Freddie Mercury and Jim Hutton: The Love Story of a Couple in Photos

Freddie Mercury and Jim Hutton first met at a bar in 1984. Freddie offered his new acquaintance a drink, and Jim didn't even recognize the star. And only later did his friends tell him that he drank with Mercury. That time it all ended with drinking and talking. The next time Mercury and Hatton met after 1, 5 years in the same bar, but they left together, and very soon Hatton had already moved to live with Mercury in Garden Lodge.

For two years Freddie Mercury and Jim Hutton lived in perfect harmony. And then the musician found out that he had AIDS and invited Hatton to leave. But he said that he loved Freddie and was not going to go anywhere. And he did not leave. He was close to his lover, took care of him and looked after him until his death in 1991. Hatton himself lived with HIV for about 20 years and died in 2010 from lung cancer.
