Peaches Geldof: so young, so soon, so tragic…

At 25, she has made ripples and carved her niche as a contributor for The Guardian, The Telegraph and ITV 2’s OMG!. She was also gaining fast recognition as a model in Tesco’s F&F fashion world in London.  She’s even starting to enjoy her other career, being a new mom again to her youngest Phaedra who is about to turn one on the 24th of this month.  But Peaches’ life was over at a very young and tender age of 25.  She left behind her husband Tom Cohen, lead singer of the band SCUM, who was sad telling, "My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons," in a statement.  She also left behind her dad, Bob Geldof along with her sisters Trixiebelle, Pixie and half-sister Tiger Lily.
Peaches’ death was made known following a concerned report that a 25 year old woman was pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulance Service in Kent.  Police are still under investigation on the circumstances about the cause of death.  Social media sites exchanged bereavement posts among those who early tweeted sympathy were Joe McElderry, Lily Allen, Danny Jones from McFly, Myleene Klass, Chloe Green, Sam Smith and model-friend Daisy Lowe.  DJ Ferne Cotton of Radio One was equally devastated upon learning about the news.  Her father, Bob has this to say about Peaches, “He was fractured so often, but never broken.”  This, despite his grief over the death of Peaches’ mother Paula Yates who died of heroin overdose when she was just 16.  Both were tragic losses and heart breaking indeed for Bob.  It was also reported that Peaches was not yet over her mom’s death and still reminiscing based on her last Instagram photo of herself and mom simply captioned as ‘me and my mum.’
