Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson,81, had a major health problem two weeks after his wife’s untimely death.

It has come to light that legendary Beach Boys vocalist Brian Wilson is afflicted with dementia, some weeks following the untimely death of his wife Melinda.

The tragic news comes as Wilson’s family, who are 81 years old, have banded together to suggest a conservatorship to make sure Wilson gets the help and attention he needs.

According to Hello!, court records explore the I Get Around singer’s mental health issues across the years,

describing how he currently faces cognitive impairments that limit his ability to operate normally and engage with others.

On social media, Wilson, 81, shared the news and wrote, ‘My heart is broken.’ Melinda was not just my spouse.

She saved my life. She provided the emotional stability I required in order to pursue a profession. She inspired me to compose the music I was most passionate about.

My heart is shattered. My dear wife of 28 years, Melinda, died away this morning. Me and our five kids are just…

Brian Wilson wrote this on Tuesday, January 30, 2024. Wilson battled mental health issues for decades, including schizoaffective illness and bipolar disorder,

even during the height of his success and recognition with The Beach Boys. Melinda was largely recognized for saving Wilson’s life.

Eugene Landy, Wilson’s controversial psychiatrist, had gained considerable control over Wilson’s career and company by the 1980s.

In addition to prescribing Wilson mental health treatments, Landy also kept a share of Wilson’s songwriting income. Wilson later had him as his legal guardian.

Melinda was the one who likely saved his life by releasing him from this toxic relationship. When Melinda, a Cadillac salesperson at the time, gave Brian a car, the two got together in 1986.

After three years of dating, Melinda subsequently told the Washington Post that Landy ‘decided we were getting too close’ and ended the relationship.

In 1992, Brian and Melinda reconciled, and the Wilson family served Landy with a restraining order prohibiting him from communicating with Brian.

Melinda took on the role of both manager and wife for Brian, giving him stability and improved mental health, which enabled him to launch a late-career musical comeback.

According to recent reports, a united conservatorship has been suggested by Brian’s family,

which includes his seven children and dependable caregiver Gloria Ramos, to support the 81-year-old as he fights dementia.

‘We are confirming that longtime Wilson family representatives LeeAnn Hard and Jean Sievers will serve

as Brian’s co-conservators of the person following the passing of Brian’s beloved wife Melinda,

after careful consideration and consultation among Brian, his seven children, Gloria Ramos, and Brian’s doctors (and consistent with family

processes put in place by Brian and Melinda),’ the Wilson family released a statement to the DailyMail.

How the conservatorship is established will be decided during a hearing scheduled for April 26, 2024.
