Peaches: 'Geldof Is Scary'

Subscribe to Bob Geldof alerts

Crusading rocker Bob Geldof has been branded an "angry Irishman" by his own daughter, who insists he is over-protective and volatile when it comes to her media exposure.

Peaches Geldof claims her father worries so much he has banned her from gossip magazine features and censors everything she writes.

And he won't allow her to have an agent.

Peaches says, "If I get offers from (British magazines) NOW or Heat he won't let me do it. If I write something he always wants to read it and if he thinks it's too controversial he won't let me say it. He doesn't want me to get exploited.

"He's an angry Irishman. When he gets angry, it can be quite scary."

sorry, peaches, i'm with da on this one! sounds like a valuable loving parent here. it will take time for the world and media to see you as you and not you the daughter of this international statesman and activist, rockstar, author and organizer. when you have put in your time and established yourself sufficiently so readers and others notice YOU and not a way to get thru you to your dad, then i'm sure he'll be behind you all the way. hone your talent, and listen to him. and i'll be watching and waiting your debut. God bless you richly. sammi fredenburg
