Paul Prenter: He Wasn’t Just A Manager But A Greedy B*s*ard
Freddie Mercury strikes everyone as a highly artistic and very talented person. He had many visions, ideas, and a lot of passion and surely did make them come true. Freddie, as people who know him personally, described him as a perfectionist when it comes to many things, especially to his craft.
We all know that he was a great performer and incredibly charismatic, though very resistant to share the deeper side to his life and personality.
Behind his loud and flamboyant stage persona. He managed to avoid things which involves anything beyond on-stage and his music.
He’s a great showman who knew how to entertain his audiences, as he also wanted to be entertained by entertaining and lived life to the fullest.
Freddie was generous, kind and a reasonable and because of that he almost cost him his fortune.

Paul Prenter, gerente de Mercury em nove anos (Ele também morreu de Aids – três meses antes da morte de Freddie Mercury) vendeu ao jornal "The Sun" as suas memórias de Mercury, que levou Freddie a extrema raiva. Ele disse ao jornal sobre como Mercury era frequentador de bares e clubes gays e chegava em casa às sete da manhã, raramente sozinho. Segundo Prenter, para manter as forças Mercury usava cocaína. E gostava de fazê-lo na empresa. Toda semana ele tomova drogas de cinco a cem libras. Prenter afirmou que o tempo todo enquanto ele trabalhava com a Mercury, ele não dormiu com qualquer mulher. Ele também disse que os dois ex-amantes de Mercury – Tony Bastin, que ele conheceu em uma boate gay em Brighton, e John Murphy, um comissário de bordo ( Mercury conheceu no avião a caminho de Nova York) – morreram de Aids. Após suas mortes, o pânico de Mercury surgiu. Ele compartilhou seus temores com Prenter , que depois vendeu toda a confiança que Mercury tinha nele à um jornal sensacionalista. – – Paul Prenter era um porre mesmo – – #FreddieMercury #PaulPrenter #BihemianRhapsody #Queen

Prenter was Freddie’s manager from 1977 to 1986, and if you watched the biopic movie Bohemian Rhapsody, it suggests, he influenced Freddie Mercury with a lot of (bad) things. Prenter influence towards Freddie wasn’t just in his music career, they were also somewhat lovers.
Paul Prenter was known as the man who betrayed Freddie by selling his information to “The Sun.” After that, Freddie couldn’t forgive him when Prenter tried to contact him and was explaining that “The Sun” pressed him. Freddie lost his trust and was done with him.
Prenter died in 1991 due to AIDS complications, a few months before Freddie Mercury.
