MARILYN MANSON Pays Tribute To Late Father: 'He Taught Me How To Be A Man'

Marilyn Manson has confirmed the passing of his father, Hugh Warner. Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, revealed the news Friday (July 7) on his social media accounts, where he posted a childhood photo of himself with his dad.

In an accompanying note, Manson wrote: "Today I lost my father, Hugh Warner. He taught me how to be a man, a fighter and a survivor. He taught me how to shoot a gun. How to drive. How to lead. He will always be the best dad in the world. Somehow and somewhere, I know he is with my mom now. I will keep my promise and never let you down. I miss and love you, dad."

Last month, Manson honored his dad on Father's Day by posting a photo from their 2015 shoot with Paper magazine on Twitter. He wrote at the time: "For Hugh so loved the world he made me. Happy Father's Day"

Manson's mother, Barbara Warner, died in 2014. At the time, he eulogized her as "the first and greatest believer in me."

Marilyn Manson's new album, "Heaven Upside Down", is tentatively due later in the year.
