Geldof To Keep Tiger

British star SIR BOB GELDOF is to be allowed to adopt PAULA YATES's daughter TIGER LILY.

The Australian family of Tiger's father, late INXS frontman MICHAEL HUTCHENCE, have ended their battle for the four-year-old, allowing her to remain with her half-sisters in England.

KELL HUTCHENCE, 67-year-old grandfather of the tragedy-struck tot, declared that she was better off staying in England. Kell says, "It is the most sensible decision we have made in a long time." (RD/WNSMI/JM)
