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.

Thankfully!

Suicide is NOT the answer.

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

You matter!

    Re: Dr. Cornelia J. Dogbarker PhD rescinded – Oh my god you are horrible.



  2. 102

    I hate you Perez!!! I am so glad Joy and Whoopi shut your fatass up on the view when they were talking about Demi Moore's CHILD and the pics you posted of her!!! Why didn't you post that on your site??? You are partly to blame for this young girl's emotional problems!!! Take a minute or two and read all the comments people have posted about you!!! Everything that goes up must come down….YOU SUCK MORE THAN EVER!!! FAT FUCK



  3. 103

    Re: Itchy44 – I agree. But I can't help but feel that all of us that support Perez by coming to this site have a responsibility as well.



  4. 104

    Perez, I speak in all seriousness when I say that there is very serious thought being given to your personally having contributed to her suicide attempt with your publicly posting about her being ugly. Alexa's response on her Myspace page was heartbreaking and so sad, it was clear that her feelings were deeply hurt by your words, but she tried to take the high road.

    Self-esteem is usually the main reason people commit suicide, and your words, if not central to the cause, certainly did nothing to help.

    As yourself what do you get by denigrating someone's looks? What do you gain by way of karma and for the individual's well-being. Alexa is, and will always be a beautiful, talented, smart, and charismatic young woman, and I am ardently sending her positive thoughts for her to heal.



  5. 105

    Re: Dr. Cornelia J. Dogbarker PhD rescinded – Actually she not only read Perez's insults, but she replied to them on her MySpace and it was a very sad one. It hurts to be called such vile things.

  6. Low says – reply to this


    106

    Do you think you had something to do with her depression Perez? You have treated her like dirt in the past.



  7. 107

    Gee…do you think this is related to anything you write about her? I don't know, P-Boy, do you remember what it was like to be picked on for being different?



  8. 108

    How sad. She's so pretty. Hope the best for her.



  9. 109

    whoa shes hot



  10. 110

    Re: AshleeMartin – You just contradicted yourself. You said you love Perez because he tells the truth and then you say Alexa is beautiful. Perez is the one who's been picking on her for her appearance. Good grief.



  11. 111

    so so sad thank god they found her in time!

  12. hlry says – reply to this


    112

    didn't you used to make fun of her for being ugly? perez, how do you feel about yourself today? does this remind you of bullying behavior? now you post that suicide is not the answer. why don't you try being nicer to people too, eh?



  13. 113

    I bet you feel sorry for her now, Perez, you heartless bully…



  14. 114

    Bless her heart. Hello, Parents….you have children!



  15. 115

    hopefully this will help your reflect on the tastefulness of the comments you post about people who are not lady gaga.



  16. 116

    Perez it's people like you, who make comments like you do, that drive people to contemplate suicide. You picked this poor girl to pieces for our "entertainment" and now she may have tried to commit suicide. You need to do some soul-searching my friend. You and media have an impact of the self-esteem of these celebrities - be responsible and try to remember that they are human and have feelings.



  17. 117

    With regard to all the myspace theories. She needs to understand that self esteem should not be dependant on what other people think of you. That is a very dangerous thing.
    Self confidence and esteem is something that is developed by the individual not by others.
    Unfortunately she has probably been flying by the seat of her pants with regard to this since her parents are in their own self absorbed bubble as most public figures are.



  18. 118

    PEOPLE WHO COMMIT SUICIDE ARE DEAD. =/ HOW THE FUCK ARE THEY SUPPOSED TO GET HELP?



  19. 119

    Time to go away, Mario. You've made your money and I supported your doing it your way. But back off on this story. You've been a real jerk.



  20. 120

    I LOST SOMEONE TO SUICIDE ALMOST 4 YEARS AGO. SHE NEEDS HELP BECAUSE SHE'LL TRY AGAIN AND MAYBE NEXT TIME IT'LL WORK. MY HEART AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO HER AND HER FAMILY.



  21. 121

    You'll be nasty about the poor girl another day Perez but today, you are a good man sending an important message so thanks.



  22. 122

    After this you'd better stop, Perez. What a disgusting human being you must be if you do not draw the right conclusions from this and stop bullying people and their looks in the most public way.

    I sure hope the media would now finally realize what kind of a scumbag you really are. The backlash had better be good, too. You deserve nothing but the worst.



  23. 123

    Hmmm. Not that Im defending Perez, but if you're driven to self harm by the comments of a self promoting stranger, you dont belong in the entertainment biz.
    Not that anyone can know if she was actually driven to self harm. Just about ever pill princess Ive ever known had accidentally ODd at least once. Maybe it was an accident.

    This is a forum about the superficiality and yes, the stupidity of celebrity etc etc, and I think commenting on people who are putting themselves out there is totally ok, within that context, including critiquing appearances etc.

    Anyone here who wasn't thinking how much easier it would have been for this chick if she looked like Christie instead of her homely father, please put your hands up because you should be congratulated on your saintliness. Not that Im a fan of the christie-style look as a beauty benchmark. It's just that a lot of other people are, apparently.

    Maybe we should all be a bit kinder in our thoughts and comments toward others, especially about dumarse biological things like appearances. Lack of talent is one thing, and deserves to be pilloried, but deviation from a stupid beauty standard is another thing altogether.



  24. 124

    Whats the classic quote about suicide? A permanent solution to a temporary problem? Tis so for most. But not everyone.
    Sometimes suicide is ok, depending on your situation and your ability to tolerate life. Dont judge people for wanting out, especially without knowing their motivations.



  25. 125

    if i was as ugly as she is, i'd try to commit suicide too.



  26. 126

    People…the ONLY way to stop Perez is to stop visiting his site…that means me as well. Let's STRIKE Perez Hilton's site!!!!!

    As for Alexa, suicide is never the answer. Best wishes to you, honey. Hang in there!!!!!!!!!



  27. 127

    omg i hope she is ok!



  28. 128

    STRIKE PEREZ HILTON…STOP VISITING HIS SITE!!!!
    STRIKE
    STRIKE
    STRIKE
    STRIKE



  29. 129

    wow! hope she can get someone who can help her! poor thing!



  30. 130

    aahhh no way I saw her live once!



  31. 131

    Oh no! It will be difficult but I hope that gets through this and is able to see light in all that is around her and the light within her. I've heard that she is a talented pianist and that would be a shame for the world not to have.



  32. 132

    You dumb asses on here blaming Perez are so fuckin stupid….



  33. 133

    i'm not going to lie perez, i have been checking your website for years now. i usually don't mind the cynical and somewhat crude things you say.
    in all those years i refused to get a nickname to leave comments.
    i think now is the time.

    that girl is beautiful. first of all.
    second of all, i don't think you're in a position to shake an ugly stick at anyone.
    third. this will be my last time looking at your blog.

    you lost a fan, sorry.
    i know it's only one, but this is just down right rude dude.



  34. 134

    Re: zooby – YOU ARE AN IDIOT ZOOBY
    IF PEOPLE COMMIT SUICIDE THEY DON'T NEED HELP BC THEY ARE DEAD ALREADY

    ON A LIGHTER NOTE,
    THANK GOD THEY GOT TO HER BEFORE ANYTHING TRAGIC HAPPENED

  35. t_f says – reply to this


    135

    You basically have called her ugly in the past. Then you say everyone matters. If they do then why do you treat them as if they don't.



  36. 136

    The only justified suicide would be yours douchebag. Suddenly you become sympathetic and compassionate towards her after previously calling her a slut and running her down? You can try to change face but you will always be a fucking worthless coward who cries when bullied but thinks it's ok to bully others. You really need to get your head kicked in again.



  37. 137

    Re: luperdiga – I TRIED POSTING THAT TO HER, BUT THE RE: THING DIDN'T WORK. LOL ANYWAY—

    WHAT EVERYONE ELSE SAID IS PRETTY ACCURATE. THE THINGS YOU SAID ABOUT HER PROBABLY DIDN'T HELP IN HER DOWNWARD SPIRAL. ITS FUNNY HOW ONE WEEK YOU'RE BASHING THE HELL OUT OF SOMEONE, THEN SOMETHING BAD HAPPENS TO THEM AND YOU'RE NICE, AND THEN AFTER THAT COOLS DOWN YOU'RE BASHING THEM AGAIN. CASE AND POINT LINDSAY LOHAN. YOU'RE DISGUSTING PEREZ. AS TO WHY PEOPLE WOULD WANT TO READY ANY BOOK YOU WRITE OR HAVE YOU ON ANY TALK SHOW IS BEYOND ME. YOU'RE A VILE FAT PIECE OF SCUM. YOU'RE LOWER THAN THE STUFF THAT MAKES SCUM. JUST REMEMBER KARMA IS GOING TO GET YOU.



  38. 138

    This makes me so sad, usually Perez's posts don't. I hope she recovers, and gets the help she needs. She's young and talented…so much to live for. Also, it ALWAYS gets better…



  39. 139

    Hypocrite. You tell people they don't matter every single day… until they're hanging by their finger nails from a cliff…. then suddenly they matter to you? Pathetic.



  40. 140

    Re: AshleeMartin – You stupid twit. "And to people who thinks she's ugly, she isn't". Your homo-hero Mario called her ugly and a slut. So fuck off bashing others here when you overlook the obvious hater that owns the site. You're such a brainwashed and empty tard.



  41. 141

    hmmm… do you guys actually read the original post in the new york post… she said in her m.y.s.p.a.c.e page that she didn't like dating and she wanted to be in a relationship… maybe she did this because she felt alone and wanted someone to love… not because perez said she was ugly… people get a grip!!! that was three years ago!!! people don't kill themselves ’cause someone told them they were ugly.. there is something more deep than that…



  42. 142

    Lol Failing at suicide. That must suck. She is sure gonna wake up feeling like an accomplishment.



  43. 143

    'You matter!" oh, so she matters NOW? Easy to say that NOW, obviously not so easy for you to be decent when there isn't tradgedy involved.



  44. 144

    PEOPLE I JUST FOUND OUT THAT SHE DID NOT COMMIT SUICIDE SHE WAS RUSH TO THE HOSPITAL BECAUSE SHE HAD TROUBLE BREATHING NOT BECAUSE SHE WANTED TO KILL HERSELF!!!… THIS STORY IT'S BULLSHIT!!!



  45. 145

    I love her. I'm glad someone found her. She's so gorgeous and talented. It would have been such a waste. I hope she gets well soon.



  46. 146

    Isn't that the girl you called ugly multiple times? You are due for another beating, why not add that to your book fucktard..



  47. 147

    first, this should be private

    second, she is soooo beautiful! Wow.



  48. 148

    Boo Hoo! I ran into this piece of work when on vacation in Turks & Caicos. She was walking around dressed like some streetwalker begging for attention and her attitude was 100 feet in front of her. I feel bad that Christie Brinkley has such a nightmare of a daughter both personality and looks wise…..



  49. 149

    I FIND IT INTERESTING THAT WE ARE ALL BLAMING PEREZ!!!! WHAT A BUNCH OF NON-INTROSPECTIVE, JUDGEMENTAL FUCKTARDS. WE ARE ALL TO BLAME!!!! THINK ABOUT IT, A-HOLES….



  50. 150

    I hope Alexa's alright! She's such a sweet girl…and makes such pretty music… :(



  51. 151

    I hope someone can help her. It's sad that she's having a difficult time and then cope with the media too.
    Feel better, Alexa Ray. I hope you can learn to ignore nasty people.



  52. 152

    I hope she is ok, that is so sad. She looks beautiful in that picture. Hopefully she will get help.



  53. 153

    Why are y'all being mean to Perez? If you don't like him then why are you looking at his page? You should try this, here's what I do when I don't like someone, I don't look at their website. Don't you have anything better to do? Obviously not.



  54. 154

    Wow, I must say I am not surprised. How does a young woman deal with having a beautiful mother and such a talented father? I think Christy and Joel really dropped the ball. They let their egos and career blind them to their daughter's feelings of less worth. Christy stop trying to be gorgeous. You have had your day. Billy, pay attention to your daughter. I am a grandmother of 4 who has experience a lot of life. If you don't get it together you will lose your daughter. Drop out of the celebrity world for her.

    155

    Well, I actually logged on, so I could tell you what a hypocrite you are…since you have said terrible things about her…but after I read some of the other comments I can see I am not alone and other are all over you about your behavior toward her……you are a cruel and shallow jerk… do not every say another thing about her…never, ever, ever…your karma must be soooooo bad..

    to the joel/brinkley family stay strong,



  56. 156

    Haters or lovers of Perez Hilton, we all have a right to voice our opinions on topics on his site. So get the fuck over it.
    and I hope the girl is okay. I don't believe Perez was the only reason why she attempted ( if she even did at all) suicide, but could have added to it? absolutely. Most of the comments about her were just wrong… shes very pretty, and I hope she gets the help she needs. Poor girl.



  57. 157

    Re: sigh234
    I reply all of the time and I've bought from sponsors. I'm with you on this one. I commented earlier on this post, and I came back to check out the comments. It's one thing to gossip about celebrities, it's another thing to rip their looks apart…something that can't be helped. After years of being on this site, I'll never come back again.

    Perez - you are malicious and mean-spirited. You are simply not a good person.



  58. 158

    I'm not too sure what to say here b/c I never even knew she existed…I hope it all works out and wish the family well — I do have to say, she is one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen, ever. She's got a classical look about her that's just *heart flutters* She's beautiful! Those eyes :o :o With that face :o :o

    *
    *
    *
    *got her first girl crush as such an inappropriate time*



  59. 159

    Re: Savannah416 – What the fuck?!! He said she was ugly? What the fuck is the matter with him? I can't imagine anyone saying this woman is ugly. LOOK at her! Her eye are fucking amazing, her nose is freaking perfect - over all she's fucking amazing!! I don't know if it's the artist in me or what, but I'd freaking paint her face on all of my art if she'd let me. She's gorgeous. Fuck perez and his sick-faced icky-pooh 'wifey' gaga (who is truly a very plain woman) - compared to that ugly nutter, this woman is a goddess!



  60. 160

    the first thing I did when I read about Alexa Joel was check out your site. You are her number one critic…you call her ugly when you are no beauty queen yourself…yet you report on this as if you care. Clearly you don't if you trash the girl at every chance you get. You are a waste of life. why don't you swallow a bottle of pills.
    piece of shit.



  61. 161

    Re: agirl1 – People like you make me laugh. Your on a site that spew hate on a daily basis and you've the gall to ask why anyone says anything hateful to this face piece of shit? Really?



  62. 162

    It figures…the post where you where you posted a nasty picture of her is not there anymore. She probably has enough problems as it is with being a child of two celebrities, and then you go and say shit about her for no reason, other than to make your ugly-ass self feel better. What she wrote on her blog is really sad:
    "I've got to get away from this computer! I know it's ridiculous, and I should have a thicker skin by now and just plain NOT CARE, but 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, or rather, wrote that I'm "not that bad, actually, I'm just no supermodel"…"



  63. 163

    bless her heart, she is so homely and marginally talented. I think it has to be a horrible burden to try to follow in her parents footsteps and not be able to make it.



  64. 164

    I was in high school when Alexa Rae was born and have watched her grow up. She's beautiful and talented, and flourished even though she came from a dysfunctional family, like a lot of people. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family. Posters - lay off Perez. He derides ALL celebs and their kids from time-to-time, but I believe he is sincere in his post, and I'm sure he's sorry he ever ragged on her.



  65. 165

    That is too sad.. Praying for her.



  66. 166

    Why would she kill herself? By looking at the picture, she has big boobs!



  67. 167

    This is soo sad. I think having famous parents makes it hard on kids. May prayers goes out to this lovely girl..



  68. 168

    Oh, sweet child of mine get well soon. I hope her parents spend some time with her.

  69. $onia says – reply to this


    169

    Wow, she is so beautiful. I have read that Billy once attempted suicide. I feel for her, and hope that she recovers and receives all the support and help she needs to live her life to the fullest potential. She really is a gorgeous and very talented woman.



  70. 170

    If this girl was 6 feet tall, she would be a SUPERMODEL just like her mother.



  71. 171

    Boo hoo, my rich life's so horrible I must end it now. Idiot can't even do it right. Next time try 2 bottles and a liter of vodka.



  72. 172

    Perez, you harrassing her probally hasn't helped prevent these thoughts, you don't exactly praise her. Atleast your not joking around and poking fun at her like you have with other celebs (hmm….MJ). These people aren't around for you to redicual and in all honesty, I don't think they care what you say because they're out their making something of their lives and your stalking their every move and reporting everytime they go out to dinner or something weird like that. Why don't you back off some of these people and stop faking sympathy!!!



  73. 173

    PEREZ- AS MANY PEOPLE ALREADY MENTIONED, YOU WERE HORRIBLE TO HER ON YOUR WEBSITE. YOU DONT DESERVE ANY OF THE FAME OR MONEY YOU HAVE FROM BEING CRUEL TO PEOPLE. ITS OBVIOUS THAT DEEP DOWN YOU ARE INSECURE AND LOOKING FOR ACCEPTANCE, WHICH YOU THINK YOU HAVE NOW BY COUNTING CELEBRITIES AS YOUR FRIENDS. YOU ARE UGLY ON THE INSIDE AND I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU.



  74. 174

    Re: BabyLuv
    Your comment (although you had the right to make it is mean). And you are apparently a mother….go figure. Anyway, Alexa is beautiful. Oh, and lol at how you originally posted this on People.com, then deleted it. My guess is because it posts under your real name.



  75. 175

    She is a beautiful, talented girl. The early 20's are rough on most of us, but she'll make it.



  76. 176

    This is super sad. On another note, she's quite a hottie.



  77. 177

    Re: cheerioko – Yes. But i'm saying IN MY OPINION. She's pretty. If he doesn't think so. Thats his opinion. I don't always have to agree with him to love him. Get a life(:



  78. 178

    Perez learn some morals and put the breaks on attacking young people especially if they're minors. I don't known Joels age but MILEY.
    She is still young, and even if her behavior is out there u should do the adult thing and take the high road.

    Re: suicideblonde



  79. 179

    She seems like a class act and I love how she stays under the radar… unlike a whole host of wealthy snobs. And I'm glad she's "fine"… that being said, sometimes suicide IS the answer. No one should be forced to stay alive if they don't want to be alive.



  80. 180

    I think she is pretty. She kind of looks like Susan Surandon's daughter. What's that girl's name?



  81. 181

    Re: RandolPants

    Quite the contrary. this is the shit he SHOULD be posting (it's out and gets out anyway)… not the crap about who is fat and who is ugly and who LOOKS pregnant on any given day. This is news. Albeit upsetting.



  82. 182

    Re: Savannah416

    Please, if she's going to kill herself because of a what a fat, ugly, no talent piggish looking gay boy has to say, then that's just ridiculous. Everyone needs to stop giving Perez "credit" for her HER low self esteem. People like this are going to be like this despite what others say and do. Some fucking stranger told me I had a big shnoz once… I didn't up and try to murder myself. She needs to grow a set.



  83. 183

    She never mattered to you before Potato Head. In fact you were cruel to her calling her names. Don't be such an effing hypocrite. Someday the way you treat people will come around and bite you in your flabby ass.



  84. 184

    aww feel better baby girl



  85. 185

    Can you blame her? Uggggg



  86. 186

    This girl has stunning, unusual features that so many here are lacking for certain. Having skipped over any feature tearing up someone's looks, I was curious to know what rubbish was blogged by Perez and posters. I won't say I was shocked, but disgusted with the lack of respect shown by most.
    .
    She has Betty Davis eyes that I pray will smile for years to come.



  87. 187

    Perez you must have been a lonely fat child? You talk so much shit about people and you look like a huge mountain of lard! you gay fat gross fuck.. That poor girl is layin in a hospital bed and you might have something to do with it! One day you will have to deal with all the ugly things you have said and made up about people.. FUCK YOU and i hope you burn in HELL



  88. 188

    FAT GROSS NASTY ASS SISSY



  89. 189

    PLEASE DONT SUPPORT THIS MAN HE IS AN EVIL ASSHOLE..FUCK HIM



  90. 190

    Wow Perez, you personally attack her all the time and now YOU seem concerned. You are a total hypocrite and a HORRIBLE role model for gays!



  91. 191

    hey perez–maybe if people like you quit callling her ugly she won't feel desperate to try again. she is NOT ugly anymore than rumor willis is who you are always making fun of. people can't help how they look. they can control their weight, what they wear, how they act, their hair style, acting stupid etc. but it's never funny when you make fun of what a person looks like. and alex is pretty. and it's unfair to compare her to her mother. for God sakes–she's a model–isn't that tough enough? i sincerely hope she will be ok.



  92. 192

    What a shame she didn't get Christie's looks.



  93. 193

    That's horrible, wonder if she was serious…she should just go underground if she doesn't want to be ridiculed. She's just a target for the mean press…don't know much about her talent but she's very unattractive compared to her mom…
    She's not a beautiful girl and her mom is still beautiful…she's always going to be reminded of that and compared if she wants to be in the spotlight….



  94. 194

    THIS IS NO SURPRISE



  95. 195

    That is so sad. She's absolutely stunning, just proves beauty doesn't equal happiness.



  96. 196

    Wow, some people are full of venom. Would you want to read these comments about your daughter,son etc?. Leave her alone.



  97. 197

    She is so beautiful in the photo above! She really is a lovely woman, and she is talented and she seems smart and sweet. I hope she feels better soon!



  98. 198

    Perez, you got it correct! We all matter! Hope she gets help and sorry her folks did not see the warning signs. Well they get another chance and so does Alexa. Hope she gets the best help and realizes she can make herself happy!



  99. 199

    Re: pfem777@aol.com – How about Billy stop dating women the same age as your daughter. Excellent points you have made.



  100. 200

    Re: kellyjelly – I wasn't thinking this, so I will put my hand up. I was thinking what an attractive and interesting young woman she is.
    Look at those eyes!!!!! hair, facial structure!!!!!
    What I think is unattractive in a creepy way is when mother and daughter use the same dye job on their hair, same hair style, share clothes etc. This girl could have easily fallen into this and it didn't happen.
    I will give that to her parents.
    I think the reason David Hasselhoff groped his daugher when he was intoxicated was because his daughter was basically a prototype of his wife.
    Same with Hulk Hogan and his daughter and his wife and his new girlfriend.
    They want a blow-up doll. But men shouldn't have children with blow-up dolls.
