Billy Joel Insists His Daughter is
Billy Joel and his wife Christie Brinkley got the scare of a lifetime when their 23 year-old daughter Alexa was admitted to a hospital over the weekend after an alleged drug overdose.

According to some reports, Alexa took eight sleeping pills because she was upset about her boyfriend. She reportedly told her friend she wanted to end her life.

Luckily her friend called 911 on time and paramedics were able to revive her. She was treated at New York’s St. Vincent Hospital before being released later that evening.

And now her famous father’s representative insists she's doing fine: “She is in a stable condition. She is going to be fine.”

A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: “Her friend said Alexa had taken pills and was feeling despondent. She said she wasn’t feeling good about herself.”

We're just glad to hear she's doing better! We wish the family the best during this difficult time.
