While Peaches Geldof appeared to have beaten her drug demons, her continuing fascination with the occult, and particularly a mysterious religious cult called OTO, worried her family.

Just three weeks ago Peaches, 25, tweeted a picture of bookshelves groaning with works by Aleister Crowley, the British founder of the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO).

She also posted a photograph of Crowley’s book, Magick – In Theory And Practice, praising him as a ‘beautiful writer and thinker’.

Her interest in OTO ran alongside previous fascinations with the Scientology cult, and Judaism, the religion of her husband, Thomas Cohen.

Crowley, who styled himself as ‘the Great Beast, 666’ and was dubbed ‘the wickedest man in the world’, revelled in sadomasochistic sex rituals with men and women, and the use of hard drugs including opium, cocaine, heroin and mescalin.

Peaches, who had ‘OTO’ tattooed in a heart on her right arm, is said to have become interested in the occultist’s religious theory during her short-lived marriage to musician Max Drummey when she was 19. At the same time, she also pursued an interest in Scientology after talking to actress Katie Holmes, then married to Scientologist Tom Cruise.

She was said to have visited Scientology centres in Los Angeles and New York, before losing interest in the cult. More recently, Peaches, whose husband, Thomas Cohen is Jewish, developed an interest in Judaism.

Peaches Geldof: From feisty young girl to loving mother-of-two

While the marriage to Drummey failed, Peaches’ interest in Crowley’s teachings persisted, and she has previously urged her online followers to read his ‘super interesting’ books, an interest that worried her family.

Last year her father’s girlfriend, actress Jeanne Marine, said of Peaches’ interest in the cult: ‘You don’t know if it’s something that will pass or if it’s longer than that. The thing is, young people, they change their minds a lot.’

She said neither she nor Bob Geldof knew anything about the cult, but said the fact that Peaches had tattooed its name onto her skin indicated that her interest in it might be more than a passing fad.

OTO was said to have been brought to Britain from Europe in the early 20th century by Crowley, an infamous occultist and drug addict.

Crowley, who was said to have filed his teeth into fangs, was rumoured to drink blood and stage drug-fuelled orgies, and was widely criticised for being ‘in revolt against the moral and religious values of his time’.

He founded the religion of Thelema, which was based around the idea of free will, and reorganised the OTO’s teachings around the same principles.

One of his books, The Diary Of A Drug Fiend, was among those pictured on Peaches’ bookshelf.

Crowley’s followers, however, say he was a highly influential thinker and writer in the field of western esotericism and counter-culture, and in 2002 the BBC ranked him 73rd in their list of the greatest Britons of all time.

‘His work within the OTO was nothing short [of] miraculous and he was a beautiful writer and thinker too, as well as magical practitioner’

On 16 March, Peaches posted a picture of Crowley’s Magick book alongside the slogan ‘Do what thou wilt’, a central tenet of the philosophical law of Thelema, upon which the thinkings of the OTO were based.

When one follower asked her if Crowley, who died in 1947, was a satanist, Peaches replied saying: ‘No, it has nothing to do with Christian ideas like satan or Jesus at all.’

And when others made references to his less appealing traits, she leapt to his defence, saying: ‘All the stuff about him being a Nazi sympathiser and a racist was lies made up by the press who hated him.

‘He would also just say controversial stuff purely to subvert people’s perceptions of him in the media. If you read any of his work, he makes this abundantly clear.

‘His work within the OTO was nothing short [of] miraculous and he was a beautiful writer and thinker too, as well as magical practitioner.’

Other celebrities linked to OTO include the rapper Jay-Z, who has been seen wearing a t-shirt bearing the slogan ‘Do what thou wilt’, and Led Zeppelin guitarist, Jimmy Page.

Last year the head of OTO in Britain, John Bonner, 63, told the Mail that its followers here numbered hundreds rather than thousands.

He said: ‘We are used to being misunderstood. Many stories about Crowley, like people saying he filed his teeth down into fangs, are nonsense.

‘You could call us a sex cult in a way, because we recognise, accept and adore the whole process which goes towards making tangible the previously intangible.’

Devotees of OTO say it can take years of study to understand the religion, something Mr Bonner, who lives in Sussex, acknowledged.

He said: ‘You’re not supposed to just jump straight in to it. It takes time and study, but our rituals are not for public consumption. You need to join us and go through the initiation process before you can begin to understand.

‘But according to our beliefs we can’t turn anyone away. So if you are over 18, are passably sane and are free to attend initiations, then you have an undeniable right of membership.’

    By naming mothers the victims can be identified, which is illegal

    PUBLISHED: 15:45, 28 November 2013 | UPDATED: 01:39, 29 November http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2515054/Peaches-Geldof-tweets-names-mothers-helped-Ian-Watkins-abuse-babies.html

    Peaches Geldof is facing a criminal investigation for tweeting names that may identify victims of paedophile rock star Ian Watkins.

    A court order was made to grant lifelong anonymity to two children whose mothers allowed Watkins to abuse them.

    But yesterday Miss Geldof, daughter of Boomtown Rats singer Bob, broke the order by naming their mothers to her 161,000 followers on Twitter.

    The Attorney General said a possible criminal offence had been committed. South Wales Police are investigating.

    Only 24 hours previously, Miss Geldof had been lecturing the Press about invading people’s privacy.

    Naming the mothers could lead to the identification of the children, which is why the court called them only Woman A and Woman B. Lostprophets singer Watkins was branded a ‘determined and committed paedophile’ after he pleaded guilty on Tuesday to a string of sex offences, including the attempted rape of a baby.

    The 36-year-old, from Pontypridd, South Wales, plotted the abuse with the two mothers in text and internet messages.

    Yesterday morning Miss Geldof, 24, ranted to her followers: ‘The papers MUST name “woman A & B” who offered up their babies to this monster.’

    When no newspaper took up her suggestion, she decided to publish the banned details herself, after reportedly reading them on a US-based website.

    She tweeted: ‘The names are…’ and wrote both mothers’ full names, before adding: ‘what sick, horrible women’.

    Miss Geldof was warned by fellow Twitter users that her actions were in breach of a court order, to which she replied: ‘How???’ It is understood the message remained online for four hours before it was deleted. Twitter users branded her an ‘idiot’.

    Last night a spokesman for Attorney General Dominic Grieve said: ‘We understand that the names of the co-defendants in the Ian Watkins case were posted online but have now been removed.

    ‘As has been previously reported, the co-defendants were the mothers of the victims.

    ‘Victims of sexual offences have automatic lifetime anonymity and the publication of names or information which can lead to their being identified is a criminal offence. This is a police matter.’

    Detective Chief Inspector Peter Doyle, of South Wales Police, said: ‘We are currently in consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service regarding the matter and will take action if appropriate.’

    Only a day earlier, Miss Geldof was taking the moral high ground over the Press, accusing newspapers of being ‘intrusive’ for reporting the court proceedings concerning Nigella Lawson’s alleged drug-taking.

    She tweeted: ‘It’s at times like this that I wish that the press would not intrude into celebrities’ private lives on this degree. Did we learn nothing from the phone hacking scandal?’

    She apparently failed to appreciate that the court case involving Miss Lawson is open to the public and is being widely reported on all media outlets.

    The judge even took the unusual step of encouraging the media to apply for all reporting restrictions to be lifted – and then granting that request.

    By contrast, the judge in the Watkins case made certain there were restrictions in place on what could be reported, which were automatically adhered to by the professional journalists covering the court.

    Miss Geldof, who has two young sons with rocker husband Thomas Cohen, works as a journalist, writing columns for The Daily Telegraph and Elle Girl and articles for The Guardian.

    It is not known whether she has ever had any training in media law.

    Under the Contempt of Court Act 1981, the maximum sentence for the offence is two years in prison.

    Miss Geldof’s agent said there was no comment to make.

    Peaches Geldof faces police investigation after naming moms who allegedly offered babies to Lostprophets pedophile rocker Ian Watkins

    The daughter of Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof reportedly tweeted out the names of two crazed groupies who allegedly agreed to let singer Ian Watkins abuse their own children. Watkins has pleaded guilty to 13 counts of child sexual assault—including two counts of attempting to rape a baby.

    Peaches Geldof is in hot water after tweeting out the names of two mothers who allegedly offered up their babies to accused rapist and former Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins.

    The 24-year-old Geldof reportedly released the names to her 160,000 Twitter followers after reading about them on a U.S. website. Naming the women may eventually identify the sexual assault victims, which the U.K.’s Attorney General’s Office said is a crime.

    “Victims of sexual offences have automatic lifetime anonymity and the publication of names or information which can lead to their being identified is a criminal offense. This is a police matter,” a spokeswoman for the Attorney General’s office told the BBC.

    The accused mothers, whom the courts have named ‘Woman A’ and ‘Woman B’, are co-defendants with 36-year-old singer Ian Watkins. All three face a total of 32 charges.

    The musician maintains that he didn’t successfully rape an 11-month-old, but admitted to two counts of attempted rape.

    He is also accused of feeling up a 1-year-old, possessing and creating child porn, and plotting to rape a baby. He even allegedly urged a groupie to abuse her own child on Skype.

    The 24-year-old Geldof has apparently deleted the tweet revealing the two mother’s names, the BBC reports. But she still thinks the woman should be identified.

    -his own sick, twisted pleasure. The papers MUST name “woman A & B” who offered up their own babies to this monster in the hopes of being-

    — Peaches Geldof (@peaches_g) November 28, 2013

    -close to their (majorly talentless) musical hero without a backward glance, as they are equal in their monstrosity. It sickens me to see-

    — Peaches Geldof (@peaches_g) November 28, 2013

    -just how far the cult of celebrity and super fandom has come when grown women are passing their own kids round. I hate the world sometimes.

    “The papers MUST name ‘woman A & B’ who offered up their own babies to this monster in the hopes of being close to their (majorly talentless) musical hero without a backward glance, as they are equal in their monstrosity,” Geldof later tweeted. “It sickens me to see just how far the cult of celebrity and super fandom has come when grown women are passing their own kids round. I hate the world sometimes.”

    Geldof is the daughter of Boomtown Rats frontman Bob Geldof and the late TV personality Paula Yates.

    The attorney general and the South Wales police have been trying to discourage people from sharing information about the victims online.

    We understand that the names of the co-defendants in the Ian Watkins case have been posted online. (1/2)

    — Attorney General (@AGO_UK) November 28, 2013

    Victims of sex offences have lifetime anonymity. Publication of info which could identify them is a criminal offence & a police matter.

    — Attorney General (@AGO_UK) November 28, 2013

    “Clearly, there is strong public feeling about this case and many people are using social media forums to talk about the issues involved,” South Wales detective Peter Doyle told The Mirror. “Our primary objective as an organization remains the safeguarding of vulnerable people and children. Victims of sexual abuse have a right to anonymity in order to protect their future welfare and we urge those discussing the issues raised online to be careful about using information that identifies victims in cases like this.”

    The Lostprophets rock band has sold more than 3.5 million records since they started making music in 1997. The band announced its split in October after allegations of Watkins’ sexual abuse hit the news.

    Watkins and his two co-defendants will be sentenced on Dec. 18.

    Peaches Geldof Found Dead at Age 25: “Sudden and Unexplained”, a Year After Announcing Initiation to the O.T.O

    Peaches Geldof

    Model and TV personality Peaches Geldof was found dead at her home in Kent, England on April 7th. Geldof was the daughter of musician Bob Geldof and Paula Yates (who died of a drug overdose in 2000). Geldof’s death was deemed “sudden and unexplained” and is currently under investigation. Authorities have however already stated that there was no evidence of foul play.

    There is however one important element that needs to be considered while investigating her fate : She died about a year after announcing the her fans her initiation into the occult secret society Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O). On March 11th 2013, Peaches tweeted:

    “#93 #Thelema #o.t.o for all my fellow Thelemites on instagram!”

    Thelema is the name of the philosophy taught in the O.T.O. It was written by occultist Aleister Crowley.


    Peaches’ O.T.O. tattoo


    Peaches urged her social media followers to learn about the O.T.O, which caused a surge of interest for the secret society in mass media (well, tabloid news).

    The O.T.O was mentioned countless times on Vigilant Citizen as it is one of the most powerful secret societies in existence today. Based on Aleister Crowley’s Thelema, the O.T.O revolves around the concept of sex magick to attain spiritual illumination. The O.T.O considers itself to be the true heir of the Knight Templars and the Bavarian Illuminati. Crowley’s texts also contained several thinly veiled allusions to human ritual sacrifice to attain magical potency. Was Peaches sacrificed?

    Before joining the O.T.O, Peaches was involved in Scientology to then turn to Judaism, the religion of her husband Thomas Cohen.

    While information concerning her death is still scarce, Peaches life had all of the bearings of an industry victim: She was born into an unstable, show-business family; She got involved in the entertainment industry early in her life; She developed relations with industry insiders; She dabbled with the most powerful spiritual currents of the occult elite; Finally, she unfortunately lost her life in “mysterious” circumstances, under the spell of an elite secret society.

    We might be seeing, once again, the dark side of the entertainment world working its “magick” in plain sight.

    I think whoever murdered Peaches would like to smear her name and divert attention away to her OTO involvement. So if a paedophile ring with nothing to do with the OTO ended up killing Peaches then they will harp on about OTO and the herd will fall for it.
