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.
