So sad. Peaches Geldof was found dead at the age of 25. Did the English model and TV presenter die from a drug overdose?
Peaches Geldof, 25, was pronounced dead on Monday, April 7, near Wrotham, Kent. The mother of two infants is the daughter of musician and humanitarian Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, who tragically died from a drug overdose in 2000. Were drugs the cause of Peaches’ shocking death?
Peaches Geldof — Did She Die From A Drug Overdose?
The world is utterly shocked by the sudden death of Peaches Geldof. The English model and journalist, 25, tragically passed away on Monday, April 7, and was found dead by the Kent Police.
The cause of death has yet to be released, but the Kent Police are treating Peaches’ death as sudden and unexplained.
“Police were called at 1:35pm on 7 April 2014 to an address near Wrotham following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman,” the Kent Police told HollywoodLife.com, in an official statement. “A woman aged 25 was pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulance Service. At this stage, the death is being treated as an unexplained and sudden death. Officers are working to establish the circumstances around the death.”
Due to Peaches’ young age and sudden death, fans are speculating if the 25-year-old died from a drug overdose. Peaches is sadly no stranger to drugs, as she has publicly spoken about her own drug use and her family’s history of drug abuse in the past.
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

If Peaches Geldof’s death is drugs related then she’s a complete and utter idiot doing that sort of thing when she has two young children

@annie_g0ldman tell me how else a 25 year old could be found dead in their home, especially when her mother went that way too?
