Peaches Geldof was just 25.The television presenter, journalist, and daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates was the mother of two young sons with her second husband, musician Thomas Cohen – Phaedra who will turn two later this month, and Astala, one.
Her father, the Irish musician, author and activist, Bob Geldof, issued a statement earlier this evening: “Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of us all. Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again. How is that bearable?
All deaths are tragedies, but that of youth the most tragic of all.
