Peaches Geldof, the daughter of world-famous musician Bob Geldof, died Monday in Kent, England. She was only 25, and her father is at an utter loss.

"We are beyond pain," Bob Geldof said in a statement Monday. "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us."

It remains unclear how Peaches Geldof died, but it came as a shock.

Medical personnel were first called to an address in a small town in Kent over "a report of concern for the welfare of a woman" on Monday afternoon.

"A woman aged 25 was pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulance Service," Kent Police said later in a statement released to the media.

"At this stage, the death is being treated as an unexplained sudden death. Police are working to establish the circumstances around the death."

A rep added that no further details would be disclosed on Monday.


Peaches Geldof is best known for her contributions in the fashion and entertainment industries, where she’s worked as a columnist for Elle magazine.

She wrote for UK newspapers the Telegraph and Guardian, and also worked as a TV presenter, hosting a series called OMG! with Peaches Geldof.

This is not the first tragedy to have affected the Geldof family. Peaches lost her mother, Paula Yates, in September 2000 due to a drug overdose.

Peaches Geldof was just 11 years old when Yates passed away, and she later said it was a struggle for her to accept that her mother had died.

"I remember the day my mother died, and it’s still hard to talk about it," Geldof said in an interview with Elle UK in late 2012. "I just blocked it out."

"I went to school the next day because my father’s mentality was ‘keep calm and carry on.’ I didn’t start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16."

Peaches went on to marry rocker Max Drummey, but they split up in 2009 after just six months of marriage and finalized their divorce in 2011.

In 2012, she married Thomas Cohen, with whom she shares two young kids, sons Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, not even 12 months.

Cohen released his own statement Monday and said:

"My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra. I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday."

"We shall love her forever."

Along with her husband and sons, Geldof is survived by her father, sisters Pixie and Fifi Trixibelle, and half-sister Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof.

"My beautiful baby sister. Gone but never forgotten. I love you, Peaches x," Fifi, 31, wrote of her sister alongside an adorable old photo of the two of them as kids.
