Early last week we headed reports that Tom Jones had cancelled his Asian tour due to illness in his family. Today it has been announced that his wife Lady Melinda Rose Woodward has died from a short but fierce battle with cancer. She died in the company of Sir Tom and other family members in a hospital in Los Angles, the place the family now call home.
The pair where childhood sweethearts and met at the age of 12 in Treforest, Pontypridd and after marrying when they where just 16 stayed that way for 9 years. Tom who is now grieving in private said Lady Linda was “an unbelievable woman. She’s the most important thing in my life. All the rest is just fun and games“. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time and hope that Tom can perform again soon.
