Freddie Mercury’s partner dies

PinkNews Staff Writer January 8, 2010

The partner of the late Freddie Mercury passed away last week.

Jim Hutton had lived with Mercury for six years prior to the singer’s death from an AIDS-related illness in 1991.

Hutton died at his home on New Year’s Day from cancer. He was 60.

He worked as Mercury’s hairdresser and was left £500,000 and a plot of land by the singer.

He also tested positive for HIV in 1990 but did not tell Mercury until a year later.

Hutton was buried on Sunday in Bennekerry, Ireland.
