Shocking news from IRON MAIDEN camp.
According to U.K.’s The Sun, Bruce Dickinson‘s estranged wife Paddy Bowden has died.
Bruce‘s second wife, Paddy was found dead earlier today (Monday, May 18) at the home they once shared in Chiswick, West London, 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 in Chiswick. 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: Austin, 29, Griffin, 27, and Kia, 28. They tied the knot after dating for two years following Bruce‘s split from first wife Jane.
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.”
