Alexa Ray Joel released a statement Monday about her heartbreaking suicide attempt, which RadarOnline.com exclusively reported. “I want to thank everyone for their outpouring of love and support,” Alexa Ray said. Her representative also released a statement about the daughter of supermodel Christie Brinkley and singer Billy Joel.
“Alexa is feeling much better,” her rep said of the 23 year old who was heartbroken by her breakup with singer Jimmy Riot. “She is with her family and looking forward to getting back on track.”
The two ended their relationship over a year ago, but she had trouble dealing with the pain, and wrote on her MySpace page about her misery. Riot broke up with her twice last year. “I guess I’m quite the poor sucker for love!” she wrote at the time.
Her mother Christie went through a painful and public divorce recently, and her dad Billy has been quite open about his own suicide attempt. Ironically he was also a struggling musician at the time, and going through a bad breakup.
