Marilyn Manson Mourns The Death Of His Mother

    May 21, 2014

You would have never pegged Marilyn Manson as the sensitive type; however, it turns out he is.

Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, lost his mother Barbara J. Warner last week, when she passed away after fighting an intense battle with dementia. She was only 68-years-old.

Manson, who is known for his dark side and heavy metal rock music, took to his personal Twitter and Facebook accounts to pay tribute to Barbara. “Mother, to the first and greatest believer in me…I hope I see you again someday,” he wrote on Sunday.

“But not now, because I have more things I promised I would do,” Manson, added. “I’ll make you proud and satisfied that you know that you made the son you wanted. I love you.”

Barbara’s obituary was featured on, and read: “Barbara J Warner age 68, 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. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.”

It is unusual to see the heavy rocker reveal his soft side, but it isn’t the first time he has. Last June, when Paris Jackson, the late Michael Jackson’s daughter, attempted suicide, he reached out to her and offered her his support. “I hope you feel better,” he said to Paris in a statement. “You will be on my guest list anytime you want.” He later dedicated a song to Paris, during one of his concerts in Los Angeles.
