|Bob Geldof||(31 August 1986 - May 1996) (divorced) 3 children|
She met ex-husband Bob Geldof and married him 10 years later. 
She was brought up in North Wales in a show-business family by her mother, the former showgirl, actress and writer of erotic novels Heller Thornton (Heller Toren) and the television star Jess Yates, known as "the Bishop", who presented the ITV religious programme "Stars On Sunday". Her father was 16 years older than his wife and their marriage was unconventional. In an unsettled childhood Paula, from the age of eight, lived mostly with her mother, including spells in Malta and Majorca.
Her ex-husband Bob Geldof was given temporary care of Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence, her orphaned daughter, after she was made a ward of court. [18 September 2000]

On 8 November 2000, an inquest decided that death was due to "non-dependent abuse of heroin" - ie that she was not a habitual, addictive user.
She died on 17 September 2000, the 10th birthday of her daughter Pixie Geldof.
