This is sad, man. I may not like the man’s music but Marilyn Manson is a smart motherfucker, and is probably in a lot of pain right now.
Barbara J. Warner, his 68-year-old mother, died on May 13 after a long battle with dementia.
The singer wrote on his Facebook page earlier today: “Mother, to the first and greatest believer in me…I hope I see you again someday. But not now, because I have more things I promised I would do. I’ll make you proud and satisfied that you know that you made the son you wanted. I love you.”
A May 18 obituary for Manson’s mom claims she “passed peacefully on Tuesday after a long battle with dementia. She was a wife, lover, mother and friend who will be missed forever. Survived by her husband, Hugh A. Warner; and a son, Brian H. Warner. Services were private. The Lamiell Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.”
If you’re a fan and want to do something for Manson, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association in Barbara’s name.
