Peaches Geldof's Former Publicist Calls Her "A Charming Young Lady" Following Tragic Death

At only 25 years-old Peaches Geldof tragically died on Monday afternoon (April 7th).

The daughter of musician Bob Geldof was found dead in her Kent home after police were responding to a report of "concern for the welfare of a woman."

"At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden," said a statement from Kent Police, who are currently investigating the cause.

Ever since this tragedy became public knowledge, many people have paid tribute to Peaches, including her former publicist.

Ray Levine told the BBC, "I'll always smile, because she was a very endearing, charming young lady."

Peaches, who is a mother to two young boys Astala, 1, and Phaedra, who will turn 1 on the 24th April, had a successful career in the media, from contributing to The Telegraph and Guardian newspapers to presenting on TV shows such as 'ITV2's OMG! with Peaches Geldof.'

The last time the public heard from her was on Sunday evening when she shared a photo on Instragam of herself, as a young infant, in her mother's arms. The caption read; "Me and my mum."

Peaches' mother, Paula Yates, died from a drug overdosed at the age of 41 in September 2000, and when speaking with Elle Magazine in 2012, she revealed it has taken years for her to come to terms with this.

"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'," she said. "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."

Peaches' father, the 'Boomtown Rats' rocker, released an emotional statement to confirm her death, which read: "We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us."

She is survived by her two sons and husband, S.C.U.M rocker Thomas Cohen.
