Bob Geldof's daughter's six-month marriage comes to an 'amicable' end

Peaches Geldof and Chester French man Max Drummey are to end their six-month marriage, the couple have announced.

Drummey and Geldof, who married in Las Vegas in August 2008 following a month-long romance, say the divorce is ‘amicable’, according to BBC News.

“After much soul-searching we have made the mutual decision to end our marriage and have agreed to go our separate ways. Our parting is amicable and both of us still respect and care about each other immensely. There were no other people involved in this decision and we both look forward to a future as good friends,” a joint statement said.

A spokesperson also confirmed that Drummey will be ‘continuing his music [career]’ with Chester French.

Peaches‘ father, Boomtown Rats man Bob Geldof, was apparently “incandescant with rage” after the pair’s marriage last year.
