Alexa Ray Joel Hospitalized After Drug Overdose

by at . Comments

Billy Joel's 23-year-old daughter with Christie Brinkley, Alexa Ray Joel, is in stable condition after being transported to a New York hospital just a few hours ago.

According to sources close to the situation, authorities arrived to Alexa's Manhattan apartment after a 911 call alerted them to Alexa having trouble breathing.

A female caller told a dispatcher she had "taken pills" and "wanted to die." Paramedics found her having difficulty breathing, but got her medical attention.

A source with knowledge of the situation says: “There was an indication the call came from Alexa’s roommate, but it could've been Alexa Ray Joel herself."

The singer is "conscious" and expected to recover.

Investigators at the NYPD’s Sixth Precient say a drug overdose or even an attempted suicide have not been ruled out, but there is nothing confirmed as of yet.

Rumors suggest she may have been struggling with her parents' respective divorces over the past year and a half as well as other personal problems.

Here's wishing Alexa a speedy recovery.


shes beauitful. Maybe if she became a blonde shed be even better.


Ugg boots are especially manufactured keeping in mind more of a casual look,so it definitely matters if you are to carry a casual look or for a party.When it comes to clothes


I feel terrible for her that she was so depressed that she would have to try to take her own life...I am sure it's been very hard growing up in her beautiful mother's shadow..those shoes would be very hard to fill, and especially when she is the spitting image of her father...I hope she gets better and gets the help she needs. ( I am sorry, I don't think her talent lies in music/singing/songwriting, but I am sure she will find her purpose in life..she is very young, and has so much life ahead of her...)


i love love love alexa ray joel and know what a bright, beautiful woman she is. i hope she's well and i wish all of these nosy, entitled news sources would let her be. she's been through a lot and is an incredibly sincere and strong singer-SONGWRITER. she deserves her privacy.
