Billy Joel’s Daughter Alexa Ray Joel Attempts Suicide, Is In Stable Condition
We’re sad to report this morning that Alexa Ray Joel, daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley, was rushed to the hospital yesterday afternoon in NYC after a suicide attempt.
The singer’s roomate called 911 shortly before 12:30 p.m. to report an “emotionally disturbed person” was “having trouble breathing” at her West Village apartment. This was after ingesting a large number of pills and telling her roomate she wanted to die.
Her publicist, Claire Mercuri, said in a statement, “Her doctors are assessing her needs” and, according to TMZ, Alexa is now in stable condition.
Our thoughts are with Alexa and family in this difficult time.
