Peaches Geldof, the daughter of Boomtown Rats frontman Bob Geldof and late TV presenter Paula Yates, has died at the age of 25, NME reports.
The news was confirmed shortly after 6pm today (April 7) by BBC News.
Police have said they were called to an address near Wrotham, Kent following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman on Monday afternoon. The 25-year-old woman was later pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulance Service.
A statement from Kent Police reads: "At this stage, the death is being treated as an unexplained and sudden."
Mother to Astala Geldof–Cohen (aged one) and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen (11 months old), Geldof was married to former S.C.U.M. frontman Thomas Cohen.
A noted socialite, Geldof began her media career writing a column for Elle Girl magazine at 15. She later presented her own show on ITV2, "OMG! with Peaches Geldof."
Her father, Bob Geldof, said: "We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us.
"What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?"
Channel 4 journalist Ed Fraser has quoted Geldof's husband, Thomas Cohen as saying he will bring up the couple's two children "with their mother in their hearts everyday." He commented:
Thomas Cohen: My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself & her 2 sons and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday
