Tiger Lily Hutchence was just 16 months old when her father, INXS frontman Michael Hutchence, passed away in November 1997.
And her heartbreak wasn't over just yet ...
Three years after Hutchence was found dead in a hotel room, her mother, Paula Yates, lost her life to an accidental drug overdose.
At just four years old, Tiger Lily was an orphan – and one of the world's most famous orphans at that.
Although Michael's mother and sister fought to have Tiger Lily live with them in Australia, the young girl was controversially adopted by her mother's ex-husband and father of her three half-sisters – Fifi, Peaches and Pixie – Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof.
But in the years since, the only daughter of the late singer has largely managed to avoid the spotlight.
Until now ...
Following in her famous father's footsteps, Tiger Lily - whose real name is Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof - has released her first album.
Performing under the stage name Heavenly, the brunette rocker is the spitting image of her dad.
The songstress now lives in Fremantle, Perth with her boyfriend, musician Nick Allbrook, whom she's been dating for more than three years.
Nick, a former bassist in hit band Tame Impala, has shared a handful of Instagram photos and a video of Tiger Lily, calling her his "dream gal" in one such post.
Sadly, Tiger Lily suffered more loss when her half-sister, Peaches Geldof, died of an overdose in April 2014.
Tiger Lily graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London in July 2019.
