Peaches Geldof's grieving big sister Fifi has hit back at critics.

Earlier this week, Peaches' inquest confirmed that she died of a heroin overdose and also revealed she was secretly battling a heroin addiction in recent months.

Her husband Thomas Cohen also claimed that she hid the Class A drug in the attic of their family home, where they raised their two children Astala (two) and Phaedra (11 months) in Kent.

But Fifi (31) yesterday hit back on Twitter, saying: "Yet another who has bought into the bull****."

She followed with another separate post on Instagram, saying: "Don't keep calm and f*** this. F*** that. F*** you. F*** off', the Sun reported this morning."

Peaches has been accused of being irresponsible due to her drug addiction, and it's also believed her youngest son could have been alone with his mother's body for as much as 17 hours.

In places around the four-bedroom house, police officers later found nearly 80 syringes – some used – and spoons that had been used in the preparation of drugs.

Her mother Paula Yates had died of a heroin overdose in 2000 and the inquest in Gravesend heard yesterday that Peaches had posted a picture of the two of them together online at 6.17pm – with the comment "me and my mum". This was one hour and 40 minutes before her last known conversation.

She was discovered wearing a grey dress, slumped on a bed in a spare room of their family home on April 7 by her husband, after she failed to answer the phone.

Underneath her body was an Apple iPhone, a packet of cigarettes and a pair of black tights with a knot in them, and under the bed there was a burnt dessert spoon with residues of heroin.
