Complainant Name:
Ms Peaches Geldof

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Star

Complaint:

Ms Peaches Geldof complained through Swan Turton solicitors of London that an article claiming she had verbally abused Coleen McLoughlin was inaccurate.

Resolution:

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

“In an article in our 16 May edition we reported that Peaches Geldof launched a verbal attack on Coleen McLoughlin, and she claimed that, like other Footballers’ Wives, she was cheap and chivvy and fake. We now accept that Peaches Geldof did not say those words about Coleen McLoughlin and apologise to her for any embarrassment and upset that our article may have caused.”

Report: 75
