Peaches Geldof has been caught up in a second shoplifting controversy.

The troubled teen's representatives have been forced to release a statement after she was accused of leaving an east London shop with an item that she had not paid for. When confronted by the owner, Peaches insisted that there had been a simple misunderstanding and handed the item back immediately.

Geldof's lawyer said: "The correct facts are these; our client was shopping in an east London retailer trying on clothes with friends. She bought a number of articles of clothing from the retailer. One article she tried on and discarded was picked up by a friend in the mistaken belief that it belonged to our client.

"Some time later, when our client and her companions were at another shop, the friend who had picked up the item was approached by the shop owner - [from] whose stock it came - and she explained that she had taken the item in the belief that it belonged to our client.

"When our client explained that it did not belong to her, her companion apologised for her mistake, and the item was returned to its owner."

Peaches was previously accused of shoplifting just last month when she left London's Victim boutique with a dress she had not paid for. As with the current incident, she apologised for her behaviour and said there had been a mix-up.

Geldof was also embroiled in fresh controversy this week after it was claimed that she had been caught purchasing drugs on camera.
