Peaches wrote in Elle UK (she penned a column for the magazine) that she did indeed experiment with drugs, but was mindful of her mother’s substance abuse, and consequent death. “I did experiment with drugs,” Peaches said in the glossy magazine. “I did get drunk and go to parties, but I was never that wild. I could have been, I could have let myself spiral but all the time I remembered what happened to my mum.”

In 2011, the Daily Mail reported that Peaches had befriended the late Freddy McConnel, who died from a heroin overdose at age 18, and even gave him money to buy drugs.

“Freddy formed a friendship with Peaches Geldof, the 22-year-old, wild-child daughter of Sir Bob Geldof,” according to the Daily Mail. “Extraordinarily, the Mail can reveal that Peaches this week telephoned Freddy’s father to confess that — although she had nothing whatsoever to do with his death — she had given money to Freddy to buy drugs in the months before he died.”

In 2010, photos were leaked that showed a nearly-nude Peaches, after an alleged heroin-fueled sex party.

Fans Speculate Peaches Geldof’s Death

Fans are grieving and expressing their strong opinions on Twitter, in speculation of the young mother’s cause of death. Many believe that Peaches was battling with drugs.
