after Freddie’s death.
He began working as the singer’s gardener after moving into his mansion in Kensington and made the decision to stay away from the rock ‘n’ roll scene.
In his will, Mercury left Hutton £500,000 but left his Garden Lodge to his girlfriend and ex-girlfriend, Mary Austin.
The lodge passed into the hands of Austin, a lady to whom Mercury had become engaged but called off the marriage after admitting to being bisexual.
Despite Hutton’s claims that Mercury wanted him to stay, he apparently asked him to leave.
