Peaches Geldof, daughter of musician Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, dead at 25
In a statement from her father he comments, “She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us,” he said. “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.”
Peaches often spoke of how she struggled to come to terms with her own mother’s death from a heroin overdose in 2000 when she was just 11 years old. Her last tweet was at 10.17am on Sunday with a photograph of her as a child with her mother.
The former wild child leaves her husband rock singer Thomas Cohen and their two sons Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, who is almost one year old. Peaches said in 2009 that her drug-taking years were behind her.
So, was this “sudden” and “unexplained” cause of death possibly due to drugs? Was Peaches not able to stay away from their lure? Or was she not able to get past the feelings left by her mom’s absence at this point in her life as a she is now a mom herself?
Hopefully we will have an answer soon!
