The entertainment industry has lost another good soul, Peaches Geldof was found dead at age 25 in her Kent home on Monday, April  7, 2014. Geldof was the daughter of Bob Geldof, the lead singer of Boomtown Rats and the late TV Host, Paula Yates.

According to Hollywood Life, at 1:35 p.m. on Monday, April 7, 2014, Geldof was declared dead by a South East coast ambulance service crew. The ambulance came to her house with a report of “concern for the welfare of a woman.”

Before the death of Geldof, she even posted on her Instagram account a picture of her and her mother who died from an accidental heroin overdose in September 2000.

Bob Geldof, a musician and the father of Peaches Geldof, released a statement to BBC on behalf of his family.

“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,” said Bob Geldof.

Her full name is Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof. She was married to Thomas Cohen, a musician with two young sons, Astala, one, and Phaedra, who turns one this month.

Cohen also released a statement regarding her wife.

“My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons, Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day. We shall love her forever,” said Cohen as reported by The Guardian.
