Bob Geldof - Geldof Faces Police Investigation Over Shoplifting Claims
Bob Geldof's wildchild daughter Peaches is facing a police investigation over allegations she stole a dress from a store in London.
The TV personality is accused of walking into a vintage retailer in Camden and taking a $105 (£70) dress from the rails earlier this month (Mar11).
According to Britain's The Sun, the shop attendant instantly recognised the 22-year-old star and chased after her, but didn't want to leave the store unattended.
The alleged theft was reported to cops and London's Metropolitan Police have confirmed they are looking into the claims.
A spokesperson says, "We can confirm police have received an allegation of theft. It is alleged that on March 4 a woman stole a dress from a shop in Camden Road. Officers are investigating the alleged theft."
However, a representative for Geldof, who has been accused of shoplifting in the past, denies the star was anywhere near the store on the day the dress was allegedly stolen.
The publicist states, "On the afternoon of March 4 Peaches was picked up from her home address at 1.15pm and taken to a voiceover studio in (London area) Se1 where she spent two and a half hours. Peaches knows nothing about this incident which we strenuously deny."
