It was announced earlier this week that Peaches Geldof’s death last month was due to a heroin overdose. While her drug addiction was unknown for even her closest friends and family, Peaches made secret visits to a rehab facility during the last weeks of her life. According to reports, she was spotted at least six times at the facility in Maidstone, Kent, weeks before her death.
“We were on first name terms but I called her ‘P’. I last saw her a couple of weeks ago. She was fine, but furtive,” a source who met her at the clinic told The Sun. “She used to wear a hoodie to disguise herself. The first time I saw her I thought I recognised her and we just chatted about a few things.”
Peaches didn’t want anybody to know about her problems because she was worried about the impact it would have on her family life, so she had to keep her rehab visits a secret from her husband Thomas Cohen. “She said she didn’t want her family or her husband to know about the drugs and it was top secret. She used to arrive on her own. She was on a prescription and had to turn up weekly,” the source explains.
Peaches suffered from addiction in her past, and had to be revived after a drugs overdose in 2008. On Thursday, it was announced that the toxicology tests taken in connection with the autopsy showed that she passed away after a heroine overdose.
