Peaches Geldof has married her American boyfriend in Las Vegas, the couple's spokesman has announced.

Peaches, 19, tied the knot with Max Drummey in a low-key ceremony last week.

The daughter of Bob Geldof first met the 23-year-old Harvard anthropology graduate over a year ago but their relationship only developed after Drummey's band, Chester French, played at the iTunes festival in London two months ago.

The marriage is said to have the full support of the couple's family and friends, including Peaches' ex-boyfriend Faris Badwan, the spokesman said.

A statement claimed the couple did not want any publicity over their marriage but had decided to "set out the facts'" after growing media speculation.
