Bernadette Hernandez — mother of Bruno Mars — died unexpectedly Saturday at the age of 55.
Hernandez suffered a brain aneurysm. She passed away at the Queens Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. Hernandez was earlier reported to have been taken to hospital Friday after a suspected heart attack.
Hernandez was a hula dancer and singer who immigrated from the Philippines and nurtured Mars’ musical talents from a very young age.
Earlier this year, he talked to Gulf News about their relationship, revealing that his favorite career moment was being able to pay her back for believing in him. “I always wanted to buy my mom a house, and that was the first thing I did with my first big check,” he said.
“That was the most beautiful moment ever. I bought my mom a nice house in Hawaii, and that was before I got anything for myself,” he continued. “I had to take care of mom.”
May her Soul Rest in Peace! Amen!
