Profile Bio Text
Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof (13 March 1989 – 7 April 2014) was an English journalist, television presenter and model.
Geldof was born in London in 1989, the second daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates and the granddaughter of Hughie Green. Her sisters are Fifi Trixibelle Geldof and Pixie Geldof. She also had a younger half-sister, Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof.
She grew up in Chelsea, London, and Faversham, Kent, and was educated at Queen's College, London. After moving out of her father's house at eighteen, Peaches rented a flat in Islington, North London, but gave up her lease to move to New York with then-husband, Max Drummey.
Geldof wrote a magazine column for the UK edition of Elle Girl, starting with its April 2004 issue and continuing until the magazine folded in October 2005. From age 14–17 she wrote a weekly socio-political column for The Daily Telegraph, and wrote numerous articles for The Guardian.
Geldof wrote and presented her own documentary TV programme, [Peaches Geldof: Teenage Mind in 2005, which was followed up with Peaches Geldof: Teen America, which aired on Sky One in the UK on 1 March 2006. In 2006, Geldof was placed at number seven in the Tatler's list of Top Ten Fashion Icons for the year, the youngest person on the list. In 2007, readers of FHM voted her the 53rd sexiest woman in the world.
In September 2007 Geldof made her catwalk début modelling for PPQ at London Fashion Week. She was also announced as the face of the Australian fashion line Dotti. Premiering on 19 October 2008 was Peaches: Disappear Here, a MTV One reality show in which Peaches founds a new youth-orientated magazine.
In 2009 Peaches was signed to a six-figure modelling deal to become the face of the Miss Ultimo collection. Michelle Mone, the head of Ultimo underwear said at the time "Peaches was the perfect choice for this campaign. She's young, edgy with lashings of style". The collection was launched at the Debenhams department store in Oxford Street in May 2009. Peaches was subsequently dropped from the Ultimo brand in March 2010 after nude pictures and allegations of drug use were posted on the Internet and published in the media. Geldof vehemently denied the claims and said, "I am disappointed that Ultimo has decided not to extend my contract based on a wildly exaggerated account of a night in Los Angeles five months ago." Mone said that "as a brand that targets young women, we feel it is impossible for Peaches to continue."
In 2011 Geldof presented a six-part series on ITV2 called OMG! with Peaches Geldof, a magazine-format chat and guest show with audience participation.
On 5 August 2008, Geldof married Max Drummey, an American musician from the band Chester French, at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. The couple announced on 7 February 2009 that they had amicably decided to end their marriage. Drummey filed for divorce on 18 April 2011 in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences.
Geldof married Thomas Cohen, lead singer of the South East London band S.C.U.M on 8 September 2012 at the same church in Davington where her parents married 26 years earlier, and also where her mother's funeral was held in 2000. Geldof had two sons with Cohen: Astala Dylan Willow (born 21 April 2012) and Phaedra Bloom Forever (born 24 April 2013, which would have been the 54th birthday of Geldof's mother Paula Yates).
In 2009, she was a Scientologist and Geldof talked about her religion in an interview with Fearne Cotton for the documentary show 'When Fearne Met Peaches Geldof' on ITV2. In 2013, a tabloid said she was a Thelemite at that time.
In a 2013 interview with Elle magazine, Geldof explained how difficult the process of coming to terms with her mother's death was:
I remember the day my mother died, and it's still hard to talk about it. I just blocked it out. I went to school the next day because my father's mentality was 'keep calm and carry on'. So we all went to school and tried to act as if nothing had happened. But it had happened. I didn't grieve. I didn't cry at her funeral. I couldn't express anything because I was just numb to it all. I didn't start grieving for my mother properly until I was maybe 16.
The final photo posted to Geldof's personal Twitter account prior to her death displayed her as a baby in her mother's arms. Following her death in April 2014, her father described her as "never that wild".
News of Geldof's death was broadcast via all major British news agencies at 6pm on 7 April 2014. Geldof died aged 25 at her home in Wrotham, Kent, UK and, at the time of the confirmation, the Kent Police statement read: "At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden". Her father said in a statement, "We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest,
