Peaches Geldof home after Vegas wedding; husband nowhere to be seen

Peaches Geldof, daughter of rocker/humanitarian Bob Geldof, made some waves last week when she married her boyfriend of four weeks in Las Vegas. The 19-year-old train wreck, who has been in the news for a drug overdose and other wild behavior, wed American musician Max Drummey of the band Chester French in a last-minute ceremony at the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas. Sources say she called her father to get his blessing two hours before the impromptu wedding. Now, Peaches is back home in the U.K. – without her husband.

Peaches Geldof was beginning married life in London today separated from the husband she has known for just four weeks.

The 19-year-old daughter of Bob Geldof flew back alone from her shock ‘quickie’ wedding in a Las Vegas chapel to Max Drummey, a little-known American musician.

The 15-minute ceremony last week had only one witness and Peaches is reported to have told her father only two hours beforehand.

There is mounting speculation the wedding was a stunt to promote Drummey’s band Chester French, who are about to release an album and are currently touring America.

The newlyweds released a statement through Peaches’ agent last night confirming they had wed and that their marriage had the full support of family and friends. But it was laced with references to Drummey’s music deals, prompting the suggestion the marriage was being used to enhance his career.

The statement said: ‘Peaches and Max Drummey are delighted to announce their marriage. The couple tied the knot in a simple low-key ceremony in Las Vegas last week.

‘Peaches first met Max two years ago. Max’s band, Chester French, played at the ITV iTunes festival, where Peaches was co-host.

The acclaimed Boston band were signed by Pharrell Williams to his label Star Trak. Their marriage has the support of family and friends’

Peaches has reportedly been a fan of Drummey and his band for a couple of years. But it is understood they began a romance after meeting last month at the iTunes Festival.

It sure does sound like a publicity stunt- or at the very least, a cry for attention, like Britney Spears’ quickie marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander after her breakup with Justin Timberlake. Between the drug use and this, I’m sure her dad’s blood pressure is through the roof right about now. But Peaches is 19 and legally an adult- she will be the one to deal with the consequences here. I predict this girl is heading for a major disaster.

Picture note by Celebitchy: Peaches Geldof is shown outside Maddox Nightclub on 7/3/08. I’m pretty sure that’s the guy she married because he looks like the same one on D-Listed’s article about her wedding. That pap is pretty rude to be grabbing her arm like that. Credit: ISO IMAGES/

    It’s hard to imagine a fame whore who turns my stomach more than Avril Lavigne, Naomi Campbell and Denise Richards. That person could well be Peaches Geldof. Just the sight of her gerbil-like overbite and self-loving grin makes my flesh creep. She has no talent and isn’t even moderately photogenic like the Heidi Montag style of tabloid fodder. She’s far too wrapped up in cashing in on her famous name to have learned ANYTHING about the perils of celebrity from her mother’s terrible end. Let alone a shred of humility.

  2. kate says:

    i think she’s kind of cute … *waits for onslaught*

  3. geronimo says:

    Whatever, I think she’ll probably come good in the end. Fifi and Pixie are much more grounded and media-savvy than Peaches. Wouldn’t call her a fame-whore exactly, just someone who’s been handed way too many opportunites on a plate, most of them way beyond her abilities.

  4. Syko says:

    Gosh, the poor kid really looks like her dad, doesn’t she?

    The thing that struck me most about all this is that they released a statement through Peaches’ agent. Peaches has an agent? What for?

  5. xiaoecho says:

    Is a Vegas wedding legal for a Brit?

  6. javagirl1 says:

    Somebody named their kid Peaches? Seriously? Or is that just a nickname?

  7. geronimo says:

    No nickname, Geldof sisters as follows:


  8. bros says:

    odd family names aside, I absolutely love that scarf she is wearing.

  9. Mairead says:

    Fifi looks the spit of Bob, even more than Peaches. (they justified Fifi’s name in that she’s named after Bob’s favourite auntie – as for the rest of them… Although to be fair on Bob, Tiger’s name wasn’t completely up to him.
    (off-topic but I saw a picture of Tiger recently – an absolute mini-me of Michael Hutchence!)

    Actually I think she looks a teeny bit like her maternal grandfather Hughie Green – he had these big prominent eyes too.

  10. Kaiser says:

    Ah, she’s just a kid. I was screwed up when I was 19, too.

    But she’s just a chip off the old block, isn’t she? Her mother & Geldof got together when Paula was still a teenager, right?

  11. theblackdahlia says:

    nice brows. she is icky….

  12. Blackalicious says:

    According to many accounts I have read she pulls the ‘do you know who i am” thing a lot (answer: yes, the offspring of people who have talent…)
    and she is homely as all sin. No saving this gargoyle even with good lighting/makeup. She has terrible bone structure. Maybe she left her chin in Vegas?

  13. Kristin says:

    Poor Peaches, I always thought she was the prettiest of the Geldof girls…..I just love her mom & wish she were still with us. What do you expect of someone with her upbringing?

  14. Snowblood says:

    I don’t understand all the “ugly” comments – I think she’s really cute. Seriously! She’s got an interesting, unusual face, but in an appealing, cute way. I don’t understand why people find her ugly, that trips me out.

  15. Kylie says:

    Hay – lay off the nasty comments.
    Go to Perez if you need to comment on her features like that. Tacky!!!!

  16. cara says:

    I wish for her the best. It can’t be easy growing up without a mother. A mother dying from an overdose regardless of wealth and stature is a handicap. We shouldn’t knock her espec. for things she cannot change, such as her face…..behavoir, well that’s fair play. ( although she’s yet to do anything – and yes, I know about the supposed OD, but who didn’t OD before 24, come on….dancing w/ the devil is what kids do, sadly, but remember we were all invincible too) *** please ignore my spellings ***

  17. Amy says:

    What does annoy me is the fact that she is only scoring “rock star” boyfriends and fame b/c of who she is.

    If she were just some random chick who approached a popular British musician, he wouldn’t even give her the time of day.

  18. Nan says:

    Blackie, you are funny. It’s true, though. She reminds me of one of those ugly girls in high school who acted out w/drugs & stupid relationships just to get attention. She struggles for the attention, any attention that is naturally afforded to little beauties. Some people cannot cope w/the fact that they weren’t born attractive. I just hope she doesn’t grow up into one of those ugly women who make life hell for any attractive women they have to work with or be in the family. You all know that type, no? They are usually the ones ripping AJ to shreds.

  19. tp vero says:

    Pity the rich and famous… they are always so screwed up. What pisses us off is they have means to un screw themselves and rarely do. Like youth, opportunity is wasted on the young.

  20. odd family names aside, I absolutely love that scarf she is wearing.
