IRON MAIDEN’s Bruce Dickinson has tied the knot yet again
As reported by Kerrang! magazine, Bruce Dickinson of IRON MAIDEN has recently tied the knot with his fiancée, Leana Dolci, a French fitness instructor. The couple divides their time between Paris and Bruce’s residence in London.
“I wander round and it all feels a bit bohemian, a bit exotic,” the IRON MAIDEN singer told Kerrang! of Paris, where he has resided as of recent.
The 65-year-old iconic singer disclosed his engagement to Leana Dolci during an interview with Bosnia And Herzegovina’s N1 TV channel back in March. This marks a significant personal chapter for Bruce, whose second wife, Patrice “Paddy” Bowden, tragically passed away in May 2020 in what was described as a “tragic accident” at their former home in Chiswick, West London. London Ambulance Service confirmed her death upon arrival.
Bruce Dickinson and Patrice Bowden had been married since 1990, sharing three children: Austin, Griffin, and Kia. They got married following Bruce‘s earlier divorce from his first wife, Erica “Jane” Barnett. Although Bruce‘s separation from Patrice reportedly occurred privately in 2018, the news of their breakup did not become public until November 2019.
At the time of Bowden‘s passing, 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.”
