(Newser) – Heartbreaking details about Peaches Geldof's final moments are trickling out: The Sun reports that her 11-month-old son, Phaedra, was near her, playing, when her body was found. "The hope is that Phaedra is so young he wasn’t aware of what was going on," says a source, according to Radar. Geldof's husband, Thomas Cohen, was out of town with their other son, Astala, at the time. He asked a friend to check on his wife when she didn't answer her phone.

Meanwhile, you may have heard the Daily Mail-fueled rumors that "juice fasting" could have been a factor in Geldof's death, as well as concern over how thin Geldof was in recent days. But in a 2011 interview that was previously unpublished, Geldof slammed rumors that she was anorexic, E! reports. "Do I really look that thin? Let's be honest. How did I do it? I just stopped eating McDonald's and f---ing s--- every day," she said, adding that she was much less healthy before: "I had the heart of a 90-year-old gangster. ... People are like, 'Peaches is scary and anorexic.' Not really. It's ridiculous." (But, of course, that didn't stop a doctor not involved in the case from speculating that Geldof may have been bulimic.)
