Tragic news out of England today.
Mother-of-two Peaches Geldof, a British model, writer and TV personality and the daughter of rocker Sir Bob Geldof, has died at the age of 25.
“We are beyond pain,” Bob Geldof told BBC Monday. “She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us.” The grieving father added: “What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?”
Reportedly, police found her inside a home in Kent, England.
“At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden,” Kent Police stated.
Peaches’ mother, Paula Yates, died of a drug overdose in 2000.
“I did experiment with drugs, I did get drunk and go to parties, but I was never that wild,” Peaches told ELLE in 2013. “I could have been, I could have let myself spiral but all the time I remembered what happened to my mum.”
“I remember the day my mother died, and it’s still hard to talk about it,” she added. “I just blocked it out. I went to school the next day because my father’s mentality was ‘keep calm and carry on.’ I didn’t start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16.”
Oddly, Peaches posted a photo with her mother via Instagram on Sunday. “My and my mum,” she captioned the image just hours before her death.
Peaches is survived by her husband, musician Thomas Cohen, and their two sons, Astala, 2 this month, and Phaedra, 1 this month.
The late model posted the following Instagram image just five days ago.
Our deepest condolences go out to the Geldof-Cohen family.
