Reports this weekend claimed that Alexa Ray Joel, daughter of musician Billy Joel and model Christie Brinkley, was hospitalized after apparently attempting suicide.
Sources now claim that Alexa, who is a musician, was having trouble with her boyfriend and that she took a homeopathic medicine called Traumeel, which led to her hospitalization.
“She ecame very worried about breathing, which is why 911 was called,” the unnamed source told People.
“She was apparently distraught over an argument with her boyfriend,” another unnamed source said.
Alexa has said she has struggled with depression, and has used her MySpace page to complain about trouble with men in the past.
“I can get very dark,” Alexa told People last year. “ I can get very in my own head and depressed as many other artists can.”
Get well soon, Alexa. (People)
