The late Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury’s former lover and friend, Mary Austin‘s secret interview with Mirror unearthed after many times by Overnight Showbiz/TV Reporter, James Brinsford.

Mary Austin revealed that it was a very bad experience for him to see Freddie deteriorate as his body weakened.

She also claimed that Freddie has chosen the time to die.

Here is what Mary said to Mirror:

“It was Freddie’s decision to finally end it all. He chose the time to die. He knew it was coming. The quality of his life had changed so dramatically and he was in more pain every day. He was losing his sight. His body became weaker as he suffered mild fits.

It was so distressing to see him deteriorating in this way. One day he decided enough was enough and stopped all the medical supplements that were keeping him going.”

She continued:

“He looked death in the face and said, ‘Fine, I’ll accept it now – I’ll go. But it was peaceful and he died with a smile on his face. Suddenly, there wasn’t anyone to help me. It made me realize that I wasn’t as self-sufficient as I would have liked to have been. He was always very protective of me. I only realized, after he died, quite how protective he’d been.”
