Peaches Geldof Reportedly Killed By Heroin Overdose

peaches geldof died from heroin overdose according to inquiry

It looks like the mystery surrounding the tragic and unexpected death of Peaches Geldof has finally been solved.

According to sources familiar with Thursday's inquest, the 25-year-old's death was the result of an overdose on heroin.

Ugh. That's just so shocking and sad, especially considering Peaches' mother Paula Yates overdosed on heroin and died in 2000.

In case you already blocked the bad memories out of your head, the starlet was found unresponsive inside of her London home earlier this month with her 11-month-old son still by her side. While an autopsy was conducted days after her death, those results were for some reason inconclusive.

We aren't sure what new evidence came to light showing that heroin was indeed responsible for her unfortunate passing, but our deepest sympathies continue to go out to all those affected by her death.

R.I.P., Peaches!

    Re: Tracy – Regardless of what you think of her parenting skills do really think its okay to talk shit about someone who is dead?

  6. robin says – reply to this


    I consider myself a compassionate person and try not to be judgemental. With that being said, I really can't find an ounce of sympathy for her. Her family left behind…yes! But to do lethal drugs while your caring for your infant child…sick! I hate to say but seems to me they will be better off without her. People selfishness knows no bounds. Addiction is not a disease, it's a choice no matter how hard!

    It's so sad the poor girl never got over her mothers death then she ended up the same way

    "those results were for some reason inconclusive."

    Because they couldn't find an immediate medical issue, like an enlarged heart or other signs of disease or infection.

    "We aren't sure what new evidence came to light showing that heroin was indeed responsible "…

    Because toxicology reports take a lot longer than the mere physical examination. The laboratory has to do quite a bit of work, and they are testing for a lot of different things, and those tests have to be done according to protocols which will stand up in court in necessary.

    All addicts realize that their choices could kill them one day, but always seem to think it won't be today….and then it is. Sad for her family, but not surprised she ended this way. Hope her child can break the cycle of senseless addiction over love. Blessings and hope for their future.

  11. 11

    Very sad. Obviously addiction runs in her family. It's tragic that her children will grow up without a Mom the same way Peaches did for a good part of her life. The similarities are very sad.

    Something sounds fishy. Why didn't this show up in the initial autopsy?

  13. Maria says – reply to this


    Re: Christina – Well, its proven that is aint true. Heroin addiction - or addiction in general - depends on some neurobiological processes in the brain. Trying to explain it in a very simple way u could say that the brain of a heroin addict works wrong, there is a dopamin-misbalance going on for example. This misbalance exists already before the addiction starts and people try to cure it themselves - for example with heroin… BUT - now comes the big but - it IS your decision how you are going to live with your addiction. Do you want to be a rundown junkie, who steels, lies and fucks up people? Or are you gonna try to bother the people around u as less as possible with your addiction? Cause its YOUR addiction, its YOUR problem - really no need to involve innocent people! And thats the point: It IS your decision to have kids, always, no matter what. Living a life as an addict means theres one really simple fact: You can't have children, period. So I really don't blame Peaches for her addiction - but for her selfish choice of giving her children a heroin addict as mother…

  14. Tina says – reply to this


    So wrong of you to put this story up when whether this is true or not hasn't been confirmed. The official report conclusion hasn't even been announced. Going to be quite a few people in trouble if you're wrong!

  15. Jon says – reply to this


    you sad people, Is this site even credible? I've looked on a few credible news websites and can't find anything on this story pointing towards a cause of death, ur all slagging of a dead person for reasons that have not been put out there as fact, this site is bs

  16. RussM says – reply to this


    To the hard hearted folks making such cruel and sad comments about Peaches, her addiction if true, her death and her family - you have no idea! Be thankful that your family has not gone through such difficulty and pain. Look to your compassionate side, not your judgemental side. Love people and change the world to one that tries to help people in trouble, not stand in your ivory tower and pass judgement on things you know nothing about from any real experience!

    Re: Dhani Barrett
    Why not? No sympathy here either, she died by her own hand and no one else's.

  18. Tracy is a fat slut says – reply to this


    Re: Tracy – You're a fucking perfect waste of your father's sperm.

  19. texasannie says – reply to this


    Doing heroin with your 11-month near you is beyond selfish. Lucky the kid didn't get into it and/or get hurt while she was dying. And after hyper mom did the same. Drugs are just stupid. Those kids will learn their mom choose drugs over them.

  20. Satine says – reply to this


    Re: Dhani Barrett

    People don't just magically sprout wings and a halo because they've died. People have their entire lives to contribute towards how they are remembered when they are gone. If you spend your life doing stupid, irresponsible things.. well then being remembered that way is the price to pay for it.

  21. M says – reply to this


    I'm not at all surprised. :/

    And look at her husband…he looks like a user as well. Hope the kids get taken away and raised by someone else.

  22. Megan says – reply to this


    Re: Tracy – Exactly how does relapsing make someone a bad mother? Idiot.

  23. Melissa says – reply to this


    Re: robin – Oh, ok Robin! MDs, PhDs and other experts agree that it's a disease, but Robin says it's not - so let's change the AMA's guidelines of the definition of addiction. What an idiot.

  24. howard says – reply to this


    No malice intended, but peaches is a stupid bitch. How could you do that to your kids, wtf.

  25. KT says – reply to this


    It's not an addiction the second she picked up the needle the first time…she made that choice.

  26. Hayley says – reply to this


    ”We aren't sure what new evidence came to light showing that heroin was indeed responsible for her unfortunate passing”

    Uh, probably a toxicology report?

  27. RIP says – reply to this


    Some people are addicted to drugs, when others are obsessed by losing weight!
    Please! Tell me you're not in one or both of these category..

  28. Soosie says – reply to this


    I have said all along heroin overdose. No surprise here. Just saying.

  29. pressure drop says – reply to this


    sources? what sources? who are these sources? not sure what new evidence came to light, so you shouldn't be posting these articles until you ARE sure…

    [re=66Re: asa – 75357]Re: asa[/re] She wasnt a bad mom, she had so much going for her, such a sad loss, people should look at their own life before judging others.

  31. Ana says – reply to this


    Re: Tracy – She was a human being and people shouldnt judge What about her father and her family how do you think they feels just hope they dont read this

  32. Elizabeth Hatpin says – reply to this


    no way, I heard her talk about her kids and she and I were alinged on our parenting philosophy. No way she took herion with her children there. no way at all!!

  33. karen horne says – reply to this


    a child in a womans body ,maybe it was just to much on mothers day for her ,maybe she hid behind the smile ,regardless what her passing was caused by she is still the beautiful daughter of bob and paula ,and such a great loss ,god bless you peaches my you rip now with your mum hugs to you both hugs karen gary and the children to xx

  34. Lyn Rabbetts says – reply to this


    Re: karen horne – cannot understand why people on this site are being so cruel, whats the difference between her overdosing on heroin and a mother or father committing suicide and leaving their families and children behind,no matter how someone dies families and children are left to suffer, just because she was a drug addict shes targeted, leave the poor girl alone and let her rest in peace like she deserves to do

  35. kipper says – reply to this


    Re: Peach-i – She DIED of a HEROIN OVERDOSE, with her SON next to her, its not tragic, she was a horrible mother and the kids are surely better off.

  36. J says – reply to this


    Had every sympathy up until now. Nothing but a posh, selfish baghead. Poor kids

  37. J says – reply to this


    Re: Dhani Barrett – At the end of the day she had 2 choices, drugs or her family. She might not have been a horrible mother, she clearly loved her kids but she was a weak, selfish one that valued her heroin fix more than her sons. She's not the only person to ever have a parent die, its no excuse for putting her kids through the same ordeal

  38. J says – reply to this


    [re=6675486]Re: KT[/re Absolutely agree. The first time isnt an addiction, its a selfish lifestyle choice

  39. amihet says – reply to this


    F.Y.I. some of you people are morons! Addiction to alcohol or drugs is a disease. This disease is just as deadly as cancer, hiv or diabetes. Guess what, without treatment people die. So how in the hell would you feel if one of you had cancer or aids and was told that you were going to die from it and someone said good riddance to you. No wonder the world is fucked up because people lack compassion, knowledge and common sense.

  40. smiffy says – reply to this


    Ahh, called it from the moment I heard she was dead.

  41. Beccii says – reply to this


    I'm disgusted at some of the comments here. Now Ivdespise heroin as much as the next person but I would never judge a user. Do you know how addictive that substance is? It takes over people's life and yes the need for heroin surpasses the love of a user's children at desperate times. That is a sad and shameful fact. But it isn't as simple as saying "Right I've had a child so I'm going clean". It's an addiction - one of the most gripping at that. She deserves sympathy. Unless you have been one of those people you shouldn't pass judgement because you have no idea what it is like to live in their sad world of desperation and despair.

    Re: Tracy – Idiot ! You don't even know what kind of mother she was, and it seems YOUR mother did a very bad job on you if you feel happy about someone's death.

    Re: kt – Oh and you know that how exactly ? There is no official report yet, moron!

    Re: kipper – Where is your proof ?

  45. Bob says – reply to this


    Re: jayman419
    Exactly! The article has a rather dismissive style of writing implying the autopsy wasn't done correctly to cover the author's own lack of knowledge.

  46. Jerome says – reply to this


    Re: robin – You obviously do not understand addiction, especially heroin addiction. Easy for you to sit on your moral high horse and throw stones at the dead, be thankful you never know the depths of where people have been when taking and thinking about taking drugs. Is it not testament to where she was at in her head if she "chose" to take that over taking care of her child as you are implying? Think ho low she must have been to take something that killed her mother in front of her child.

  48. peacenik says – reply to this


    What a tragedy…. for an already tragic family but, I find it hard to believe that her husband/family didn't know anything about it. Heroine isn't subtle!! And where was the paraphernalia she must have been using, at the death scene? Something not right here

  49. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    Stupid drug addicts…have $$ and everything, and goes and shoots sh*t up her arms…dumb dumb dumb…..

  50. karen says – reply to this


    I think it is entirelly selfish to touch dangerous drugs, you know you will be hooked on, she has two young sons, now they will grow up unhappy, just like she did, I do feel sorry for the family though.

    For the people here who insist on judging others with no basis in knowledge for their ridiculous statements and who accomplish nothing other than betraying their tender age and lack of any real life experience…this is the definition of addiction recently published by the American Medical Association - The largest body of Psychiatrists and other mental health professionals in the world…Clearly stating that addiction is a 'chronic disease'…God you self-righteous muppets really do embarrass yourselves.

    " Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors.

    Addiction is characterized by inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioral control, craving, diminished recognition of significant problems with one’s behaviors and interpersonal relationships, and a dysfunctional emotional response. Like other chronic diseases, addiction often involves cycles of relapse and remission. Without treatment or engagement in recovery activities, addiction is progressive and can result in disability or premature death."

    We none of us have the rite to judge…Most of us have problems ,be it overeating,smoking, drinking,undereating, we do not know what her life is like.Far too quick to judge people when we don't know the circumstances

    Re: normal3789Re: M – Is it not enough that people are saying such cruel things about a girl who died from a disease? (Addiction is a disease). But to assume that her husband is a user just because he has long hair and looks a bit scruffy? Peaches may have a history of drug use, but he does not. Stereotyping on how someone looks is cruel too.

    Peaches Geldof had an unhealthy obsession with her mother, Paula Yates – it’s almost as if she was determined to relive her mother’s life.

    - Both of them were journalists, television presenters and models.

    - Both of them were known for their partying lifestyle.

    - Both of them suffered from eating disorders.

    - Both of them had lip fillers towards the end of their lives.

    - Both of them were attachment parenting advocates.

    - Both of them got married in Las Vegas and at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church.

    - Both of them died of an accidental heroin overdose while alone with their youngest child.

    - Both of them were buried at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church.

    In Peaches’ last interview she said “There are so many parallels between us. I feel her living through me all the time because we are just so similar.” Peaches had also previously said that becoming a mother had made her feel closer to Paula than she had ever felt, but it had also made her miss her more than ever.

    May she rest peacefully in the arms of her mother.

    Re: Tina – Addiction only occurs if a person starts to use a known addictive substance - everyone knows that heroin is addictive, can kill, fucks lives up etc etc. It's not addictive if you NEVER try it - what you've never had, you never miss. Peaches Geldof, like any other addict, knew the risks before she had her first hit - pure selfishness. No amount of excuses will ever be enough to justify what she, her mother and thousands of other dead addicts have done to their families.

    Re: Megan – Women who relapse are the best mothers ever. Top rung. Every man's dream wife and every kid's dream mom. Every state social worker works overtime trying to place orphaned children into the homes of drug addicting women. They get fired if they dont.
