Peaches Geldof passed away at the age of 25, on Monday afternoon (April 7).
According to BBC news, local police was called to a home near Wrotham, Kent after a friend of the model/television personality called and voiced concern. Officials with an ambulance and emergency responders found her body and she was pronounced dead by the South East Coast Ambulance Service.
“At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden,” the Kent Police said a statement.
Peaches was the daughter of Irish singer-songwriter Bob Geldof and the late British television presenter Paula Yates. She made her modeling debut when she was 18 during London Fashion Week and she later signed as the face of Miss Ultimo in 2009 with a six figure deal. She was dropped from that brand though a year later when nude pictures surfaced and there were allegations of drug use, which she denied.
Bob Geldof has released a statement regarding the shocking death of his daughter Peaches Geldof:
“Peaches has died. We are beyond pain,” he said (via Grazia). “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. How sad that sentence is. Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken. Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof.
Peaches is survived by her husband Thomas Cohen and their two sons – Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months.
