Peaches Geldof Found Dead At Her Home In Kent

Writer and TV presenter Peaches Geldof has died at the age of 25.

The daughter Sir Bob Geldof was pronounced dead at the scene when paramedics arrived at the star’s address in Kent.

Ms Geldof was well-known for her work in the media, writing for Elle Magazine, Daily Telegraph and the Guardian as well as numerous appearances on TV shows.

She also dabbled into modelling and was a familiar face at London Fashion Week.

She was married to SCUM lead singer Thomas Cohen, with whom she had two sons Astala and Phaedra.

Reacting to the news, her devastated father in a statement said;

“Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. 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.”

Geldof was a prolific tweeter and only on Sunday, she posted a photo on her Instagram page of herself and her mother, Paula Yates who died of a drug overdose when Peaches was only 11.


Her husband Thomas Cohen paid tribute to his wife saying  “My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever. Thomas Astala and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen.”

In a statement, Kent Police said: “Police were called at 13:35 BST on 7 April, 2014 to an address near Wrotham following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman.


“A woman aged 25 was pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulance Service.

“Officers are working to establish the circumstances around the death.”
