(Srsly, what was with that sniffling??)
We were so hoping this isn't where this story would end up.
After reporting Bruno Mars' mother had been hospitalized, it seems she has lost the battle.
Bernadette Hernandez reportedly died yesterday due to a brain aneurysm at the age of 55. It was originally reported that she was taken to a hospital after suffering a heart attack.
A publicist for Bruno's label, Atlantic Records, commented under anonymity that she died in Honolulu at Queens Medical Center.
No other information is available as of now.
Our thoughts are with Bruno and his family during this difficult time.
