British television anchor and model Peaches Geldof has been reportedly found dead in her house.
BBC reported that police had been called to Ms Geldof's house in Kent on April 7 around 1:35pm. She was 25 when she passed away, leaving her husband and two sons behind. Her father, musician Bob Geldof said that there were "beyond pain". He confirmed Ms Geldof's death, calling her the "wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest". According to police, Ms Geldof's death is considered to be "unexplained and sudden". Ms Geldof lost her mother Paula Yates when she was merely 11. Ms Yates reportedly had an accidental drug overdose which killed her in September 2000. Ms Geldof admitted several times that she was not able to recover from her mother's death for years.
Peaches Geldof, daughter of Bob Geldof, arrives for the European premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" in London in this November 14, 2012 file photo. Peaches Geldof has died at her home in Kent, southern England, aged 25, British media reported on April 7, 2014.
Ms Geldof started her media career when she was 15. She started writing for Elle magazine. She continued her career even after she left her house at 16. She wrote for The Guardian and The Telegraph. She also wrote for television shows like OMG! with Peaches Geldof on ITV2. Additionally, Ms Geldof also had a modelling career.
Ms Geldof married musician Thomas Cohen. Her older son Astala is just one and the other son will celebrate his first birthday on April 24. Mr Cohen released a statement, saying that he, along with their sons, adored his "beloved wife". He said that they would continue to love Ms Geldof every day. Ms Geldof earlier married another musician Max Drummey. Their marriage lasted only for six months.
While, the reason behind the death of Peaches' mother was drug overdose, one may assume a similar story in her case as well. Peaches, nevertheless, admitted experimenting with drugs when she was a teenager. However, she claimed that it was not "that wild". The reason behind Ms Geldof's death which is so far termed as "unexplained" will be unfolded soon with the forensic report.
