of heroin overdose just like tragic mum Paula Yates
Hours before she died Peaches posted a photo online of herself with mum Paula Ya Air Max tes, who died of an accidental heroin overdose aged 41 when Peaches was just 11.
Peaches, 25, admitted to experimenting with drugs in the past and was often labelled as a ‘wild child’.
There were reports that she had to be revived after collapsing from an overdose in 2008 at her home in north London.
There was speculation she might have accidentally overdosed because her body was not as tolerant to the quantities of heroin she had previously taken.
Later Peaches transformed from socialite to doting mum after marrying her second husband, 23 year old musician Tom Cohen, in 2012.
Thursday’s brief inquest hearing, expected to last just 10 minutes, will be held in Gravesend, Kent.
Detective Ch Air Max ief Inspector Paul Fotheringham is due to read a statement about Ms Geldof’s death before coroner Roger Hatch officially reveals her cause of death.
Mr Hatch waited for results of the toxicology tests to determine if Peaches had died of an overdose before deciding to open an inquest.
A full inquest is now due to be held in late July.
Peaches’ funeral was held at the same church as her mother’s with stars including Kate Moss, Jools Holland and Bill Wyman among the mourners.
Her dad, Bob Geldof paid an emotional tribute to his daughter after her sudden death.
He said: “Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us.
“Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see Air Max her again? How is that bearable?
“We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is.
“Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken.
“Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof. Air Max ”
Her husband, Tom Cohen, added: “My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day. We shall love her forever.”
