Before and after Peaches Geldof’s death, it has been talked about all over New Orleans that she might have spent at least one night and the next day with the sometimes scandalous artist and writer William S. Tribell. Here’s what we know so far.
The dirty reported that Peaches is even said to have been photographed at the Dungeon bar in the French Quarter together with William Tribell.
According to the rumors, they both looked pretty wasted and were making out heavily and visiting the bathroom behind the hidden bookcase together, and that security was allowing them to do that.
It is said that the two of them have left together, and they have been seen again around the quarter together the very next day.
According to Daily Mail, Peaches died of a drugs overdose ten times bigger than the one that killed her mother, Paula Yates. She died in 2014.
Stashes of heroin, burned spoons and almost 80 syringes were scattered around her home.
Her husband returned from a weekend away to find her dead on a bed, covered in needle puncture marks.
She had been looking after their son Phaedra, and she left him alone for up to 17 hours.
A used syringe was in a sweet box next to her body, and a pair of knotted tights had apparently been used as a tourniquet, according to Daily Mail.
According to the coroner, she had been trying to wean herself off drugs and was clean five months before her death.
Thomas Cohen spoke to The Telegraph and shared his memories of finding Geldof’s body, saying that he continued with normal life and put parenting first:
‘What I can remember, it must have been an hour after I’ve found it, that it’s time for the kids’ lunch. They needed their lunch. So I took the children’s chairs to the table, took the yogurts out of the fridge, the bananas… After that, we drove [to the London house]. Escorted by the police. The routine I had to keep up with the children helped me a lot.’
He also confessed that he shows his sons, who are now four and five, photographs of Peaches often, explaining, ‘this is Peaches, your mother, and that she is no longer with us,’ because he wants them to remember who their mother was.
