They must be on good terms!

Billy Joel was spotted at the premiere of Last Play At Shea at the Tribeca Film Festival not only with his daughter Alexa Ray Joel, but also his ex-wife Christie Brinkley.

His other and more recent ex-wife Katie Lee was also present, but the two didn't pose for pictures together.

But it's nice to see when divorced couples can get along after the fact — good for them!

Billy Joel And Christie Brinkley Set The Record Straight

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.

Blame 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 And Peter Cook Reach A Settlement

Christie Brinkley is now "completely vindicated" according to her lawyer.

It appears that the model and her ex-husband Peter Cook have reached a settlement in their ugly custody battle over their two children, Jack and Sailor.

Cook's original motion requested that Brinkley "undergo anger management, for the appointment of a parenting coordinator, and for the children's passports to be held by a third party," none of which are in the settlement.

Brinkley also withdrew her counterclaims for the sake of her children.

Even though they probably still HATE each other's guts, at least they were able to come to some sort of mature and mutual conclusion.

Jon and Kate take note!

Christie Brinkley vs Ex: Arrest Him!

As we mentioned last year, hottie Christie Brinkley filed for divorce from douchebag and cheater Peter Cook.

And, now, a year later, the two had to face each other again in a Long Island courtroom yesterday.

According to Cook, he claims Brinkley is trying to ruin his relationship with their kids, Sailor and Jack.

One of his allegations is that Brinkley ruined his trip with his son to Egypt. Jack was supposed to go on a school trip to Egypt chaperoned by his dad, but when Brinkley failed to provide the passport, they had to miss the trip.

Cook adds, "She is doing everything she can to ruin my relationship with my kids. I am trying to move on with my life and I wish she would do the same."

However, Brinkley's attorneys reveal: "Peter Cook's claim that Ms. Brinkley refused to turn over her son's passport is without merit and totally disingenuous." Turns out Brinkley was a few hours late as her friend's mom had just died and Cook refused to go pick up the passport from her home.

As for Cook's lawyers, they recommended Brinkley get jailed! Along with additional child visitation privileges for Cook and anger management classes for Brinkley.

Brinkley, however, claims Cook violated the divorce settlement by going on various talk shows and allowing his current girlfriend to spend time with their kids.

Brinkley's attorney adds, "We're here because Peter Cook filed what we believe is a frivolous application to the court. What Christie Brinkley wants is what's best for her children. She wants to get this resolved fairly and get it all behind her."

And she also thinks Cook should be jailed! And pay for her legal fees obviously.

Let's hope both sides reach an agreement soon or this could turn out to be a long court case.

Christie Brinkley Done With Marriage!

One year after her messy divorce from cheater Peter Cook, Christie Brinkley vows she'll never marry again.

"With what I know, I don't see why anyone would get married," says Brinkley, who has endured four divorces.

The supermodel continued, "I totally believe in true love, and I think couples should celebrate their love over and over again [but] right at the beginning of a relationship, I would formalize an exit strategy."

How romantic!!!

Her only regret was that her custody battle was so public. Brinkley says she found comfort with her second ex-husband, Billy Joel, who is godfather to her two children with Cook.

He even babysits for her!

"I haven't always followed my own advice, but I've always believed that you've got to be whole before starting with someone new. You've got to find that inner peace. I'd have to feel, 'Okay, the time is right to be open to that again.'"

Christie has no new man in her life…yet!

Even the most beautiful people have problems in love!
