Peaches Geldof death attributed to heroin overdose

Peaches Geldof passed away at the incredibly young age of 25 earlier this month, but the cause of death was previously unknown as her autopsy was inconclusive and toxicology results were being held up by weeks of processing times. Well, the results are in, and the answer is tragic: Peaches died from a lethal heroin overdose.

From TMZ:

The Times of London reports the tox report will show she died from an overdose of heroin.  Geldof’s mother, Paula Yates, died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000.

The Times’ report angered a Kent city official … who told TMZ the toxicology results were supposed to be confidential until tomorrow’s inquest, saying “if I find out who leaked it I will cut their balls off.”

Oh man, that’s awful. Peaches had said multiple times that she was past her drugging phase, especially since she was the mother of two small children. I know drug addiction is an awful thing, and addicts need help, not condemnation, but it is really, really selfish – particularly when you’re a parent. If you’re alone in life, do what you want. It’s still idiotic, but at least you’re only hurting yourself. When you’ve got babies and you leave them without a mother – especially when you were robbed of a mother growing up for the very same reason – that’s just beyond fucked up.

I hope the kids are okay and able to find peace.

Peaches Geldof dies, aged 25

Oh man, this is just awful. It was revealed on Monday afternoon that 25-year-old Peaches Geldof, daughter of the late Paula Yates and Live Aid organizer and musician Bob Geldof, had died suddenly. So far, there’s no word on what caused her unexpected passing but the investigation is ongoing.

From CNN:

“At this stage, the death is being treated as an unexplained and sudden death,” Kent police said. “Officers are working to establish the circumstances around the death.”

Bob Geldof released a statement saying his family is “beyond pain.”

“She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us,” the statement reads. “Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh.

“What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever.”

How terrible. Peaches leaves behind two small children of her own, sons Astala and Phaedra who are both under the age of 3, and a husband. Considering Peaches herself admitted that she never came to terms with her own mother’s death from a drug overdose 14 years ago, this has an even sadder dimension to it. Here’s hoping her family is able to find some amount of peace, though I can’t imagine that’ll be forthcoming.

Everyone is Pregnant!!!

Evil Beet Gossip new writer Bobby Pfeiffer pregnant photos, picturesHello world!

My name is Bobby and I will be your new celebrity gossip writer as of the beginning of February. I know that you are going to be ruthlessly critical, and I expect nothing less. Until recently, I, too, used to tear apart celebrities and authors alike in the comments, but consider yourselves warned! To get this job I had to bribe and coerce and blackmail people, and when that didn’t work, I sent Sarah a severed horse head, so no funny business.

Just kidding. I am, in fact, quite harmless. My specialties include photography, rock and roll music, and kittens*, and my goal for this year is to somehow manage to work the word idempotent in a sentence. It also happens that I am in a sort of a Jessica Simpson situation at the moment – not even nine months after I had my first baby, my husband went ahead and knocked me up again. This very much leads me to the theme of my very first post for Evil Beet – pregnant celebrities!

1. Evan Rachel Wood

There was no love lost between Evan and, well, almost everyone on Evil Beet so far, but I like the gal ever since I saw her in Thirteen. She is expecting her first child with husband Jamie Bell sometime in the Summer.

The sloth-loving Kristen Bell is preggers with her first child from Dax Shepard, and if crying uncontrollably at the sight of sloths isn’t a good enough reason to like her, Kristen is also outspoken on issues like same sex marriage and animal welfare. She’s due in the Spring.

Model Amber Rose is expecting a very laid back (and possibly tattooed) child with Wiz Khalifa, and is ready to pop any minute, forever changing the the way her vagina photographs.

4. Jenna Dewan-Tatum

I don’t have any idea who she is, but they say her husband is hot so there you go.

5. Holly Madison

Former Playboy bunny/stripper/reality star Madison, known mainly for her utter lack of style, is expecting a girl in March.  For the delivery, she’s rumored to either wear a mustard yellow floral nylon dress, or nothing.

Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge had a rough first trimester but she seems fine now, unless you refer to the latest portrait of her, in which case she doesn’t.  I really hope Kate puts on some weight during this pregnancy; it makes me feel uneasy watching her right now.  She looks … sort of malnourished.  Or maybe I’m just jealous because I know I’ll turn to a whale long before I reach full term.  A Great Blue Whale.

Dahl is pregnant with her second child, but I have a feeling that despite of being Roald Dahl’s granddaughter and a former plus-size model, many of you might not consider Sophie a celebrity.  If that’s the case, let me remind you that she was on the cover of Vogue, like, 500 times, and that makes her at least more famous than you and I.  Besides, you gotta love how much taller she is than her husband.

8. Busy Philipps

I LOVE Busy. She is so pretty and real, and she always steals the show even though she’s not necessarily in the A-list headlines all the time.

This here British celebrity who is famous for being famous is going to have another baby boy, and oh! god. She intends on naming him Phaedra.  Let us all roll our eyes on a count of three.

No, Malin wasn’t impregnated by French-kissing Tom Cruise -she is expecting in June by her legitimate husband who, presumably, put a bun in her oven the conventional way.

I suspect that Jessica actually learned the trick of getting pregnant so soon after giving birth from Britney, but then again Jessica’s fiance is quite cute and I don’t see why the hell not.  Jess is going to have a boy.

And finally, the worst, most terrible celebrity couple, Kimye. Typing this nauseates me, so I’m just going to give you a funny picture of Kim and leave it there.  There’s nothing much to say about it anyways, except maybe to loosely quote Chelsea Handler who predicted that, considering its parents, this baby will be “tanned and very hairy.”
