Peaches Geldof Dead: Model And Daughter Of Musician Bob Geldof & Paula Yates Dies At 25

Posted: Updated:

Peaches Geldof, British TV presenter, model, and daughter of musician Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, has died at the age of 25, reports the BBC.

The 25-year-old was reportedly found dead at her home in Kent Monday afternoon, reports TMZ. Details surrounding the death are still unclear. Kent Police are treating the death as "unexplained and sudden."

Geldof is survived by her husband Thomas Cohen, her two children Astala Geldof–Cohen and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen, her father, and her sisters, Fifi Trixibelle Geldof, Pixie Geldof and half-sister Tiger Lily Hutchence-Geldof.

Just hours before her death, Geldof posted a photo of herself and her mother, who died in 2000 at the age of 41, as the result of a heroin overdose, to her Instagram account. (UPDATE: The photo, as well as Gelgof's other Instagram pictures, have been taken down.)

In a statement, confirming her death, her father told the BBC:

"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. Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof."

This is a developing story.
