Peaches Geldof’s Heartbroken Husband Sang Tribute At Her Funeral

The service was described as "like a gig".

Peaches Geldof’s husband Thomas Cohen sang a song in a touching tribute at her funeral.

It’s believed that the SCUM rocker sang Leonard Cohen’s Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye at a ceremony for the model and journalist, who died suddenly at their home aged just 25. According to The Mirror, Jools Holland and Queen drummer Roger Taylor also performed at the service, with an attendee describing the funeral as “like a gig. It was so lovely, a real celebration of her life”.

“Tom was brave to sing as he was ­tremendously upset,” they added.

Record label boss McGee has also spoken of the emotional scenes witnessed during the final farewell to Peaches.

“It was very heavy when I saw Bob help carry his daughter down through the chapel. It was incredibly tragic but I think he handled it as well as any man could,” he said.

“The bravest thing I think I’ve ever seen him do is give the eulogy to his daughter who has died.”

The cause of the 25-year-old death is still unknown, as doctors await the result of toxicology tests.
