Marilyn Manson Pays Tribute To Late Father

Marilyn Manson mourned the death of his father over the weekend with a short but emotional message via Instagram.

Posting a childhood photo of him with his father, Manson (real name Brian Warner) wrote on Friday (July 7) that, "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."

No cause of death or other information about Hugh Warner's death was revealed.

On Father's Day last month Manson -- whose mother died during May of 2014 -- posted a photo on Twitter he and his father in matching makeup with the message, "For Hugh so loved the world he made me. Happy Father's Day."
