Model, TV personality Peaches Geldof dead at 25, her father says
Model and TV personality Peaches Geldof, daughter of Irish musician and Live Aid organizer Bob Geldof, has died, her father said in a statement carried Monday by Britain’s Press Association.
Police in Kent, England, issued a statement saying a 25-year-old woman was pronounced dead after medics were called to an address near Wrotham.
“At this stage, the death is being treated as an unexplained and sudden death,” Kent police said. “Officers are working to establish the circumstances around the death.”
Bob Geldof released a statement saying his family is “beyond pain,” according to the PA.
“She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us,” the statement reads. “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.”
The mother of two was a prolific poster on Twitter. Her last message Sunday included a photo of her as a child with her mother, captioned “Me and my mum.”
She was a child 14 years ago when her mother died from a drug overdose.
“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,” husband Tom Cohen said in a statement to the British Press Association. “We shall love her forever.”
