When it comes to being a rock star, not only fans but press start to wonder about relationships. The Iron Maiden rocker Bruce Dickinson has also been a matter of curiosity about relationships.
Dickinson had been married to Paddy Bowden for nearly three decades until their divorce in 2019, followed by her suicide. Now, the rocker is engaged to his current sweetheart, Leana Dolci. In this post, we are exploring the relationship of the couple.
Dickinson’s Former Wife: Paddy Bowden
Before his relationship with Dolci, the rocker was married to Paddy Bowden. Born in 1960 in London, England, she was a fitness instructor and had been married to Dickinson for nearly three decades. However, in May 2019, it was reported that Bruce and Paddy had separated, and they eventually divorced. Their divorce was finalized in November 2019.
Dickinson has three kids with Paddy. There are two sons-Austin and Griffin. Their daughter Kia Michelle was born in 1994.
Not a year after their divorce, Bowden lost her life to suicide on May 18, 2020.
After her passing, the rocker made the following explanation:
“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.”
Despite the statement, Dickinson is believed to have split from Bowden privately in 2018, although their breakup wasn’t made public until November 2019.
Who Is Leana Dolci?
Leana Dolci is a French blogger and a music journalist. During her journalism career, she interviewed bands such as Iced Earth and Dead Daisies. In addition to her writing career, Dolci is also into fitness and works as a fitness and pilates teacher as well. Different sources say her net worth is around $500 to $600 thousand.
Dolci and Dickinson’s Relationship
Although it’s unknown when the couple’s relationship started, it’s now certain that the two are planning to get married. Dolci and Dickinson got engaged in April this year to be married. The singer announced his engagement during an interview with Bosnia And Herzegovina’s N1 TV channel while discussing his performance of Jon Lord’s ‘Concerto For Group And Orchestra’ on March 22.
To secure his relationship, the rocker moved from his hometown to Paris.
