Peaches Geldof: Friends Were Worried About Her Shocking Weight Loss

Tue, April 8, 2014 9:51pm EST by 19 Comments

After an April 8 report claimed that Peaches’ tragic death may have been caused by her extreme diet, a close family friend reveals in a new interview that she was worried about Peaches’ self-esteem and her shocking post-baby weight loss. Could an eating disorder have led to the 25-year-old mother of two’s untimely passing?

After Peaches Geldof died suddenly on April 6, many people were quick to speculate that she died of a drug overdose, as her mother, Paula Yates, did in 2000. But a family friend, Gerry Agar, says that Peaches actually had another troubling thing in common with her late mother: eating issues. “I was worried about [Peaches’] weight loss,” Gerry says in a revealing new interview.

Peaches Geldof’s Weight Loss: Friends Were Worried About Her Self-Esteem

After police revealed on April 7 that Peaches’ tragic death didn’t appear to be a drug overdose or a suicide, the coroner is exploring the possibility that she died of natural causes. However, a new report alleges that Peaches may have put her life at risk with her strict diet. 

Now a new interview with Peaches’ family friend Gerry Agar seems to support that theory. Gerry tells the UK’s Daily Mail that Peaches may have been suffering from an eating disorder before her death, just as her mother did before her.

“I was worried about [Peaches’] weight loss. You could see that she was struggling with self-esteem issues — just as Paula did,” Gerry says. “She even had fillers in her lips just like Paula did at the end of her life.”

Gerry says that people have drawn a parallel between Peaches and Paula because they “both did drugs,” but “it was the eating issues that they really had in common.”

“Paula was very, very badly anorexic, and it was really only when she was first with Michael [Hutchence, the Australian musician whom she left ex-husband Bob Geldof for] that she loved herself enough to stop.”

Gerry says Paula may have been bulimic as well. “I remember Bob Geldof once told me that he used to help her to take care of her teeth because all of the vomiting made them really bad.”

Could Paula have passed her eating issues on to her daughter?

“Peaches lost such a lot of weight and then talked in interviews about going on juice-only diets. I remember very well Paula’s efforts to lose weight after Tiger [her fourth daughter] was born were extreme,” Gerry says. “She was determined to drop the ‘baby weight’ — and she lived on nothing, literally just a brussels sprout a day.”

Peaches Geldof: ‘At Risk Of Cardiac Arrest’ Because Of Odd Diet

Peaches revealed in 2011 that she had started dieting by living off nothing but vegetable juices for weeks at a time, in an effort to shed baby weight after giving birth to her two young sons 13 months apart. “I do juicing. You juice vegetables and then you drink it three times a day. It’s gross. I do it usually for about a month,” Peaches told OK! magazine.

“I have days when I wake up and think, ‘I’m so fat,'” Peaches added in the interview.

Sadly, Peaches’ intense weight-loss efforts may have unwittingly been putting her life at risk. “Surviving on fruit is a very dangerous diet,” Cath Collins, a spokeswoman for the British Dietetic Association, told Mail Online at the time in 2011. “Peaches is at high risk of electrolyte abnormalities which could lead to acute cardiac arrest. It is what kills anorexics.”

So could this explain why Peaches died at such a young age? All we can say is, something unusual — like Peaches’ eating issues — must be at play, because there is nothing “natural” about a healthy-looking 25-year-old suddenly dying.

Our thoughts continue to be with Peaches’ loved ones during this difficult time.

Peaches was ridiculed in the media for her weight, it doesn’t surprise me at all. I was shocked to see how thin she had become after her 2 children and suspected some restriction was going on. If it is due to weight loss then this is a tragedy even more so that her 2 babies have to live without their Mum due to the pressures on women’s looks. Sickening.

She had her sons in 2012 and 2013. How could she possible talk about post-baby weight loss in 2011?

I do not agree on the authors writing “healthy looking”. If you look at picture from the last years, the women was literally bones covered by just skin. Nothing healthy looking about that.

No one would claim prisoners from concentration camps to look healthy just because they had some clothes covering their severe underweigt bodys.

Are people today so used to images of underweigt women that we see it as something normal instead of unhealthy?

It saddens me that once again, a young person has succumbed to this dreadful notion that thin is better. Losing too much weight, too quickly can have serious consequences. Sadly, in an effort to fit in to ridiculous ideas on what is beautiful, too many young people starve themselves and their bodies suffer due to too much weight loss.

Glad this story has come about

The sudden or everyone shocked by death and news shows showing photographs of her looking healthy from around 4 years ago had me angry, you only have to google her and recent years she looked so terrifyingly ill and thin but face gaunt and then came the plastic surgery. Thes disorders of young girls obsessing over their looks and being perfect and then all gets to much and the health factors take them down into a hole.
I am glad this is being written about than usual drug use because she is stated once when teenager briefly experimented with drugs as who wouldn’t with all her opportunities. But instead seems a the clear transformation and sickness she had. This seemed obvious why ddi no one intervine she looked like a cancer paitent or an old woman. The crazy thing is when she was always a tiny bit on bigger side of average but perfectly healthy looking she was the first to speak out about victoria beckham and how she didn’t belive in the starve yourself that women or young girls should and then goes down that exact road. When you have it you don’t see it and she in numerous interviews when people claimed were shocked at her appearance laughed it off. Not everyone lives of junk food but not everyone looks like she did and if they do people are shocked and see how unwell and think there is something wrong. Glad the truth is coming out though a bit late as she couldve had treatment and been helped.

Was Peaches Geldof murdered by the illuminati for exposing pedophiles just months ago? Peaches, daughter of legendary rocker Bob Geldof, had recently tweeted the names of two mothers who had offered their babies to be raped by an alleged illuminati member who later admitted to the crimes after being outed by Geldof. For those who don’t know Geldof, she was considered the ‘Paris Hilton’ of the UK, and she was highly involved in exposing pedophilia in the illuminati realm. Ian Watkins pleaded guilty to several child abuse charges, including the attempted rape of a baby. He is also accused of feeling up a 1-year-old, possessing and creating child porn, and plotting to rape a baby. Peaches had flirted with the Satanic Sex Cult OTO, which indulges in child sacrifice,even getting an OTO tattoo. but had clearly thought better of it by November 2013. She was also involved in scientology. An illuminati backed religion

Can we revisit the use of “healthy-looking 25-year-old”? If authorities are considering aneroxia as a cause for her sad and untimely death, as this article suggests, she was far from healthy. If we want to help people suffering from eating disorders, we need to stop the media from pushing the message that being under weight is healthy and desirable.

So stupid to say she died because of juicing. Peaches Geldof was plain murdered as many people surrounding her knows. She exposed many pedophiles, some of them famous names, just 5 months ago before she was murdered on her tweets. Please do research. Tragic death of a brave young woman.
