Singer Alexa Ray Joel is reportedly staying with father Billy Joel while recovering from an alleged overdose. Alexa Ray Joel was rushed to the hospital Saturday night after reportedly suffering difficulty breathing.
23-year-old Joel was released from St. Vincent’s Hospital and is now reportedly staying with her father while she recovers, according to her publicist. Billy Joel released a statement over the weekend saying his daughter was “going to be fine.” Alexa Ray Joel is the daughter of singer Billy Joel and ex-wife Christie Brinkley.
Whether the pill overdose was accidental or a suicide attempt still remains unclear. However, Joel allegedly told a 911 operator she “Took pills. Want to die,” according to the New York Post. A message from the 911 dispatcher to EMS responders reportedly stated: “Female caller. Took eight pills. Wants to die. Now feels funny. Wants to live.”
According to a report by People, Joel may have been upset over an argument with a boyfriend. Whatever the cause, we hope she gets better soon and find the help she needs.
