Peaches Geldof, a model and the daughter of Irish singer and activist Bob Geldof, has died at age 25.
Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne, Bob Geldof's agent, confirmed the death but did not provide any details.
"Peaches has died. We are beyond pain," her father, the famed anti-poverty activist and Boomtown Rats frontman, said in a statement.
"She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us.... Writing 'was' destroys me afresh."
Peaches Geldof was also a celebrity columnist for U.K. publications such as Elle Girl, a fashion writer and occasionally served as a TV presenter.
Geldof developed a reputation as a wild-child second daughter and frequently made the pages of British tabloids for her late-night antics, movements through the fashion and celebrity worlds, dabbling in drug use and social media updates.
Her last Twitter update was posted on Sunday: a photograph of herself as a toddler with her mother and the caption: "Me and my mum."
Police respond to report of concern
Police in Kent reported being called to an address near Wrotham, Kent in southeast England on Monday afternoon. A 25-year-old woman at the scene was later pronounced dead by an ambulance team.
"At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden," Kent police said a statement.
She is survived by her father, who is also behind the Live Aid famine relief concerts in the mid-1980s, three sisters, her musician-husband Thomas Cohen and two infant sons. She was previously married to U.S. rocker Max Drummey.
Her mother, Paula Yates, died of a drug overdose in September 2000.
