Eli Roth Defends Peaches Geldof In Nude, Heroin Pic Scandal
Don’t mess with Eli’s Girl.
Peaches Geldof’s boyfriend, director Eli Roth, has blasted one of Geldof’s former bedfellows for spilling the beans on a heroin-fuelled romp with her – in a open letter to the young man’s mom!
Roth posted the message to Ben Bluett-Mills’ mother Meredith on his MySpace page on Saturday. In the 1,200-word letter, Roth lashes out at Ben, 23, for the “damage” he has caused the 21-year-old hellraising socialite after pictures showing her with Kiss-And-Tell Ben were posted online along with claims of a one-night stand.
The photos — which made the rounds on the blogospher nearly two weeks ago — show a glazed-eyed Peaches cavorting topless and supposedly high on heroin after hooking up with Bluett-Mills last November.
Peaches lost her lucrative modeling contract with lingerie manufacturer Ultimo after the images emerged. Roth – who has been dating the daughter of former rock star Sir Bob Geldof for two months – holds Ben responsible for all the humiliation that his girlfriend has had to face…Apparently Peaches’ decision to get high and take off her clothes has nothing to do with her troubles.
“Your son took a bright, intelligent, incredibly creative young writer and damaged her ability to work until people forget about this or dismiss it as nonsense,” Roth fumed. “Not only has your son’s horrible lies (sic) painted Peaches as ‘dangerous’ to many who would potentially hire her, but companies like Ultimo Underwear are using this ‘scandal’ as a reason to fire Peaches by saying she is not a role model for young girls.”
He added, “These stories also send a dangerous message to anyone who has ever made a mistake, that no matter how much you change, someone can make up a sick story about you and everyone will revert to the worst image of your past.”
Eli says Peaches has been clean for over a year.
“She has worked hard to grow up and overcome her troubled past. Your son… used the most painful events from someone’s past to make himself famous, and it worked.”
