Eli Roth (38) and Peaches Geldof (21) are engaged (update: denied)


I know many of you are going to be all “What?” and “Who?” and “Them? Aren’t they crackheads?” But seriously, this is interesting. According to the British tabloids, Eli Roth and Peaches Geldof are engaged and plan to be married in January. Eli is 38 years old, and a successful director (Hostel) and actor (Inglourious Basterds) who has A-List friends like Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt. Peaches Geldof is 21 years old, and she’s a lazy little idiot who writes listicles for Nylon about why she dislikes baggy sweaters. Oh, and she was in a crazy heroin-and-Xenu sex scandal, which caused her boyfriend Eli to publicly mock her ex-lover’s mommy. Sounds like a heavenly combo, right? Oh, and it will be Peaches’ second marriage.

PEACHES GELDOF is to wed for the second time – aged 21 – after a whirlwind romance with horror movie director ELI ROTH. BOOMTOWN RAT SIR BOB’s wild child daughter, whose previous marriage to US musician MAX DRUMMEY lasted just seven months, will tie the knot on a New York rooftop in January.

Peaches and Inglourious Basterds star Eli, 38, plan a Jewish ceremony in front of 50 guests with views across Manhattan.

And last night a Hollywood pal said: “We wouldn’t be surprised if they started a family together very soon.”

The couple have only been dating since March but Peaches recently moved to Los Angeles to live with her lover. They bought a pet pig together and Sir Bob is understood to have given Eli his seal of approval.

The friend said: “They are confident this is the real deal. They want a wedding on a New York rooftop and plan to invite about 50 friends including Quentin Tarantino. Apart from the trendy venue it will be a traditional Jewish ceremony in keeping with Eli’s family faith. They are trying to keep it secret – I don’t know if Peaches’ dad knows yet.”

In April Eli wrote an open letter defending Peaches after artist Ben Mills posted saucy pictures of her on the internet following a one-night stand.

Wouldn’t it be interesting if Eli’s Judaism was the dealbreaker in this relationship? Like, all of the Xenu, heroin, Confederate flags, raunchy photos and general stupidity are just fine, but when Sir Bob Geldof finds out that his darling crackhead daughter is actually going to marry a practicing Jew, he’s going to put his foot down. Oh, and what Eli’s poor family must be feeling! Good Lord. Will Peaches convert?!?

UPDATE: Agent Bedhead just informed me that both Eli and Peaches are denying they are engaged on their Twitter accounts.

    Ugh, really? I would love to be a fly on the wall and see what goes on with these two. Ew. Scratch that. But seriously what do they have in common?

  2. bellaluna says:

    So who threw their milkshakes all over her dress?

    Yeah, these two make me uncomfortable. There’s just something about them that seems…off. He certainly seems to know (as do we) what all he’s getting himself into with this ditz.

  3. CH says:

    he looks like an idiot
    i guess they deserve each other

  4. Shay says:

    Bad tattoos. Bad fake tan. Sleazy dude with a sicko imagination.

  5. bite me says:

    the sex can not be that good

  6. ViktoryGin says:

    @ Kitten

    They both strike me as having procilivities toward the seedier aspects of life, and in this I think they are suited to each other.

    I just hope that they keep the cocain-induced orgies away from the children.

    I guess Roth will make a good first husband for Peaches. But would it kill him to have a shave?

  9. Syko says:

    It gives me the creeps just to look at them.

    I don’t see how they can have the traditional Jewish wedding unless she does convert.

  10. EllenP says:

    Oh, man–she, Rumer Willis, and Jessica Simpson have something in common: an inability to close their mouths when being photographed. Tres chic!

  11. LolaBella says:

    I really used to like Eli. Now I just want to channel Cher in Moonstruck – slap him in the face a few times and tell him to ‘Snap out of it!’ Sigh.

  12. Michelle78 says:

    Gross couple…neither are attractive. Congrats, I suppose.

  14. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Why would Geldolf be upset about Roth being a Jew?

  15. canadianchick says:

    Maybe the bride will wear white-she’s a virgin, right? *snort*

  16. Mentok the Mind Taker says:

    @chris —

    He’ll be her second husband. She got married when she was an embryo or something.

    I agree with those who find it “off” — something does seem a bit odd, but who knows? He shows up on TMZ Live every once in a while. He seems very nice, and very Jewish. I’m thinking she’s already converted (or is in the process of) or he wouldn’t go through with it.

    I give them three years, tops. She’ll get bored.

  17. Kimberly says:

    Oh hell no , F**K Eli Roth for this one … if it’s true .

    He really is disturbed in the head .

  18. Girl says:

    Is that his hairline you can see thinning in that pic with the blue shirt?

    It seems like it would take longer than a few months to convert, especially for an idiot of PG’s caliber.

  19. xxodettexx says:

    @ViktoryGin, right? i get the feeling these two are perfect for each other

    and i personally think they should avoid have ANY kids whatsoever… i cant ever see them being the kind that restrain themselves for the good of their offspring

  20. Kate says:

    Those are gonna be some ugly ass crack-head kids!

  21. snowball says:

    Something’s very weird with this couple. She’s so..strange for him. Unicorns, rainbows and diamonds must fly out of her vagina after he bones her or something.

    I don’t know if you could dream up and odder couple. Well, maybe Steven Spielberg and Kim Kardashian.

  22. Kitten says:

    @Viktorygin-you are totally on the money.
    They frighten me 🙁

  23. Liana says:

    I like her dress in the first photo. She annoys me, he’s what I consider douche-like, but the dress I like.

  24. Amy says:

    Did anybody else think it was Miley Cyrus at first in the header pic?

  25. Dawn says:

    Nothing like a wedding on a rooftop in NYC in January

  26. BRIANNAA says:

    I thought Geldof was a Jewish name. Why is he wasting his youth and hers by being together? She looks like a ditz. His horror proclivity is more fun when shared..she looks really straight to me.

    Eli, go get someone closer to your age and mindset…..!
