Alexa was taken to New York's St. Vincent's Hospital where a NYPD source told she is "conscious" and expected to recover.

Billy’s publicist Claire Mercuri said in a statement: “Alexa is stable. Her doctors are assessing her needs and that’s all we can say this moment.”

Other sources told that Alexa has been rocked by her parents' personal problems. She supported her mother through her nasty divorce from cheating hubby Peter Cook, even writing a song about it called "Now It's Gone." Alexa also endured her father's divorce earlier this year from Katie Lee Joel, a chef only two years older than she is.

According to the source, “There was an indication the call came from Alexa’s roommate, but it could have been made by Alexa herself. The caller said the victim had taken “pills” and that they “want to die.”

Investigators at the NYPD’s Sixth Precient are saying the suspected drug overdose may have been part of an attempted suicide, according to the source.
