Thomas Cohen, husband of the late Peaches Geldof abandons home. Cohen was a former vocalist of S.C.U.M, a South East London based post-punk/art rock group and Geldof, was an English journalist, television presenter and model, who died at her home in April 7, 2014 of an apparent heroin overdose and he just too traumatized to return to their marital home. It has been reported that he has stayed away from their Wrotham, Kent home for fifteen weeks after he was the one to discover his wife’s body slumped on a bed from a heroin overdose in April.
The couple share two children together, two year old Astala and fifteen month old Phaedra, and they are are now staying with his parents in Eltham, south London. A neighbour told the Daily Mirror newspaper:
”Thomas hasn’t been back to the house for a long time. Whenever he needs something, he gets his mum to pick it up.
”He is haunted by what has happened and is constantly reminded of Peaches and the happy times they shared, as well as the moment he found her.
”He has told friends he wants to sell it when he has the strength. But the house has remained empty for the majority of the time since she passed away.”
Earlier this week, an inquest into Peaches’ death was told the 25-year-old mother-of-two had begun taking high purity heroin again in February after two-and-a-half years using substitute drug methadone.
Drugs paraphernalia, including knotted tights, a capped syringe with brown residue in the main chamber and burnt spoons, were found in the home.
