Billy Joel Was A No-Show At The Hospital!!!

| Filed under: Sad Sad


Even though Billy Joel was the party assuring the media his daughter, Alexa Ray Joel was "never in any danger" after she attempted to take her own life on Saturday afternoon, he never showed up to the hospital!!!!

Not okay. At all.

Alexa was admitted to St. Vincent's in NYC after her roommate discovered Joel had taken eight sleeping pills in a suicide attempt. Alexa's mom, Christie Brinkley, rushed to be by her daughter's side, but we can't say the same for Billy.

A friend of the piano man said he didn't go to the hospital because it would have become a "circus atmosphere" and was in "constant phone contact" with the hospital, as if that redeemed his absence.

    Couldn't go to the hospital ’cause the little blue pills hadn't worn off yet??

  2. 2

    Maybe this one should be off limits for gossip Perez. Its about a suicide attempt, its very sad. If you add fuel to this fire and in any way contribute to the depression of this young woman, you will regret it for life

  3. 3

    screw U Perez

  4. 4

    All about mommie and daddie.

    You don't know them Perez!
    Mind your own business!
    Don't scrutinize him for something like that. My parents wouldn't show up, either. Would you really want to see someone you love in that kind of condition in a noisy and busy public place?

  6. 6

    are you kidding? whats disgusting is you calling the girl ugly and making her depressed

  7. 7

    Sorry, but it takes a hell of a lot more than 8 sleeping pills to commit suicide!
    Sounds to me like an attention seeking move, or if I was nice I could say 'cry for help'…

  8. 8

    Ripping a young girl to shreds which no doubt damaged her self esteem and thereby contributed to her suicide attempt? "Not okay. At all."

  9. 9

    Perez, usually I don't comment on things, but you have no idea what the circumstances are for this case. Not everything is black and white. Life is about the grey area. Once you figure that out, I think you'll live a much happier life! Good luck and God bless!

  10. 10

    You are WAY crossing the line with this. I can't believe someone has seen you on the street and pummeled your ass into a pulp. You truly are the lowest form of life and I will not be reading your blog anymore.

  11. 11

    Im srry but I understand why he didnt go. She was depressed and adding more drama to the su=ituation could have been much worse for her. Plus maybe the doctors told the family it was better not to come and just wait or call. This scritinization should be off limits to mindless hurtful people.

  12. 12

    Please don't make fun of her looks anymore, Perez.

  13. 13

    You're a fool. It's a personal matter and they probably did what's best for all parties. Beside, it wasn't sleeping pills she took. Get your facts straight.

  14. 14

    no excuse for that..AT ALL

  15. JoeyW says – reply to this


    How is this disgusting? You have no idea what has been going on behind closed doors Mario. No idea at all!!

  16. 16

    exactly. where do you get off calling a father disgusting?
    you don't know everything ( i know, this must come as a shock to you), so whatever the circumstances were i think this is clearly a family matter.

    usually i like your side and i also laugh about your jokes and opinions.

    but this? really disappointing. and i think in this case, you are the one who is "disgusting".
    leave him and his daughter alone.

  17. 17

    Good call jdog04! I completely forgot that Perez bashes her all the time. That and having a former supermodel for a mother DOES NOT help.

    I don't blame her Dad for not going to the hospital. She is probably in a pretty fragile state and doesn't need this story to be blown up even more than it already has. If Dad showed up at the hospital, it most certainly would have become a circus.

    Re: HavanaBanana2 – agreed

  20. 20

    Shut up, Perez! SHUT UP!!!! ENOUGH!!!!

    Know what? I am against death penalty. I even could never bring myself to kill a spider, cause I believe that every living thing has a right to crawl the goddam planet. But you, Perez? If you continue to act the way you do, someone, somewhere, is gonna get so pissed off that you'll end up with way worst than that bitch slap the Black Eyed Peas guy gave you. And I swear to God that on that day, I'm throwing a HUGE party to celebrate.

    You are so inhuman that your mom probably wonders why she didn't abort you when she had a chance… You make me sick…

  21. 21

    That actually kind of makes sense. Maybe he and Christie talked it out and decided not to draw the media attention by having him stay away from the hospital. It was probably better that they not have to fight off cameramen in this stressful and sad time.

  22. 22

    Re: jdog04 – Agreed!!

  23. 23

    I am torn between going to the hospital to support your daughter or not going. The media would have been definitely been a circus. When and why do celebrity's kids become a source of entertainment gossip. HavanaBanana2 has a valid point… suicide attempts should not be a line in a gossip column. Just sad for individuals and their families

  24. 24

    I get the idea behind why he didnt go but I dont necessarily agree with it. If this was a suicide attempt ( which I doubt ) then she needs her folks now more then ever, but if this was just an error or something else then knowing she is ok Billie will take care of his obligations when she gets home. Tough situation to be in.

  25. 25

    I don't blame Joel. He's constantly on the phone with her and he's right, the media will go berjerk if he shows up.

    let it simmer down then he can see her

  26. 26

    HavanaBanana is right. This one should be off limits for you. Leave it alone.

  27. 27

    You know what, it is none of our business.

  28. 28

    And yes, I agree 100%—perez should back off this one and leave this girl alone. She is beautiful and seems like a sweetie– her father is a bit of a tool though—’nuff said.

  29. 29

    I can cut Billy some slack if he was in the Hamptons and Alexa was in the city.

  30. 30

    Not okay at all? disgusting???????

    yeah it was disgusting how you were making fun of this girl not long ago.

  31. 31

    Billy Joel could've gotten into the hospital if he wanted to. It's called a security team, which he has more than enough to pay for. If your daughter tries to kill herself, even if it's just a cry for help, you get your sorry excuse for a Father's ass down to the hospital and hold her hand and LISTEN TO HER. With this kind of attitude, is it any wonder she got so depressed? I do, agree, however, with the request some have made that you please refrain from making fun of this obviously fragile girl, Perez.

  32. 32

    Actually made a log-in as I must state that perez hilton is scum of the earth… None of your business and how dare you judge… You are a very sad person and hope all start to realize this… I so want to type more, but would make me you, and I am happier and better than that…

  33. 33

    I love your site and that you cover whatever you want whenever you want…it takes a lot of balls to say half of the things you do…

    But you still have to have some tact. Maybe you should off this story? It's really inappropriate to discuss (on an ongoing basis) a family's problems with suicide, even for you.

    You could have just said she was in a hospital, but you're taking it wayyyyy too far.

  34. 34

    let them have peace. don't judge a situation you have no insight into other than the fact that you contributed to her depression. lay off. sheez.

  35. 35

    I can see how he would want to avoid making the situation a circus. It's a private family situation PEREZ you need to respect that. Who the hell are you to judge.

  36. 36

    Poor Alexa! I hope she is okay and doing better. It's just the pressure to be as good as a singer as a her dad, a super model like her mom….she needs some counseling to start being happy with HERSELF and not try to live up to her parents. She has so much greatness ahead of her that she's not even aware of.

  37. SusyQ says – reply to this


    Fuck you Perez, how dare you judge Billy Joel when you have done nothing but insult and say say horrible things about Alexa!! You are a lame coward and the biggest HYPOCRITE ever!

  38. 38

    Maybe if she had a JOB or was forced to get one she wouldn't have time to "attempt suicide". She would be depressed because it's Sunday night and Monday is looming - like everyone else!! Get a grip, you're rich and spoiled, what reason do you have to kill yourself!!

  39. 39

    Once again, perez asswipe passing judgement. You don't know the circumstances. Everything you hear is stomped on more than coke. Maybe it was better if he wasn't there, maybe there was a good reason.

  40. 40

    You're the one who's disgusting, Perez!

  41. 41

    you are such an ugly person perez inside and out. next time someone hits you i hope it does a lot of damage.

  42. 42

    Probably afraid he'd drive into another tree again on the way.

  43. 43

    What I don't understand is how could the hospital release Alexa already? I thought they would keep her for a few days and monitor her behavior, especially after a suicide attempt. Her father not being there is no surprise, maybe because I know that my own father wouldn't show up either. Men suck! It's a shame that I am heterosexual. Get well Alexa! You don't need a man or your father to validate your existence.

  44. 44

    In truth, it must be horribly depressing to be the daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley and end up looking like your daddy. It's OK for rich people to be unhappy, folks.

  45. Eggs says – reply to this


    Perez, you big fat pig,
    He wasn't making excuses. He was concerned for his daughter's well being. If only you weren't so fat. And ugly. And hoplessly unable to fall in love due to your uglyness…. Maybe you wouldn't be so gay.
    best, President George W. Bush

  46. 46

    You know what's disgusting?? The fact that you think you have the right to judge these people in a situation like this. His daughter, who you've talked tons of shit about - and no doubt added to her depression, just tried to kill herself. He's trying to protect her from the media circus that would most likely follow him to the hospital and you're completely ignoring the fact that he's been in constant contact with the hospital since she got there.
    Of course you'll never be a good enough person or have enough class to back off, but you should really leave this alone. Suicide isn't something to fuck around with and joke around about. So unless you're gonna say something nice about her and her family, don't say anything at all regarding her suicide attempt.

  47. fiera says – reply to this


    First of all , she is NOT ugly!! Perez, you really are not the person who should talk about other peoples looks, I mean take a hard look at yourself, you sure didn't win the genetic lottery!!! Secondly, leave the family alone!!!

  48. 48

    To all of you that are commenting on how much you hate Perez, Why don't you find something better to do with your lives? No one says you have to come here and read what he says. He's not the only one who's blogging about this so you calling him out on it is stupid on your part. Leave him alone and go get a life.

  49. 49

    Speechless…poor girl…no wonder she has problems!

  50. 50

    You are a slack-jawed idiot. You have no idea what was going on! Report what happened, but keep your opinions to yourself on this one. This isn't a fashion faux-pas, this is a family in need of privacy!

  51. 51

    What's with all the Perez bashing?! Did you not come to his site to read current celebrity news? THIS is current news….are you calling the TV news stations to tell them not to cover it too? You read the article…and POSTED about it….jeez

  52. 52

    This website is probably one of the reasons that she tried to kill herself! And you have the nerve to judge her father for not being there. Maybe he didn't want to draw even more attention to the worst day of his daughter's life. I don't blame him! You are an a$$hole Perez. Don't pretend to care whether she lives or dies.

  53. 53

    Oh and to the person to said Perez could have "just said she was in the hospital"…WTF….then would come the posts saying "WHY?"…what happened….you suck for not giving us the whole story…etc. etc…..get a grip people….

  54. Low says – reply to this


    You start in on Billy Joel you will will get lots of hate fat boy….. Billy knows what's up.. you fucking don't. And you fucking put her there I'm sure with all you hate towards her. I'm really starting for fucking think you are pure evil fat boy Perez.

  55. 55

    You are disgusting. You don't even know what really happened, and u are making judgements without any reason. You are pathetic, i can't believe there is a blogger like you. This site and you should be banned forever.

    Why haven't u talked about THE BLIND SIDE beating TWILIGHT??? are u just avoiding it as well as u did with the success of THIS IS IT??


  56. 56

    Not my place to judge, nor your's Perez.

  57. 57

    It may seem like a shitty thing to do and maybe it is but you don't know the whole situation so maybe you should just shut up. There are lines, perez, and you seem to cross them all the time. Oh, and maybe you should stop calling his daughter ugly!

  58. 58

    Well, you know - the guy is right. The last thing he would want is more attention drawn to his daughter at this time. Sounds sensible to me. No doubt he will spend some quality time with her at home when she is out of hospital.

  59. 59

    Re: shuthefuckup – Clearly all of us who have user names regularly read Perez, so none of us REALLY hate him…but I think we have a right to speak out against a story like this considering it's sensitive nature.

    How can you not expect people to be bothered by this?

  60. 60

    Perez, you are the ugliest fattest man I have ever seen. How dare you comment on others looks when you look like the way you do. Seriously buddy, just state the fuckin facts. Why the hell are you once again stating your opinnions and being so heartless. You dont know this family, you dont know the circumnstances, so just shut the fuck up. Leave them alone in this situation. For the love of God, leave them the fuck alone.

  61. 61

    tasteless, perez… don't act like you care about alexa– you're always talking shit about her anyway. don't be so judgmental, you ass.

  62. kis95 says – reply to this


    What I find disgusting is the fact that he's apparently confirmed the fact that it was a suicide attempt. He could've assured everyone that she's okay, without indulging very private information.

  63. 63

    fuck you perez. you have reached a new low. everyone has reasons for everything in life. you need to back off this story. it's a very personal and private matter. you have no empathy for people because you're a fat miserable fuck face who will never be loved by another human being. asshole.

  64. 64

    Wow, I'm a huge fan of Billy's but I'm a little disappointed in him. F the media that's his daughter.

  65. 65

    perez, fuck you for having the face to try to play a good guy and speak on the girl's behalf. you made fun of her appearance before and contribute depression to girls like her who don't deserve it. these girls, celebrity childs should be able to get on with their lives without someone like you giving them shit. i used to like you before, or at least i liked reading your site… but i'm starting to feel you're a shit head more and more. you hurt other people to make a living. the world could do much better without someone like you, perez… mario

  66. kis95 says – reply to this


    …and I forgot to add: you suck, Perez.

  67. 67

    Can't you leave these poor people alone? How people and families deal with such things is very personal. Who would lend support or grieve for you?

  68. 68

    Shut up perez! Youre such an ass! Billy made that decision because he thought it was whats right for his family, don't bash him when him and his family are going through this!
    And don't you think calling someone "disgusting" is calling the kettle blacker than black?!?!?!
    Go get punched by a Black Eyed Pea.

  69. 69

    the joels/brinkleys deserve a public apology from you and all the other morons who have the balls to think they understand what was going on here. you have no idea of the circumstances!!! step off perez! this is a very very serious subject…very difficult for some family members to deal with. billy has his own demons. perhaps she didn't want him there? perhaps christie didn't want him there? perhaps it is too hard for him to confront the fact that his mental illness has been passed on. to infer that he somehow doesn't love his daughter is asinine and ridiculous!! asshole

  70. 70

    Perez, you are in no position to judge her father. "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Just worry about yourself, Perez, and the role you played in this.It is not OK. At all. For you to go around calling a young girl ugly every chance you get. YOU are disgusting!

  71. 71

    Did you show up at the hospital Perez, you know that this is your fault… The blood is on your hands as much as anyone elses

  72. 72

    Maybe she didn't want him there.

  73. 73

    The daughter is as ugly as a horse. She really needs to go into therapy. I mean, she has it all….

  74. 74

    Lindsay Lohan Next …. ?

  75. 75

    Re: marie-eve – Wow you are crazy, marie-eve. Wishing someone's death like that yet pretending you are a good person.

  76. 76

    It's best to leave this family to deal with their problems.

  77. 77

    I'm sorry Alexa is in that much personal pain. I hope she receives the help and support she needs (and deserves). The focus now should be on her and not her dad.

  78. 78

    Somebody call Massengil, I think they found their new spokesperson!!!

  79. 79

    Piece of shit dad. No wonder she wanted to kill herself.

  80. 80

    Obviously you don't know the whole situation, and obviously Billy loves his daughter. If he had been there all the attention would have been on him, and not his daughter, who was the one that needed it.

  81. 81

    I don't understand why people are upset. Yes, if someone has attempted suicide, people will look on about who visit that person or not, would it be simply trying to explain themselves what went wrong. Maybe it can help the girl to see that the media supports her feelings about her father. If it's not true, it will not hurt her, she will simply figure that the media is not getting the whole story. I rarely ever heard of such a reason to not attends someone being hospitalized as to not attract a media circus. This is the responsability of the hospital to refuse press access. Anywhere beyond the main entry hall, in fact.

  82. 82

    You are usually right Perez…but on this one you're not. No one doubts that Alexa Ray is Billy's priority. Give the family some peace. While they are from Long Island, these are NOT the Lohans. Trust me.

  83. 83

    Wow. Not good. I meanr eally regardless of who you are you put all that aside.

  84. 84

    Mind your own business, disgusting kweer.

  85. 6one9 says – reply to this


    Typical "straight" man “““““ and divorced Dad.

  86. 86

    No disrespect to Billy, but, what kind of father DOESN'T rush to his daughter's side when she's in the hospital after having gone through what she did?!? Poor girl…at least the rest of Alexa's fans have been caring enough to leave her good-will messages… :(

  87. 87

    It isn't disgusting. In some cases, it's sane. You don't know their background with relatives and hospitals.

  88. 88

    Fuck all you people who are coming down on Perez. She put HERSELF in the public eye, that makes her fair game. Lots of celebrities have children that you never see BECAUSE THEY CHOOSE NOT TO BE IN THE PUBLIC EYE. And yes, if a Father doesn't go see his daughter in the hospital after she tries to commit suicide, he's a douchebag and Perez is right to call him out on it. I'm sure now that Perez knows how fragile this girl is he will leave her alone.

  89. 89

    A friend of mine knows Alexa really well and, while I've only been around her a select few times, she is a completely lovely person and is really beautiful. Perez, whenever you add your inane commentary to something like this you make yourself look like a heartless piece of shit. This is such a hard thing for a family to go through, everyone responds in different ways and I'm sure that she is getting a ton of support from her family, there is absolutely NO need to try to start more drama. Leave them the fuck alone and keep your grade school insults and comments to yourself. You fucked up with Michael and you're fucking up here, shut your mouth and keep promoting your poorly written, pointless book.

  90. 90

    Re: shuthefuckup – Why don't you stop wasting your time telling people what to do?

  91. 91

    Maybe the daughter won't know until she reads this…..

  92. 92

    I heard that Billy's dick is bifurcated.

  93. 93

    Good for all of you in standing up to Mario. Alexa is a very sweet girl, and this weekends event broke my heart. I love you Mario, but sometimes you're a real asshole. This is one of those times. You cant imagine what this could be like because you have no kids, so please… back off. This family's been through enough in the last few years. Mind your business, just this once.

  94. 94

    Re: HotBoyVA – Fuck you too for supporting this asshole! Alexa did not put herself in the public eye. I remember seeing pictures of her in newspapers and gossip magazines when she was just a child and that was through no fault of her own! Her world famous parents exposed her to that.So she was in the public eye way before she ever started a music career of her own.

  95. 95

    Of all people who should be backing WAY the fuck off on this topic — you probably have a more solid hand in leading her to depression by attacking her with your "she's no model … just saying" horseshit than you think. I have a friend who met Alexa about 8 months ago and your treatment of her came up. She was total class, he said, and just a regular person who didn't deserve your comments. You should be ashamed, first for being fat and woefully unattractive and calling out others for their looks, and second for even breeching this news with anything more than kid gloves. You are such an idiot that you don't know when to quit. Unbelievable. Crawl back under your rock and leave people alone who aren't doing a damn thing to effect you.

  96. 96

    you may want to stop reporting on this story Perez. You are part of the problem. Billy Joel didn't go to the hospital because of the media attention and he was assured that his daughter was okay and her Mom was with her. You need to leave this story alone because it is too serious for your website. This is not a laughing maatter.

  97. 97

    If I was you I wouldn't dare to comment on that. Your attitude towards that girl for the past years has been despicable and you should be ashamed of yourself.

  98. 98

    I am pretty sure her dad did not tell her to commit suicide. Now get off Billy's case. This attention seeking young lady decided that she wanted to end her life. When since this is normal.

    Blaming this damn man… like suicidal attempt is normal!

    Go to hell already!

  99. 99

    Like some of the other commenters, I won't be reading Perez anymore. You went too far.

  100. 100

    Douche Move B Douche Move!!!!
