Complainant Name:
Ms Peaches Geldof

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Star


Ms Peaches Geldof complained through Swan Turton solicitors of London that an article was inaccurate in suggesting that she was planning to marry her boyfriend in Ibiza and that her father was angry about the possibility.


The matter was resolved when the newspaper published the following statement:

The May 5 Goss column headed Im gonna wed Fred in Ibiza stated that Bob Geldof was angry about reports that his daughter Peaches was planning to marry boyfriend Fred MacPherson in Ibiza.

We now accept that Peaches has no such plans and in consequence her father has no cause to be angry. We apologise for any embarrassment and upset our article may have caused.

Report: 75
