Billy Joel's Daughter Alexa Ray Joel Attempts Suicide, Is In Stable Condition-photo

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.

    I wish Alexa the best. Thousands of girls each year take their lives. Suicide is a disease that can be prevented. It is an illness that deserves serious attention and discussion. Look for the signs among the girls you know - depression, talking about ending it all (even as a joke), refusal to see a psychiatrist, withdrawal from friends and family, etc. See anything out of the ordinary, be serious about it and address it. You can save a life. As for Christie Brinkley, I am sure she will get her daughter the medical and psychiatric attention she needs. She has ALWAYS been a protective mother to her children. Nothing more needs to be said.
