"Peaches has died. We are beyond pain," her father Bob Geldof said in a statement. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?

Other celebs took to Twitter to send their condolences and share their loss.

Geldof was friends with another famous daughter: Daisy Lowe, daughter of Gavin Rossdale. Lowe simply tweeted a broken heart after hearing of the Geldof's death.
