How heartbreaking! When police arrived at Peaches’ home on April 6, they reportedly found her with her 11-month-old son, Phaedra by her side.
The death of Peaches Geldof, 25, is still a mystery after the autopsy was not able to reveal what caused the model’s sudden passing. However, more details are being revealed about what authorities found upon arrival, which according to a new report, mirrors the way that her mother Paula Yates was found when she died from a heroin overdose in 2000.
Peaches Geldof’s Body Found Next To 11-Month-Old Son
Peaches’ husband, Thomas Cohen called his wife multiple times and got no answer on April 6, so he sent over a friend to check on her, according to The Sun. When the friend arrived, he immediately called the police.
Next to Peaches’ body was her son Phaedra Bloom Forever, only 11 months old.
“The hope is that Phaedra was so young he wasn’t aware of what was going on,” a friend of Peaches’ told The Sun. “The most important thing is that he’s OK. It is devastating for Tom that he wasn’t there but it couldn’t have been avoided.”
It’s hard not to compare her sudden death to her mother’s, Paula Yates. At 41, she died from a drug overdose and was found with daughter Tiger Lily, then just four, at her side.
Peaches’ Nanny Speaks Out
After the passing of Paula, her children’s nanny Anita Debney stepped in as a surrogate for the children, including Peaches. She had been working with the children since Peaches was only a toddler.
Now, she is speaking out about the shocking death.
“She has been the greatest joy, the greatest blessing, the most tender part of my heart and soul,” she told The Mirror. “I loved her through the good times and the bad. We struggled and survived the darkest of times. She overcame so much and my love and appreciation of her indomitable spirit never wavered. The joy we shared in her beautiful babies was so deep and meaningful and filled both of our hearts with love and devotion. She blossomed in motherhood and excelled at raising the sweetest, happiest babies in the world… You almost made it.”
