Fred­die’s ex-fi­ancee to net €45m from movie biopic

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

FRED­DIE Mer­cury’s ex-fi­ancee is set for a €45mil­lion wind­fall from the suc­cess of Bo­hemian Rhap­sody.

Mary Austin, who still lives in the Queen singer’s €20mil­lion West Lon­don man­sion, was left half of his fu­ture earn­ings af­ter his death.

The star – who died in 1991 – de­scribed her as the “love of my life” but many peo­ple knew very lit­tle about Mary be­fore Bo­hemian Rhap­sody hit screens last year.

The late Queen singer’s “com­mon-law” wife is an ex­tremely pri­vate woman but was thrown back into the lime­light on foot of the movie star­ring Rami Malek.

The biopic scooped best film at the Golden Globes last week­end and has made al­most €670mil­lion.
