Bruno Mars’ Mother Dies of Brain Aneurysm

Bernadette and Bruno

The mother of Bruno Mars died in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Saturday. Bernadette Hernandez was 55 years old and suffered a brain aneurysm, a rep for the Grammy-winning singer told The Associated Press.

Hernandez was a hula dancer and a singer who immigrated from the Philippines and was an early supporter of her children’s music careers. Mars has four sisters who make up the group The Lylas, and a brother who plays the drums in his band the Hooligans.

Mars’ peers took to Twitter to share their condolences. “Sending my love and condolences to @BrunoMars at this difficult time! I’m sincerely praying for you bro! #1Love,” tweeted Rihanna.

In a video posted to YouTube, a four-year-old Bruno can be heard singing a song for his mother called “I Love You Mom.” “I love you mom, you are my favorite girl,” he sings on the sweet dedication.

Mars is set to kick off “The Moonshine Jungle World Tour” on June 22, but it’s unknown if the tour schedule will be affected by his mother’s passing.

    Bruno!
    You are precious in “I love You Mom”. Sorry for your loss. Your Mom raised a fine young man. I am a Great Grandmother and have a sweet little great grandson who rinds me of you. Don’t ever change a thing with your music, it appeals to All Ages which is part of why you are so successful. You are UNIQUE and different from anybody else. You have cornered a market all your own. I will raise Camryn listening to your music just like you listened to Michael Jackson. My Granddaughter (Camryn’s Mom)grew up listening to 50′s and 60′s music just like you. Now I can continue your tradition. You are still a precious and sweet young man! I wish you all the success and happiness you have earned it. Can’t believe the idiots that would not sign you to a record deal. Life sometimes throws a curve and you reaped the benefits..Love your music and I will buy all of your CD’s for Camryn and ME of course.

    Bruno, God is able to see you through this and if you ask Him to keep you in perfect peace, He will. I know…I lost my mom at the age of 14. Years later, I now smile every time I think of her.

    Hey Bruno,
    I am SO SORRY to hear about your mom!:(( I feel for you and my heart goes out to you and your family at this very difficult time. Last year my mom who is 61 now just out of nowhere had a brain aneurysm and a stroke. The Dr. gave me 20% chance that she was going to make it. Her entire life flashed in front of me. I was in shock! 3 weeks in Neuro ICU she pulled through, Thank God she made it! She has an amazing story and I am blessed I could be on this journey with her.
    My heart just goes out to you, Bruno. My mom and I are huge fans and we will be at your concert July, 14th at Excel in St. Paul. Can’t wait to see you!
    To put a smile on your face, my son who is 7 has your toothbrush which sings just the way you are:)
    You are so talented!
    Hang in there!You and your family are in my heart, thoughts and prayers. I’m very sorry for your loss.
    See you Sunday!
    Fondly,
    Heidi Happe, Minneapolis

    Bruno, I’m so sorry for your loss. I lost my Mother 12 years ago and I know how hard it is. With time you will smile again. Keep yourself strong. GOD is with you and will give you comfort in this time of sorrow. Take the Bible and Pray the Psalms,you will get stronger and be better. May God’s Mercy be with you always.
    God Bless You and Keep you safe.
