Alexa Ray Joel Faints on Stage

Alexa Ray Joel In Concert - New York, NY

Alexa Ray Joel, the daughter of Christie Brinkley and Billy Joel, collapsed during a sold out performance in New York this past weekend. In a scary scene, Joel was rushed to the hospital after losing consciousnesses during her performance at the Cafe Carlyle.

According to reports, Alexa Ray, 28, was brought to New York Presbyterian Hospital immediately after collapsing in the middle of her performance. The same reports indicate that Ray was diagnosed with a condition called vasovagal syncote, which blocks blood flow to the brain. The condition, while it sounds scary, does not require treatment and may cause future fainting spells without significant forewarning.

In a statement released by Joel, “I wanted to thank everyone for coming out to support me. I was excited and determined to fulfill my final performance and I really wanted to end my run with a bang, but this was not what I had in mind and hope I have the opportunity to make it up to the wonderful audience very soon. Thanks for all the concern.”

We’re just happy to hear that Alexa Ray is OK. What’s interesting is that reports also indicated that Joel was announced ill earlier that day because she “pulled her neck and back out”. But we do not know to be exact if the two are connected.
