Who was Stacey Young? Paul Young's wife who died at 52 following brain cancer battle | The Sun

THE wife of pop star Paul Young died in early 2018 after suffering from a two-year battle with brain cancer.

Stacey Young died peacefully at home in Hertfordshire surrounded by her family on January 26, 2018.

Who was Stacey Young?

Paul met Stacey, 52, a model – who, at the time, was known as Stacey Smith – on the video shoot for his second single Come Back and Stay in 1983.

They married while they were living in Los Angeles in November 1987, but split in 2006.

During that time, Stacey had a son, Jude, with Israeli businessman Ilan Slazenger, who moved into the house she'd previously shared with Paul.

But three years later she then reconciled with Paul in 2009 and the pop star became Jude's stepfather.

In 2016, Paul was on Loose Women to set the record straight about Stacey's 'affair', insisting it was a mutual decision to take time apart.

"When she said she wasn't happy she said she wasn’t happy. So I knew and or we knew, and we discussed it and things went on from there," he told the panel.

"But to then constantly see it was an affair, it wasn't an affair."

Speaking about her death on This Morning in 2018, Paul said: “We just made the best of it for those two years. And as a family, we agreed that we [he and his children] wanted to get working and do something positive.

"That’s what she was proudest of. She was really happy for me when things started to pick up again. [We are a close family] we see each other all the time.

“When she first got ill, we all said we’d cut out sugar, because it aggravates cancer, so we did that as a show of solidarity really with Stacey."
