(Newser) – British model, TV presenter, and socialite Peaches Geldof is dead at age 25. Police were called to an address in Kent, England, over "concern for the welfare of a woman" there today, and Geldof was later pronounced dead by paramedics, the BBC reports. Geldof, daughter of musician Bob Geldof and TV presenter Paula Yates (who died of a drug overdose when Peaches was 11), was married to a musician and had two young sons with him. "We are beyond pain," said Bob Geldof in a statement. "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest, and the most bonkers of all of us. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?" Police say that her death is "being treated as unexplained and sudden."

Her father, Bob Geldof stated that, "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest, and the most bonkers of all of us...". The law of averages says that living a boundlessly 'wild and crazy lifestyle' will sooner or later catch up with the person living it. Another young life wasted...what a shame.

And who the heck names their daughter "Peaches," anyway? Was Mr. Geldorf preparing her for a career as a stripper? Another celebrity princess famous for ... being famous. Color me bored by it all.
