    Default Peaches Geldof in 'shoplifting' incident

    Peaches Geldof was stopped at a London clothes shop yesterday on suspicion of shoplifting.

    The 17-year-old daughter of Bob Geldof was questioned by security guards as she began walking out of Urban Outfitters on Oxford Street wearing a bulky coat which still had a security tag on.

    Alarms at the fashion emporium sounded and Miss Geldof was asked to come inside for questioning.

    Sources at the shop claim Miss Geldof had tried to leave without paying for the coat, and was eventually allowed to go after coming to an arrangement over payment.

    Miss Geldof disputed that version of events last night, and was adamant she had in fact paid for the coat, and that cashiers had simply forgotten to remove the alarm tag.

    Security guards at the shop questioned her for an hour and a half before she eventually left. Police were not called.

    By the time she left at 4.30pm, a hoard of paparazzi photographers had gathered outside to snap her leaving in a silver chauffeur-driven Mercedes limousine which had been summoned to collect her from the rear of the shop to avoid embarrassment.

    A source at the store said security guards thought Peaches might not have paid for the coat and was walking out wearing it anyway.

    "We could not find a record of her having paid for it and she did not appear to have a receipt. We checked her bags as well,"

    "In the end, news had got out and photographers were starting to gather outside.

    "We came to an agreement and she left through the back door at the store after about an hour and a half."

    Miss Geldof left the shop with her head bowed, carrying what appeared to be a number of bags bearing the shop's logo.

    Asked what had happened, she remained silent, though her companion replied: "We've been shopping - what does it look like?"

    When questioned last night at her south London home, Peaches disputed the shop source's version of events.

    She appeared adamant that the store's security was to blame - saying she had paid for the coat and that the security tag had mistakenly been left attached to it.

    "I paid for it obviously but they left the tag on. It's really nothing," she said.

    Her father Sir Bob was not available for comment last night, though the messages system on his mobile phone hinted that he was out of the country in Spain where the family have a holiday home.

    A spokesperson for Urban Outfitters was unavailable for comment.

    Outspoken Peaches has made headlines recently for partying apparently against her father's wishes.

    But reports prompted Sir Bob, 55, to speak out in her defence, telling friends she was "just a normal child" and "an all right kid".

    He spoke of his love and pride for Peaches, one of three daughters he fathered with Paula Yates, and went on to speak of the difficult "family story" - a reference to Paula's death from an overdose.

    And in his usual forthright manner, he added that if he ever thought she really was in any danger, he would go "f***ing ballistic" at her "like only Bob Geldof can".

    It makes me sick to hear of rich people shoplifting; and it usually always is the rich.

    hmmmm did they forget to take the tag off or did she forget to pay?? I think they may have forgot to get all the tags off if she was wearing the coat, but then I could be naive and she was trying to steal it.

    They may have forgotten to remove the security tag, but they also forgot to give her a receipt and ring the sale up? I think not. Some people who steal have other mental health issues...wonder if this could be the case with her? Some do it for the thrill or the challenge...I doubt she did it because she couldn't afford it. They should have called the cops on her just like they would for the average Joe shoplifting.

    You have it right. Not only would they have a record of the sale..but surely the person who rang up a coat would have remembered it..and it would not have taken an hour and half to figure any of that out. She should have taken a trip to jail.

    Peaches blames her cel phone for setting off the store alarms. Peaches also fails to understand the term "personal responsibility".

    Peaches: Everybody will say I'm a criminal

    Last updated at 12:08pm on 4th October 2006

    Wild teen Peaches Geldof said today that her mobile phone had set off a store alarm that caused her to be quizzed by staff at a London clothing store.
    The 17-year-old daughter of Bob Geldof has confessed to close friends that she was devastated when she was quizzed at Oxford Street's trendy Urban Outfitters shop on suspicion of stealing a bulky coat.
    Peaches has told friends that she thinks her mobile phone could have set off the security alarms. The student's pal said: "Peaches is adamant that her phone had something to do with it because she has heard that it has happened to some of her friends before.
    "That was her immediate reaction because she didn't think it could have possibly been anything else. She just thought it was one of those dodgy things that can happen with those alarms."
    Now she fears that she won't be able to shrug off being known as a thief. The friend revealed: "She is utterly devastated, she can't believe this is happening to her.
    "She has absolutely no need to steal anything from shops because, without being arrogant, she has enough money to buy modestly priced clothing.
    "Peaches is beginning to feel that she is being singled out now, it is getting ridiculous. She has had to explain everything to her dad, who is very understanding and he is on her side.
    "Bob believed Peaches when she told him that she didn't, and would never nick anything and he is fully supporting her. She is usually very good at shrugging off what is being said about her when it comes to her socialising and DJing but she feels that her reputation has now been permanently tarnished."
    Yesterday she left the shop in tears after she was accused by security guards of shoplifting. She was hauled up for questioning for 40 minutes during which she broke down, insisted it had been a misunderstanding and claimed she hadn't stolen anything.

    ^^If that shit were true we would be hearing not from her but from the company offering a full and public apology or else she would be suing the shit out of them. I call bullshit on that^^
