Bob Geldof's anger at late daughter Peaches

Bob Geldof was "extremely angry" with daughter Peaches after her death.

The Boomtown Rats star admits he was left upset at his daughter when she tragically passed away in April 2014 after a heroin overdose at the age of just 25.

He is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "At the time, with Peaches I mean, immediately afterwards, I was extremely angry with her and probably that was the energy you discerned, it wasn't a positive thing at all.

"I watch against myself getting drippy or sentimental about either of them [Peaches and her mother Paula Yates], although I loved them to the core of my soul and still do. I'm not incontinent with my blubbing but when the need arises, I do. I think male crying is somehow different, it seems to come and last a bit and then it goes."

Meanwhile, Peaches' former spouse Tom Cohen has been channeling his heartbreak into his music, as he pays tribute to the late model and television presenter through his songs.

Some of his lyrics read: "You couldn't make it through. Time to say goodbye. Holding onto each other and sing to one another. Everyone knows the house feels so cold. Just to say goodbye."

Whilst another part added: "Sleeping alone, it's hard to go on in our country home, where we belong. Sing to me one last time. Your sun is still shining. Hold my hand as the sea becomes a storm."
