Daughter Of Bob Geldof, Peaches Found Dead
Another young soul has left us.
Daughter of British singer, Bob Geldof and television host, Paula Yates was found dead earlier this afternoon. After a concerned telephone call, police have called the death of 25 year young Peaches Geldof ‘unexplained and sudden’ at her home in Wrotham, Kent southeast of England.
Being the second daughter of Geldof, by the age of 15, she began writing a column for magazine Elle. Within a year she was contributing to The Daily Telegraph and The Guardian newspapers. Peaches, who was also a model, leaves behind her husband, Thomas Cohen (singer for band S.C.U.M.) and two children, Astala (23 months) and Phaedra (11 months):
“My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra, and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day. We shall love her forever.” ~ Cohen
Peaches was previously married to Max Drummey of the band Chester French in a Las Vegas Chapel, the marriage lasted about 6 months and ended in 2009. Peaches had admitted to using drugs back in her younger days but in 2009 she stated she had quit. She also claimed that she never had an addiction problem like her mother, Yates (who died of an overdose at the age of 41 in 2000 – Peaches was 11 at the time).
Bob Geldof who played Pink on the Pink Floyd movie ‘The Wall’ rose to fame back in the 70′s as the lead singer of the band ‘The Boomtown Rats’ stated,
“Peaches has died. We are beyond pain.”
“She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever.” ~ Geldof
Said statement was signed Bob, Jeanne (partner), Peaches sisters Fifi, Pixie and half sister Tiger Geldof.
