Model and socialite Peaches Geldof is found dead at her home aged 25
UK Daily Mail ^ | April 7, 2014 | Mia De Graff

Posted on 04/07/2014 10:49:58 AM PDT by C19fan

Peaches Geldof has died today at the age of 25. The mother-of-two, daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, was found by police at her house in Wrotham, Kent, at 1.35pm. Kent Police said the death was 'sudden' and 'unexplained'. In a heartbreaking statement her father Bob said: '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.'

She was the daughter of singer Bob Geldolf. She provided with her lifestyle plenty of material for the British tabloids. I would not be surprised if drug related death

Why do Brits always make a statement in the form of a Question? “You know it’s very very sad isn’t it?”

Well anyway, it is sad that most probably a suicide from the evidence that her last tweet was a photo of her and her mother who died of an overdose when the girl was only eleven.

Only known due to her father and her public antics. Gel doff himself wasn’t ever much musically.

One thing to stress is these are representative of the new guard, the new post Christian Europe.

Serious drug use, such as heroin, is considered normal activity.

Yes. It is sad.

Little kids growing up without a mother. A life gone so wrong that suicide is the only recourse... having that hanging over THEIR heads now for the rest of their lives - as it hung over hers.

It’s frigging horrible for all concerned.

I normally don’t have a lot of compassion for drug-induced death - it’s easily preventable. But my heart goes out to the little kids. They don’t deserve this at all.

Whatever her mental state, it must have been awful and all-consuming, and she didn’t even consider the impact it would have on her children. And she continued an awful cycle that her own mother started.

Actually, I think Carradine did a Hutchence. Hutchence died in 1997, Carradine in 2008.

I suspect a brain aneurism. I personally know several women who in their 20’s collapsed suddenly because of it. 2 died quickly, and 2 survived.

In our western Idiocracy this constitutes more serious news than a powerful CA Democrat supplying terrorists in the US with serious weaponry.

And that my friends is why the halcyon years of the west are over. Bread & circuses for a populace that voluntarily subjugates itself.

This person’s lost life is sad, but so what? People of much greater value to society die (unfairly) every day without a bit of notice.

Bob Geldof is an annoying twit, but today he has my sympathy.

Her (Peaches’) kids even more so.

Judging from the behavior of her elders, she was raised in a toxic environment. Whether their drug use damaged her congenitally, she was just inherently damaged, or if she abused drugs herself, the end result is the same.

She had two young children.

Not talking about Wayne Knight. Talking about John Pinette, the comedian, who was in a Seinfeld episode. Pinette just died.

You’re thinking of the Newman hoax. This is a different guy. John Pinette. He was a pretty famous stand-up comedian who happened to be in the last episode of Seinfeld.

They still use the term "socialite"? I thought that went out in the 1960s along with debutante balls and Jackie Onassis.

I realize we don't know the cause of her untimely death yet but the warning signs were there.
