Paul Young’s wife Stacey Died Of Brain Cancer At 52
Paul Young’s wife Stacey has died at the age of 52 after a two-year battle with brain cancer, his family has confirmed.
A statement explained: “The singer Paul Young has today announced that his wife, Stacey Young, sadly passed away today after a two-year fight with brain cancer.
“Stacey died peacefully at home surrounded by family, friends and her four children: Levi, Layla, Grady and Jude. The family respectfully ask for privacy at this time.”
Young met Stacey on the video shoot for his second single Come Back And Stay in 1983 and married four years later, after her brief fling with motorbike stuntman Eddie Kidd.
Together they have three older children – daughters Levi and Layla and son Grady.
Paul and Stacey’s marriage went through a three-year blip starting in 2006, when they separated and Paul moved out of their shared home.
During that time, Stacey had her fourth child, son Jude, with Israeli businessman Ilan Slazenger, who moved in to the house she’d previously shared with Paul.
She then reconciled with Paul in 2009 and the pop star became Jude’s stepfather.
