Bill Joel and Christie Brinkley Break Silence About Daughter’s Suicide Attempt

Christie Brinkley and Bill Joel's daughter Alexa Ray Joel finally opened up about her suicide attempt.

Alexa tried to end her life last year when she swallowed a handful of sleeping pills after a break-up with her boyfriend. Fortunately, she called the ambulance and was treated at New York’s St. Vincent’s Hospital.

Said Alexa:

“I got caught up in my own head. It was a panic. I didn't want to die. I just didn't want to feel what I was feeling at that moment any more.”

Alexa says that she now has a more positive outlook on life:

“I don't like to believe in depression. I believe if you work hard enough, you can get yourself out of it. I work on myself every day. I'm trying to rearrange my life in a way to feel happy and fulfilled.”

We’re so glad her life is back on track! Suicide is never the answer — go seek help if you are considering it!!
