Paddy Bowden, the estranged wife of Iron Maiden singer Brice Dickinson, has been found dead at her home in Chiswick, London.
The news was confirmed in a statement from the singer, which read, "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 and Bowden married in 1990, but are believed to have separated in 2018. They were married for nearly three decades. Dickinson is understood to currently reside in France with his girlfiend.
