A fan account on Instagram dedicated to Queen icon Freddie Mercury posted the photoshopped pictures of the late musician with various celebrities including The Beatles’ legend John Lennon and revealed the real stories behind each photo.

Queen’s legendary frontman Freddie Mercury sadly passed away in 1991 at the age of 45. The cause of Freddie’s death was announced as bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS.

Recently, one of the most popular fan pages of Freddie Mercury on Instagram named Freddie Mercury Club shared several photoshopped pictures of the late singer with celebrities varying from Princess Diana to John Lennon.

On the caption of the post, the fan account explained the real stories of each photo starting with Freddie’s frame hugged by Princess Diana. Apparently, in the real photo of Freddie, there was Barbara Valentin posing with the Queen icon. However, Princess Diana was photoshopped instead of Valentin even though the two had most likely never met.

Furthermore, the fan account posted another picture of Mercury, this time he was allegedly posing with The Beatles’ member John Lennon. As it was explained in the caption, the original picture had Freddie Mercury with Paul Prenter, however, later John Lennon was photoshopped in the frame. Although Freddie was known as a huge fan of Lennon, there was no photo of the two meeting in person.

Additionally, Mercury’s photo with John Deacon was also revealed as a fake. Apparently, in the original picture, Freddie was posing with his close friend James Arthur, not Deacon.

Here’s the caption of the fan account’s post:

Fact vs. Fiction

I’ve been seeing a lot of photoshopped photos of Freddie with other people where the head has been swopped for someone else.

In the 1st photo, you can see the real photo of Freddie with Barbara Valentin and then the photoshopped one with Princess Diana which is based on the myth of them meeting and all of which most likely never even happened.

In the 2nd photo, you can see the real photo of Freddie with James Arthur (a close friend of his) and then the photoshopped one with John Deacon. This is a recent photoshopped photo that has been spreading around the net like wildfire and it personally bothers me more than the others because Freddie and John have so many beautiful photos together that leave no necessity for such photoshopped photos.”

And here is the part about Lennon and Freddie:

“In the 3rd photo, you can see the real photo of Freddie with Paul Prenter and then the photoshopped one of John Lennon. Freddie admired Lennon and he wrote a tribute song for him but there is no photo of the two of them ever meeting in person.

The 4th photo is not photoshopped but I added it here because so many people mistake that couple for Freddie’s parents but they are simply a Zanzibari couple named Mr & Mrs. Kenga NOT Jer & Bomi Bulsara.”
