23-year-old singer Alexa Ray Joel, daughter or Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley, was rushed to the hospital after an overdose. Police are ruling the incident as a suicide attempt.
Alexa’s roommate called 911 and paramedics were dispatched to her Manhattan home around 12:21 p.m. Saturday, according to the NY Post. Sources told WABC-TV New York that she was suicidal after a recent breakup with her boyfriend, and took an unknown amount of sleeping pills.
Her publicist Claire Mercuri confirmed she was in the hospital, but is currently stable with this statement:
“Alexa is stable. Her doctors are assessing her needs and that’s all we can say at this moment.”
Alexa followed in her father’s musical footsteps and was just beginning to be noticed for her talents with her new single “Invisible.” Here she is singing it on the Wendy Williams show:
Just last Thursday Alexa participated with a number of other celebrities in New York Stock Exchange this Thursday.
