It has been reported and confirmed that 25-year-old British media personality Peaches Geldof has died. Police say they responded to a call in Kent reporting the concern of the “welfare of a woman” on Monday. Geldof was pronounced dead by the South East Coast Ambulance Service.
The cause of death is currently unknown, but Kent Police are saying, "At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden.”
Peaches is the daughter of TV presenter Paula Yates, who died of a drug overdose in September 2000, and Irish singer-songwriter Bob Geldof. Peaches followed in the steps of her mother by presenting on television and writing various columns for Elle, The Daily Telegraph, and The Guardian. She was married to musician Thomas Cohen and the couple shared two children together.
Here is her father‘s official statement on the matter:
“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.”
On Sunday Peaches left behind a message on her Twitter and Instagram accounts, which was an image of herself and her late mother:
