Peaches Geldof, a writer, model and designer who is the daughter of musician Bob Geldof, has died at 25, the BBC is reporting. A London-based “It Girl,” Peaches —whose full name was Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof — most recently wrote for Nylon magazine and penned a column for Elle as a teenager. She is the daughter of Geldof and TV host Paula Yates, who died from a drug overdose when Peaches was just a girl. According to the BBC, emergency personnel responded to a call from her home in Kent and announced her death was “unexplained and sudden.” Peaches was married to musician Thomas Cohen from the punk band S.C.U.M. and has two children under the age of two. She was briefly married to Max Drummey from the band Chester French. Our thoughts go out to the Geldof family. [BBC, Daily Mail UK] [Image via WENN]
Update, 1:45p.m.: Her father, Bob Geldof, released a statement: “We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, cleverest, wittiest and most bonkers of all of us.” [Mirror UK]
I’m sorry to have to break the news to everyone, but celebrity super-couple Peaches Geldof and Eli Roth have canceled their plans to get hitched. I know! I can hardly believe it either! They seemed so promising: she, a British tabloid fixture whose occupation (model? presenter? writer?) eludes me, and he, the man credited for giving birth to “torture porn.” Maybe it was the age gap; she’s 21, and he’s 38. Publicly, sources are saying they split because of work obligations. About this, I am dubious. In any case, I’m going to need at least 48 hours to recover from this astonishing turn of events.

Oh, the irony. Last night, British socialite Peaches Geldof attended a store opening, and later lamented on Twitter: “Tonight was too indie. Even for me. Never though I’d say it but I’m gonna have to – too many hipsters spoil the b[r]oth.” Too indie, you say? Then what’s that ridiculously bizarre fur tail doing on your purse? Because that looks pretty hipsterific, if you ask us.
For a moment we thought the accessory might have been part of the Louis Vuitton SS 2010 collection, which included dangling fox fur tassels. But no, the LV designs were larger and featured dyes in splashy colors. Geldof’s tail appears to be the real deal, au naturel. Coming soon to an Urban Outfitters near you.

You may not have heard of Max Drummey, so I’ll fill you in. He’s a guitarist for Chester French, a pretty decent band. He has hipster hair. And he married and divorced Bob Geldof spawn/Miss Ultimo model Peaches Geldof earlier this year. But now you can just file him away in your brain as a dumbass.
Max mouthed off to the Daily Mail about Chris Brown’s alleged beating of Rihanna, and said:
“We’re guys who have been hurt by women and I’m glad people like Chris Brown are finally taking it back and hurting women.”
