    Is there anyone Courtney hasn't helped, except herself & Frances Bean?

    The only thing that shocks me about this is that it took Courtney this long to come out with it.

    Peaches Geldof died of heroin overdose, inquest rules

    The inquiry has heard heroin is "likely" to have played a role in her death.
    Continue reading the main storyRelated Stories



    Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose, a coroner has ruled.
    The TV presenter had been a heroin addict and took the substitute drug methadone for two-and-a-half years before her death, the inquest heard.
    A police search found 6.9g of heroin in her house but there was no indication she had planned to take her own life.
    Her husband, musician Tom Cohen, told the hearing in Gravesend the 25-year-old had started using the drug again in February this year.
    He added he had witnessed her flushing drugs she had hidden in their home down the toilet.
    'Fatal range'
    Pathologist Peter Jerreat said puncture wounds were found on Geldof's body along her wrists and thumbs.
    Evidence of codeine, methadone and morphine were also found in her blood.
    He said the levels of heroin in her body were in a "fatal range".
    The funeral took place last month at the same church where Geldof's mother's funeral was held in 2000
    It is thought Geldof had given up heroin at the end of last November, and had returned to using the drug in February.
    The coroner said he believed she had lost the tolerance she had previously built up, therefore the purity of the heroin found in her house had a fatal impact.
    Mr Cohen, whom she married in 2012, found his wife slumped on the bed at their home in Wrotham in Kent after becoming concerned when she failed to answer the phone.
    He had been away for the weekend with the elder of their two sons, Astala, leaving Geldof at home with their 11-month old son, Phaedra.
    She was pronounced dead at the scene.
    At the time, police described the death as "sudden and unexplained".
    After the toxicology report was issued in May, the police launched a criminal inquiry "into the supply of drugs" in connection with her death.
    Geldof's mother, Paula Yates, died of a heroin overdose at the age of 41.

    I get that an overdose is self inflicted but I still find this situation so sad. I wonder how her husband is doing with their two wee ones, breaks my heart to think of her wee buttons with no mum at such a young age.

    I find it sad as well but I really don't think I would have left either child with someone I knew had started using again. That seems crazy.

    6.9g is heck of a lot to have around for an occasional dabble. I read somewhere that it was something like 60% pure as opposed to the usual 20% street muck.

    Apparently the syringe was hidden in a box of sweets next to her bed, smart move when you've got a little one toddling around. I don't give a shiny shit about addiction being an illness and all that crap, bottom line is she was nowt but an irresponsible junkie - what kind of self proclaimed earth mother puts their kid at risk like that?!

    My first thought too--he knew she was using and he left her alone with the baby all weekend??

    the hubby is most definitely lying about not knowing she was using again (or he's an addict, too).


    "Pathologist Peter Jerreat said the levels of heroin in Geldof's body were in a "fatal range"; while evidence of codeine, methadone and morphine were also found in her blood."

    she must've been high as a kite. the whole story is sad.

    And she made a living out of being an 'earth mother,' getting papped and taking non-stop selfies of her family. I read that she died with TEN times the amount of heroin in her body compared to her mother.

    It is sad, but she put her children at risk for her habit. They are lucky something didn't happen to those babies. God forbid that they might have accidentally found her stash in the candy box.

    Or wandered into the road or filled a bath or something. What was she thinking?
