Is Christie Brinkley to Blame for Daughter's Suicide Attempt?


christie-brinkley-alexa-ray-joelWhen something goes wrong, terribly terribly wrong, we generally try to find some kind of scapegoat. Someone or something to take the blame for the misfortune. Well Christie Brinkley, it’s time for you to say “baa, baa, baa”  since there is a new report laying some of the blame of daughter Alexa Ray‘s suicide attempt on your shoulders.

According to, taking a 9-day vacation to Turks and Caicos with her mom and half siblings may have played a part in Alexa trying to end it all. Allegedly she constantly fought with her mom and that may have put her over the edge, she was already bummed out by her recent breakup with her musician boyfriend Jimmy Riot.

But it was apparently never all flowers and honey with the mother daughter duo. A source close to the family said, ”  They have knock-down, drag-out fights regularly over issues relating to Billy Joel. ” he would tell Alexa that her father was an alcoholic and that she had her father’s genes and that she might be an alcoholic, too.”

Oh motherly guilt…ain’t it grand? But Christy didn’t see such a drastic call for help coming, “She [Brinkley] stated that the victim had no health problem, and that she was not aware of how she [Joel] had been feeling,” the police report said.

Hopefully the family won’t be playing the blame game and they all can rally around Alexa and make her better soon.
