Peaches Geldof - a successful television presenter, writer and model - died at the age of 25. Geldof is the second daughter of famed-musician Bob Geldof and television presenter and writer Paula Yates. She is survived by her husband Thomas Cohen, who is the lead singer of the band SCUM, and two boys, according to a BBC report on Monday. She was briefly married to rock musician Max Drummey.

Her father said that the family is beyond pain as he confirmed her death. He said that Peaches was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and most bonkers of everyone in the family. He went on to say that she was a beautiful child. He said:

How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?

Authorities were called to a location near Wrotham, Kent in England on Monday afternoon after a ‘concern for the welfare’ call was made. Police have said that Peaches Geldof’s death is being treated as unexplained and sudden.

Born as Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof in 1989, she had a media career which began when she was only15 years old. At that time, she began writing for Elle magazine. After leaving home at the age of 16, she became a contributing writer for Telegraph and the Guardian – two very popular publications. She also had television shows during her short life. The shows included ITV2’s OMG! with Peaches Geldof.
