Billy Joel's Daughter Rushed To The Hospital In Reported SUICIDE Attempt!

| Filed under: Sad Sad


We sure hope they're wrong!

The New York Post is reporting that Billy Joel's daughter with Christie Brinkley, 23-year-old musician Alexa Ray Joel, was taken to the emergency room in NYC on Saturday after a failed suicide attempt.

The paper says Alexa Ray ingested a large number of sleeping pills and was rushed to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Manhattan.

A female caller told a 911 operator that Joel had taken several pills and wanted to die, sources said.

"Alexa is stable. Her doctors are assessing her needs and that's all we can say at this moment," said Claire Mercuri, Alexa's and Billy's personal publicist.

Joel was conscious at St. Vincent’s Hospital, and is expected to survive, said other sources.


Suicide is NOT the answer.

If you are having suicidal thoughts, please speak to someone about them.

You matter!

    Do you mean, Billy Joel?

    PEREZ, It's BILLY JOEL not BILLY JOE! You're going to piss off the Green Day fans, you gay.

  6. 6

    billy joe?? dont you mean billy joel asshole

  7. 7

    Billy Joe or Billy Joel???

  8. 8

    I wonder how that makes you feel you fat fuck since you are one of her biggest critics.

  9. 9

    You mean Billie JoeL? So sad, she's such a pretty girl…

  10. 10

    I sure hope you're not pretending to be concerned, considering how much you mercilessly HARASSED her.

  11. 11

    Oh, Perez & Co.

    I don't even know where to begin with you and your two-faced lack of self-awareness.

    Best wishes to the Joel/Brinkley families during a difficult time.

  12. 12

    Fucking enroll in a spelling Bee ! Billy JOEL.

  13. 13

    Adult child of an alcoholic….and a self absorbed narcissistic bathing suit model mom.
    My heart goes out to this girl.
    Hope she has a good therapist that has the guts to tell her that its not her that needs the therapy its her parents.
    Oh and all the step moms and dads

  14. 14

    Billy Joel?? wow… thats sad…

  15. 15

    I think that's interesting you're changing your attitude now; when previously you picked her apart and called her ugly. You are just a jealous little bitch I hope karma comes to bite you in the ass some day and you die a lonely bitter piece of shit because that's what you are. You are so full of yourself.

  16. 16

    Perez you stupid fuck….I just read where you called her a slut (google it), etc. How dare you, you fucking pig! You need to be stopped from tearing apart people you don't find to be pretty enough to suit your tasteless ass! Alexa, Rumor…all of them that you tear apart need to come after you and pick your bones clean till there is nothing left of you! You are the scum of the earth and God will make sure you rot in hell though they may not want your kind down there either!

    I spit on you you filty fuck!

    You've done nothing but denigrate and insult this young woman. Hopefully this item isn't true, but if it is and she tried to take her own life, you need to own you part in that and examine the effect your behavior has on others.

    Re: monnie – ooo monnie good choice of words. Not to mention a mother who keeps getting cheated on by ugly men!

  20. 20

    Poor girl. Just goes to show once again that money doesn't buy happiness. Maybe her Dad can stop marrying girls nearly her age now and pay her the attention she needs from him.

  21. 21

    She is so pretty!

  22. Cass says – reply to this


    Wait a minute, now you've amended the original item to add an anti-suicide message, saying "You matter!" If that's true, then why do you spend so much time saying or implying just the opposite? If you truly believe that everyone matters, start acting like it and treat the people you write about with at least a modicum of respect instead of trying to score points with 'gotchas' and nasty comments. Snarky is funny, snide is not.

  23. 23

    Why read Perez's website if you hate everything he says?

  24. 24

    She "matters" Perez? Weren't you the one calling her ugly just a few months ago and saying she didn't have her mother's look and that she wasn't pretty? You disgust me! You are so fake and phony. STFU!

  25. 25

    Perez brother, you used to make fun of the girl. You get millions of hits no wonder the girl feels bad…you are part of the blame…Just saying.

  26. 26

    I usually am a fan of your entertainment news updates….But I feel you should take a moment and look at yourself…You have made horrible comments about this poor girl…How you can even sound concerned when it may possibly be people like you making fun of her, thats caused her attempted suicide…This is disturbing…I wish the best to her and her family during this tough time:)

    Don't you think some things are a little TOO private to share? Like this?
    Regardless, best wishes to her and her family. There's always something to live for.

  29. 29

    Does anyone else remember how horrible Perez was to Alexa? Karma will be a bitch, Perez!!

  30. 30

    U used to talk about Alexa like she was the ugliest girl on earth. Do u remember that? U should man-up and apologize stat! Do a big posting, u monster. She almost died.

    God Bless You Alexa. God created u and u r well blessed. U r very very beautiful. Be blessed my sweet.

  31. 31

    What? The product of two self absorbed, career obsessed people have a child with problems? shocking. She is a musician? what an amazing thing…Poor angel girl…she is looking for something and hasn't found it…possibly attention from her parents…How many times has her mother been married since she divorced B.Joel? and they were all creeps…but then again her mother is a weird one too. Her father seems better but is always gone…She needs to move where there is more sun and have a mother and father who wake the fuck up and check in on their daughter…maybe a little help in her musical career Daddy Warbucks…

  32. 32

    Wow, Perez.

    I'm pretty sure I could dip into your archives and find some extremely hurtful posts about this girl. Why are you acting so concerned? You were happy to completely rip her to shreds not so long ago.

  33. 33

    "I can’t help but be a little bummed out because the incredibly cruel, bullying Perez Hilton (this tabloid guy who calls himself the “queen of media”) just put up a horrible picture of me on his site and basically in so many words called me ugly…"

    Alexa Ray Joel on 2007

    Mario likes to think himself 'apart' from the poison he spews because Perez is 'just a character'. Who controls this 'character' exactly? You honestly believe that pathetic excuse sets your actions apart from any consequences?


  34. 34

    Boo hoo, poor little rich girl needs some attention. Go out and buy yourself a new purse, sweetie…..you'll feel better.

  35. 35

    Re: MackAdocious – That was my first reaction! This is someone that he was happy to tear apart piece by piece for no good reason not so long ago!

  36. 36

    Oh this beautiful girl! There is ALWAYS help!

  37. 37


  38. 38

    PEREZ, maybe one of these days you will wake up and realize you are a pathetic fame whoring leach. You and your nasty comments about Alexa could quite possibly have contributed to her suicide attemps. WAKE UP ! It is not cool to make fun of people. I hope you realize that you are quickly loosing fans as they are realizing what a douche you are. You are a small, small cowardly shell of a man.

  39. 39

    Perez, your so fucking two-faced it's disgusting!

  40. 40

    she is soo pretty.
    *If you are having suicidal thoughts, please speak to someone about them.*
    true! my friend killed herself two years ago not even a note was left. she was giving me, other friends and her family the cold shoulder. now im all ears for whoever wants to talk. and i have stopped judging people, sometimes you hurt people by judging and you dont know it. bless her heart.

  41. 41

    Fuck off, Perez. You bash this girl for being ugly constantly and suddenly you are on HER side? You are the worst type of person, how dare you.

  42. 42

    Why did I expect anything better from you assholes. He's showing concern and letting troubles persons that if they need help please get it. Your all fucking idiots without a clue as to what the real world is about. Get over yourselves.

  43. 43

    Re: lacey1 – lol

  44. 44

    Spittin image of her dad. Wonder if having a really pretty Mom is what this is about. (Sam Woods????)

  45. 45

    Perez….Thank you for saying "suicide is not the answer"….You reach MILLIONS!.. How about posting a suicide hotline number? You will save lives!

  46. 46


  47. 47

    Re: somebodysmart – she is beautiful!

  48. 48

    I hate that anyone would feel this way. Hopefully, she will get the help she needs.

  49. 49

    I am sure your concerned perez! You have made fun of this girl plenty of times. You should lay off of celebrity kids. Suicide is the answer for some, but not for her.

    Re: Anonymousdude

    Shut the fuck up you dumb cun*t. People are going to know about it anyway.

  52. 52

    You should leave this family be, let them have their privacy.

  53. 53

    this is your fault. good luck trying to fall asleep tonight.

  54. 54

    That's so weird that she would try to kill herself! It's almost like some awful media outlet asshole cut her down a whole bunch for no reason and called her ugly or something! Weird…She's probably SOO touched that you're concerned. Or rather, the people who write the posts on this site for you.

  55. 55

    She is really beautiful. Get well!

  56. 56

    maybe you'll stop making fun of her now? seriously.

  57. 57

    You have made horrible comments about this poor girl…How you can even sound concerned when it may possibly be people like you making fun of her, thats caused her attempted suicide…This is disturbing…I wish the best to her and her family during this tough time:)

  58. 58

    Re: phantom – Who the fuck are you, asshole? In my professional opinion, it IS cool to make fun of people. You are a stupid idiot ha ha. So fuck off, sperm-gargler…. Rock on, Perez!

    Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
    Hopefully she will get the help she needs.
    Too bad it has to play out in the press and blogosphere.

  60. 60

    YOU ARE PARTLY TO BLAME!!!! Don't ever forget that. You cannot justify your behavior. You suck. You cannot write. You are not funny. You are not smart. BURN IN HELL. YOU ARE EVIL.

  61. 61

    Nobody "matters" until they die or they try to take their own life. It's not how you treat people who are important to you when they're gone, it's how you treat them when they're here.

  62. 62

    Can't say I blame her, if I looked like that, I'd kill myself to.

    /better luck next time.

  63. 63

    Jeez, people realx, why so mad?
    everyone can misspell a word, sorry for her hopefully she will get all the help she need to get trough her pain.

  64. 64

    Alexa, You are an extraordinarily beautiful and talented person. Do not let the opinion of ANYONE change your opinion about yourself. A basic truth is that EVERYONE, and I mean EVERYONE, who strives to be a good person deserves to feel GOOD about themselves. Many times, others try to steal our shine and our happiness, but it is important to realize their motivations, find strength within yourself and refuse to let anyone steal your happy. They don't have that right.

  65. 65

    Re: tom951 – Suicide is the answer for some? Wow. Your very uneducated aren't you?

  66. 66

    You'd be suicidal too if your mother was one of the greatest beauties of her time and you came out looking like Billy Joel. He's a talented dude, yes, but he passed all his ugly genes on to his daughter!!!

  67. 67

    I hope this story isnt true. She seems like such a nice person. She looks beautiful in this picture.

  68. 68

    You made fun of her for years calling her ugly and saying that she'll never be as pretty as her mom or talented as her dad. Perez, sometimes your hypocrisy is down right offensive and if a celeb behaved this way you'd be all over them for it.

  69. 69

    I think it's so interesting how Perez is saying "you matter" when he is the first one to point out people's flaws and make them feel like shit. Perez is the biggest bully of them all. Think about how he talks shit about Rumor Willis and her looks how does he think that makes her feel. Thank God she is strong enough to take his shit but just think what if the way he talks about HER affected her. I am glad ms. Joel is fine and I hope she deals with whatever is going on with her and I pray she doesn't have a "perez type" person in her ear telling her how worthless she is.

    Why do you people read this blog if you hate Perez so much?

    girl,any guy doesn't deserve you dies for him! time treats love trouble!

  72. kaylo says – reply to this


    How sad, but knowning you, it was most likely NOT suicide and your sources are wrong AGAIN!

  73. 73

    you all talk shit about perez but you have profiles on his site, and you visit his site to the extent of posting comments?

  74. 74

    These scanks should know one thing if you want to kill yourself, hang yourself it works 100% of the time. Stupid weak fucking scank.

  75. 75

    I can't say I'm surprised. Kid's got two losers for parents.

  76. 76

    This is so sad! I can't imagine what would make this pretty young thing think about suicide. I am glad she is O.K.

  77. 77

    Now you care Perez? You are such a fucking PHONEY. How could you ever say this girl is ugly…she looks beautiful to me. I hope she gets some help.

  78. 78

    There's nothing wrong with how she looks. AT ALL. Everyone compares her to her mother, who is still at her age one of the world's most beautiful women. So she doesn't look like her mother? SO WHAT? She's still beautiful and unique looking in her own way.

  79. 79

    What? Is her dad the lead singer of GREEN DAY? Fucking learn to spell and edit - and frankly…? Just learn to write in general and stop being such a bully. You mock that beautiful girl's looks as often as possible — now she feels suicidal? Just because you have NO feelings doesn't mean your vicious commentary doesn't hurt other people.

  80. 80

    PEREZ YOU PIECE OF TRASH, feeling suicidal and even more HAVING COMMITTED IT is not something to gossip about. This should have been kept private between her and her family.
    Second, I agree she should have talked to someone, but let's admit it: It's not easy, especially when both of your parents cares only about themselves and money. It's hard to open up about something as serious as suicidal thoughts when you just simply don't trust anyone anymore. And it doesn't help when people make fun of her publicly..so go blame yourself for this and don't act like you care about her!

  81. 81

    Get well child—

  82. 82

    Hope she's OK. She looks more like Brittany Murphy than her mom.
    And to the idiot above–suicide is NEVER the answer.

  83. 83

    i feel like he's taking this serious because he has probs tried to commit suicide before or knows someone close to him who has. i mean if he was an intense druggie he would take the celebs rehab shit seriously, you know? …just sayin.

  84. 84

    From Alexa herself:

    Alexa Ray Joel was thrust into the spotlight Sunday when she responded to a picture of her posted on the exponentially overrated, unfunny site, PerezHilton.com.

    Venting via her MySpace page, Alexa Ray called Perez Hilton "quite dangerous," and was sickened to see commenters "picking apart the appearance" of her "8 year-old sister."

    Yesterday, Alexa Ray clarified her opinion for Us Weekly:

    "To paraphrase my father, he always said: 'don't take crap from anybody.' I've had a lot of people advise me in this industry to get a thicker skin and turn a blind eye to the vicious trends of the tabloid publications and celebrity gossip sites, and their dangerous effects on young women, and society in general. But if I were to follow their advice, and do nothing, I feel I would only be perpetuating something which I believe to be fundamentally wrong. I stand by my original posting."

    Interesting guidance. To paraphrase Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler, MySpace is the place to vent all of your frustrations about marriage, love, life, etc.

    Alexa, who Perez called "no supermodel," came to the defense of herself and also her half-sister, Brinkley's daughter with her latest estranged ex, Peter Cook, who was criticized by commenters on the a-hole's posting.

  85. 85

    Is this the same girl you constantly rag on?

    One of these days you are going to have blood on your hands, Mario. There's a special place in Hell for you.

  86. 86

    I'm glad she's just fine now, and I hope she could continue her life..and this time have a happy life.

  87. 87

    Re: Dr. Cornelia J. Dogbarker PhD rescinded – how old are you? Either way you are a piece of trash! Burn in hell ass hole.

  88. 88

    i love her her music is awesome people picked on her cause she she looks like her dad and they call her names i hope she gets better

  89. 89

    I don't understand the people commenting this. If you hate Perez so much, why are you wasting your fucking time to read his blogs and comment them? Truth is, you are all jealous bitches. Seriously, don't like him. GET FUCKING LIVES AND STOP READING HIS BLOGS. It's a simple as that. I love Perez Hilton. At least he's fucking honest, and tells you the truth straight up. He's blunt, and thats how people should be.

    Now, to respond to this post. It's sad what happened. I hope she gets better soon. And, to people who think she's ugly. She isn't.

  90. 90

    Prayers for such a beautiful young lady. I hope she heals quickly.

    I wish all the best to her and family during this time

  93. 93

    You know you've reached the bottom when you're about to commit suicide. I honestly hope she's doing okay and gets better. Maybe this should teach you a lesson Mario about how you treat people in the future.

  95. 95


  96. 96

    Oh my god that's so sad and unlike you Perez i really mean it.
    I wonder why she tried to commit suicide?. Hopefully she gets the help she needs i really hope people leave her alone about this even though its not possible its gonna be really hard on her all the rude things people are gonna say.

  97. 97

    So what if she's extremely unattractive, with those orangutan eyes…. So what if she's a little chunky around the middle? These problems can all be easily solved with thousands and thousands of dollars of plastic surgery, and by barfing after every meal. Oh and yeah, I'm sure a rich bitch like her stays glued to her computer screen looking for all the comments people make about her ha ha. She's on an airplane, she's getting her nails done, she's at a fancy party, she's shopping on 5th Ave, she's on a fucking yacht: Bitch could not give a fuck about you or your pathetic sympathy or your miserable comments. She's only about money.

  98. 98

    I always read that you say "Violence is not the answer."

    Now I read you say "Suicide is not the answer."

    Will somebody give me the questions to all these answers! Damn it, it's not true and it's not false, then what the hell is the effing question?

  99. 99

    Re: zooby – It's BILLIE JOE for Green Day, FYI. You people can't spell.

  100. 100

    This is your fault Perez. You attacked her mercilessly. Actions have consequences. I hope your site fails and you end up destitute.
