Peaches Geldof opened up about parallels to her mother in last interview

Tragic Peaches Geldof revealed she felt strong parallels between herself and her mother Paula Yates in the last interview before her death. Bob Geldof’s daughter was found dead at her home in Kent, England last Monday (07Apr14), but the cause of her death is still unknown and it could be weeks until toxicology results are released. Her mother died in 2000 from a heroin overdose.
In her final interview, which was intended for Britain’s Aga Living Magazine but was published in The Sunday Times after her death, Geldof admitted her childhood was traumatic, but she finally felt like she could understand her mother.
She said, “I’m not sure I’ve yet fully made peace with my childhood, but with my mum I have come to terms with everything. She had a really difficult time. There are so many parallels between us. I feel her living through me all the time because we are just so similar. Now I can understand everything.”
She also talked about motherhood, house renovations and an upcoming Australian TV project.
The interview was published as it emerged that her relatives are planning to scatter her ashes in the gardens of Davington Priory in Kent, where her childhood home stood and where Yates’ ashes were also scattered.
