Peaches Geldof Dead Aged 25

Peaches Geldof has died at the age of 25. The second daughter of musician Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, she was married to Thomas Cohen, with whom she’d had two sons – Thomas and Phaedra – both under two years of age.

On Monday afternoon, police were called to an address near Wrotham, Kent, after alarms were raised over the welfare of a woman there. When they arrived, an ambulance service was called, and the young woman was pronounced dead.

Kent Police have released a statement which read, “At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden.”

Bob Geldof was understandably heart-broken at the news of his daughter’s death, and he released an emotional message:

“We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?”

Meanwhile, Cohen also echoed these remarks with his own statement:

“My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons. I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever.”

In the days and hours leading up to her death, she continued to post regular updates to her Twitter feed, which showcased her life as a mother.

However her last message, which she posted on Sunday, was a picture of her with Paula Yates, her own mum who died of a drugs overdose in September, 2000 when Peaches was just 11:

In 2013, she spoke to Elle Magazine about the tragedy, revealing that she still hadn’t come to terms with Yates’ passing.

“I remember the day my mother died, and it’s still hard to talk about it. I just blocked it out. I went to school the next day because my father’s mentality was ‘keep calm and carry on'”, she candidly commented.

“So we all went to school and tried to act as if nothing had happened. But it had happened. I didn’t grieve. I didn’t cry at her funeral. I couldn’t express anything because I was just numb to it all. I didn’t start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16.”

Geldof had a varied career, in which she has contributed articles to the Telegraph and the Guardian, hosted various television shows, and worked as a model for various brands.

However, she was clearly a proud mother who had spent the last few years dotting over her two infant children, something that she did up until the final hours of her life:
