Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has confirmed that his wife, Paddy Bowden, has died in a “tragic accident”.

Paddy, the mother of Bruce’s three children, was found dead at their marital home in Chiswick, West London earlier today, Monday 18th May.

Bruce 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.”

London Ambulance Service also confirmed they had attended, but that the patient was pronounced dead on arrival.

A spokesperson told The Daily Mail:

“We were called at 9.42am today to reports of a person unwell in Barrowgate Road, 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 married in 1990 after dating for two years but separated in 2019.

Thoughts and deepest sympathies are with Bruce and his family at this extremely difficult time.
