Peaches Weds US Boyfriend in Vegas


PEACHES Geldof has married her American boyfriend in Las Vegas in a simple, low-key ceremony.

The 19-year-old daughter of Bob Geldof tied the knot with Max Drummey, singer in indie band Chester French after a whirlwind romance.

Their romance blossomed two months ago after Drummey's band played at the iTunes festival in London. Geldof (right) first met the 23-year-old Harvard anthropology graduate a year ago.

The marriage has the full support of the couple's family and friends, including her ex-boyfriend, singer Faris Badwan.

Sir Bob was told of the wedding shortly before it took place and gave the union his blessing despite not being able to walk his daughter down the aisle.

The rock star-turned-philanthropist married the late Paula Yates in Las Vegas in the 1980s, but the couple later separated.

His daughter and her new husband are thought to have been an item for little more than a month, their friendship moving to a more romantic footing following the iTunes festival in London.
