Late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury’s boyfriend Jim Hutton revealed that Freddie was surprised by his cat Romeo attacking his other beloved cats just a year before his death from AIDS. Mercury was diagnosed with AIDS in 1987. Freddie Mercury revealed how he lost his favorite ‘toy’ in his dressing room in a newly revealed video.
Jim Hutton said, “Early in 1990, when we’d had Romeo for several months, Freddie and I were walking into the conservatory, quickly followed by four of the cats. Suddenly Romeo turned on Goliath, Delilah and Miko and started fighting. I looked at Freddie and called out ‘Rambo!’ ‘What do you mean, Rambo?’ he asked. ‘Watch him,’ I said. ‘He’s attacking all the other cats. He’s Rambo.’ It was a nickname which stuck.”
Freddie Mercury smoking in photos with Michael Jackson was revealed a few days ago. Queen’s official website is reporting: This year marks the 73rd Birthday of the legendary Freddie Mercury.
