Blame Brinkley?

| Filed under: Sad SadAlexa Ray JoelChristie Brinkley


Ouch! This is pretty harsh!

It seems that a nine day vacation to Turks and Caicos with her mother, Christie Brinkley, and half siblings Sailor and Jack led Alexa Ray Joel to attempt suicide!

She may have already been depressed from her breakup with musician Jimmy Riot, but it was the constant fighting of the past few days that put her over the edge.

Alexa and her mother have had a rocky past and continually fight over her father, Billy Joel. Christie will constantly bash Joel in front of Alexa, while forcing her to defend him.

"They have knock-down, drag-out fights regularly over issues relating to Billy Joel," said a source close to the family. "She would tell Alexa that her father was an alcoholic and that she had her father's genes and that she might be an alcoholic, too."

And Brinkley would always be on Alexa about her weight!

According to a former family employee, Brinkley demonstrated to a 10-year-old Alexa, "This is how you eat a brownie without gaining weight," while she chewed the baked good and spit it in the trash.

But, her mother claims to never have seen the suicide attempt coming!

"She [Brinkley] stated that the victim had no health problem, and that she was not aware of how she [Joel] had been feeling," said the police report.

Alexa is said to be staying with her father and canceled her scheduled performance at the New York Stock Exchange's Christmas-tree lighting ceremony on Wednesday.

"Alexa is feeling much better. She is with her family and looking forward to getting back on track," said her rep.

We sure hope so!!!

    Christie Brinkley's got problems, believe u me

  3. 3

    and then she had to put with you publicly bashing the way she looks. quit trying to shift this - everyone who posts here has said you may have had something to do with by destroying her self -esteem so now your trying to claim it was her mother who put her down. as if its not bad enough you made her life miserable your now trying to destroy her family.

    too bad she looks like her dad….what a bad break.

  5. 5

    Wow… It must be hard to have such a judgemental narcissistic mother. I feel for Alexa. She is unique and beautiful in her own way.
    Oh and not to be mean but…. Christy's other daughter Sailor looks to me like shes gonna have a little weight problem of her own. Boy will Christy be upset.

  6. 6

    I find that hard to believe. I always felt Christie AND Billy loved Alexa with all their heart. As crazy as they were with their own relationships I never once felt Alexa was anything but loved by her parents. Alexa always seemed so well adjusted too. Can't believe this one….

  7. 7

    I never quite bought the look-how-perky-I-am image of Brinkley.

  8. 8

    women who instill eating disorders in their daughters ought to be brought up on charges of mental cruelty and abuse. what a fucking bitch.

  10. 10

    What a twatwaffel. How many husbands has she had? Gee I wonder why.

  11. 11

    There's nothing sadder than a mom who in-forces things that are eating disorders waiting to happen and who puts her daughter through what Christie did to Alexa. Sad, just sad!

  12. 12

    Re: tigrrrlilly
    That would be a lot of mothers up on charges. My mom does the same thing with my little sister. When it's good, it's good. When it's bad the comments fly. Last time I checked mom, you're kind of a fat ass with cankles, why do you have to talk shyt about your daughter?

    Get out of their fucking lives during this sensitive time with a bunch of statements that are nothing but conjecture.

  15. 15

    Re: tigrrrlilly – Yousure are quick to judge based on something printed on Perez's site. Doesn't automatically make it true as you should well know.

  16. 16

    Christie Brinkley has always seemed unhinged to me. Her manic over-smiling never quite looks right!

  17. 17

    I blame the mother ……

  18. 18

    But,, let us face it…The girl IS as ugly as a horse ….

  19. 19

    Alexa needs a nose job, teeth work, and ….well, let us just say quite a bit to look like her mum….

  20. 20

    I have known Christie forever and she is the MOST incredible mom and friend!!! This is a vicious attack against a stellar mother when the family is down and a shameless and disgusting pack of lies. The Post has reached a new low and should be held accountable for such a lack of integrity and a lack of fact checking!

  21. 21

    perez,last night a clip was shown of alexa saying it is real hard to be compared to her mother.and when perez hilton actually calls you ugly.it,s very hard to ignore.that perez was from her lips.and you have been mean to her.so accept a big part of the blame..

  22. 22

    Why doesnt she just move in with her father?
    He could buy her a whole NYC townhouse with a snap of his fingers. Why live with someone you cant stand when your family is L O A D E D?
    Get outta there gurl

  23. 23

    Again, I blame the mother ….

  24. 24

    Re: Be-Atch – Well your moniker certainly fits you. Great way to show how insecure, and narcisstic you really are. Because its all about how you look…..(not). I'm sure she doesn't want to look like her mother. How about she just be happy with who she is and how she looks without becoming a plastic bitch like you?

  25. 25

    Re: MyOpinionOnly – so according to you until we all get our information verified by another source we are all supposed to refrain from commenting? if you are going to assume that perez is wrong then why bother reading his blog? do you just come on here to tell everybody to keep their mouths shut? what's the point then?

  26. 26

    Re: Be-Atch – I'm as shallow as the next person but I'm sorry i don't think this chick is bad at all!I think she's really cute.

  27. kaylo says – reply to this


    'Blame Perez Hilton' is more like it!

  28. 28

    If true….. I get so incensed when I hear of parents using their children against each other in divorce situations. FUCKED UP!

  29. 29

    Re: RedWingsFan
    i agree. i think alexa is actually more attractive than her mother. christie brinkley looks like a vacuous blonde stick-like fembot. nothing interesting or captivating about her looks. alexa's face has charm, character and she looks like an actual real girl. much prettier in my opinion. and she's probably much more interesting to talk to.

  30. 30

    So Alexa had to put up with her mother pressuring her about weight at home but with you, Perez, talking about her weight and appearance publicly. I for one would believe the public attacks would cause more harm.

  31. 31

    Re: Be-Atch – Let's see a picture of you. I'm sure you are quite ugly yourself. Your personality sure is.

  32. 32

    The ugly one is Mario, ugly on the outside and ugly/twisted on the inside. Just looks to me like he grew a thick skin. There is a way in though, he doesn't like being punched! What kind of dickhead tweets that he's been assaulted and asks other people to ring the police for him. The guys not a full shilling. Oh and Mario, thing is, she's not even ugly. Carrying on reporting on it is only his way of continuing to take the piss out of her.

  33. 33

    i am totally gonna use that brownie trick

  34. 6one9 says – reply to this


    I'm fighting with my oldest daughter as well!!!!!! So this is no biggie IMO. With ALL that $$$$$$$$$$ bitch has “““““ get your kid some therapy!! My daughter is a douche`bag too“` but no way would she try and take her life.

  35. 35

    Re: MyOpinionOnly – .. Just say'n. And F.Y.I., this cat is plastic-free…a Natural beaut-ee !

  36. 36

    Re: RedWingsFan – …Perhaps a trip to Merle Norman would 'do it' ….

  37. 37

    I feel bad for Christie's kids. LIttle Sailor isn't model thin either, and I can only imagine the pressure Christie puts on her. Alexa is beautiful just the way she is and doesn't need "plastic surgery" like some of these posters say…

  38. 38

    It's responsible parenting when you have open conversations with your children and make them aware that depression and or alcoholism is hereditary. I do have to wonder about a dude who marries a woman young enough to be his daughter, and has alcohol related accidents. I also wonder about a woman who is married, what, 4 or 5 times. I feel badly for Alexa. It all can't have been easy.

  39. 39

    I've always thought that Christie Brinkley is not as innocent as she pretended to be throughout her marital problems.
    There's something so phony about her that bothers me.

  40. 40

    I never have liked that bitch Christie Brinkley. Every time she dumps a guy she goes out of her way to make herself the damsel in distress and make her ex look like a dirtbag. You can tell from looking at her that she's frigid as hell. If these reports are true I can't imagine how poor Alexa suffered all these years. As a woman I could NEVER treat my child like that.

  41. 41

    Am I the only one who's just waiting for Brinkley to find a way to blame this on Peter Cook?

  42. 42

    Brinkley is not to blame. I saw them at the Provo airport. I was on my honeymoon. Brinkley was nice and normal while ALexa was acting like a bitchy diva gone wild. I think the kid needs a kick in her ass and an attitude adjustment.

  43. kahlo says – reply to this


    All you fuckers calling her ugly… I dare you to post a picture of yourself for everyone to comment on. You fucking cowardly ignorant twats! Shallow shallow people you are! Do you idiots not realize that LOOKS are the least important thing about a human being? What the hell is wrong with this bloody world you all live in! Move to another planet already!

  44. 44

    What is wrong with Christie's view on talking to her daughter about her fathers alcoholism ? There is nothing wrong with making your children aware of their genetic predispositions. In fact, it is irresponsible not to. Best to create this awareness while they are young and teachable and your influence is still effective on their decisions.

  45. 45

    Christie sounds like a bitch and a shitty mother. Everyone knows you don't bash your child's father in front of them, it's damaging to them and it's cruel.

  46. 46

    Hope not - that would be truly dire.

  47. 47

    I completely believe it, Christy Brinkley is all fkt up. Anyone ever notice that all her ex husbands, she divorced them immediately at the drop of a hat once the slightest sign of money troubles? She was married to Rick Taubman for like a month then dropped him the scond she found out he wasn`t as rich as he said. Then when Billy Joel got 10 million ripped off from his manager, bang, dropped him the next day. She`s a freakin high maintainence ho.

    she looks like her dad, but is still pretty.

    speedy recovery Alexa don't listen to some of the assholes out there

  51. 51

    Are you all fucking morons? People don't kill themselves because they are a bit sad, they do it because they have a chemical imbalance called depression.
    Seriously, none of you would kill yourself because people kept saying that you were ugly, so why are so happy to believe that this kid would?
    Depression is a chemical imbalance - simple as that. If somebody tries to kill themself because their parents are a bit crap or they broke up with a boyfriend, well, good riddance to them! Stop ruining it for the rest of us with real depression - it's not about life circumstances, it's about chemicals. Learn a thing or two, Perez Dumbass.

  52. 52

    I call bullshit.

  53. @v@ says – reply to this


    Christie could have just saved herself all the trouble of the serial divorces and simply worked it out and stayed with Joel. I love his body…of work.

  54. 54

    All pop star/model couples should be sterilised.

  55. 55

    I think Alexa is beautiful, just look at the picture that is posted… who looks more real, and who has a fake smile plastered on her face? How can mothers treat their kids so cruelly?
    And Perez, I agree with glamourextra, you are so totally deflecting right now and trying to make Christie look bad, when you bashed Alexa so many times. Now we are supposed to forget that? Just like you bashed one of Tiger's mistresses today, calling her a horse-face. Karma's a bitch, and it's unfortunate that you spend your life's energy trying to bring out the worst in people, but then all this 'controversy' gets more people checking out your site, doesn't it?? Sad, wish you were more loved by your mother, you wouldn't have to get attention this way… go ahead fattie swallow the brownie

  56. 56

    you don't EVER blame another person for a suicide or suicide attempt. no one person MAKES you do it. it's a combination of things that a person doesn't handle right. you chose how to deal with your problems. and sometimes people make the HUGE mistake of trying to take their lives. as we've all heard–it's a permanent soluton to a temporary problem. and i'am sure as soon as the person does it they regret it. then the people left behind are suffering and i don't think that's what the person was intending.

  57. 57

    It's BS to blame this on Christie. Alexa is a grown woman. Most of us have shouldered family burdens but we don't attempt to kill ourselves. Alexa obviously has problems she needs to work out in therapy and perhaps medications. But it is downright cruel to say that this is Christie's fault.

  58. 77777 says – reply to this


    Writing something like this is completely irresponsible. This is someone'e life, someone's daughter, sibbling, friend. She almost died, respect her privacy. This could be what throws her over the edge - you writing shit that you cannot possibly back up or shouldn't even try. Where's your respect for human life? You are a complete asshole.

  59. 59

    More proof that models are evil.

  60. 60

    OK you screwed up moron. Any responsible parent who’s spouse is an alcoholic (active or recovering) is being a responsible parent by pointing out to their children that Alcoholism is, in part, heredity; and that offspring of alcoholics have a much higher risk of alcoholism. With regard to teens, who like to cross the line and press the boundaries, this discussion is even much more important if you are a responsible parent. HOW DARE YOU imply that this type of conversation either implies that Christie is a bad parent, or that it, in part caused her suicide attempt. Brinkly was not badmouthing Joel – she was educating her daughter, but I’m sure that Alexa, like most teens didn’t give a shit or thought “it won’t happen to me”.

    Keep your trap closed when it comes to speculation – you a$$ wipe. You have no clue what you’re talking about and you definitely do more harm than good.

  61. 61

    Perez - You are losing it!!!!

    This item is NOT true!

    Some of your articles today & yesterday are at least a day behind other sources.

    I am reading stuff I have read elsewhere!


  62. 62

    Given Christie Brinkley's ADVANCED age, she should be a better mother than she is. She's also made some strange choices in husbands. I think this woman's main problem is that she perpetually fancies herself twenty-something, and has a difficult time looking beyond that.

  63. 63

    Ah, Celebs are just like us. My mom and I fight and when we do I feeling like killing myself so I can just end it all so I wouldn't have to listen to the BS she barks out. I totally understand Alexa she just had the gutts to go through with it I don't. Wish I had. Sometimes it could be too much!

  64. 64

    Re: starr07 – Do you live in the Brinkley or Joel household, you twat? What does advanced age have to do with anything about this story? Kids should be raised by beautiful teen moms? That story usually comes to a successful conclusion. You question Christie's relationships? What about Billy's? What about yours, you moron? Anyone who logs into and especially posts on Perez's website is not white bread. Since you're so judgmental about Christie, why don't you be honest about your own love life. Please do tell all about our perfect love life. Are you LDS? Fundamental? Arranged marriage? Or just too fruggly to have ever hooked up with anyone?

    There is nothing worse for your self-esteem than having a parent put you down; what a shame.

  67. 67

    I feel for Alexa having to be a child of Christie Brinkley & Billy Joel…Neither of them appear to be great roll model parents with their multiple marriages. I think that Alexa is a beautiful girl & seems to have talent in the voice department. I wish her all the best & continued health

  68. 68

    If it's true CB is bashing Billy Joel to her daughter, then I feel for Alexa. I'm living the same thing right now with my mom, who is being divorced by my dad after 40+ years of marriage. Jesus Christie, he's been out of your life how long?
    Get the fuck over it already.
