Dev Hynes pays tribute to late friend Peaches Geldof

Blood Orange musician writes blog on his memories of journalist and socialite

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.
