Billy Joel And Christie Brinkley Set The Record Straight

| Filed under: Alexa Ray JoelChristie Brinkley


Many have been speculating and pointing fingers as to why Alexa Ray Joel may have attempted suicide.

And now, Alexa's parents are coming forward to put the rumors to rest by releasing a joint statement.

It reads:

Every parent can imagine the pain and anguish we face as parents of a daughter who is working to recover from the dangerous actions she took while suffering a devastating heartbreak.

As much as we hate dignifying tabloid stories with a response, we feel we must set the record straight to protect our family. The story that ran in the New York Post on December 8th, and has been subsequently spread across the Internet, is filled with vicious lies and attempts to smear our character and that of our beloved daughter.

We ask the public and legitimate media outlets to please "consider the source" and to not further exacerbate our daughter's situation by repeating and legitimizing these false reports.

With much appreciation,
Billy Joel & Christie Brinkley

There you have it. But what was the "real" reason behind it all then?

And more importantly, we hope she's receiving proper care by professionals.

    some things should remain private.

    Perez! It doesnt matter what the "real" reason was! This is not anyone's business but her family! Let this story go!

    A nice statement too bad it had to be made. Just when you had me, you had to insert your questioning as to what is the real reason, but then you did mention proper care.
    Can't we give this young lady a pass so she can just focus on getting better. The weeks following a suicide attempt can be a very vulnerable time.

    When he says consider the source, that means you. Tabloids and douchebag gossip bloggers don't check sources, they publish any lie they can think up. No one with half a brain would take anything serious from these media bottom feeders.

  6. 6

    Hopefully she puts her family first. Suicide is never the answer for the people left behind wondering what they could have done. I Pray she gets all the help and support she needs.

  7. 7

    oh poor girl.. tried to commit suicide with homeopathic medicines… what a surprise that she did not succeed! I think ppl who are so dumb that they try to kill themselves with homeopathic meds deserve to die for the greater good of human genome

  8. 8

    love how they're making this story about them. No wonder their kid is so fucked up.

  9. 9

    They basically just completely backed up the Post's story. They would have done better to stay quiet.

  10. 10

    Ummm, although I feel bad for peering into their private life, I have a hunch that she simply mixed by mistake some meds that shouldn't have been taken together. Even natural products or certain foods can cause a bad reaction to meds. Much love Alexa!!!

    Next porkezzzzzzzzz

    Other than vague references to lies, etc., I don't see how their statement set the records straight.

    Just leave the girl alone, Perez.

    who cares what the "real reason" is you fucken idiot- just as long as she gets any and all the help she needs…….

  16. 16

    get well soon!

  17. 17

    Bullshit Perez; you could care less!!

  18. 18

    I think this chick is prettier than her mom. Almost exotic looking. Never got Christie. Plain Jane looking. Get well Alex. You have a hell of a lot to be happy for. Just having two mega rich parents who care about you and being able to live a charmed life of luxary would be enough to make most people walk on sunshine 24/7.

  19. 19

    It doesn't matter what her reasons were, as long as she gets help if this was an attempt. And a lot of the time, there's more than one reason for someone to attempt suicide.
    You always tell them to get help and that they're worth it, but it's after they attempt something or land themselves in hospital. And that's after you make fun of them and point out how shitty they are. So maby people like you are the reason they feel they have to take that way out.

  20. 20

    let it GO, Asshole. This is not a cool matter to gossip about. Damn, you are truly evil.

  21. TCYB says – reply to this


    A heart break, moron. You had the nerve to print a reporth that it was because of her mother. You are scum.

  22. 22

    Love how they blame it on a boyfriend. They keep making the same mistake. Take some responsibility you self-absorbed egotists. You are shitty, shitty parents.

  23. 23

    sources say, we dont care. Life is so short and for someone who has a world of oppritunities at her feet it makes me think of how much a douche billy joel is. I am sure he was a terrible father, he has not or at least has not been a good person in the past…My father in law actually punched him before for making passes on my mother in law haha remember that billy!

  24. 24

    Bravo Perez!

    This posting is a lot more credible than what you posted yesterday concerning Alexa Ray Joel!

  25. 25

    How about this for a reason: she was sad a had a lapse of judgment.

    Beyond that, her medical history is nobody's business but hers.

  26. 26

    "Legitimate media outlets" aka, NOT YOU. You are part of the reason this situation has been exacerbated. How can you not see that?

  27. kis95 says – reply to this


    The "real reason" behind what? Her suicide attempt? If it were any of your (or ours) business, then I'm sure they would've addressed it. Just leave it alone.

  28. 28

    …maybe it's because she has her father's face and not her mothers.

  29. 29

    Re: Orangina – They didn't say it was because of a boyfriend, just that she suffered a "devastating heartbreak". Women can feel heartbroken over other things besides men. Either way, glad to hear she is getting help.

  30. 30

    Howard gave the reason I believe on the day you were on his show…. She broke up with some dude and was dispondent. Now everyone leave the poor kid alone

  31. 31

    The "real reason" is none of our business.
    They are dealing with serious PERSONAL and PRIVATE matters. Period

  32. 32

    Media fucktards like you are often the reason these young starlets eat handfuls of pills. So, keep asking "what's the real reason" maybe you can push this nice looking young girl to eat some more, or jump off a building, what a great story you'd have to blog about for a week. Stupid fucktard, you should try eating a handful of pills so we can all come to your site and make comments and speculate WHY O WHY did the fucktard kill himself. I think it's because you're so very unhappy with the shit body you were so unfortunate to be dealt. Yes, thousands of people look at your website, you've probably made tons of money…But you're still a shit taco and failure at life.

  33. 33

    She has her dads looks and her mom's musical talents.

  34. 34

    is she adopted?

  35. 35

    Re: Orangina – Nicely said. Brinkley is a documented certifiable mess.
    I hope she has good friends.

  36. 36

    I think the point Perez is for you to shut up and stop speculating and that ITS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS! You have been intensly cruel to this young woman every chance you have had when you post about her. Leave her alone and let her recover. That's the point you moron.

  37. 37

    Re: Orangina – They didn't blame it on him and I think you are a shitty, shitty person for coming to an immediate judgement on 2 people that you don't know and will never meet. People like you and Perez are what the term "vicious" is about.

  38. 38

    Re: Stalincat – The same could be said for people such as yourself. So make the world a better place and do us a favor and leave it would you? Asshole.

  39. 39

    Its nobody's friggin business but hers and he family's why she did it! Jeez this poor woman. Could you imagine trying to end your own life and pain and it not happening only to wake up to zero support and vicious stories from the whole freaking planet? If this was me or one of my sisters my dad would be kicking in some heads.

  40. 40

    Hey Perez…weren't you making fun of this poor girl last year to the point where she had to take to her blog or something similar to defend herself? Not that this is actually YOUR fault, but really…you're acting like you feel so bad about her situation, and you were berating her last year for everything from her looks to her singing talent. So which is it? Are you sincere in wishing her a speedy mental recovery, or are you secretly laughing because of all the horrible things that you had to say about her? I don't understand you. I agree with some of the previous posters…let it go, and let this poor woman heal in private. Jesus Christ.

  41. 41

    OH please she attempted to kill herself because
    she looked at herself and said shit…my mom's a supermodel
    and I came out looking like a short Troll
    hell anyone would do the same thing

  42. 42

    The real reason is NONE of your business. They should have said the reason was the malicious comments directed at Alexa from certain "celebrity" bloggers that drove her over the edge.

  43. 43

    Alexa, Daddy drinks because you cry.
