The patience of Sir Bob Geldof is set to be tested once more, as I can reveal his daughter Peaches is far more into her Scientology studies than anyone realised.
You have to wonder whether Bob will finally be pushed over the edge by her latest antics researching the mysterious faith. After all, he has remained tight-lipped over her past run-ins with cops, her rumoured drug overdose and her Las Vegas marriage to rocker Max Drummey.
And whereas the presenter-cum-budding fashion designer may have craved the limelight in the past, this time she’s keen to keep things schtum as she explores the religious philosophy.
But she’s been spotted leaving a Church of Scientology centre in LA.
My perfectly-placed source tells me: “Peaches became sober a year ago now. And shortly after she started looking for fulfilment in life.
“She’d had a few crazy years learning to cope with fame and growing up and wanted to see whether she could gain anything in life from any faiths. So she went to a class and since then she’s spent a lot of time reading, attending classes in both New York and London and trying to understand Scientology a bit more.
“She’s not considering herself a Scientologist yet – but she’s enjoying learning about about a new faith.”
I’m not going to knock anybody that’s searching for fulfilment. Each to their own! She would be among some of Hollywood’s biggest stars if she did join the Scientology crew. The Cruises, John Travolta, Kirstie Alley and Juliette Lewis are all converts.
Anyway, I’ve managed to get to the bottom of this “lesbian” phase the star’s said to be going through.
But I’m reliably informed she is far from enjoying the lady-garden on a regular basis. She’s actually casually dating a guy in New York but has once again made sure things are kept on the down-low! “It’s not serious yet,” says my mole. “She’s just enjoying herself.”
And why not?
