From The Mail Online:

 In 2012, his mother Jer Bulsara revealed from her Nottingham, UK, home a different person to the bisexual, wild-living performer on stage during Mercury younger years.

‘Freddie kept a strict division between his work and his home all his life,’ she told The Daily Telegraph.

‘If I ever asked he would say, ‘Mum that is business, and this is family.’ He was kind and very respectful both to myself and his father.’

The photos also show the singer with his Queen band mates on tour. 

Mercury died aged 45 in 1991 of AIDS-related pneumonia. His 70th birthday would have been next month.
