Geldof's 'torture porn' beau rides to the rescue

After some pretty damaging allegations of heroin induced high jinks, that led to Peaches Geldof losing her Ultimo bra contract, you might think that she would choose her defenders wisely. Someone like Alan Titchmarsh perhaps, to counteract the lurid stories that have made Peaches a PR nightmare. Well Geldof's saviour is not Alan (perhaps that was never going to be a likely pairing), but her film director boyfriend of two months, Eli Roth.

Roth, most famous for his horror franchise 'Hostel' that led to the creation of the 'torture porn' genre, has leapt to his girlfriend's defence, after an ex revealed pictures of Geldof, allegedly high on opium and with not much in the way of clothes. The director My Space page wrote the open letter to the mother of the ex, '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.'

'Not only has your son’s ­horrible lies 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.'

Now Eli, we know you haven't known Peaches for long, but if there's one thing our Geldof has never been, it's a role model...
