Georgia Keeling, a friend of the late Peaches Geldof, has been a tower of strength for Thomas Cohen and his sons.
The Irish Sun reports that heartbroken Tom has stuck up a close friendship with artist Georgia Keeling.
The punk singer has been seen taking his young son Astala for walks with Georgia, and she is a regular visitor to his parents’ home in East London.
Tom (24) is raising Astala (2) and Phaedra (23 months) in the wake of his wife Peaches’ tragic death on April 7th 2014.
A source told the paper that Georgia (25) is helping Tom get his life back on track. The paper adds that the former lead singer of band S.C.U.M began dating again last November.
“It is great to see him smiling again,” the insider divulged. “Obviously he’ll never get over Peaches’ death and he is determined to ensure she is always talked about so the boys know about their mum.
“But he is a young man and he needs to get on with his life in the best way he can,” the source added.
After Peaches’ fatal overdosed, Tom and the boys left their €1.3m family home in Kent.
Tom has now moved back in with his parents, Susan and Keith, who have been a pillar of support.
“Georgia visits him there, they’ve been friends for a long time and she gets on really well with his mum and dad so she’s always welcome.”
It is almost one year to the day where Peaches was found dead at the family home.
An inquest heard that the 25-year-old journalist had been looking after her son Phaedra, who had been left alone for 17 hours as a massive dose of heroin and methadone killed his mother.
According to a spokesperson at Kent Police Station, an investigation into who sold her the drugs remains live.
