Television presenter, journalist and model Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof died at her home in Kent today. Police have stated that it was “unexplained and sudden” and at this time no more is known about the circumstances. Peaches was the mother of two very young children, Astala and Phaedra, and wife to S.C.U.M frontman Thomas Cohen. Cohen stated earlier today: “I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever.”
Her father, the musician and political activist Bob Geldof, also gave a statement about his second daughter: “We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us”. Peaches’ mother was Paula Yates who died in 2000 when she was only 11.
