Iron Maiden singer’s estranged wife found dead in London

The estranged wife of Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson died Monday “in a tragic accident” in London.

UK’s The Sun reports Paddy Bowden’s body was discovered at the house they once shared in Chiswick, West London, just before 10am on May 18.

No other details were available at press time.

"This is a terrible tragedy which appears to be a tragic accident,” said Dickinson in a statement. “Our children Austin, Griffin and Kia and I are devastated. Out of respect for Paddy, we won’t be making any further comment at this hugely difficult and painful time for our family."

Following the end of his first marriage, Dickinson married Bowden in 1990; the couple split in 2018, with news of the separation only emerging last November.

The 61-year-old singer now reportedly lives in Paris with fitness instructor Leana Dolci.

Dickinson and Iron Maiden recently cancelled their 2020 touring plans due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic; they have rescheduled a series of European shows to next year.

On June 19, Iron Maiden will expand their ongoing “Live Collection” series with the release of 1985’s “Live After Death” and 2001’s “Rock In Rio” sets; the albums feature audio taken from the 2015 Mastered for iTunes project and the new collections are the first time these versions are available on CD.
