Dev Hynes, aka Blood Orange, has paid tribute to his late friend Peaches Geldof.

The 25-year-old journalist and socialite was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent on Monday (April 7). Police said at the time that her death was being treated as "non-suspicious but unexplained and sudden".

Writing on his blog, Hynes recalled time spent with Geldof in London, Los Angeles and New York. In a blog post titled 'XO', he wrote: "She had grown so much, we all watched her grow, and create a beautiful family with Thomas. My heart goes out to him, and the rest of her family. This is just so unfair. It's made me physically sick.
I don't have much more to say, I'm still in shock over this. I just wanted to try and honour her in some way."

Mother to Astala Geldof–Cohen (aged one) and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen (11 months old), Peaches Geldof married former SCUM frontman Thomas Cohen in 2012. She lost her own mother at age 11, when Paula Yates died in September 2000.
