Bruno Mars’ mother Bernadette Hernandez passed away on Saturday following a brain aneurysm, according to a source at the recording artist’s label, Atlantic Records. The 55-year-old died at Queens Medical Center in Honolulu.
“I wish I could go to every concert, because he’s been travelling the world, and it’s amazing,” Bernadette told the press in Bantay Bata. “He’s seen a lot of places that I’ve never seen before, but I’m glad that I got to see him right here. It’s every mother’s dream to see that their son is the best, and I always thought that, but to hear it from other people to say that to me, I’m so proud.”
