[ # ] Bob Geldof defends Peaches
August 28th, 2006 under Bob Geldof

As another unflattering portrait of Peaches Geldof emerged, she was defended by an unlikely source – her father.Sir Bob has been a stern critic in the past of his 17-year-old daughter’s penchant for partying.But he insisted to friends that 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’.The 55-year-old former pop star, now most famous as the organiser of Live Aid and Live 8, reacted to pictures showing Peaches having what looked like a paper cone inserted into her nostril by a friend.They were apparently taken in the early hours at an after-gig party thrown by a bunch of her aspiring rock star friends in South-West London.Geldof told friends: "As a dad, I just get extraordinarily annoyed at the accusations that have been levelled at her recently."She is a 17-year-old girl. She is allowed to go to no more parties really than other kids go to. She goes to a rock festival. She does a DJ thing on the odd occasion for 80 quid a night. I mean, give her a break."The pictures of her (with a paper cone to her nose) are a great load of s***. It’s just too much. She is only 17. I’m p***ed off about all the stuff that seems to circulate around her."Sir Bob then said he did not think Peaches was a fair target for criticism following her mother’s tragic death, despite the fact that she appeared to court publicity by trying to break into television and having her own newspaper column.He said: "I know our family story. I know she writes stuff and does TV stuff. But f***, she’s a 17-yearold kid who did really well in her AS-levels and now she has gone on to do A-levels. That’s the reality of quite a normal child. That’s where I’m at with this situation."He then warned that he would put her straight in no uncertain terms if she ever got into serious trouble. If she went off the track I would go f***ing ballistic, you know. She’s a pain in the a*** sometimes like all kids but she’s all right. She’s an all right kid and she does all right for herself given the circumstances."If I honestly thought she was doing anything worrying that I should be concerned about, I would go f***ing berserk."You know what I can be like. But that is not what is going on with her. She’s doing just fine. I really want to give her a break."
