Musician Bob Geldof’s agent has confirmed to the Associated Press that the entertainer’s 25-year-old daughter Peaches has died.
According to BBC News, police were called out to Wrotham, Kent on Monday afternoon, after which the South East Coast Ambulance Service pronounced Geldof dead. As of now, the cause of death is unclear and being treated as sudden.
Geldof, who was born in 1989, was the second daughter of musician Bob Geldof and Paula Yates. She began writing a column for Elle Magazine at the age of 15 and later became a TV presenter. Her shows included ITV2’s OMG! with Peaches Geldof. Geldof was also a model and very active in the fashion world.
Bob Geldof gave a statement to BBC, saying, “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.”
Geldof is survived by her husband, musician Thomas Cohen, her two sons, sisters Fifi Trixibelle and Pixie, her half-sister Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof, and her father.
