Geldof, TV presenter and British model passes away
Peaches Geldof, the second daughter of Irish singer Bob Geldof, died unexpectedly on April 7 at her home in Wrotham, Kent. She was 25. According to the police, the death of the media personality was “unexplained and sudden,” Stuff.co.nz reported. She leaves behind two young children, sons Astala Dylan Willow, born in 2012, and Phaedra Bloom Forever, born in 2013
Peaches Geldof’s husband Tom Cohen, lead singer of the defunct London punk band S.C.U.M, has said that he will bring up the couple’s two sons with their mother in their hearts every day. He said in a statement that he and their two sons Astala and Phaedra shall love her forever, Stuff.co.nz reported.
At age 19, Peaches married Max Drummey, a vocalist with US indie rock band Chester French, at one of Las Vegas’ drive-thru chapel while the two were on holiday. Their marriage lasted just six months before ending in 2009.
Geldof had publicly acknowledged in the past that she had not come to terms with her mother Yates’ death. She had told Elle magazine in 2012 that she remembered the day her mother died, and it’s still hard to talk about it.
Geldof said that she just blocked it out, asserting that she went to school the next day because her father’s mentality was to keep calm and carry on. She said that she didn’t grieve, didn’t cry at her funeral and couldn’t express anything because she was just numb to it all.
Geldof said that she didn’t start grieving for her mother properly until she reached 16 years of age. Geldof was married twice, and leaves behind second husband, Tom Cohen, lead singer of the defunct London punk band S.C.U.M, and her two sons.
