Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, 81, ‘suffering from dementia’ weeks AFTER the singer’s wife Melinda died


The legendary Beach Boys mastermind and singer Brian Wilson is reportedly suffering from dementia.

Two representatives for the 81-year-old performer — who is one of the most acclaimed songwriters of the 20th century — and his family have said in a court filing that Wilson is suffering from a ‘major neurocognitive disorder (such as dementia),’ according to documents obtained Thursday by The Blast.

Details of the Court Filing

In the filing, the hitmaker’s team requests that a conservatorship be set up for the legendary musician to help treat the alleged condition.

The news of Wilson’s condition comes after he suffered a tragedy late last month when his longtime wife Melinda died at age 77.

Statement From Family

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), we are confirming that longtime Wilson family representatives LeeAnn Hard and Jean Sievers will serve as Brian’s co-conservators of the person.

Reason For The Decision

‘This decision was made to ensure that there will be no extreme changes to the household and Brian and the children living at home will be taken care of and remain in the home where they are cared for by Gloria Ramos and the wonderful team at the house who have been in place for many years helping take care of the family.

‘Brian will be able to enjoy all of his family and friends and continue to work on current projects as well as participate in any activities he chooses,’ they concluded.

Wilson’s Health

Wilson has a decades-long history of mental health issues and has struggled with substance abuse in the past, and the filing says he would allegedly be unable to care for himself as his condition deteriorates.

Wilson’s representatives say in their filing that he is currently being treated for dementia.

‘The (proposed) conservatee does NOT have the capacity to informed consent to the administration of medications appropriate to the care and treatment of major neurocognitive disorders (including dementia),’ they claim.

Wilson (far right) is considered one of the greatest songwriters of the 20th century for his innovative work with The Beach Boys (pictured in 1964)

‘The deficits in mental function assessed … significantly impair the (proposed) conservatee’s ability to understand and appreciate the consequences of giving consent to the administration of medications for the care and treatment of major neurocognitive disorders,’ they added.

They also say that Wilson is not able to attend hearings on the matter ‘because of medical inability.’

Court Hearing is Scheduled

Following the filing, a hearing will now be held, at which time a judge will determine whether or not to grant the request to institute a conservatorship.

Court records indicate that the hearing is currently scheduled for April 26, 2024.
