Complainant Name:
Ms Peaches Geldof

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Heat

Complaint:

Ms Peaches Geldof complained through Swan Turton solicitors that the magazine had published inaccurate claims that she had got married in order to obtain a US visa, having been offered a job at a US magazine. In fact, there was nothing inappropriate about her reasons for marriage and she has not applied for a US visa.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the magazine published the following apology:

“In our 9 September edition we reported a friend of Peaches Geldof had told heat that she married Max Drummey having been denied a visa to enter the US because of drug allegations. We are now informed that Peaches did not marry Max to obtain a US visa, she did not apply for a US visa and she did not get married so as to enter the States. We apologise to Peaches for any embarrassment caused”.

Report: 77
