Peaches Geldof Dead: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

In 2010, a Reddit user named Thatcoolguyben, posted nude photos and a long story about a heroin-fuelled night he spent with Peaches at Scientology’s celebrity center. When she was 17, the tabloid media reported that she was snorting cocaine. She responded, “I’ve never done coke. My friends do drugs but I never use them. This is really upsetting for me.” In 2008, Peaches was also photographed handing over money to a man who had been accused of being Amy Winehouse’s drug-dealer.

Just one week before her death, Peaches helped launch a clothing line for UK supermarket chain F&F.

Lucie Cave, the editor of entertainment mag Heat, told Channel 4 in the UK, “Peaches was very bright, very opinionated, a tough nut to crack.”

She was the mother of two children. Her son Astala was born in April 2012 and Phaedra was born in April 2013. Her last social media activity was a day before her death, when she posted a picture of herself and her late mother on Instagram. Julia White, head of showbiz at Yahoo, told Channel 4:

The fact that Peaches’ last tweet referenced her mother Paula Yates – with simply a photo of the two of them – makes it all the more poignant.

What’s more, the mum of-two had seemed so blissfully happy in recent years since she gave birth to her two little boys – who clearly were her everything, right until the end.

Her mother, Paula, was found dead of a heroin overdose in September 2000. Famously, Yates left Geldof for INXS lead singer, the late Michael Hutchence in 1995 when Peaches was 6. Writing in Elle Magazine in 2012, she wrote about her mother’s death:

I remember the day my mother died, and it’s still hard to talk about it. I just blocked it out. I went to school the next day because my father’s mentality was ‘keep calm and carry on.’ So we all went to school and tried to act as if nothing had happened. But it had happened. I didn’t grieve. I didn’t cry at her funeral. I couldn’t express anything because I was just numb to it all. I didn’t start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16.

Tragically, Peaches’ then 4-year-old half-sister, Tiger Lily, was found in the same room as Yates. An inquest into Paula Yates’ death indicated that she had just begun to take drugs regularly at the time of her death.
