Paddy Bowden, the estranged wife of Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson, has passed away. Dickinson confirmed the news to The Sun in a statement, writing, "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."

The two married in 1990, and had three children together, Austin (vocalist of As Lions, formerly of Rise To Remain), Griffin (of SHVPES), and Kia, before separating in 2018. Bowden was found before 10 AM on Monday morning (5/18) in the Chiswick, West London home the couple had previously shared, and pronounced dead on arrival by London Ambulance Service, as The Sun reports.
