Peaches Geldof

Peaches Geldof today accepted what I'm sure was a handsome payout from Express Newspapers. The money was paid for damages caused to Bob's daughter by the Daily Star headline
"Peaches: spend the night with me for £5k"

The article claimed that the fruity TV presenter had accepted cash for turning up to parties and other social events. If this is true and the 5k figure wasn't just plucked out of the air then I think this is a little harsh. Not only does she get paid to go to parties, but she then gets a lump some plus legal fees for an accurate and fair headline? Careful Peaches, those palms will be getting sore soon.

That said, according to Geldof's solicitor Jonathan Coad, Express Newspapers agreed that the headline implied Ms Geldof "provided services of a personal sexual nature for the payment of a fee". Though they did print the apology and retraction on the graveyard page so their feelings of guilt can't have been too overwhelming.
