Sad news to report, as Marilyn Manson's father, Hugh Warner, died today (July 7). Manson (real name Brian Warner) revealed the news on Instagram, where he posted a childhood photo of himself with his dad.

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, posting a photo from their 2015 shoot with Paper magazine on Twitter:

Hugh Warner's death comes three years after the passing of Manson's mother, Barbara, who died on May 13, 2014.

Our deepest condolences go out to Marilyn Manson during this difficult time.
