After Bohemian Rhapsody hit screens, Queen the fans learned more after Freddie Mercury's complicated relationship with his wife, Mary Austin.

The film was very clean at the Golden Globe and also became a box office hit. Mary was portrayed by 24-year-old actress Lucy Boynton in the film, which showed her friendship with Mercury.
Bohemian Rhapsody grossed almost £ 600 million at the box office, with Mary receiving £ 40 million in royalties, as reported by Mirror.
As reported by MirrorMercury left Mary 50 percent of her future earnings, which rose to 75 percent after her parents' death.
Mary was also left with the £ 20m mansion at Mercury in West London, complete with her collection of art and opulent pieces of Louis XV furniture.
Mary met Mercury in 1970 before starting a global superstar when she was only 19 years old. She had been an art student at the time.
Mercury supposedly made the following comments about Mary:
All my lovers have asked me why they could not replace Mary, but it is simply impossible,
The only friend I have is Mary, and I do not want anyone else. For me, she was my common law wife. For me it was a wedding.
We believe in each other. That's enough for me. I could not fall in love with a man the way I have with Mary.
Mary, now 69, allegedly approved the film, but had no involvement with it.
