Wow, how unexpected. What do you think? Drugs?
I don't know what else you could assume at this point.
I've never heard of this person.

sad someone died but never heard of them or anyone else mentioned in the article.

I feel bad for her kids. I mean, look the way Paula passed away, you'd have thought someone would have had an eye on Peaches.
But, yeah she was a known cocaine and heroin user, but also speculation is depression leading to suicide. I care little for her, same as I felt about her mother - but, her kids, and poor Bob. Bet he bloody hates Mondays now...
As for "I'd never heard of him", well that's pretty much on you. He organised Live Aid, was a knight of the British Empire, a massive campaigner and a ###### singer.

I only had heard of her via a couple of songs. Shame she's dead, it's always sad to see people die so young.
EDIT: Nevermind, I had her confused with a recording artist also known as "Peaches."

It's a shame... But I sorta always knew she'd go like her mother did. I wouldn't want to say with certainty that it's drugs related but healthy 25 year olds don't usually tend to fall over dead. Having said that, look at Britney Murphy.

I guess Bob Geldof is only really popular in the UK. I'm just interested to know what exactly she died of.. as 25 is unusually young and she apparently seemed okay last week.

For all you people who don't know who her family is :
Her Dad was Bob Geldof, famous for organizing and promoting Live Aid for Africa. a dual-venue concert held on 13 July 1985. He also wrote and sang with a group of peformers including Michael Jackson, "We are the Children" with all proceeds going to Ethiopia famine. The event was organised by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise funds for relief of the ongoing Ethiopian famine in the late 80's and Also, he played the character "Pink" in Pink Floyd's The Wall Movie, based on the hit multi-platinum selling album.
Her mother, Paula Yates, a British TV personality and writer, was separated from her husband, Bob Geldof, when she was dating, living with Australian rock singer Michael Hutchence, of INXS, when he unfortunately died/killed himself in 1997.
Paula Yates, as well, unfortunately killed herself from a heroin overdose in 2000.
I would say the family has had some issues. The strong person being Bob Geldof.
