Alexa Ray Joel Being Cared For By Dad Billy Joel After Alleged Suicide Attempt
Alexa Ray Joel is being looked after by her famous father, musician Billy Joel, following an alleged overdose and hospitalization over the weekend, The New York Post has learned.
On Monday morning, police sources revealed that Alexa Ray’s hospitalization happened after she reportedly took several anti-inflammatory pills — characterized as herbal or homeopathic antihistamines — at approximately 12PM on Saturday.
The 23-year-old singer-songwriter — the only daughter of exes Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley — was rushed from her apartment in the West Village to Manhattan’s St. Vincent’s Hospital after she alerted authorities that she was struggling with depression and had just downed eight pills.
Her friends and family say she was upset over her breakup with fellow musician and on-again, off-again boyfriend Jimmy Riot.
