LONDON (AP) — Model and media personality Peaches Geldof, the second daughter of Irish singer Bob Geldof and member of a talented, troubled family who grew up in the glare of Britain's tabloid press, was found dead Monday at age 25.
There was no immediate word on the cause of Geldof's death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England, but police called it "unexplained and sudden."
In a family statement, Bob Geldof said: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain."
Peaches Geldof had acknowledged using drugs in the past but said in a 2009 interview that she had quit.
