Tiger Lily Hutchence, 19, makes a splash as she joins half-sisters Pixie and Fifi on the beach following Bob Geldof’s wedding
She is rarely in the public eye.
But Tiger Lily Hutchence – the daughter of Michael Hutchence and Paula Yates – stepped out with her half sisters, Pixie and Fifi, in the South of France on Sunday afternoon.
The brunette, 19, was seen frolicking in the waves just 24 hours after the wedding of her step-father, Bob Geldof, to his partner Jeanne Marine.

Wearing a pink and black bikini as she enjoyed the warm weather, she was the spitting image of her former INXS frontman father.
Looking happy and healthy, she was clearly having a good time with her family.
Naturally going make-up free on the sands, she wore her brown hair in a messy beach-bum style as she surfed and paddled, cutting a carefree figure.
Pulling along a bodyboard and a paddle, she certainly had a spring in her step.
And, although the water seemed to appear colder than she’d hoped, she persisted and visibly enjoyed her time in the blue.
Later she joined Pixie on the surfboard and enjoyed being powered across the surface of the water, while laughing and joking.
The sighting comes less than a day after Bob tied the knot again.
The event was thought to be the official ceremony following reports in April that the couple had tied the knot in the resort of Rayol-Canadel-sur-Mer after 19 years together, meeting in 1996.
It’s now being claimed that Bob and Jeanne had simply been signing paperwork in the spring ahead of this month’s big event.
A source told the Sunday Mirror: ‘In France a formal wedding usually has two parts, and this weekend was the main event.’
It was reported in April that Bob had married, just weeks after marking the first anniversary of his daughter Peaches’ death, who passed away aged just 25.
Meanwhile, Tiger – full name Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily – was just over a year old when her father died in a Sydney hotel room in 1997. Adding to the tragedy, she was only four-years-old when her mother suffered a fatal drugs overdose, three years later.
Sunsequently, Sir Bob Geldof, 60, was awarded custody of Tiger Lily after a bitter battle with Hutchence’s mother Patricia Glassop.
In an interview before she died in 2010 aged 84, Mrs Glassop claimed Sir Bob had treated her cruelly and that she ‘barely knew’ her granddaughter.
However, there was sign of any upset as Tiger Lily enjoyed the company of her half-siblings.
Pixie, wearing a black one-piece swimsuit, scraped her hair up into a messy bun and certainly seemed happy as she splashed around.
She was also joined by long-term boyfriend George Barrett and, together, they put on quite a romantic display.
In fact, never too busy for a selfie, they even indulged in some self-portrait photography while in the water.
Also taking part in the family festivities was Fifi, who stepped out in a pink and grey swimsuit.
She was joined by the man she’s engaged to – ‘sand artist’ Andrew Robertson, who also had a brief foray into politics.
Earlier this year, the busker 33, published a manifesto for his so-called Beach Party, whose policies included legalising drugs, plus providing free food, travel and education ‘at any age, regardless of sex, age, race, religion or species’.
The sisters along with their brother-in-law Thomas Cohen and Andrew later enjoyed a quiet family chat, smiling widely as the continued to soak up the sun.
