Billy Joel’s 23-year-old daughter Alexa Ray was rushed to St. Vincent’s Hospital on Saturday after attempting suicide by ingesting a bunch of sleeping pills. The New York Post says
Medics were called to Alexa Ray Joel’s Bethune St. apartment in the West Village at approximately 12:21 p.m. [on Saturday]. A female caller told a 911 operator that Joel had taken several pills and wanted to die.
Cops are treating it as an attempted suicide.
“Alexa is stable. Her doctors are assessing her needs and that’s all we can say at this moment,” said Alexa’s and Billy’s personal publicist.
Joel was conscious at St. Vincent’s Hospital, and is expected to survive.
Well, this certainly was a long time coming. Just look at her. Her mom’s Christie freakin’ Brinkley, and she looks like something you’d get when you cross the Elephant Man with a pug with hydrocephalus. I bet she could even make blind kids cry.
