British socialite Peaches Geldof has died at the age of 25. Geldof, who is the daughter of musician Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, leaves her husband, musician Thomas Cohen and two young sons, Astala, one, and Phaedra, who will turn one later this month, reports the BBC.

Police responded to a call near Wrotham, Kent on Monday afternoon where they found Geldof. South East Coast Ambulance Service later pronounced the young TV presenter dead.

The British it-girl was known for her style. As a teenager, she wrote a column for Elle magazine and also wrote for the Telegraph and the Guardian.

Geldof also worked as a model. She was married to musician Thomas Cohen and prior to that, musician Max Drummey.

Yates, Geldof’s mother, died of a drug overdose in 2000, when Geldof was only 11 years old. Geldof is also survived by her father and sisters Fifi Trixibelle and Pixie Geldof and half-sister Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof.
