Alexa Ray Joel is the beautiful daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley. Last night she was rushed to St. Vincent’s after apparently taking a handful of sleeping pills in an alleged suicide attempt.

A friend called 911 from Alexa’s West Village apartment, saying she had taken numerous pills and was “an emotionally disturbed person” who was “having trouble breathing.”

Billy Joel said today his daughter “is going to be fine.” He has avoided going to the hospital to prevent a media frenzy, but is said to be in constant phone communication. Alexa’s mother Christie came to the hospital and Alexa has since been released.

According to two law enforcement officials, the overdose appeared to be intentional. However, a person close to Alexa Ray said she took a drug called Traumeel, a homeopathic antihistamine.

Alexa Ray is 23 years old, and is said to be under serious emotional strain. She is the only daughter from Joel and Brinkley’s nine-year marriage, and was severely affected by their divorce. Her father also married 22-year-old Katie Lee when Alexa was 18 years old, which is said to have upset her as well.

More recently a source said she has been an emotional wreck since breaking up with her boyfriend a few years ago, former band mate Jimmy Riot. The source said:

“She has battled depression. She had a rough breakup with a boyfriend . . . It was her first love.”

We wish Alexa Ray Joel all the best and hope she gets the help she needs to maintain a healthy life. Check out pictures along with video below and feel free to leave your comments as well.
