Peaches Geldof scandal: naked photos hit the web, as socialite denies heroin accusations

Peaches Geldof has been left red faced, after a set of photos showing her topless have hit the web, that the photographer claims were taken during a heroin-fuelled romp.

The pics emerged online on Friday, posted on by a man calling himself Ben, who claims he had sex with the socialite and that they injected heroin together. He posted a detailed account of their encounter, claiming they met last year, took drugs together, and then bizarrely ended up in a Scientology detox centre.

He wrote: 'At this point in my life I was very into all drugs, as was she. She told me she had a bit of heroin she brought with her from the UK and asked me if I was game. I was so the hunt began.

'We drove all around LA looking for the supplies we needed. We drove to various pharmacies looking for needles and cotton. We get them and begin the drive home... I was high as a kite and we start to watch a movie. Things get hot and heavy and before I know it we're naked'.

Peaches' lawyers have now spoken out, denying that she took the drug: 'The allegations that our client was carrying and injecting heroin are also denied, our client having consumed alcohol with the other individual leading to the 'highs' described and portrayed in the photographs.

'The evident unreliability of the source emerges from the also fictitious description of their trip to a scientology center,' the release continues. 'Had you undertaken any checking or research before making this posting you would have learned that nobody who is not a member of that organisation is permitted into such buildings.'

We wonder what Sir Bob thinks of this latest episode... ?
