Kent: English Socialite Peaches Geldof died yesterday afternoon at the age of 25. The cause of her death is not known yet. Police, who found her in her Kent apartment, are treating her death as “unexplained and sudden”.Peaches was the second daughter of musician Bob Geldof and Paula Yates. She was married to singer and musician Thomas Cohen since 2012.
Her Husband Thomas said in a statement: “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 every day. We shall love her forever. Thomas, Astala and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen.”
Her Father, Bob Geldof said in a statement, “We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. We loved her and will cherish her forever”.
Several celebrities including TV host Phillip Schofield, singer Lily Allen and actress Helen Flanagan paid tribute to Geldof. Several fans and followers left their tributes on Geldof’s Instagram page.
A Report in The Independent says that 24 Hours before she died, Peaches Geldof had posted on the Internet an Instagram shot of herself as a small child being held by her mother Paula Yates, the pair of them with their hair tied up with colourful bows.
Many people have drawn parallels between the tragic fates of mother and daughter. In an Interview in September 2013, Peaches Geldof spoke a lot about the time when her mother Yates died of an accidental heroin overdose in 2000.
In an Interview with Mother & Baby magazine last month, Peaches Geldof spoke about her relationship with her children. She stated about her unstable childhood and that having her children healed her.
She also spoke about her motherhood, “Becoming a mother was like becoming me, finally after years of struggling to know myself, feeling lost at sea, rudderless and troubled, having babies through which to correct the multiple mistakes of my own traumatic childhood was beyond healing”.
Speaking in a documentary for British TV channel Channel 4, last year she spoke of her mother. She taught Geldof a lot of things her peers never knew. She said that her mother Paula Yates used to behave in an inappropriate, but funny manner in front of her and sisters – Fifi and Pixie.
“I definitely knew a lot more than I should about the ways of the world at the age of eight than a lot of my friends because of my mother’s jokes, let’s put it that way.”, she had added.
