RussiaLand...the awful instagram page I found has the exact same morals as the person who wrote the book you told us about. To me it is mind blowing that because Jim and Peter revealed details of their time with their funny, generous and kind best friend and partner , she wrote a book on absolute thin air. It's clear that those that believe her madness are just as mad. spending time on Instagram trying to destroy two people's memory and lives is crazy to me. I honestly feel this person on Instagram is sick in the head and so is the author of that book and the guy that has no taken over her mantel.

Jim was within his rights to tell his story of HIS time with Jim and so is Peter. I totally understand why Jim wrote the book or I can guess why. Given the information that Shaun has kindly confirmed, Jim must have felt very hurt and pushed out of Freddie's life so quickly, from reading Peter's book it appears he also felt very hurt at being pushed out. As he said it was like they no longer had a purpose. By the sounds of it, Jim happily lived a life away from the spotlight so the public had no idea Freddie had a partner for the last 6/7 years. What with things being pushed under the carpet I fully respect Jim for wanting to tell his side of his loving relationship.

I don't care that he told us Freddie and his sexual preference but I appreciate not everyone is the same. Funnily enough it educated me as I had no idea of the terms. I live under a bush it would seem lol

Anyway it should all be water of a ducks back now, and from my point I don't think Shaun should have spoken with the a/c holder directly , if felt he would rather come here and tell us and that to me shows what a good bunch we are that he felt comfortable telling us. He knows that we respect everyone (well nearly everyone) that was in Freddie's life.

I've said this before but I feel Freddie made some really good friendship choices in his life , he wanted to lead a normal life and he got that with Thor , Lee & Co and it seems he got that at home in Garden Lodge.

rant over or as FreddieDarling says 'i'll come off my soap box '

Doughnut, it probably is an Instagram of one of her followers lol. When you see the "gardener" mentioned, it's most likely Mariam Akhundova's legacy - she used to call Jim "the gardener" a lot. Actually, Thor's funny reply about the turnip made me laugh, because it sounds very much like our Russian jokes when we discuss Akhundova's theories:)

RussiaLand I'd say she must be one of her followers.

I wonder if she ever thought to herself 'why would the rock star Freddie Mercury take his gardener around with him' . Mind you people outside of Freddie's trusted friends must of thought it a bit odd anyway as Jim mentioned he was often introduced at the Gardener.

Doughtnut, here comes... I'm even ashamed to say this hahaha:) It's PHOTOMONTAGE! Jim was added into the photos of Freddie in Japan and various other places. Also, he was added into the Black and White Drag Ball video.

I'm sorry about driving you crazy with all this lol:) But now you have an idea about what's going on in the Russian fandom.

Jim was not photoshopped n any of Freddie's photos he was Freddie's boyfriend and husband.His close friends and ex lovers have confirmed this.I believe this topic at hand is a waste of their time and I'm not trying to be rude just giving you my opinion.I think its disrespectful to Freddie as well he spent so many years swinging from a rope trying to find love he finds it and that's what people wanna say.Thats bullshit.

Thor! Reading that snippet of your introduction to Jim just made me so happy. Thank you for that! Also very happy to hear you won't have to pay for the plumbing issues. A good ending to that saga.

Oh poop I've just seen your newer reply lol.

I just find it goes on a bit . Freddie apparently got quite bored once during a Brian solo ; he suggested that he be taken shopping .....funny
