Bob Geldof's daughter Peaches is dead and he is "beyond pain." On April 7 it was reported that the British socialite was found dead at her home outside Wrotham in Kent, England. According to Yahoo! News, Live Aid founder Bob Geldof and his family are having an extremely hard time dealing with the sudden death of Peaches.
"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," Bob said after he learned of his daughter's passing.
Bob Geldof and Peaches knew the pain in losing a loved one. Peaches' mother, Paula Yates, died of a heroin overdose 14 years ago. It's hard to imagine losing a parent at such a young age (Peaches was just 11-years-old) and, a mother of two young children herself, she knew the importance of being a parent -- and she was able to experience that unconditional love of her own. It is unknown who will care for her children.
Peaches' death is being called "unexplained and sudden" but authorities do not suspect any foul play. An exact cause of death will be determined by a coroner.
Bob Geldof shares pain over Peaches with family, friends, and fans. To lose a child is a devastating loss. More in the video above.
