Alexa Ray Joel , 23, was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center after paramedics responded about Advertisement Fire Department officials said she told medics she had taken eight pills and was having trouble breathing.
Two law enforcement sources said the overdose appeared to be intentional, though a person close to Alexa Ray said she only ingested a homeopathic antihistamine called Traumeel. Brinkley, in a blue rain coat, swept into the hospital about 4: Alexa Ray was released a few hours later, a source said.
It was not clear where she was taken. Billy Joel remained in his Long Island home, a friend said. He was in constant phone contact. A source said she has been an emotional wreck since breaking up with her boyfriend, former bandmate Jimmy Riot , a few years ago.
It was her first love. Her own breakup added another layer of stress to the aspiring singer, who has struggled living "in the shadow of two famous parents," the friend said.
This may be a cry for help," the friend said. Her father is one of the biggest pop stars in America. She's trying to find her place in the world. Her latest single is called "Invisible," which her Web site says "tells the story of disappointment over losing love and self-esteem and finding female empowerment. Wish I could be in a relationship again without having to date," she wrote. I'm a homebody and a workaholic I don't like going out and drinking to meet men!!!
I always have to drag myself out the door to get up the motivation to go out, and when I do go out, I don't meet anybody!!! Long before he became a famous musician, a year-old Billy Joel swallowed furniture polish in a bid to off himself.
It's a tough age. Things hit you really hard. A relationship with a girl had ended and I was devastated, and then it didn't work out with the recording we did, and I just figured the world didn't need another failed musician.
