Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson's estranged wife has died

IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson's estranged second wife Paddy Bowden has died.

Bruce's second wife, Paddy was found dead at the West London house they once shared following a "tragic accident."

London Ambulance Service confirmed that the patient was pronounced dead on arrival.

A spokesperson for the London Ambulance Service said: "We were called at 9:42 a.m. today to reports of a person unwell. We sent two ambulance crews to the scene — the first one arriving within two minutes. Sadly, the patient had already died."

Bruce and Paddy had married in 1990 after two years of dating and shared three children

Dickinson said in a statement: "This is a terrible tragedy which appears to be a tragic accident. 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."

Dickinson is believed to have split from Bowden privately in 2018, although their breakup wasn't made public until last November.

Bruce, 61, now reportedly lives in Paris with fitness instructor and Iron Maiden superfan, Leana Dolci.
