According to Mick Jagger’s ex-wife, model Jerry Hall, Bob Geldof has asked his longterm girlfriend of eighteen years, Jeanne Marine, to marry him. The enduring Texan model made the announcement at the Wellcome Book Prize ceremony in London.
She told the Daily Mail: “Bob has proposed. She is over the moon… Bob and Jeanne have been through hell, but they are determined something positive will come out of it”.The model, also recognised for her forays into acting, added “After all the sadness, we need something to focus on which will bring joy and light”.
The news has come in the same week that the inquest into the death of Peaches Geldof opens. Media reports by organizations such as The Times newspaper contest that the inquest will hear that the 25-year-old died from a heroin overdose.
