Peaches Geldof’s family react to her sudden death

Many are still shocked over the news surrounding Peaches Geldof this evening, who died aged 25.

The socialite and model’s death was announced by police this afternoon, who are treating the television presenter’s death as “unexplained and sudden”.

Peaches father, Bob Geldof released a statement over his daughter’s sudden death:

“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.”

Peaches Geldof was married to musician Thomas Cohen, who she had her two children, Astala and Pheadra with.

Thomas also released a statement about his wife’s death: “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.”
