Star Tributes Pour In For Peaches Geldof

She captioned it: "My beautiful baby sister ... Gone but never forgotten. I love you, Peaches x [sic]"

The two sisters are the daughters of Sir Bob Geldof and late model Paula Yates. Younger sister, Pixie Geldof, and half-sister Tiger Lily, who is Paula’s daughter with Michael Hutchence, are yet to break their silence on Peaches’ unexpected passing.

"Peaches has died. We are beyond pain," Sir Bob Geldof said in a statement. "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us."

Thomas Cohen, the singer of the rock band SCUM who married Ms Geldof in September 2012, said: "My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever."

Scores of friends and peers of Peaches Geldof also expressed their sadness on hearing of her tragic death via social media.

Today police said the death of the mother of two was being treated as “non-suspicious, but unexplained and sudden”. A post mortem examination will be carried out “in the next few days”, a spokesperson for Kent Police said.

Ms Geldof’s body was discovered after police were called to the large house in Wrotham, near Sevenoaks, at 1.35pm yesterday.
