Peaches Geldof, daughter of Bob Geldof, dies at age 25
by  Sylvia Hui — London — The Associated Press - April 07 2014
Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25.
There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England.
Her father said in a statement Monday: “Peaches has died. We are beyond pain.”
“She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us,” he said. “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.”
It was signed by Bob, Jeanne (his partner), sisters Fifi and Pixie and half-sister Tiger Geldof.
The news came as a shock to Britain’s entertainment and fashion circles, where Peaches had been active. She was a frequent attendee at fashion shows and was photographed just last week at a show in London.
Kent police declined to name Geldof, but when asked about her death they said in a statement that officers were called to a house near Wrotham following a report of concern for a woman’s welfare Monday afternoon. They said the 25-year-old woman was pronounced dead by emergency officers, and that the death is being treated as “unexplained and sudden.”
Peaches was married twice — her first, to Max Drummey, vocalist with U.S. indie rock band Chester French — lasted only six months and ended in 2009. She leaves behind two sons and her second husband, musician Tom Cohen. The boys are 23 months and 11 months old.
“My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra, and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day. We shall love her forever,” Cohen said in a statement.
The last tweet Peaches sent on Twitter was on Sunday, when she posted a photograph of herself as a child and her mother with the caption: “Me and my mum.”
Peaches was a girl of 11 when her mother Paula Yates died of a drug overdose in 2000.
Reaction in Britain was disbelief.
“It’s very, very sad. Peaches has overcome a lot in her childhood, seemed to be getting her life together. You hear something like this and words can fail you. It’s just tragic, terrible news,” Ray Levine, Peaches’ former publicist, told Sky News.
“Having to deal with the death of your mother at such a young age would be difficult for any child, let alone someone in the public spotlight. But Peaches overcame that,” he said.
Geldof, a former Irish rock star, is best known as the organizer of the 1985 Live Aid concert for Africa and the Live 8 concerts. The anti-poverty advocate has also long argued that the global financial system is inherently unstable and unfair.

John Pinette
Born: March 23, 1964, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Died: April 5, 2014, (age 50), Sheraton Station Square Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
US comedian John Pinette found dead in Pittsburgh hotel
April 06 2014 - http://www.bbc.com
American comedian and actor John Pinette has been found dead in a hotel room in Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania.
Aged 50, he died of natural causes, the local medical examiner’s office told Associated Press.
A veteran of the international comedy circuit, he was also famous for his role in the final episode of the sitcom Seinfeld.
He had just started a tour across venues in the US and Canada, which was due to finish in June.
Pinette died at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel in Pittsburgh on Saturday afternoon, US media report.
A spokesperson for the medical examiner’s office said the entertainer had been suffering from liver and heart disease. His manager told the Hollywood Reporter he had suffered a pulmonary embolism.
The award-winning comedian was born in Boston in the state of Massachusetts in 1964 and was given his break when he was asked to tour with Frank Sinatra.
In his Seinfeld appearance, Pinette played the role of a carjacking victim mocked by the stars of the show, who in turn end up before a judge for failing to help him.
He was known for making self-deprecating jokes about his weight and his agent, Nick Nuciforo, told US media he had been working on a stand-up project when he died.
"He should be celebrated for the amazing comedian he was," Nuciforo said.
Pienette’s film credits included an appearance alongside John Travolta in The Punisher in 2004. He also performed on Broadway and was a regular guest on NBC’s long-running The Tonight Show.
