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.
