Part 3: “He knew that if he did announce it his life would be come a circus and he would be prevented from going about his business, which was making music. He wanted it to be business as usual until the end,” recalls Brian May.
But how much longer could Freddie realistically keep his condition a secret?
The press was gathering outside his home looking for any rumour and even those around him were beginning to wonder about the nature of his illness. “He was becoming more and more reclusive,” remembers former manager John Reid, while broadcaster Paul Gambaccini recalls, “Freddie was still being seen by his inner circle, but people on the periphery, like myself, were jettisoned as he concentrated on the hardcore.”
In the summer of 1990, Freddie received the devastating news that his personal chef and ex-lover, Joe Fanelli, had been diagnosed with full-blown AIDS and, a few weeks later, Freddie’s boyfriend, Jim Hutton, discovered he was HIV positive.
Within Freddie’s household there was the fear that if the press found out that three occupants of the house were ill, Garden Lodge would be dubbed “Aids Lodge” in sick newspaper headlines.
