Fifi Geldof has fought claims that her late sister Peaches was "selfish".

Fifi took to Instagram to post a picture of Peaches and her as children following the coroners ruling earlier this week that her younger sister died of a heroin overdose. However, reports BBC News, users of the social networking site said the late television presenter and socialite was 'selfish' in the comments section by the image.

Fifi responded by saying the commenters had "no idea" what they were talking about, adding "Maybe now she'll be allowed to RIP." Fifi also thanked other commenters for their support, writing: "Thanks for your beautiful words of love and support for myself and Peaches. I appreciate it more than ever today." Fifi's account has since been made private.

The inquest into the death of Peaches Geldof on Wednesday (July 23) heard that the 25-year-old had been a heroin addict and took the heroin substitute methadone for two-and-a-half years before her death. Giving evidence, Geldof's husband, Tom Cohen of the band SCUM, said that his late wife first sought treatment for her drug problem two years ago.

The daughter of Boomtown Rats frontman Bob Geldof was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent on April 7, 2014. Police said at the time that her death was being treated as "non-suspicious but unexplained and sudden", but the results of a toxicology report showed Geldof had heroin in her system.

The inquest in Gravesend, Kent, heard that police found 6.9g of heroin in Geldof's house. It was stated that there was no indication she had planned to take her own life. Pathologist Peter Jerreat reported that puncture wounds were found on Geldof's body on her elbows, wrists and thumbs, and said the levels of heroin in her body were in a "fatal range". There was also evidence of codeine, methadone and morphine in Geldof's system. The coroner said he believed Geldof had lost her tolerance to the drug.
