There was more to Peaches than just being a celebrity

Have your say

Last week I reported that I was unable to get hold of any showbiz gossip whilst in Cuba and I have to say I wish the news I did find out upon my return wasn’t true. I was genuinely upset by the news regarding Peaches Geldof’s death.

The 25-year-old died of what was initially suspected to be a drugs overdose, but which blood tests later revealed not to be the case.

Rumours are rife that Peaches suffered the eating disorder bulimia and that it might have been responsible.

Whatever the reason, it’s absolutely tragic that a girl so young, and who had two children has died so early.

The media get so caught up on the fact she was a celebrity, when all I see is the death of a young woman, who was a wife, mother, daughter and sister. So very sad.
