Freddie Mercury Lost Virginity To Man At Surprising Age


Late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury’s personal life has become a media focus since the release of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ last year, and the Mirror published an article that explores Paul Prenter, Mercury’s one time lover and manager, who unloaded on Mercury’s personal life in the film on television in the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ film, though in reality he sold his allegations to a newspaper.

He claimed Mercury had slept with hundreds of men and had his first homosexual experience as a teenage boy.

“Freddie was so scared he would catch [AIDS].”

“It was more likely that I would see him walk on water than go with a woman. Once his friends started dying, Freddie knew his wild life had to stop.”

Prenter also spoke about Mercury’s daily life, “Freddie told me his first homosexual relationship happened when he was at boarding school in India when he was 14,” he said. “While we were touring there would be a different man every night, He would probably go to bed by 6am or 7am – but rarely alone.

“He has a fear of sleeping alone, or even being alone for long stretches.”

Mercury quickly fired Prenter, feeling completely betrayed by his longtime confidante. Prenter died in August 1991 from AIDS complications, just a few months before Mercury succumbed to the disease in November 1991. Prenter’s quotes came at a time during rampant homophobia, before the LGBTQ community gained more rights in the United States.


  1. Another smear article about Freddie? Why? And why do you have to use the worst photo of the poor man you can find, when he was in the worst aids ravaged days at the end, when there are thousands of pictures you could have used of him looking much healthier than this?? I am starting to agree with one of the commenters on a previous Freddie article that the guy writing this is homophobic or something.

      • Isn’t prenter also the one who blatantly lied sew Freddie in the media to make him look bad after they broke up? This whole article doesn’t make sense. There’s no way it can be true as Freddie never knew about his sexuality until he was much older.

        • Yes Paul Prenter was the one who told continuous lies about Freddie. My exact point, Brett is homophobic and uses his hatred as an agenda to trash the iconic legend Freddie Mercury.

        • Yeah, this is coming from the guy who was fumed Freddie cut him out of his life so he immediately ran to the tabloids to smear campaign Freddie. They depicted this series of events in the movie also.

    • Yes that was me making the claim Brett is homophobic. This should be brought to the attention of the LGBT community to seek sanctions against this hack. He doesn’t do any research at all he picks and chooses information from dead people that sought to discredit Freddie like Paul Prenter, Lesley Ann Jones and Barbara Valentine. Freddie Mercury was actually raped at the boarding school so this hack is also victimizing someone who was a victim. It’s called victim shaming. This sorry sack of garbage should actually stick to his trash profession of fake professional wrestling as he seems suited to delve into falsehoods.

  2. Hey Brett Buchanan, I’m curious to know, What did “Howard say” about it?

    • How can people be so cruel. Freddie was a great entertainer. Great looking man and personality plus. I am sure there were alot of people jealous of his success. Get over yourself and let him rest in peace.

  3. The only way this homophobe can get away with his smear campaign of Freddie Mercury is hiding it under the guise of journalism. He feels this protects him from consequences. Wrong promoting hatred because he’s homophobic isn’t covered under journalism. As a matter of fact it is considered a hate crime as his purpose is to stir up more homophobic people to act towards the gay community. I am considering a petition to put a stop to this anyone interested please reply to me.

  4. Why do people feel the need to smear someone who is dead. Freddie was a beautiful, talented and gifted artist. He is also dead. Why does anyone care about who anybody else sleeps with?

    • Unfortunately because of the movie there is renewed interest in further exploiting Freddie, when I am sure Brian May’ s intention was only to introduce this gifted man to a new generation & celebrate the unique music they created.
