Peaches Geldof dead: Bob Geldof pays emotional tribute to his daughter
British TV presenter Peaches Geldof has died aged 25, leaving a husband and two sons.
Peaches Geldof was the second daughter of musician Bob Geldof and Paula Yates.
“We are beyond pain,” said Bob Geldof, confirming his daughter’s death.
“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?”
Police say the death is currently being treated as “unexplained and sudden”.
Born in 1989, Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof embarked on a media career at the age of 15, when she began writing a column for Elle magazine.
She left home at 16 and went on to contribute to the Telegraph and the Guardian, as well as TV shows including ITV2’s OMG! with Peaches Geldof.
She also worked as a model and, just last week, attended a launch for Tesco’s F&F clothing range in London.
Peaches Geldof was married to musician Thomas Cohen, with whom she had two sons, Astala, one, and Phaedra, who will turn one on April 24.
Thomas Cohen in a statement said in a 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.”
