Dickinson's new muse, Leana Dolci, is said to be 15 years younger than he is.
Bowden and the rocker have three children, all of whom are now adults. She is reportedly vacationing in South America, "having some space" from all the hubbub about her marriage.
Dickinson recently confirmed in an interview that he was indeed living in France "with my girlfriend."
Over the past year, Dolci and Dickinson have gotten serious; she's even met his children. She "has always been a huge Iron Maiden fan," one source told The Mirror, noting that she followed the band "around for nearly 10 years."
In 2017, a couple years after beating stage 3 throat cancer, Dickinson published his autobiography, What Does This Button Do? The book's title is a reference to the singer's unending curiosity, which has led him to success in rock and roll and in other pursuits.
Dickinson is also an airline pilot, and flies Iron Maiden from gig to gig on the band's own plane.
