BRUNO Mars' mother has reportedly died after suffering a brain aneurysm.

The 'Locked Out Of Heaven' hitmaker's 55-year-old mother Bernadette Hernandez passed away at the Queens Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii on Saturday (01.06.13) after being rushed there in a critical condition on Friday night.

Bernadette, who immigrated from the Philippines to work as a hula dancer, was originally reported to have had a massive heart attack but sources have told gossip website that she died from a brain aneurysm.

The 27-year-old Grammy-winner has been very open about his love for his mother in the past and even wrote a song called 'I Love You Mom' about her, in which he refers to her as a "superstar" and "my favourite girl."

Bruno, whose real name is Peter Gene Hernandez, also has Bernadette's name tattooed on his shoulder.

Family friend Anita Sojot previously said that the family were gathering to be at Bernadette's bedside, suggesting that her condition was serious.

She said: "Bernadette is in hospital and the grandkids are all here, I'm looking after them. The family is on its way here right now and we are going to discuss what to do next."

Bruno, who is set to kick off on his Moonshine Jungle world tour in Washington D.C. on June 22, has yet to comment.
