Bohemian Rhapsody is enough to explain some details of Freddie Mercury’s personal life, lead singer and main figure behind the success of the band Queen. Mercury is known for his distinctive opera voice and flamboyant style while on stage, but beyond that, he is known as a very quiet person and has a charismatic character, another side that is rarely known to many people.
One person who knows Mercury’s personality well is Jim Hutton, his last partner
In the film, Jim Hutton is played by an Irish actor, Aaron McCusker. In the film, the two of them meet at a party held by Mercury where Hutton is one of the party’s waiters. But what really happened with Jim Hutton and Mercury in the real world?
Unfortunately, Hutton is no longer with us. Like Mercury, he also has HIV. But this is not the cause of death
If Mercury died in 1991 due to HIV / AIDS which for several years attacked him, Hutton died of lung cancer. Hutton died at the age of 60 on January 1, 2010.

Originally, Hutton was a hairdresser who later met Mercury at a gay club called Heaven in London in 1985
Mercury approached Hutton and offered him a drink, but Hutton was currently in a relationship with someone else so he had to refuse Mercury’s offer. Lapse of 18 months later they met again at a club, and this time they both felt there was an amorous vibration between them and finally officially formed a relationship until the end of Mercury’s life at the age of 45 years.
The two of them lived together for several years, shortly after they started having an affair
Even though they were never married (same-sex marriage was still illegal at the time), they acted as if they were a married couple; each wore a ring on the finger to show how committed they were to each other and called each other husband.
Just like a married couple, they support each other through difficult times
After Mercury was diagnosed with AIDS in 1987, Hutton was often given an understanding by Mercury that in fact, it was okay if Hutton wanted to leave. But Hutton showed his loyalty by staying by Mercury’s side until his death in 1991. Three years after Mercury’s death, Hutton published a book about his time with Mercury entitled Mercury and Me.
