Marilyn Manson has posted an emotional tribute to his father on Instagram

The shock rocker broke the news that Hugh Warner had died over the weekend by posting an picture of the two of them together on Instagram.

Manson says: “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.”
