Peaches Geldof Dies at 25 Years Old, Cause of Death "Unexplained and Sudden"

Share

British model Peaches Geldof has died. The model and TV personality, who was most famous for being the tabloid-friendly daughter of Bob Geldof, was 25 years old. The BBC reports police were rushed to her residence after a caller expressed concern for her health. Her cause of death is not yet known — according to authorities, "At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden."

The model's father, Bob Geldof, himself confirmed the news, in a statement that reads:

Though Geldof is most well known for her roots, she did develop a brand for herself, attracting press for her hard-partying ways. But she also enjoyed quite a few day jobs, hardly getting by just by her name. Not only was Geldof a successful model, having landed several endorsement deals and walked more than her fair share of catwalks, but she also was a writer and TV personality. Impressively, Geldof contributed regularly to The Daily Telegraph as a teen, and wrote for other outlets, like Nylon and The Guardian. She also starred on her own series, like Peaches: Disappear Here and OMG! with Peaches Geldof.

She also played another important role at the time of her death: mom. Geldof, who has been married to S.C.U.M. lead singer Thomas Cohen since 2012, has two children with the musician: Astala Dylan Willow, who is nearly two years old, and 11-month-old Phaedra Bloom Forever. And motherhood was clearly important to the model: Not only did Geldof show off her newborn to Hello in 2013 and on Instagram, on which she's very active, but Geldof's final tweet, posted Sunday, linked to an old Instagram photo of her and her mother, Paula Yates, who died of a drug overdose when the model was just 11. (Her last Instagram contributions were videos of her son.)

Geldof also leaves behind legendary punk rock father, Bob Geldof, and sisters Pixie, Fifi, Trixibelle, and Tiger Lily.
