Complainant Name:
Peaches and Fifi Geldof

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Closer

Complaint:

Peaches and Fifi Geldof complained to the Press Complaints Commission through Swan Turton solicitors that an article contained a number of inaccuracies.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated publication of the following apology under the heading "Peaches Geldof apology":

On 27 October we published a photograph with our article about Peaches Geldof and her sisters. The photograph was said to be of Fifi Geldof but was in fact of Fiona Brown, her best friend. The article contained some allegations which we now accept to be incorrect. The Geldof sisters are neither growing apart nor not speaking to each other. Fifi Geldof was only stopped by police not arrested for possession of cannabis. Peaches is not "tired" or "unhappy" and is working consistently, and is not jealous of either Pixie's career or looks. We apologise to the Geldof sisters for these inaccuracies.
