The estranged wife of Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has died in a ‘tragic accident’, the family has revealed.

Paddy Bowden was found dead at their marital home in Chiswick, West London. The former couple have three children together.

Bruce Dickinson, 61, who split from Bowden last year following 29 years of marriage, called the loss “a terrible tragedy,” adding that the cause of her death “appears to be a tragic accident.”

“Our children Austin, Griffin and Kia and I are devastated,” Dickinson continued in the statement, released through The Independent newspaper in London.

“Out of respect for Paddy we won’t be making any further comment at this hugely difficult and painful time for our family.”
